    I'm sure if you asked John Copper nicely he would give you measurements.

    Was just about to ask where it was, didn't spot it. As long as it wasn't a stock 48 it's fine.

    Can you post a fit pic?

    I'm tempted to get a moto now from that pic.

    The exposed pocket zippers is a great feature of the moto, mdr, qdr, and dr 2010.

    I remember Drew posting if you wanted to mold the lapels in either that original BCDR or moto he recommended just dipping the lapel section in water or do it slowly over time with oil. I know I just molded my moto with just leather oil and over time they just stayed. It still zips up fine with no issues. Also this is available if someone was looking for it. This is a great deal on an awesome jacket and well sized from what I remember? http://www.styleforum.net/t/428046/toj-mdr-calf-suede-sherwood-green#post_7412392

    Are those zippers gunmetal or silver? And what exactly is the visual difference between excellas and standard? I ordered gunmetal excellas so I am curious.

    I didn't know TOJ offered gunmetal excella zips. You might want to double check with Charly on that...

    Basically they're individually polished and plated and are less chunky.

    I was comparing riri zippers to the silver YKK on one of my TOJ jackets, and honestly the level of polish on riri makes the silver YKK look like gunmetal in comparison.

    I asked for Excella but was told it can only be used with black leather. Not sure why--an aesthetic decision?

    Maybe it has something to do with dyeing the zipper tape?

    Who knows. I didn't especially care about the zippers so I wasn't too fussed over it. I'm happy to see *some* word going out about MDRs, though, even though they have not shipped yet. Really get the feeling MDRs are not the majority of orders, which might mean they'll move through the queue quicker than some other makeups. Looks like I've about another 4-6 months to go (Dec. '13).

    Ah I guess charly assumed I was aware of that and I'm ending up with silver then. I was really on the fence anyway between silver and gunmetal.

    Anyone receive an email reply in the last two days from TOJ? I emailed for a status update from an order on Aug 2013 but haven't heard back. Just worried about it being lost since I'm changing address soon.

    For anyone with both a DR/Moto and a A2/CWU/MA-1, how do the front, back, and sleeve lengths differ between the two? And do the lengths for the A2/cwu/ma-1 include the elastic cuffs? Would love some info on this, thanks!
