Oh, no! I like your MDR--it's just that it looks so close to black that I feel my dark blue MDR might be redundant with my 2010 DR
Sorry to hear about your ill-fitting jacket Distorbiant. Hope all goes well at the tailor.
would you be able to post your jackets measurements so i can compare with what i've ordered. I've also got a large taper from shoulder to mid, but maybe it's not as severe in terms of the percentage of total width/circumference if you're a lot thinner than me.
Wool MA-1 arrived. High quality materials and heftier/warmer than I thought- lining is awesome. Got a 48 with 46 lengths - shoulders fit right but pit to pit feels tight when zipped (chest pocket gets stretched open a bit).
Debating between re-ordering another at 50 (46 length), or keep and get used to this.
Thanks for replying Ari, sounds like it wears well and you are still enjoying it, which is great because it looks good.
What size is that if you don't mind me asking?
Regarding suppression yes my hips are wider than my waist (although the Johnny bravo reference com another poster was funny as :) ) I think the confusion comes in because the TOJ site says 'waist' when if you think about where the jacket sits for that style I guess they really mean hips - which would make sense with the measurements.
