Johnson's is american labor, ToJ/Luxire is cheap asian labor
ToJ is buying leftover skins from a marketplace, not putting in orders for fulfilment
ToJ does not use RiRi zippers (which are awful for jackets in my opinion anyway)
ToJ uses cheap linings
ToJ needs to only generate profits for Drew Keith, not for Johnson's leather, honourmark and Styleforum
and so on
Furthermore, the lack of "infrastructure" (by which I assume you mean accounting/management type things)...
