First time I hear of this theory though. I'm 6'2", 200lbs and 43" chest and have three ToJ DRs... I haven't been self-conscious about it... at least until now redface.gif

Does anyone else have a problem with the TOJ gallery where the browser loads the thumbnails first but then right after loading they disappear and you get the broken image picture? Had this happen in both Firefox and Chrome. Makes it a bit annoying to browse...

Yes, it's been brought up before. I thought it was isolated to Chrome, but you can always just use IE.

Ok, well I think that settles it. Those are my measurements and the pictures of you wearing the DRs sure don't seem like they are having a negative visual proportioning effect.

Now I just have to get my measurements nailed down. (and figure out how they should be tweaked...I gained some fat after an injury but I don't plan to really keep it now that I am active again)

edit: and I guess deciding between black or gray...although the gray idea is also pushed forth by one of gdl's posts.

I think when Drew means big guys he means fat dudes. I don't think the quilted DR would go well on bigger guys either mainly because it'll give an impression of a wider frame. But I think it also has to do with proportions, someone with a more defined face and longer neck could fit well, then someone with a shorter neck and rounded face. You could be 6'2" and 200 lbs and be fit where your to where you look slim.

I mean I'm 5'8" with 42 chest at 165 and I've tried on DR in the past and I thought they looked good. I think it's more about proportions and how you fit in the jacket, we all have a different outlook on what looks good and what doesn't. I mean I don't think I could pull off those super thin Julius, Rick Owens, etc because they don't fit my taste or how I would think would look good on me, honestly I personally think most of that style looks kind of weird but that's solely my opinion on my taste.

Yep.

Alright...well, I don't think I'm too fat to preclude wearing one....and it really is visually my favorite of the current TOJ pieces (and one that would benefit most from MTM), so MDR it is.

Thanks. Sadly I outgrew all my TOJ shit (which will be up for sale once I get off my lazy ass... but then again, I've been telling myself this for months). Come at me, sz 46's.

EDIT: LOL FUCK ok guys i will put up a formal ad

To be honest, it looks the same...

fit is different + details camera couldn't pick up,
flare I used to have around wasted is minimized, and back has more curve to it.
