The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1328

post #19906 of 44298
Thread Starter 
stopping orders is just that - we have seen the order load increase and we had to find a point where we were gonna cut the tap off on orders, in order to fulfill the ones we have and maybe create a break where we can develop new stuff. Being undermanned in this scenario is good for costs, but it means we gotta create our pace sometimes. Really no way around it at this point. Breaks may become even more commonplace for us in the future as we utilize time-sucking factory runs to wait on, as well as the added local market that might buy into some of the stock. I am not sure at this point, just taking it as it comes. I am not trying to push it into being something else, rather I am just looking at all of this as a way for the entity to breathe and be healthy.

It's not going to be a massive flagship shop like I said, just a modest showroom. We've met up with a number of people over the years in Korea, and Korea isn't exactly a place where internet fashion dudes even go, so I imagine the turnout at the Tokyo store will be pretty good, actually.

So did you ever decide on a name?

Last time someone asked I just said Drew Keith. Couldn't be bothered explaining.

"...temple of what?"

"jawnz? what is that?"

Don't expect to get any helpful answers, this is highly subjective... based not only on torso length, but also how high above their ass line they want the jacket hem to extend... if your hips are disproportionately large etc ...

If you follow the measurement instructions for the bomber, and get it to hit just below the belt line, very close to your natural waist, nowhere near as long as a OCBD etc

then you can probably decrease the overall length by ~0.5 ~ 1.00

I'm browsing the gallery, looking for some ideas/inspiration but a lot of those DR examples seem a bit too long, waters down the aggressiveness , no?

I'd love to see a 4zip MDR in black goat.

 

Bomber looks good btw. Black lamb?

I placed my order 2 weeks agao and today asked Charly if possible to add some length to my A2 bomber - no reply so far. Has anyone been in this situation ? I guess they havent started to do the paper pattern anyway so it should be fine...

Well, it's only one day, and today is mother's day, so it's quite possible that he's busy atm, but at two weeks I wouldn't fret about it being too late to make changes.

Payment sent 24 of April, made changes 9th of may. So you should be fine.

 

Question: My body-measurements for the sleeves was 24", and Charly suggested 24,4" for the sleeve length.

Should I ask for longer sleeves, or just trust Charly in this ?

 

Edit: It's a black lamb MDR.

Ordered a 4-pocket Moto in brown goat with brown taped silver zips. cheers.gif

I also asked Charly about something you and I discussed last year while he was away... he might contact you about it. I may be hoping beyond hope... shog[1].gif

That sounds rad. I've just joined the black 4-zip DR order club. I've missed having a rider. Now, hopefully someone also buys an A2 or CWU and it doesn't fit them so I can have it (sorry)

After browsing the gallery, medium grey is what I actually meant.
