    Pretty sure my MDR arrives today!

    Although I can't really say for sure, Canada Post's tracking is really confusing

    Pretty sure I'll just start as basic as possible- tee, raw denim, black boots. Then I'll work from there. I liked Skitlet's idea with his MDR a page or two back, but I'd work with a different color scheme/cut

    I dig the gunmetal hardware, a little more contrast on the jacket than straight black. My wait time was like 8 weeks

    i find black zippers look a bit...cheap.

    Although i haven't seen them in person, they're probably quite nice.

    Supposedly they're nice. I also got the gunmetal hardware. Wore my jacket out in heavy downpour once during a long walk home from Oktoberfest. Not sure what's going on with the zippers now. Though it doesn't seem to be rust, they're developing a really interesting uneven red/orange color of them...Looks a bit like bloody teeth of a beast. :slayer:

    The blacks are matte anodized, so they don't picture well. They're very cold and metal looking in person though. Not powdercoated, I don't do that. They're full-on torched blacked looking, kind of charred turning to rainbow as they fade.

    i prefer gunmetal zips on the 2010 DR but black zips suit the minimalist design of the MDR really well (since there are less bells and whistles). the black hardware looks much better in person than on pictures imo - the main zipper is coated in a really nice matte finish which looks amazing.

    edit: didn't see drew's post above haha, guess he beat me to it :)
