Anecdotally, anybody know if a 48 here would fit about the same?

48 is a fairly standard medium

Please excuse my friend's gym clothing.

Got my V1 a few days ago and snapped some quick fit pics to share: http://imgur.com/a/mHaAD. I think it might be too short in the back. I'm 5'6" 140lbs and ordered a 46 with 21" front length. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Pretty much same comments as @masshi:

 

Had my order confirmed 10/09.

Received tracking 10/27.

Picked up the jacket 10/30 from USPS.

 

Jacket came in an EMS box folded nicely with bubble wrap. Some light veininess, but it can't be seen when worn. Much better than the veininess on my TOJ0. Leather felt immediately soft vs TOJ0 taking a few days to break in after conditioning. Feels thinner too. Personally prefer the thicker/heavier leather that my TOJ0 had, but I'm very happy that the veininess on the V1 doesn't show when worn. Hardware feels sturdier too. Mine also has the same bunching in the back that masshi mentioned.

 

Edit: Lining and wool also don't feel as nice as I remember them being. I'm no expert on materials though. Was supposed to be the same stuff -- right? If anyone has a TOJ0 and V1, I think a lot of us would be very interested in a comparison.

 

I may be open to trading/selling for a stock 46, so please let me know if you'd be interested and avoid that MTO fee :)

It looks good.

Got my V1 in this week and the fit is on point but I'm pretty disappointed with the weight of it by comparison to my TOJ0.

The wool is about half as thick and feels more like a heavy cotton twill, and the leather looks about 1mm thinner when folded over. Sleeves feel so fragile and less substantial when comparing the two directly.

Not really sure how to feel right now...

length looks good -- it ends exactly where it's supposed to. i have a stock 46 and i've got 4" on you, so it would look quite oversized.

I try not to post stuff like this online because generally I feel like it's a private matter that I would prefer to handle with the seller but I figured that since others have mentioned it as well, I should voice my own concerns as well.

 

If there's an option for it to be literally exactly the same as what I had before (thicker, fuzzier wool with thicker, more substantial leather), just in a different size, I would not hesitate to order or recommend it again.  I don't see how the price could go up for less material, but then again, Charly and Daniel weren't being compensated at TOJ, so perhaps that's part of where the price discrepancy is...

My jacket arrived quickly and safely. Custom sized black, calf DR1.

The jacket fits great, length is good both in body and arms. The leather looks very good - not veiny, nice grain.

All in all: very happy!

DR2. Lambskin.

post #748 of 2082
The black lamb MA-1 I just got has leather that is approximately as thick as my old MDR.

brian, did you go stock size or MTM?

post #750 of 2082
could you provide some input Dan on why there is apparently such a divide in leather thickness among different buyers?
