The leather one looks much better. Maybe its because you tuck your shirt in but the MA-1 looks too long on you.

My new Schott. Would love dual zips but very happy with it. The navy leather is really versatile.

How did you Sz the jacket. Is  it a slim fit or did you have to Sz down?

Feels like a slim. Went tts in a medium. I am a 40R in all tailored clothing. 5ft10in and 175. Have a bit of a gut, lift weights, and have large thighs (those are 3sixteen straight legs)

@notwithit EDIT: I am pretty sure it's cowhide. Don't have a lot of experience w/ leather jackets but I know it's not lambskin. Leather is identical to this schott in terms of color and grain: https://www.schottnyc.com/products/naked-cowhide-g-1-leather-flight.htm?color=100&catID=8

Is Alpha in Sage Green not an easy color to pull off without looking like a try hard?

Hmm I'm 5'8" 195lb and  have a baby gut as well. You think a large would work on me. I just got really broad shoulders for my height and a wide ass neck lol. 

 

I got that stocky build and wondering if any of those bros on here got any fit pics of any MA-1s

I'm not sure what "sage green" is, but if it's the color typically seen on their MA-1's, I don't think it'd be terribly difficult to pull off.

I'm looking to buy a cheap bomber (or a bomber style blouson) since I recently spent money on a higher quality chestercoat.

 

what do you guys think?

 

オリジナルス ボンバージャケット[SST BOMBER JACKET]

roughly $120, 100% Nylon exterior (not sure interior, probably polyester lining)

 

 

Image 3 of BOMBER JACKET WITH QUILTED LINING from Zara

Burgundy Zara $60 100% polyester exterior and lining

 

 

Image 1 of LONG BOMBER JACKET from Zara

 

Zara long bomber, about $120 100% polyester exterior and lining

 

 

Image 1 of CAMEL TONE WOOL JACKET from Zara

Camel jacket, about 50 50 wool/polyester $90

 

 

or none. (a part of me is wondering if I really need one since I've a quilted jacket, a wool peacoat, a wool/cashmere chester coat, and a down parka)

i love the bomber jacket/blouson trend as well as the stand/band/no collar shirts.

But I've always associated it with casual.

 

Can anyone recommend some styles of bomber jackets that are more business casual (if it exists?)

post #339 of 370
think the closest you're going to get would be the arc'teryx veilance nemis.




there's also the arc'teryx veilance geom which I have and love but that is no longer on sale although this rarely happens it has popped up on ebay.

Maybe a TOJ suiting wool bomber or the APC oregon jacket?

I own/owned both.

Toj suiting wool is very classic and round, the APC jacket is much slimmer, i prefer it to the wool.

I see posts by you all the time in the RO thread. What are your thoughts on the RO bomber?

Also a was dissapointed with the quality of the zipper. Preveusly a had a mil-tec ma-1 and the quality was waaay better, but the sizing and fitting of mil-tec bombers is for short and bulky people only. Second part of the dissapointment was that the american brand jacket is made in china and the sizing is more appropriate for chinese folk. Mil-tec is still made in USA as the corcoran boots, maybe thats why the quality is much better.

 

These jackets are meant to be short in the body. The body and sleeve length looks about right on you. However you may want to try the slim version. I'm tall and slim and the puffy look of the regular version of this jacket doesn't look good on me. The puffy look is part of the style of this jacket but if your frame doesn't match it isn't flattering.

 

As an aside, the Alpha tall sizes are bullshit for actual tall people. The sleeves are only 1/2 inch longer than regular, and the body only 3/4 inch longer, hardly making it much "taller".

 

I had success with the "Reissued" version of this jacket, now discontinued. I have been wondering if the current "Slim" version is the same. The Reissued was longer and fit me perfectly (6'4", size XL) even though it wasn't in a tall size. I posted about it upthread.
