Why even waste your time writing an arrogant answer like that?

.. In my experience, some of the models and leather types (lamb is more forgiving than goat or calf in this repsect) tend to cause a rather pronounced "fold" on the shoulder tops. And they do not go (all the way) away with time. It might be a conscious part of the design, but I typically prefer a more smooth and round should myself.

I have been debating the fit on my toj recently, there is a prominent neck space that is a result of some sort of miss-sizing but I can't tell if its something I am obsessing over or not, what do you think?



Edit* my upload is rotated all funny and flickr is down, will fix in a few.

Shoulders across the back too tight?

Not really, I honestly think it's a result of the length and bottom opening being a bit short/ small because when I pull the jacket up above my waist so that there is no strain it sits great around my neck. It not horrible, it just doesn't fit snugly around my neck, it has a decent collar gap.

I think you're just being pretty nitpicky. Nobody would really notice that at all, and in the winter months when you wear cardigans or button ups it will be even less of a problem. I can't tell how everything else fits though.

Dude isn't that the baseball jacket? Why don't you just unbutton the bottom couple buttons? Then it won't rest on your big booty.

The bottom buttons are unbuttoned, I do have a ghetto booty. It's not like I don't like it, its just the one thing that keeps it from being perfect and I can't stop thinking of it.

Finally cool enough to rock my A2, fuck yes.

I think I might switch my order from a black calf MDR to a brown lamb A2. I just can't seem to commit to wearing monochrome colors. So that leads me to a few questions.

 

Are there snaps on the collar to keep the collar nice and folded or do people train and fold them collars to get it like that?

 

What happens to the shearling over time and how do you treat it so that it doesn't become matted and disgusting. How warm is the lamb compared to calf?

Couple of months old.

should I change my order to a dr 2010 instead of an mdr?

Do what feels right in your heart. We must emancipate ourselves from inner slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds. Follow your faith.

that's one way to look at it.. to me it was kinda like "well those belts look cool"
