The fit is in fact very close to how it is in the photo. There's some slouch in the body, so it's not quite as slim-fitting as I'd imagined.

It also has a bit of quilted lining, so it's not quite the warmer weather jacket that I was looking for.

I'm still deciding whether or not I'll keep it.

Overall what are your impression? Decent quality? Worth the price?

I'd say the quality is decent. The zipper could be more hefty / sturdy, but it's not bad at all. If I didn't already have a jacket in a similar weight, I think I'd be more incline to keep it.

 

The cuffs seem well-made, they're quite snug around the wrist, so it keeps the body fairly warm.

 

It's listed in the description but not shown in any of the photos -- the inside lining of the jacket is bright orange, so if you want a jacket that mimics closely the original military styling (like a jacket from Alpha Industries), the Topman might not be a bad choice.

 

I tried on another olive bomber jacket from Zara the other week, and I'd say I like the Topman better because it's better made.

 

 

Here's a photo of the Zara jacket (Zara hires better photographers than Topman, though, I'd say)

doubt that the SoC MA-1 has been posted here (no love for Stevenson on SF?). Quality of these is unreal.









A few more pics can be found in the Stevenson thread.

Alpha recommend going one up from your normal size and that's what worked for me. Be warned, the regular Alpha is more puffy looking than many of the jackets seen in this thread.

I bought this MA-1

http://www.supremenewyork.com/shop/jacket/blood-chit-reversible-ma-1/gold

 

And the sizing is here: http://www.supremenewyork.com/shop/sizing

(it's the blood chit)

 

I'm 6'1 and 175... I bought a large but it fits pretty perfect. you think if I would have gone with XL it would have been too big? The jump in measurements were alot between large and XL but I don't know. You guys think I'm good with L with the measurements? 

post #192 of 248

if you say the large fits perfect, i'm sure it's fine. it's hard to judge when there's no pics lol 

post #193 of 248

I'll post a pic tomorrow. I gotta see if I'm in the right ball park with this MA-1
