I would look into a suede one for sure, it's just too bad i didn't pay enough attention to ToJ until after that piece was gone...
But I'm pretty excited about the button-downs, they look awesome in pics

Pure win. I don't have the words to express how absolutely badass that jacket is. Quick question for you TOJ veterans, approximately how long does it take to receive shirts back here in the states?

I'm in agreement; aeglus is compact, while being big upper body-wise, and if I gave him too much room in that jacket, it'd not look as good IMO. We have a lot of guys between 5'5" and 5'8"ish and I feel jacket measurements are most sensitive on them, after that there is more forgiveness.

I had to look up 'lordodic curve' and had no knowledge of the term before but I did know how I wanted that jacket to fit in the back, which is how he wears it. The heeled boots definitely affect posture and make that back curve more pronounced, but it is a good thing for overall appearance.

Got my 20s ox in steel grey. Construction is on point, fit is great (albeit a little small in the shoulders, as I expected based on measurements) I got a size large and I'm 6'2" 178 lbs. My shoulders and chest would probably do best in an XL, but this shirt fits perfectly as long as I don't tumble dry right now. Overall, very pleased with the fit and I'll probably order some more BDs when I get the funds. Thanks again. Also, excuse the shitty pics I just wanted ppl to get an idea of how the shirting fits. For me, it fits better than BoO (longer) and Gitman (slimmer).

that looks really good on you Fycus. I'd go to the XL next time if you tend to really abuse shirts and put them through hot cycles all the time, but with normal care that shirt will do just fine and it fits great too, doesn't look too small, looks pretty damn good for out of the box if you ask me.

Fycus: you're comparing your ToJ L to a Gitman L, right?
post #3577 of 8365
Correct, Normally I'd wear a L in Gitman. Also, Dis you are right the shirt fits absolutely cherry as is but being a druken college student I go to the bars a lot and get dark drinks spilled on me every now and again. The only remedy is to hotwash, and often times it makes to easier to tumble dry most my clothes. As an out of box thing, it couldn't fit better. Unfortunately, I am not careful enough to keep my clothes in pristine condition.

Got my shirts on Friday. Love the color of the red. Fit is pretty good. Maybe a tad snug.

When did you guys place an order? I put one in on last Wednesday but still have no word on it. Maybe because I ordered 4?
post #3580 of 8365
People are absurdly impatient... you realize this stuff is made to order, right?
post #3581 of 8365
No I wasn't. Thanks for letting me know.

aeglus - Sweet mercy that jacket looks dope as hell. It looks a tad tight in the chest, but not sure if it's as restricting after some wear or as much as it looks in the pics. The leather is sick though, nice.

It's nice to start to see some shirt pics start to surace.

I think it looks okay everywhere except the shoulders, it looks too constricting and the fact that you'd be wearing it "hard" and warm washing I think you would do better with a size up. At least in the shoulders if everything else looks good. Just up the shoulder width if possible, given the MTM feature.

That red looks hella delicious, but that shirt also looks too snug in the shoulders and short in the arms unless you want that look. It doesn't look comfortable now, can't imagine any better after a wash.

It's likely that I'd go with MTM over XL on my next purchase. Even with the $30 addition, its still cheaper than offerings from Gitman or BoO. The problem is my body is wayyy different than traditional types. I almost have a 42 chest and a 32 waist, plus my height usually makes it even more difficult to find shirts that fit. It doesn't help that I try and workout regularly, so the upper block on my shirts get smaller and smaller over time. As it stands, the TOJ bd is the best off the rack fit for the price. I've paid twice as much for BoO and got fits that are nothing close to as nice as this.
