    Might do that myself in the not-too-distant future. Fit pic?
    Yeah, but the Tokyo airport is a total bitch to get to, IIRC (depending on what part of the city you're coming from).

    Well he could go to either Haneda or Narita, depending on which is closer to his ultimate destination.

    The new international terminal in Haneda is really nice, really no reason to go to Narita for Seoul...

    There's not really that much difference between the two in terms of overall appearance (provided you skip the quilting). The BCDR has a diagonal seam up the front left side, and the MDR has a chest pocket.

    Should I wash my DR or just keep wearing it until I get rained on? Please keep in mind that I am kinda lazy.

    ^ I think it's safe to say that exposing your jacket to a bit of rain wont have the same effect as a hot wash. If you want the washed effect, do it. If not, don't.

    Hey guys,

    I got my A2 in today. I hardly think it even needs to be repeated anymore at this point, but here it is: the quality of this piece is amazing. I think that the suede name patch and the placket flap both are really nice details, and that Drew really got it right with those. The YKK zipper is real thick and smooth, and as cliché as it sounds, the lamb is like butter.

    Here are some quick fit pics that I snapped. Apologies in advance for the subpar photo quality.

    It's a little tight fresh out of the box (especially in the bicep area), but I'm sure that it'll stretch to be comfortable after it breaks in a little. I'm not 100% sure that I nailed the fit down with this piece. I have wide hips, so I think that another 0.5" - 1" in length would've done me some good. I'll be sure to adjust accordingly for my next ToJ purchase. Overall, I'm extremely pleased.

    For reference, I'm 5'8", 165 pounds.

    Thanks, Drew!
