    I tried it on when I was in Aloha Rag in NYC last weekend. Thoughts: it fits very slim, TTS medium's should get the L. It's very thin, which was disappointing, no real padding or warmth to it. strictly a spring/summer piece.

    Looks good. I might get one when there's free shipping code. Erm, blue or black?

    I ordered the black Alpha Industries MA-1 this morning. Was thinking about getting the Blood Chit one but this one came out to be slightly cheaper. I kinda wish they offered the Reissue in black but a part of me also thinks I'd regret a slim fitting bomber later on down the road. I'll post fit pics when it comes in.

    Here is the H&M one. Not bad for the price actually, good fit and has a nice volume to it. I modified the placket though as it originally had a straight square edge at the top. Also the zip on the arm office wasn't originally exposed, which I modified too.

    I'm in England so I ordered it from their online store. Didn't see it in any of the local H&M's.
    They're still available online. If anyone stateside wants a jacket proxying then send me a PM, they cost £30 ($45) and whatever it will be for the shipping

    Great post, OP.

    I'm really like these up top, never heard of the brands besides Rick Owens..

    I'm also liking this one from APC:

    Here's a shitty iphone fit pic of the H&M MA-1. I tried it on a few weeks ago at the SF store. From what I remember, I had to size down to a small. I'm normally between sizes for small and medium and small just fit better overall. The material is a bit waxy (maybe plastic feeling is a better way to describe it) and feels really rigid. It gives the jacket the wrinkles and stacking you can see in the pic. Actually gives it a pretty substantial feel too which was nice. I think it was $70-80, which makes it a lot better than the Uniqlo one, but I only wanted to try it and wasn't interested in actually buying one.

    Is the H&M jacket black or navy? It's hard to tell.

    What's the length of the small? Thanks for the photo of the h&m one - looks surprisingly good.

    Thinking of trying the Alpha Industries reissue. Any advice on sizing for a 41" chest, Medium or Large?
