    Considering buying a secondhand black lamb MDR in size 50, but am a bit worried about the sizing as I usually wear a large or 42" chest.
    I am planning to wear it open most of the time so if it's too tight when closed that's not such a big deal.
    Just wondering if it might be able to stretch out with some wear?

    my black lamb MDR, which i've worn about 20 times is far "roomier" than my quilted moto which has only been worn about 3 times. especially in the pit, so i'd say it stretches out some, and didn't seem to take too long either.

    just realized rxs and rfx aren't the same screenname and thus aren't the same person.

    How much does TOJ's brown lambskin stretch? I'm scared that my MDR will be too snug and I was wondering if it will stretch over the months.

    Edit: Just saw some comments regarding stretch above me. Further comments are still welcomed!

    Wouldn't really say it "stretches" under normal circumstances...more like it gives more as it breaks in.

    Only place I ever really notice stretching is the elbows

    Same with mine. I've worn my MDR about 10-12 times and the elbows are the only place that i've noticed stretching.

    Hello everyone, im looking to buy an mdr. Had a couple of questions though, is every measurement taken into account and the jacket made exactly for me or is there stuff that can not be altered like shoulder width etc. Reason im asking this is because i have quite an unusual build and recently got into weightlifting semi seriously and im worried that my body might get bigger through the course of a year.

    I remember reading that the silk waffle knit fabric wasn't thick enough to be used in the TOJ0, but can we expect other products in the near future that make use of it? Or is it too thin to be used on anything TOJ would want to make?

    Got my mid-whisky suede MDR today. Fit is great, and quality is great too. Weight is like my Alpinestart jacket, but much thicker and softer leather. That is some impressive quality and craftsmanship.

    On the other hand, it requires stupid self-esteem, it´s the kind of jacket you have to wear like Tom Cruise did in the 80s, or you´re going to look like you borrowed your grandmothers jacket. Any good ideas what to wear it with? Dark jeans, and blues in general i think is OK, and maybe black jeans, anything else? I think khaki and sand look odd with it.

    You're not just going to leave us here with no pictures, are you?

    Sixteen weeks to craft. Fifty-six hours from Korea to suburban Philadelphia. Really exquisite work.

    Anyway, just to start some shit: the scale of the herringbone in mine is larger/more pronounced (I'm gonna say double the size) than in the sample/first batch. I don't care but I'm sure that some of the "obsess-over-a-fraction-of-an-inch-on-my-measurements" crew might.

    Better pics in the next few days.

    Nice combo. I'd recommend either heavily faded slim jeans or dark blue slim jeans (not black plz), a nice pair of dark brown combat boots or side zips and either a plain white tee or slim button down shirt. That'd be playing it safe, and probs how i'd wear it at first
