Haha, I'm a pretty quiet dude by nature so sometimes I think I would come off as arrogant for not carrying the conversation on for longer.

The peacoat was the only thing I had tailored to bring out the sleeves. The tailor commented on the wonderful construction.

The bombers tend to get the most comments. The brown for the fur collar. And people like the whiskey hue on the other one.

The DRs get comments from girls as being edgy and guys joke around and ask if I want to be Fonzie or something.


I'm still tempted to order a varsity, man. I already know how that goes...I will email Charly just to see what size I'm in for the piece and Paypal will be sent sooner or later. foo.gif


I think ToJ pieces get complimented because they really stand out when they are sized right.

Just based on your WTB signature, those measurements sound like trouble. When I briefly owned a ToJ moto in what was more or less a 50, the chest was *just* right, and that's back when my chest was 40".

I remember that, I wasn't a huge fan of CWU45 until i saw that one. If i ever trashed my black CM i would snatch that jacket up in a heart beat!

Why are there so many people who don't seem to understand how basic sizing works? Those numbers at the top of the chart aren't arbitrary, they're sizes. A size European 48 is a US size 38, which means it's sized for a 38" chest. I wonder, then, why a 41" chest had trouble squeezing into a size 48.

Lamb leather has increased in price by over 35% since I started buying it two years ago from my supplier; I am not sure whether the guy is scalping or what, but it's the lifeline of TOJ's jackets. Calf has also risen about that much, it comes and goes in availability, but it's about the same story but rarer. We just need a little more compensate for the increased material cost at this point, and are not multiplying that by the factors that normal entities would have to do to price a product.

Leather jackets are $735 now, for basic black (also brown on the Bomber and CWU-45). Non-standard colors are still the same 50 extra because that zipper dying cost has not changed.
blacked out hardware and zippers are a free option on the black leathers, and not available on any other color.

VTG leathers, same price, $810.

Baseball jackets are discontinued.

Peacoats, same price, $495

Duffle coat will be $515

Fishtail will be $550, as last year.

TOJ1's, the ones that I've been really needing to adjust the price on from the get go, are $380 now. I'm thinking about discontinuing that model sooner or later, as it was the fall model.

Classic shirts (OCBDs) are still the same $120, but I'm thinking of discontinuing those soon too.

Overall, just a few bucks here and there to keep the pieces going.

Prices are effective immediately. (if you've had an email conversation going with Charly before 4:17am Nov 10 EST in America, then you're still okay to pay the old price)

That can't be right. 21" p2p on a 48 for a 38" chest?

Isn't there a ~2" vanity sizing difference? I'm a 39" chest and always fitted in between 48 and 46, usually leaning towards 46 for coats and 47 for leathers.

I'm 36.5" chest and I wear 46. I can't imagine having a 39" chest and fitting into a 46.

Anyway, my solution to that - we will be basing the 2011 Fishtail on the one from last year, but it'll just get tweaked so that the back will be a little longer, and that's about that. Same as ever, like the Peacoat.

Hey Drew some suggestions for the fishtail, being an owner of one of the navy 2011 models. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I ordered my fishtail slightly oversized and I think it looks pretty fucking bad ass on me. I know you're never going to aim for that look as the default drew but I much prefer the way the shoulders and sleeve lengths sit and the body length falls on my coat to a lot of the images in the gallery. P2p my coat is a little big for me but I don't mind it.One complaint i have is that the hood, when fully extended with the dilophosaurus leather frill, is fucking enormous. People have talked about this. I can only assume that you decided to have the hood this way so that when it's not worn it completely covers the shoulders and creates a cool visual effect or you literally wanted to model a military issue coat that would fit a helmet under the hood. That's how big the hood on this thing is for those of you who don't know. With the frill folded up, it's fine, however I for one would like to show off one of the coolest details about this piece. IPart of the appeal of the coat is that it's something I want to wear in foul weather, except I have to kinda fuck with the hood in order to see out from under it because it's sooooo big. Weirdly, I rarely wear my fox fur trim, probably because my ex was super offended by it and I'm now attached to the simple leather wool contrast.

I agree with your impulse to lengthen the back, that's probably my only other complaint with the coat, is that it doesn't look super fish-tail-y to me because the back is almost square and nearly even with the front. I also tied off the tail draw string because it was catching on shit, it looks pretty cool. For a little bit I was also fucking with the waist draw string, pulling it tight and tying it and trying to achieve the cinched waist look. Didn't look too great because the fabric is just too big and the way my coat is cut there's just too much material but it's actually kind of a fun way to close up the jacket if you don't feel like fucking with the buttons or the zipper. Actually I don't think I've ever used the zipper, I mostly just use the collar button(s) but that' just me, I think it looks real awesome with just one of those high buttons done and the rest open.

Anyway I love my fishtail, I wear it all the time, I break it out pretty much as soon it's like 60 and a little rainy, I pull the liner out and use it as a rain coat, it's just so cool and the navy black contrast it pretty epic. Sometimes I wish I had gone with brown or grey since sometimes I don't want navy over by mostly black outfits when I pull that out. I think it would be fucking amazing if you offered the fishtail in a super light ashey grey almost white or canvas color, and also a very dark heathered charcoal in addition to the medium grey, navy, black, green/brown. Gonna throw it on in a minute over heat tech t, cut off sweats, leggings and cp his on my way to the gym for an intramural dodgeball tournament. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Same here. My chest measures 37'' on the dot and I wear a 46 in most ToJ pieces.
