Thanks. Do you know if that's something that eases with wear or does that pretty much just stay the same?

This happens to any bomber/ribbed jacket unless the ribbing is very loose. As someone said above it's not that both collar ends "meet" at the top, it's that when unzipped the ribbing "shrinks" and pulls the sides at the bottom.

I think it looks great.

I got my jacket yesterday, a DR2 in black calf with gunmetal zippers. I just had a quick look but happy so far.

If the ribbing stretches out then it will ease. You could try adjusting the bottom width measurement of the jacket so the ribbing doesn't need to stretch much when you zip it up. That way the ribbing (when contracted) wont pull back the sides as much when unzipped . BUT the "V" might also be due to your body/posture and the balance of the front/back of the jacket... Idk.

No fill coming out yet, but I really haven't worn mine that hard but the creases on the inside of my arm are making way to some holes already....

Calf is not an option in the MA-1 so there goes your answer.

For anyone that own the nylon MA-1, do you guys notice strands of the fill coming out from the inside of your jacket? I've been noticing it a lot recently on my jacket and I don't have any damage on the inside that would've caused that.

What are you doing to your jacket for christ's sake lol

I wear my nylon MA1 almost daily and I toss it around on the ground. No fill coming out to speak of.

Does anyone have a good picture of a goat DR jacket?





FG's goat is amazing! I personally will pick it over lamb or calf anyday; absolutely love the texture. It's tough yet still luxurious.

BTW, my jacket is for sale if anybody is interest lol :embar:

I might've exaggerated a bit but I don't really do anything rough to it. I wear a backpack with it but I don't think that would've cause fill to come out. There are tiny strands sticking out of the lining and I see some strands on my phone when I pull it out of the interior pocket.

This might just be nothing but seeing this just raised some concerns that I hope turns out to be insignificant.
