just happens that way sometimes, dudes. If I only offered black lambskin jackets at $1000 a piece, they'd still be nice and not disappointing for the price, and they'd only take 2-3 weeks to make, but yeah, that would get old quickly and not serve many people what they need....

Its just when you are used to immediate satisfaction, it seems longer hah. Its really not that bad, I only think about it once or twice a week now

Tokyo has terrible pho, but they look noodle soup. Wide open spaces.

that's funny because I know a bunch of vietnamese people that studied and stayed in tokyo pre war....

Tokyo pho. let's do this man. I'm more serious about this than my taco truck idea (which by now you know, could've been the first to take the world by storm)

Pure corn.

It's not in season just yet, so I don't expect to finished with the shearling til the end of summer. It will cost a lot and I don't expect to make many. Good shearling material is 3-4X the cost of the lambskin - that's comparing the quality of the finish on the leather side of the shearling to the NZ lamb we use. It's expensive, needless to say.

A square of shearling is 12 bucks (NZ and French lamb is 3-4 bucks a square, which is high in terms of leather - there are crappy leathers that cost 50 cents a square) and you need 50 squares for a jacket, so do the math on that, that is not including the hardware or labor (expensive), or shipping (not so expensive but still high). Figure that I have to price it so that I can afford to remake the same exact order again if things go awry and not lose my ass, and we're in a good deal above a stack. Like I said, it'll be expensive and I don't expect to make tons.
It'll be nice though.



It's going to start to get cold so I thought I'd bump these thoughts that have been floating around in the spring and summer.... I'm guessing the TOJ shearling is not happening for this winter (unless Drew is preparing another one of his impactful new product launch very soon) - any chance it may happen next year?
