For the varsity, what's the best colourway? Navy/blac, navy/grey, black/black?
Grey body/black sleeves or black/black

Lets hope the measurements I ordered are on point given the delay.

Has there ever been a case where someone's orders got lost in the system? I realise that I'm most likely being paranoid and should just keep waiting - MDR 24th July

I'm still waiting on a 21st June BCDR, so keep waiting.
post #37505 of 41359

Haha fair enough, it's because I paid like 3 months before submitting measurements because I was travelling

When did Drew first announce shutdown? Late June? I'm assuming wait times will start to decrease a bit over the next few weeks/months as that initial panic order run gets dealt with.
post #37507 of 41359

I think it was mid-June.  I remember waiting a whole two weeks after the announcement before finally getting my order in (June 30th), and I was worried that I'd be sliding in right before the deadline.  LOL

I had ordered in June and received it in September, but I did have a previous order in and got both at the same time.  

 

Their website shows a lot of boxes getting shipped recently and also 2 weeks ago...boxes usually mean 2 or more jackets, amirite?  

 

.....maybe it pays to order more than 1.  :devil:

or is that just what people who had measurements in between a 44 and 46 refer to their jackets as?

it existed

someone made a cache version of their old site

oh cool

guess mtm's popularity did away with the in-between sizes or something (or maybe they're still available?!)

edit: nvm seems like their old 45 is basically their current 44



oh and btw, thanks to everybody who's been replying to my posts

normally I'd quote and reply individually, but I pretty much only ever use my phone nowadays

I've definitely been reading them and taking the thoughts into consideration

Was about to order a pair of trousers but its even a 6 month wait for them, damn son!

Just got tracking for my ToJ0 black/black, ordered June 3rd!
post #37512 of 41359

Got caught in a downpour twice already wearing my suiting wool ma 1 ... not sure what all the fuzz is about, the thing handles it like a champ so far. I wipe it off with a towel and after that it's usually dry in 2h or so. Maybe effects just don't show immediately?

So what are the "secret" zipper configuration options for the MDR?


I've seen 4-pocket and 2-pocket MDRs in the gallery, and I think I've seen pockets that were flat instead of slanted at 45 degrees?

Are there any other options? Though tbh I think the default 3-zip looks best.

There's 4-zip and 3-zip.

 

edit: Why don't you ask Charly all this?

by "really forgiving" what did you mean?

does it fit loose, or does it still fit slim albeit not uncomfortably so?
