Intriguing to read that some jackets are going into Nov./Dec. order dates. May the MDRs be amongst them...
Green lamb Harrington sounds intriguing. Was there ever a makeup like that/do you have any idea what it looks/might look like?
^ That's actually pretty relieving to learn, for those of us who didn't know what to make of the reports of leather thickness variations.
After having read a fair bit on Kamakura here and elsewhere, I stopped by today along with my wife. It's an interesting story of how the Madison Ave. store first won me over and then lost me as a customer.   I had a wonderful experience from the moment I stepped in. I was attended to carefully by a female sales associate (I didn't catch her name), who took my measurements, understood what I wanted in terms of fit, and helped me get two oxford button-downs in the colors I...
If that implies (as it does) that this sort of total silence regarding why, after explicitly promising that daypacks and wallets would not be delayed, they are nonetheless delayed by more than twice as long as scheduled, was something that was "planned," then that's even worse. You're effectively saying that it was known that daypacks could not be sent out on schedule, yet we were given a schedule and promises anyway. You're also effectively saying that it was planned that...
    Two things I note: 1. This is the "official TOJ thread," not the "official TOJ Public Relations thread." Therefore, we who are interested in TOJ or are customers (past/present/would-be) are entitled to voice our thoughts on anything relating to TOJ. 2. You've consistently defended TOJ by implication, arguing that the frequent complaints are not going to change anything. The point is exactly that: the lack of any change is exactly the problem that is becoming worse over...
Pfsh, Dec. 13 of course--I'm silly this morning.    Found this thread with colors--sure you meant steel blue? The page shows steel *grey* and diesel blue.    http://www.styleforum.net/t/217855/the-new-official-toj-thread-2011/28800
 Dear lord. What was this, a massive splurge before they putatively closed down? But, sympathies; I'd be antsy too if I had that much at stake and nary an update. Just looked in after a while--it doesn't seem like I should think about getting my MDR by the end of 2015 (I'd ordered mid-late December '14). Was kind of hoping for it to arrive before the New England winter ends...maybe early spring, then. 
Really sucks when one has to explain things to children. Here's a helpful breakdown.   1. A lot of comments in this thread: accuse TOJ of various misdeeds without real evidence.   2. My comment: points out something that not just TOJ but any company that is winding down its operations must do--that is, finish up stock on hand after, at a certain point, ceasing to acquire new stock (because company is winding down operations). In light of that, I express the hope that...
Yes, a year, as opposed to several years of upcoming leather manufacturing. I obviously don't know exactly where TOJ stands regarding their available stock of leather, but it stands to reason that at some point they would stop adding more stock and work on finishing up what they have. Where that point in time is, I don't know. It's possible that with a year's worth of production to go, it's too early. Or not. Regardless, one doesn't have to "smoke" anything to suggest that...
