    I don't know the proper terminology. You're right. The insides of the jacket is not black, but orange.

    What I meant by the quilted lining is that it's there's this diamond shape stitching, and when you squeeze it, there's stuff / insulation in between the outside and inside of the jacket.

    Gotta say folks, if you can shell out the dough and deal with the wait, the toj suiting wool ma-1 is one of the best jackets I have and warmest, totally worth it

    So it is - thanks man. Impossible to find of course but I'll keep an eye out. Plus i just gave up on finding it and ordered one from Our Legacy at 40% from Menlook. Colour is 'steel shine' which looks a bit too silvery in some pics but I hope it will be more olive grey as described by someone on here. Colour seems to vary from this:

    I am anticipating a return.

    I picked up an APC Croft MA-1 on sale and need to sell to free up cash. Similar to Rick MA-1. PM if interested.

    how should a ma-1 jacket normally fit? my chest is 34" and I'm not sure if this 41" chested bomber fits me well or slightly too big. I wear 38-39" shirt/sweater fyi.

    Ma-1s aren't flattering to the body or anything so just wear whatever is comfortable

    because it's 'trench-coat-like', hence 'goth'

    Looking up fit pics online, I was surprised to find other brands that do an elongated bomber:

    What's surprising is that it's such an extreme design for there to be multiple brands doing their own.

    Color != goth, it's the trench drapy aspect of the jacket
