I've wanted an MDR for a while now but recently I've been thinking about dressing more for my body type rather than just wearing pieces I like. Shifting my aesthetic from what I would want to wear more to what looks better on me.

It's true that DR style jackets tend to accentuate the width of the torso to some degree. It's because there is a ton of extra material in the front so when worn open, especially, it makes the jacket look that much wider, as if to accommodate a wider torso.

Motos are tricky because, yes, they can be better suited for "stocky" builds but they can also work against them if not configured right; band collars and cropped jackets are not good for stocky people. Go with a collar and get the length right and you should be good.

Keep in mind that anything that with horizontal lines or that accentuates the chest may not be good. I know Drew says 4zip > 2zip but I think in the case of stocky guys, I think the 4zip can sometimes bring unwanted attention to the breadth of the chest.

I think the collared CWU could be a good choice for stockier (not fat) guys as the big pockets on the stomach can balance out a wider chest. Just don't go too tight on the measurements or it can bunch up and get weird and work against you.

Also, stay away from quilting or anything that accentuates the shoulders.

great jacket

 

"Ewwww" isn't a matter of knowing what I'm talking about or not. it's an opinion, a personal preference. While you say people would pay a lot of money for that look, others might not. I'm one of those.

 

I'm afraid your response is the ignorant one, since you assume one size fits all and don't seem to recognize personal opinions.

He has a point. You're the one pushing your opinion onto him by calling him ignorant.

 

I personally don't mind graininess but I like to be the one who breaks it in and creates it. A little on a new jacket is fine though, looks more natural and gives it character.

I got my tracking email just now...but my flight has already landed frown.gif

I can also reiterate that each skin has different character depending on the batch. While my lamb MDR is only grainy on a very small scale, the sleeves on my varsity are verrrry veiny, which I think looks pretty cool!

Yeah my varsity sleeves are really grainy too. Dr and ma-1 aren't at all.

Just been doing a slight bit of research on the TOJ Ma-1.

Who do I even email to get hold of one of these in the smallest size available?(probably..)

They look incredible. I'm in the uk though so I doubt this Drew guy ships them over here??

"how to order" on the site, he ships everywhere.

To be fair, that gives it as the 'unofficial' site, for information. It's not unreasonable for a newcomer to presume there's another, official site that deals with orders.
