    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.

    Neither Norwegian welt nor fake. That is a stitchdown construction. Hardly used anywhere anymore - Viberg is one of the few companies that still do it. They are experimenting with a Goodyear welt, since that is just faster, but for now, all the MTO (which means all the Styleforummarket boots) are stitchdown construction.

    The guy had an XL too...total was $275 shipped from UK originally priced at £700+ he said at his store. 20 shoulders 24 p2p if your interested I could see if he could set up a listing. It's primaloft insulated, really looked nice I can't wait til it comes in.

    ^^def take pics when you get it. haven't pulled the trigger on an MA1 at this point despite liking a couple mostly because I can't see myself wearing them with any frequency

    W+H construction is top notch. I'd go for the XL but I'd be worried it'd be too warm for where I live. Had a wool field jacket that was awesome but only got worn like twice a year.

    A lot of people had strong feelings against that MA-1 when the lookbook first came out. Dunno, I guess it looks nicer in person?

    Also - returned the Lavenham jacket. I'm in between sizes I think (unless I want to layer it with a substantial knit under, but that wasn't what I had in mind). Construction and quality was fine - it's not very puffy at all (neither good nor bad, just expectation related).

    was looking for a "boring" shirt i can wear untucked
    after the few disappointments with COS etc. i ordered a mmm one, from a recent season (made in romania)
    quality is alright though, paid 100euros at yoox
    i took size 48 (regular fit), i usually wear size 50 slim-fit, fit is spot on

    Carpincho shoes from Argentina. Kinda look like bowling shoes. I think they are bad ass and nobody has a pair.

    That w+h MA1 is incredible sadly I think an XL will be too big el Bert. It is one of the warmest jacket I own, is 30 degrees and I'm comfortable wearing it with a t outside.

    you guys wear those oversized or something? I'm a L in all my w+h stuff and wear a 44 jacket, XL looks like it'd be too big on me

    Nah I just didn't want it look like a slim bomber because it is insulated I wanted a more relaxed fit. You have to take into account the thickness as well imo.
