Black & White TOJ1 was just delivered to me at work. 5 oclock cannot come soon enough.

I think this is not necessary - brown would be the wrong color, and black would be a better color - better to match to your hair and contrast with brown skin with a black jacket, than to just be brown all the way up to your hair. It's why I can't wear grey or tan that much.

Drew, how rare are off white leather?

It's not rare, it's just not that nice. Also, you need go go boots, silver lipstick, and a mountain of coke to complete that look.

TOJ1 in hand yesterday. Gotta love EMS, from South Korea in 3 days. 46 fits me perfectly, thanks for the sizing help Drew.

The camo side is pretty tough. A little more uncomfortable than I expected but I am sure it'll soften up with wear.

thinking of ordering a black lamb QDR. seen all the fit pics online in the gallery and wanted to know if anyone owns one in black with all black hardware? what do you guys recommend, going with the default gunmetal hardware and regular zips or black/black?
post #10809 of 45035
Gunmetal. I find the black makes the zippers look like they're made of plastic.

If you're interested, post in that thread to let me know so I can plan accordingly. I'm aiming to get at least handful of you guys (pause) for measurements (pause).

Hmm...I might wanna get measurements for a VTG CM. It's probably as simple as tweaking the measurements on my DR for a less slim fit, maybe adding a little length to the body.

this is not so in real life, it's anodized black, so it looks like flame-blacked metal. Somebody does have a blacked out QDR but I think they never posted back on the forums, I think we made one or two. Looks good. Any of them look good with black hardware. I don't know how many of those we have left but black zippers are limited.

Been wearing my A-2 non-stop and every time I wear it it gets compliments, "oooh aaah" type stares, and people wanting to touch it Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
(after which i slap their hands away and yell "DON'T TOUCH THE WATCHJACKET!" like patrick bateman).

This didn't happen that much with the varsities. Thank you, based Drew. worship.gif

Here's a blacked out QDR:

It looks nice.

I'll bring my measuring tape so I can wrap it around your body.
