    Minimalistic MA1 or similar mid-range options

    Just reviving this thread to update what I ended up with. Found very close to what I was looking for in this at Wested. Figured it was worth the risk/reward as I've heard generally positive things about their stuff. Understanding it's not in the same playing field as Aero or other favorites...

    Minimalistic MA1 or similar mid-range options

    Thanks guys, great discussion. Here's the funny part, I own a ton of jackets...5 of which are in the MA1 variety (different colors, materials, and styles, but nonetheless) since they just work really well with my wardrobe...One of which is a black nylon traditional flight jacket, although...

    Minimalistic MA1 or similar mid-range options

    Hi folks, first post on the forum. I recently bought this black leather bomber from Thursday Boots and while it is relatively nice for a fashion jacket, I found their sizing did not meet my expectations for fit and overall cut, so I returned the jacket. I should note my initial goal with this...
