    Well Distorbiant, I was looking mainly at the 2013 DR's and those photos are all very recent.

    The guy with the Oxblood I felt like the sleeves are too short and too narrow. That's just my opinion though.

    I have 6.4" elbows and 5.0" cuff btw

    I just want to point out that cuffs are zippered for a reason. The function of the zipper to allow the cuff to expand.

    not toj related but I love how potsnu actually posted his face instead of doing that dumb obscured/blurred face bullshit


    I don't think people realize how much your face actually lends itself to a look

    Thanks. I'm actually really tired in a lot of those photos. Working 10 hours in the office + gym and just slapping on the jacket to get you guys some fit pics.

    Yea I think it's all preference. When I look at this photo, I feel like it's a tad too short. I drive a lot and it irritates me when the sleeves rides up too much when you're sitting with your arm in a perpendicular position. It's especially uncomfortable when you're wearing a dress shirt underneath as well.

    Yes I understand and on the BCDR you actually have two snap enclosures so you can widen it that way as well.

    Some people think they should opt for a more narrow opening and have the option to unzip for a wider opening. I can see that.

    However, if you rely on unzipping to widen the cuff you're going to have a very prounounced "bell bottom" opening.

    looks good Potsnu, i like that shade of grey a lot better than the lighter version. once the newness settles out i think the jacket will fit spot-on.

    lmao.


    also, (@potsnu it blows my mind how much better that fits after breaking in. that will probably reassure me a lot after I get mine if it's not how I want it. thanks for posting that.

    2x-also. today is 30 weeks for me.

    MTM != bespoke.
    Box fresh pics (while exciting) rarely do the jackets justice.

    Yeah, that sleeve fit is perfect. Hope mine comes out like that.

    @Potsnu -valid points, man. I totally get why you were hesitant to post box fresh pics now after seeing the MDR before and after breaking in that you posted. That jacket looks fucking great, man. I assume the suede BCDR will break in similarly. Fuck the haters.

    Also, for what it's worth, I have 5" cuffs on both my jackets and it is perfect IMO -just enough room for a watch when zipped up, but very snug. I usually unzip my cuffs about halfway though, but I don't really notice a 'bell' effect. I wouldn't want to go any smaller than 5" -especially when you have to accommodate the leather tab on the inside of the convertible cuffs and a watch into the picture. That might just be me.
