    my revised dr3 came in today and i can tell you that, yes, it is indeed more matte than the lamb (which is the opposite of how it was with toj if i'm not mistaken)

    i'm really relieved about it actually, cause i wasn't looking forward to having a "shiny" jacket

    i'll also say that the calf is kind of underwhelming compared to the lamb. it just doesn't feel as "luxe" as the lamb did, and i wasn't in as much awe putting this jacket on as i was with the lamb one i sent back (though this can be attributed to the latter having been my first time wearing a mtm item and me experiencing a lot of anticipation leading up to trying it on). having handled both now, though, i'd still pick calf just cause of its sturdier feel (which i feel better suits the "character" of this type of jacket; the lamb was really nice, though).



    dirty mirror bathroom selfie:

    i'll take some more pictures with just a t-shirt that more accurately show the lengths/amount of crop later

    i only added an inch to the body, so it's still decently cropped, but it's not as extreme as the old jacket

    -

    and on a side note, to anybody else who has a dr3 - does your guys' dr3's have slightly uneven collars as well? when buttoned down, the right side of my collar overlaps the epaulet more than it does on the left. it kind of bothers me, but i don't remember whether that was the case or not with my old lamb dr3 as well. i hope that what i'm talking about makes sense at all (you can kinda see what i'm talking about in the picture i posted, though, due to the mirror reversing things, it looks like it's the left side of the collar that overlaps the epaulet more than the right).

    i also feel like the sleeves got shorter by a quarter of an inch or something, which i know seems pedantic/anal/etc., but it doesn't sit where my lamb one's sleeves did (which were perfect imo) - i'm guessing that this can be attributed to the difference in leathers? or maybe i'm just misremembering how "perfectly" the lamb one fit, idk.

    I'd submit a pic but to be honest I'm not planning to buy a new jacket until at least autumn.

    Almost afraid to ask how many "just a bit off" jackets you've accumulated over the years

    got my DR4 in the mail today, perfectly timed for the fit pic contest.

    jc4p / lambskin DR4 / dark wine


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    MTM based off the measurements of my V2 varsity, which Charly adjusted magically. I was considering getting it in oxblood calfskin, I'm really glad I got lambskin, it feels incredible. Ordered 3/8, shipped 3/18, at US customs 3/20, then a couple days of lag due to a snowstorm here.

    A couple more pics:
