You can make a change up until the point where your jacket is going to get made, which will be a while from now. If it is as you say, then you should have no problem with the 44/46. To me, it sounds like the 44/46 will be a very slim fit, and the stock 46 would be comfortably roomy (not overly). If he didn't advise against it, you should be fine either way.

Really having trouble deciding between a MDR and a BCDR. I wear a lot of loose or crew sweaters and layers, not as many button downs as I used to. MDR is more classic, but I feel like it will be really hard to find a nice BCDR after TOJ closes. Anyone have suggestions? My neck is kind of long so I'd prefer something that makes it look thicker. 

 

alright now im thinking about the 2010 dr. I suppose fur collars no longer come with them?

I'd listen to Charly and go 46, it's easier to gain weight (and be healthier) to fit into a jacket rather than losing weight (unhealthy considering your weight already).

 

@dude above me: BCDR because at least it hides some of your neck which would make it look less giraffe-ish

I've been thinking about the whole potential of gaining a bit of weight so I'm starting to drift to getting my order changed to a stock 46. I think I just need to sleep on it and stop fretting. I appreciate all the advice guys.

 

On another note, it kind of sucks that this will probably end up my only TOJ purchase (unless I can find one second hand). I've always liked the MR. At least I got something in though!

Shiiiiiit I ordered mine like 3 days later, guess I'm waiting for at least a few more days?

It's been 16 weeks for me too :o Question, since Charly seems busy and hasn't replied in days, if a friend of mine ordered for me, will they send the tracking number to her? since it's her email linked to her paypal account. I've spoken to Charly through my own email, so he knows I'm affiliated with her.

Sally sends out the shipping emails now (not Dan), and probably ships the product also...so hard to say.

ordered on june 12....no shipping yet.  do jackets get shipped at various times each week or is it mainly a once a week type of thing?

post #34873 of 39236

Getting close to hitting the estimated wait time for my wool MA-1.  I wanna order a DR before the cutoff so I hope the MA-1 gets here soon so I can be sure the measurements I sent to Charly for the MA-1 will work out.

I ordered my black/black toj0 on June 11th! No tracking yet, though... Hopefully mine is also on its way.
