    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.

    Overall what are your impression? Decent quality? Worth the price?

    I'd say the quality is decent. The zipper could be more hefty / sturdy, but it's not bad at all. If I didn't already have a jacket in a similar weight, I think I'd be more incline to keep it.

    The cuffs seem well-made, they're quite snug around the wrist, so it keeps the body fairly warm.

    It's listed in the description but not shown in any of the photos -- the inside lining of the jacket is bright orange, so if you want a jacket that mimics closely the original military styling (like a jacket from Alpha Industries), the Topman might not be a bad choice.

    I tried on another olive bomber jacket from Zara the other week, and I'd say I like the Topman better because it's better made.

    Here's a photo of the Zara jacket (Zara hires better photographers than Topman, though, I'd say)

    doubt that the SoC MA-1 has been posted here (no love for Stevenson on SF?). Quality of these is unreal.

    Alpha recommend going one up from your normal size and that's what worked for me. Be warned, the regular Alpha is more puffy looking than many of the jackets seen in this thread.
