    It makes no sense to have the waist more tapered than the midsection unless you are built exactly like Johnny Bravo.

    Me too. The waist on my A-2 is about half an inch less than the midsection.

    I'm about 6' and 175 lbs.

    shoulders 17.5"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 21.5"
    midsection 19.5"
    waist 19.0"
    body length, front 23.0"
    body length, back 25.4"
    sleeve length, from shoulder 26.0"
    sleeve width @ pit 7.5"
    sleeve width @ elbow 6.6"
    sleeve width @ cuff 5.6"


    I'm pretty sure I measured everything right. Also pretty sure I don't have a gut (yet).

    That's really different, A-2 is meant to have a loose midsection and a literally elastic waist. MDR is supposed to follow the line of the body much closer.

    Navy Lamb MDR.

    Had it for a while but haven't worn it yet. I just decided to upload some shots of it.

    I have a Blue calf MDR and Black 2010 DR in queue but after seeing Nyarkies navy MDR I feel like changing it to a 2013 DR like Ari...

    Oh decisions decisions....

    Oh, no! I like your MDR--it's just that it looks so close to black that I feel my dark blue MDR might be redundant with my 2010 DR

    Your blue MDR looks really good! He's probably just worried the navy is very similar to black for him so he's changing it to a more stand out color

    I always felt the 2013 dr looks closer to the mdr especially with the zipper configuration.

    Going to meet with the tailor downtown on Thursday to see if he can fix my jacket. Fingers crossed.

    Sorry to hear about your ill-fitting jacket Distorbiant. Hope all goes well at the tailor.
    would you be able to post your jackets measurements so i can compare with what i've ordered. I've also got a large taper from shoulder to mid, but maybe it's not as severe in terms of the percentage of total width/circumference if you're a lot thinner than me.

    Wool MA-1 arrived. High quality materials and heftier/warmer than I thought- lining is awesome. Got a 48 with 46 lengths - shoulders fit right but pit to pit feels tight when zipped (chest pocket gets stretched open a bit).

    Debating between re-ordering another at 50 (46 length), or keep and get used to this.

    If it's too tight you should probably re-order, lest you regret it forever.
