    Thanks again. I was also considering some of the lighter colors ( herringbone/ cracked pepper/ greys) but the Navy seems to be winning as it will presumably be less of an effort to keep it clean (or harder for spots/ marks to show anyway).

    I was going to order the brown goat A2 and changed my mind back to lamb right as I pulled the trigger. The contrast of the collar was throwing me off. Having a hard time envisioning the goat bomber.

    god damn, so I think I may bite before cut-offs


    2010 DR, black calf

    or

    black goat CWU?



    leaning towards DR as I already have a brown A-2, would wear with thin gray hoodie underneath...


    red DR would be sweet, but I think that's a luxury i cant justify right now

    I think Drew suggested lamb, rather than goat, for CWU. Could deginitely see you in a black CWU. I know you ride but I think the CWU fits the rest of your look better.

    i think you're right. im tempted to go with a stock 52 or 54 DR, maybe just a few tweaks. my A-2 was a little on the big side, so I hope this one is purrrrfect

    I've tried lookin for DRs at vintage shops etc for a while now and I can NEVER get anything that fits well in all areas, theyre usually too cropped if they fit good in the shoulders and arms.

    why go with a stock size? Just measure and get it sized perfectly.

    Anyone have pictures of a real (not photoshop mockup) 4zip MDR?

    Also, what zippers with medium gray--gunmetal or silver?

    :confused:

    So you don't think any DRs work on bigger dudes, or just the quilted one with horizontal pockets?

    'bigger' was meant to refer to build and not height, being on the heavier or wider side of slim. DR's just tend to be that way. If you're built and not slim, single-breasted jackets like Motos tend to serve better. The reason is as explained; DR's have the extra material showing when opened; that expanse gets perceived visually as more width than is actually there. It's a tougher look to master. nineohtoo actually traded a CWU for a DR and posted a pic recently where he demonstrated a great open DR fit. Getting the lower quarters to open a bit is a good look.

    If this has been covered, sorry for asking again, the thread is just really long and I might have missed it in skimming.

    Do you guys have any idea of what styles of jackets will "survive" the reboot? Are the classic or bestsellers (moto, MDR and DR, bomber, TOJ 1) probably going to return in some form? Is it a really big change, or is it mostly just removing MTM jackets and making pretty similar styles?

    Asking because I love your jackets and have wanted a few for some time, but there's no way I'm going to be able to get the cash together before the cutoff date for what I want. Either way I can't wait to see what you guys come up with after the hiatus, the jackets are always so killer :slayer:
