it is supposed to ride very short, and the shoulders are supposed to be nearly squared, it slims the arms more that way without making it too tight. It's not supposed to be supremely tight fitting.

maybe so, but imo, the squared off shoulders only help to accentuate what i think is a jacket thats too short to start with

did you toy with the idea of softening the shoulder area?

you can specify that on your own, if you know your measurements and want a sleeve head that rides up above the natural shoulder.

i would probably go for a dr with invisible snaps or a bomber

can you please enlighten us with the subtle styling changes that you have in mind for the leathers

with hindsight, are there any styling cues that in your opinion need some tweaking?

I have been making the same designs from the outset until now, without changes; the reason I had mentioned possible design changes is because I've been seeing the same designs for about 5 months straight now. I don't know what further changes I'd make, but I think it might be different designs altogether, outside of the 3 I have now. Possibly while still offering the original designs. I think in terms of learned wisdom, I would recommend the smallest sizes (<48) go beltless on the DR, and then possibly epaulet-less to match) because the belt really pops out a lot; the width of the belt is not variable between sizes and so the same belt width and buckle goes on basically every jacket. Looks really nice on the big sizes, but on the 44's and 46's, I feel it's pushing it maybe. It's personal taste and some people really like the belt so that's not a definite thing; for me, I'd probably go beltless on my own for cleanliness. Motos, they are best with the standard 4 zip front. Changing them around can have weird results IMO. Bombers are always fking immaculate, and the fur is highly recommended. It's $30 extra but I am passing along that part at cost, because I think it really makes the attitude of the jacket. Even if you get it and don't wear the fur part on it, it's nice to have for someday later when tastes and trends change. A fur-collared Bomber is a nice wardrobe staple, they come in and out all the time, and they are gonna be big soon, I feel. It's not a perfect historical replica of an A2 or a G-1, and it's supposed to be on the slimmer side to represent a more fashionable silhouette (check out I<3Bacon in WAYWT, he's wearing the original TOJ Bomber), but it's the most forgiving cut and gives to a lot of guys of different sizes a good fit. I'm thinking of making a tiny shrunken one for my girlfriend even. Ask anyone whose gotten a lamb Bomber, and they will tell you it's nuts. When I go to pick up Bombers each week, I get really excited because they are so insanely well-made with out a skip. The guy who makes those actually puts saran wrap down on top of the leather while he sews, and tears it away from the seams after he's done, so as not to damage the leather with the foot of the sewing machine.

I've been thinking about a bomber for my girlfriend. Funny you mention that. She's pretty tiny though. How low can you go for sizing?

I really love the look of your moto and think the house cut/styling is the way to go. I know the ability to change things around is pretty enticing but drew has an awesome vision for his stuff. I think I read that you're no longer doing grey motos? That may end up pushing me towards the peacoat. I hope to put in an order monday for one of the two.

Real talk: Can I pull off a DR?
post #2214 of 8365
I'm a little worried about my Oxford shirt... I ordered a Medium, but I finally got a hold of a measuring tape and measured one of my Medium-Tall Banana Republic slim fit shirts. Pit-to-Pit seems to be 23" and sleeve length 27". This sounds more like an XL in TOJ sizing...

imo dr jackets should only come in black

any other color is just not right

If that grey DR is wrong, I don't want to be right.

DR's exude masculinity, but not in a grey, ok missy and if you ask mr toj, im sure he would agree
