    For anyone who has owned the nylon MA-1, how would you suggest keeping the cuffs from stretching out or how to go about shrinking the cuff width? I like having a tight fit on the cuffs and they're loosening up quicker than I'd like them to.

    The chesterfield is the same as the TOJ chesterfield, so if you google that, you should run into some pictures.

    Falcon Chesterfield pics. Cracked Pepper. Color is closest to first picture...a slight brown hue. Very happy with the coat.

    Wool MA-1 available in the variety of wools for the chesterfield? More specifically the olive or cracked pepper or would that material not work?

    The MA1 could be be made with wool from the coats but the material wouldn't lend itself well to the design imo.

    I wore my lambskin A2 out today and it started pouring outside unexpectedly. Is there anything particular I should do to properly care for the jacket?

    any chance of an olive suiting wool that would work?

    I like to let the elements do their thing to leather.

    But if you're particular about your leather, then you might want to use some conditioner and/or water repellent on it.


    Olive suiting wool isn't a very common color, so right now, chances are looking slim.

    Is white/cream/natural colored shearling/fur an option for the A2 collar?

    Damn thanks for the quick reply.

    @mrchariybrown is this possible if enough people are interested?

    If you get at least 5 people together that want to order an A2 with a different color fur (only one color) fur, I'll see can be done.

    I didn't know about this thread or brand, awesome. Good to know these jackets arent gone forever.

    Charley, have you guys ever done any jackets with shearling? Or any plans to?

    We've never done any jackets with shearling. No plans to at the moment.

    If anyone else has fit pics of the new chesterfield please share!

    Charly, is the weight of the wool about the same as previous model? I have a TOJ peacoat and am trying to gauge the warmth.
