    Are the actual styles of the jacket changing or just bringing out new colours? Looking forward to getting one but need to gain another 20lb or so before i know my size!

    i also believe charly said that most colors are available for 50 bucks extra. that sounds more than reasonable to me. I'm also saving up for a grey moto

    gotta cop a dr off b&s first though

    Your lucky day; there's two greys in the wings, light and dark. Both have mild tinges of other colors, nice and interesting with some depth to them. Grabbed swatches the other day, I think I'll photoshop solid color swatches rather than bother photo'ing the actual swatches, since photos don't grab the colors all that well.
    Looking forward to seeing them, been holding out for a moto in grey.

    After two months of waiting, cracked pepper fishtail arrived. Size small, slightly lengthened. I'm 6" (182.8 cm) ~140 lbs. (63 kg) for reference.

    The hood is definitely a bit big, but like a knit cap you can just pull it back and have it rest on the top of your head.

    Another note is that the liner folds in on itself if you're not wearing many layers beneath it. In the unzipped photo all I have is a sport shirt underneath so the liner sort of ripples and juts out as you can see on the right in the pic, its not really a problem just something worth noting.

    The fabric is really lightweight but as soon as you put it on it takes just a few seconds to feel how warm and insulated it is. Because its so lightweight its a little difficult to button the collar up because it folds in on itself.

    The liner was also stitched in places with navy threads which isn't a problem at all just something I found worth noting.

    As for the oversized fit, its not an outrageous difference and imo it looks and feels very natural for this type of coat.

    These are just what I thought the possible concerns for people may be, overall its one of the best purchases I've made since Ocarina of Time.

    Looks great on you both, especially SPK though. [​IMG]
    Now, citizens - now that you have seen this bodacious piece, buy mine before I use it for a blanket.

    Fishtail looks fantastic. I love the big hood. And the fur, even though I'm not usually a fur person.
