    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I paid with paypal credit and the process for filing a dispute is different. Paypal credits dispute process is paper based so I just sent all the necessary paper work in.

    a-2 was delivered yesterday morning, but i was in a rush to get to work and then had plans after that, so i wasn't able to try it on until now

    more bathroom selfies below:

    only adjustments i made to charly's suggestions were reducing his suggested body and sleeve lengths by .5" (he suggested 22" and 25" respectively; i changed them to 21.5" and 24.5"). i originally wrote down 21" and 24" for my body measurements, but he bumped them up to account for the ribbing causing the jacket to ride up.

    i was hesitant in going as long as he suggested since they'd be similar to what the model on their site is wearing (who has 5" in height on me; he wears a stock 46 @ 6'1"), so i compromised by only going halfway. i was also kind of skeptical of how much the ribbing would actually cause the jacket to ride up, since i've owned a v1 and i don't remember it riding up at all. i also didn't want my sleeves to stack, either.


    while i'm more than happy with how the front length turned out (hits exactly where i wanted it to; could actually maybe be .25" shorter if i'm being anal), I kinda wish i would've gone longer on the sleeves because they really do ride up (as you can see in the first photo where it looks too short; the ribbing on the a-2 is completely unlike the v1's - it's a lot tighter). though i think it would've taken more than charly's original suggestion of 25" to actually make a noticeable difference. it's not that big a deal, though, since they're easily adjustable by just slightly pulling them down. the body (in the front, anyway) does not ride up at all in my brief experience.



    i'll do a more thorough "review" of sorts for both jackets when i have the time (and yes, i'll get belted pics for that one dude who asked for them)


    p.s. don't know why anybody wears the jacket without the shearling

    it looks so boring without it imo, though i guess the vibe it gives off is different without

    Length is good. Sleeves still too short; you should have gone with Charly's suggestion.

    actually, after having tried it on again after i made that post, i realized that the sleeves, due to the tight ribbing, won't actually dip below where they are in those pics (at rest, anyway)

    it's why you see some slight stacking


    you'd have to pull it down to make it hit past where the hand begins to widen, but even then it'd start to ride back up, anyway, once you started walking and moving about naturally

    they're not as short as i'm making them out to be in that post

    i don't even have to pull them down, actually, barring some motion that causes the sleeves to come up (like raising my arm
    to scratch my head or something)

    So the lesson in all this is basically: listen to Charly.

    Suiting Wool MA1

    Shown in medium gray. Comes out way darker in photos than it actually is. Please refer to the swatches.

    Ash is an extremely dark gray. I looks black in most situations. In bright sunlight, it will look very, very, very dark gray.

    Not to nitpick - ok, who am I kidding; I'm totally nitpicking - but isn't that more of a T-3 than a T-1?

    New stuff looks great, though.

    Oh, it's just the coding we use to keep track of our products :)

    So once there's a third iteration of the trucker, we'll call it the T3. Sorry for the confusion.

    That's literally* the most confusing thing I've ever heard.




    *Except not actually literally.

    Hmmm it's like a hybrid of the old truckers? Was hoping for something more like a 101, but still nice.

    How will the gas mask flap look on the nylon MA-1? Any picture of it from the front, unzipped to show the placket? Looking forward to higher quality pictures on the website

    Prolly the same as the gas mask pocket on the suiting wool. I might have to get the suiting wool again, immediately regretted my decision to sell it.
