Sorry to derail the speculating, but here is a quick update of the progress of my VTG MDR. We had a couple of 40 degree weather days, and that has contributed to the awesome development to the jacket. It's become a lot softer now and barely makes any noise at all. The sleeve accordions are starting to come in. These are just a couple of quick pics after work.
