    MDR / DR in FQHH sounds like a disaster. It's better suited for lamb.

    I would say maybe the A-2 or the CM is okay.

    Seems like you're on two ends of the aggressiveness spectrum with the CM compared to the MDR and especially the 2010 DR. The 2 or 4 zip moto would split the difference and probably look great. From your choices I would go 4 zip MDR though, should look cool. Don't do the collared moto, it really never looks good.

    totally fucked up with my waist measurements ( I measured my widest hip point). Too late to change now.

    So I have the same measurement for my A2's midsection and waist (20.00'' for both - my waist actually measures 34.5'' and waist 37'' - I told Charly 38.75'' for waist !), which seems weird when I see all A2's waist measurement always being 1.5'' or so slimmer than midsection. Anyone has the same measurements for midsection and waist ? I am looking for a relaxed fit anyway, so I hope it will be good.

    Nonsense. It's just fine in FQHH, absolutely no problem as far as design goes. Still, I don't recommend it unless you want what is essentially an armor jacket. I've got a FQHH DR and it's very thick and somewhat rigid even after a year. But it does look great and have gotten plenty of positive comments on it even from random strangers.

    I don't think a DR in FQHH would be a disaster. Take a look at eternaldrakes. It's by far my favorite TOJ.

    No FQHH for the A-2...

    Charly reccommended the olive green calf for a DR with silver hardware. Sounds awesome, but I'm not sure I have the balls for it.


    Mid brown or russet FQHH?
    Do you have any pictures of the jacket broken in?

    I think the old size chart had a midsection 1.5 inches bigger than the waist, and the new size chart has a midsection .5 inches smaller than the waist. This suggests that they've changed where they are measuring. Maybe it used to be at the bottom of the jacket, and now it's right above the ribbing.

    My waist is 33" and hip is 34.5"
    My A2 is 20" at Mid and 18.5" at waist.
    I believe it is too tight on the waist for zip up.
    I think you should be fine with that waist. It might be on the fitted side than relaxed.

    4 zip man, 2 zip can look like a wetsuit, especially on bigger sizes. Need that extra visual kei. I will try to post pics of mine when I get the chance.

    Is that over your hip bones? Seems awfully wide.

    hmmm i took a look at the toj site

    midsection - 31
    waist (over hip bone) - 34
    hip (at widest point, over butt) - 37.5


    i think it looks really awkward tho when the jacket is fitted to the waist, but the guy's legs and butt spills out aftewards kinda creating a

    Yeah, don't go over your butt. Jackets don't go down that low. The hip bone is the place you're supposed to measure. Look at the website to see the exact spot.

    Just saying, FQHH is very rigid (prior to break in), thick and heavy. You described it well, it's essentially armor with a utilitarian purpose. You see its application the most with A-2s (history) and Collared Motos.

    DR, imo, just pairs better with lamb, fashion wise. Though this looks amazing:

    Raindrop, that's my jacket. :)

    Another thing is that you really have to wear it a lot to keep it comfortable. I hadn't used mine all winter and when it got warm enough to wear it, it felt almost as stiff as when I first got it. After a day it got better and now is pretty comfy.


    Burgundy russet. Sorry, no pics (there are some in the gallery when it was almost new). All that has happened is that the edges have lost some color as they've gotten scratched. Shows up as lighter colored areas. Overall it has gotten more texture to it at the back and sleeves, kind of reminds of waves in sand.

    Does anyone know what I could use to restore color to some spots? One shoulder has gotten pretty scratched from a bag's strap and could look a bit better.

    Love the shit out of my bomber. Gonna have to shelve it until fall but I'm fine with that. Fits like a dream.

    Anyone know what animal this fur collar came from? It's really nice
