If you've posted a fit pic, I know what jacket you ordered... if you don't, then I usually don't (in rare cases I do, if it's a piece I go out of my way for, or it's unique)

Got caught in some rain with my A1, anybody got some good tips about how to remove rain stains from suede?

The most recent Men's Ex is a guide on caring for clothes, I can look that up. Let the jacket dry naturally for sure, but maybe take a dry towel to it and get the excess moisture out.

I let it dry naturally. Probably should have tried to dry it with a towel, but was running late to a thing so completely forgot about it. Thinking about trying to use my suede eraser tomorrow. Would appreciate it if you can see if Men's ex say anything about it.

p.s. I realize what I said about work and finding the road of enlightenment was just an arrogant motherfuckerism, courtesy of me. I had some rough times and I think it took me a few scrapes on the bottom, plus some life limbo to step back and re-prioritize what I could do with my time on earth. 4 years ago, exactly this time of year, I was homeless, jobless - long story. Certainly better off right now, wouldn't have imagined it back then either. My head was screwed on so tight I wasn't letting my soul breathe properly. foo.gif

Men's Ex didn't have anything on it after all. Doing some research on the internets though, it says you're best to take it to a dry cleaners and let them take care of it professionally, rather than risk it yourself. Suede is delicate.

Ok, will have to find a good leather cleaner then.

Perhaps this is a very different case, but I had some nice suede gloves that got soaked in the rain and looked like crap. I used a suede eraser and suede brush and they came out looking great, which surprised me a bit. In my case though I cleaned the whole glove, so if you are spot cleaning I'd be a tad wary as the erase-and-brush system could make it look a bit different. From experience with incompetent dry cleaners, I'd ask them what they intend to do before handing it over.

Decided to try my suede eraser on a spot and it actually seemed to work fine. Will do the whole jacket tomorrow,

How does the fit of the A2 Bomber compare to the Winter Varsity? I know the WV has raglan sleeves, but how else does it compare? I made a couple of mistakes when measuring/sizing the WV for the body length (too short) and pit-to-pit (too much room) and I'm looking to order a bomber ASAP

Drew, any plans to do an occasional open house (maybe even to clear out samples by direct sales) or have scheduled drop-by's once you've set up in Tokyo? If I remember, your were going setting up in Akasaka which is right near my office. TOJ Lunchbreak icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif . Also, props for living the dream, seriously.

When are you planning to move to Tokyo? I might be doing a 10 week exchange program in Seoul next year.

Placed my order just in time to get the MA-1 before it was discontinued.

Jacket is perfect!

Thanks again TOJ for helping me out with the sizing.

Contemplating on what to purchase next!
