    I've been thinking about ordering the peacoat for some time now. Only thing is, I can't decide on a color. Most of my footwear is brown: AE Bayfield boot in brown, AE Malvern chukka in brown, AE Delray blucher in brown, Wolverive 1000 Mile in rust, Clarks Desert Boots in beeswax. Otherwise it's just white sneakers, and I may pick up some black 1000 Miles to wear with my CWU.

    Should I default to cracked pepper/brown trim, or could I go with navy/black or dark gray/black? What makes cracked pepper different from a shade of gray or heather gray?

    Doing all kinds of hemming and hawing over here.

    I've decided I want to have a 4-zip moto in black goat with gunmetal zips in my life. Do I:

    (A) Go for the 2011 model even though I already have a BCDR and CM in the 2011 make-up?

    (B) Hold out to see if there's a new model introduced, knowing that there's no guarantee that black goat, gunmetal zips, or even MTM will be available at that point?

    Ah, indecision. The only constant in my life. :confused:

    buy now think later, can always buy a new model down the road but it seems rare to regret a toj purchase even if new styles come out

    I have this exact combo and love it. I don't think you'll regret it if you buy it now. Also seeing how the preference seems to be on the one-way silver zip, if the gunmetal is important to you, that may be something to consider. Final thought would be if you even need MTM.. as the consensus seems to be that most people don't actually require full MTM, just adjustable lengths to get a good fit

    Melton wool MA-1 would be excellent.

    Wool A-2 was awesome too actually. I could see myself getting one for winter and sizing it a little more generously than my leather one for layering.

    Are all jacket models on the same wait list?

    Good, good, this kind of enabling is helping. :laugh:

    You're right, though, MTM doesn't really matter if stock sizes can still be lengthened after it goes away.

    I don't know... that's going to be a problem for me. I have a pretty small waist and chest. The stock sizes are too big/blousy. I need that aggressive taper.

    Such a tease knowing that the BCDR won't be added to the available product list until the price increase. All the want to buy a piece while it's still at regular price without the ability to cop dat grail item.

    Thought the hemline of it and side which the zipper is on made it part of the men's line, better wait for someone who knows better then.

    edit: Someone who knows better arrived before with the best advice. Also willy=/=charly
