Start a TOJ frat, brah.


I always thought it'd be cool if the locals would link up for a photo opt a la Burberry ad...just a bunch of dudes wearing something like black DR, white v neck, white sneakers.

Yikes, and I keep posting classifieds for a TOJ varsity in size 48. If my chest is 41" (waist 31"), I should be looking at size 50?

Drew, do the people who make the jackets know how nerdy the internet folk are about what they do?

Yeah, gained the extra inch around the chest recently. It's not too bad around the chest, it's just the arms that are tight. It's a little difficult to bend the elbow passed 90deg and when I cross my arms, the sleeve pulls in the back and digs into the front of my shoulders. Stupid of me to think 48 in leather equates to 48 in a nonleather. Happened twice already. :/

I'm sure they're even moreso than we are. Did you see that long ass post Drew made a while ago? One of the guys covers the leather with plastic wrap when he's sewing.

But surely none as nice as my medium whiskey calf MDR will be? blush.gif

I mean do they ever browse the site/this thread or something and see what people have to say. I'm sure the average ToJ buyer is more "into" it than someone who just goes into say Nordstrom.

I tried to contact the email address for TOJ for a 2011 Varsity but never got a reply...is there a better way to reach them?

Keep trying, and make sure the address is correct.

Sure, if we start to write in Korean.

what jackets would fit guys who workout? VTG since it's supposed to be worn looser?
post #10408 of 42644
All the jackets since it's custom sized and no jackets if you plan to get bigger and bigger.

That doesn't sound too good for my order. Emailed you Drew!

Can't you just multiply your chest circumference by about 1.08 to determine your size? Maybe this only applied to leathers, but I think Drew said a while ago that 1.05 would give a very tight fit and 1.1 would be a relaxed fit, but the differences are small. If you simply match up your chest circumference with the corresponding pit-to-pit measurement in the size chart you will not be able to breathe, let alone move.

Examples from the last few posts:

39" chest x 1.08 = 42.12 / 2 = 21.1" pit-to-pit = get size 50 (21.7")
- A 48 has 20.7" pit-to-pit which is smaller than 21.1"
- Therefore a 48 will be very tight on you
- Yes, a 50 will still look "slim"
- Done

If you have a 41" chest you should probably not try to wear a jacket with a 20.7" outside pit-to-pit.

41" chest x 1.08 = 44.28 / 2 = 22.1" pit-to-pit = get size 52 (22.7")
- A 50 has a 21.7" pit-to-pit which is smaller than 22.1"
- Therefore a 50 will be very tight on you
- Done

For a very tight fit:
41" chest x 1.05 = 43.0 / 2 = 21.5" pit-to-pit = get size 50 (21.7")

Sorry Drew if I don't have my facts straight, I will delete this post if that is the case.
