The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1127

I hope the UCDR will at least be counted as a success story ... redface.gif

Speaking of which, I wore the fur to work today and snapped a few pics. It definitely works better when the jacket is open, I think. Of course, if it's cold enough to wear the fur, I don't really want the jacket open ... lol

Honest question.

Reminds me too much of the Kin jawn at this point

Unc, burn that fur. Looks a million times better without.

But that's $150 worth of fur....

Exactly.

Well, it's possible that in the end the fur was a mistake -- particularly so since it's much different than I expected. I just wanted to give it a shot. I think it could look cooler if it wasn't so big.

Speaking for myself (i.e. not the TOJ target audience), I think it's the most MC friendly of your offerings. That and the A-2, which is nice but I don't think ribbed collar/cuffs looks good on bigger dudes like myself. It also doesn't work with french cuff shirts, which is all that I own.

The 2011 moto is awesome too, but my shirts have tall collars and long points which would look funny popping out of a band collar.

The MDR is probably my favorite TOJ piece, and probably my next purchase, but in the context of how I dress it would be a statement piece. It would look try-hard if I wore it more than once in a while.

The moto/MDR also look best in black or grey IMO. I wear a lot of cotton trousers in beige/brown, and 80% of time time I wear brown loafers. Also my go-to casual shirt is a navy v-neck tee (I have about 25). I don't think black/grey leather would always clash, but it would be something I'd have to think about every time I throw together an outfit.

It's fur from an animal man, what do you expect? The stuff doesn't get shaved down, the animal gets killed expressly because the fur is a certain length and it's to be enjoyed that way. It's like, comparing Jeremy Lin's haircut to mine.

I think it was just a competition thing. Uncontrol wanted twice as many animals to be killed for his jacket than for anyone else's.

I can respect that.

Well, I had written this ...

For the fur, it definitely needs to be black fur, but I don't want something huge and outrageous really. Something like this is fine: http://keisshop.no-blog.jp/photos/uncategorized/2009/09/19/p1570357.jpg So, contrary to what you might have been expecting (lol), I don't want something huge and fluffy, I want something fairly tame and sort of wavy. Is it OK?

It's not like this is the fur I requested and am now mad about it -- I was pretty surprised when I opened the jacket. I could see this fur being really cool on the fishtail, or anything that does not hug so closely to the neck, though. I don't hold it against you -- obviously you can only buy what your suppliers have available, but it's just very difficult for me to wear redface.gif

As I have been trying to put into so many words - what you can put on paper or photoshop is not necessarily possible in real life; also, there must be liberties taken on the executive side to put practice into play; we exchanged 75 emails for the Uncontrol DR and there were comments I made regarding this over the course of discussion; it was merely trying to align what was fantasy (your photoshop) into a real life, tangible product.

Also, FWIW - your fur collar looks fine, it looks like fur. Shorter hair would either be too thin, or too cropped (like shearling - which is called shearling because it's shorn) - not in line with the design ideals of the jacket, I feel.

I actually don't dislike the fur.  I don't think very many other people here could wear that, but it very much goes with the leather pants + anaconda jacket glam thing you have going, you know?
