Have not heard back from Charlie yet.   I've posted my interest in selling my spot on here but no one has taken me up on it so far. I'll keep spamming and will hopefully be out of the TOJ thread soon. I get this is MTO, but this isn't a handmade analog delay pedal, custom guitar, or gun. These are jackets and accessories and i'm just not that patient anymore.   Thanks duders!
I AM COMPLAINING TO PAYPAL. I was informed it would be useful to get more complaints on board so that PAYPAL understands the   issues that customers are having with Drew Keith/TOJ. To make my case, and hopefully your cases as well, stronger would any of you with grievances please file a complaint as well?   Sorry to spend so much time posting complaints on here, but im seriously upset at how TOJ has been handled. I can only assume now that the mistake is more...
  Had to edit. Went out of the margins. Basically, hey, I don't mean to be a dick. I'm usually a pretty understanding customer. But i'm dealing with an assetless, office-less, company that runs off a fashion forum. I have reason to be suspicious and have justification to be more than upset. $400-800 isn't THAT much money for me, but i could have bought a kill spencer black leather backpack and some dope CP/MMM/whatever sneakers with the money i've had sitting in this. 
What's that spreadsheet say? Something like 85 or more outstanding orders almost? And most of them are not small orders like daypacks or wallets. if you do the math, lets just call it $700 per jacket (i know it is more in most cases) at 85 orders is $59500 - not exactly chump change. So unless Drew's restaurant is doing exceptionally well or he's got a huge trust fund backing up these ventures, I think there is a good chance we're getting royally ****** here. Personally i...
Btw, I'm pretty much next in line here for the backpack. If anyone wants my spot, I'm willing to sell. At this point jansport is better than TOJ. I can spend the rest on booze and drugs to get my mind of this headache hahaha
Personally, I don't get those who are here to defend Drew. What stake do you have in acting unfazed by rather unsavory business and marketing management from a small jacket manufacturer? It doesn't really help that Drew has made himself terribly unavailable pretending that he is working harder than the rest of us. Still, this is all known already. I come into this thread every so often bc my girlfriend bugs me as she's the one who wants the backpack for grad classes....
If I was aware the backpack was going to take 6 months, I would have just bought something else. No backpack can be that dope. Drew is like the Bernie madoff of MTM leather jackets
I think the low tech nature of the cm b&s is a real benefit. Assuming the typical user is on the slightly older side, it's less of a hassle than subscribing to another service when they're already familiar with the forums/paypal format. I think a real advantage is styleforum has amassed a decades worth of content. That's something not many sites can replicate, giving SF it's own niche within the greater internet fashion arena. Growing the retail and b&s side also gives...
Correct. It's just an aggressive strategy to gain a foothold in the market. Once enough traffic comes through the site, they can sell that captive audience through advertisements, supplemental features for $, etcLA Guy, do you feel this affects traffic to your site? I haven't been involved much lately, but b&s seems to have been slowing down (at least on the street wear end where I assume grailed focuses on). I don't know if you view the site as "competition", but I would...
I was under the assumption all those jackets didn't go out. Perhaps they did? I understand we're not the only market for the TOJ jackets but I refuse to believe the majority jackets have ended up in largely the hands of people who don't post on the internet
