    Nope. Different jackets. Hence, not redundant.

    ;)

    That's me in the first pic. FYI, that was really really tight on my shoulders; I could barely reach for things. I had to get rid of it. I don't have any tips on how to get that look without it being way too tight, although when I have time I can post my black lamb DR that I think looks as good and isn't constricting at all. I'm 5'8, 165 for reference.

    Yeah, if you could post some pics that would be awesome.

    If the original had been lamb and just a tad more relaxed on the shoulders, would you have kept it?

    And that's me in the 2nd pic. I don't know who you are, I don't know what you want. If you are looking for better fit pics from me, I can tell you I don't have them. But what I do have are a very particular set of fits; fits I have acquired over a very long period of wearing clothes. Fits that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my somewhat "blousy" fit go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you and I will kill you.
    Not really me in that pic :foo:

    Hey guys, so I got my Toj1 and med. whiskey calf MDR!

    They arrived Wednesday after I got tracking on 22/2/13, very fast (UK resident).

    I'll post some fit pics up soon but I've got a couple of queries on the MDR;

    the calf is crazy stiff, people aren't kidding! My concern is that I'm finding the arms quite tight around my forearm when bending at the elbow, so much so that I seem to be developing bruising after a few minutes of wear. The other thing is the armholes seem quite high and are pushing into my armpit quite a bit. The chest and body fit close but still comfortable.

    I was wondering whether these tight areas are normal and what I can do to quicken the breaking in process so it's more comfortable to wear?

    that seems a bit difficult because it's not an available item?

    Yeah for sure. If it had been lamb I probably would've kept it period. I don't really see the appeal of calf over lamb unless you're actually on a motorcycle, but that's just me.

    The MA-1 in black lamb is available -- go back, like, two pages and check out fit pics of people who are just receiving their own.

    Discontinued in January, but some new jackets will probably drop this summer. Check the john coppidge tumblr for some preview pics of a new one.

    The pic with me folding my arms pulls the jacket quite tight around my back, again, will this ease off with some stretching or have I just sized it too small?

    Anyone have the
    TOJ Suiting Wool MA-1
    ?

    I saw some decent reviews of the discontinued MA-! but not the suiting wool one.

    Thoughts?
    Deciding on whether to save up for the A-2 Bomber or just get the suiting wool ma-1.
