Oh, no! I like your MDR--it's just that it looks so close to black that I feel my dark blue MDR might be redundant with my 2010 DR

Your blue MDR looks really good! He's probably just worried the navy is very similar to black for him so he's changing it to a more stand out color

I always felt the 2013 dr looks closer to the mdr especially with the zipper configuration.

Going to meet with the tailor downtown on Thursday to see if he can fix my jacket. Fingers crossed.

Sorry to hear about your ill-fitting jacket Distorbiant.  Hope all goes well at the tailor.

would you be able to post your jackets measurements so i can compare with what i've ordered.  I've also got a large taper from shoulder to mid, but maybe it's not as severe in terms of the percentage of total width/circumference if you're a lot thinner than me.

AFAIK that model never actually became available.

Correct.

Wool MA-1 arrived. High quality materials and heftier/warmer than I thought- lining is awesome. Got a 48 with 46 lengths - shoulders fit right but pit to pit feels tight when zipped (chest pocket gets stretched open a bit).

 

Debating between re-ordering another at 50 (46 length), or keep and get used to this.

If it's too tight you should probably re-order, lest you regret it forever.
post #34060 of 39243

Yeah I say re-order unless you plan on losing weight 

post #34061 of 39243

when did you order?

post #34062 of 39243

I ordered towards the end of April.  I'm leaning towards using it as a motivator to lose some weight. I could probably lose an inch in p2p size before the re-order gets shipped out.

I sized up compared to my previous fits and I think it looks much better this way for my frame.

Also re: the waist suppression, the fit is supposed to be larger at the bottom hem vs. the midsection, which makes sense. Your hips should be wider than your waist, unless of course you are carrying a massive gut.

 

Thanks for replying Ari, sounds like it wears well and you are still enjoying it, which is great because it looks good.

 

What size is that if you don't mind me asking?

 

Regarding suppression yes my hips are wider than my waist (although the Johnny bravo reference com another poster was funny as :) ) I think the confusion comes in because the TOJ site says 'waist' when if you think about where the jacket sits for that style I guess they really mean hips - which would make sense with the measurements.

How about you pm him this shit instead of clogging up the thread? There's no buying/selling in this section of the forum.
