ya wtf can you even button that thing up


anyways on the eve of the deadline, I need some opinions on sizing on the bbal, I want that nice and relaxed like synthese's fit int he baseball jacket

my body measurements are

front body length: 25"
hips (at pubic bone where I got the body length): 39"
waist: 32"
chest: 42"
arms: 15.5"
shoulder: 18"
sleeve: 25"

my jacket (only jacket with me coz all my winter coats are at university house), which is fairly fitted
shoulders 18"
p2p 22.5"
midsection 22.5"
waist (ribbed) 19"
front length 23" (it hits where I want the baseball to hit, at the pubic bone, but it's 2" shorter than my body??)
back length (from bottom of collar) 27.5"
sleeve 25.5"
pit width 8"
elbow width 7"
wrist width 5.5"


I gave these to charly, and he said 54 or 52, so I'm trying to decide, here are the the stock measurements http://templeofjawnz.com/?page_id=429

also, someone else ( I think it was Dbear? or Gbear?) got it right - don't go for the most aggressive color in the least aggressive design, bad match up.

Lol, I think I just have big arms for my size.. my body isn't actually that big so sizing up wouldn't work :/

This is what my similarly sized DR fits like:

Drew- do you want to weigh in on how the 4zip vs 3zip mdr effects the look of the midsection/hips?

I know you've said you really liked the 4zip mockups...but you're also the designer of the 3zip--is it just a change in your preferences?

really no difference, just preference for hand pockets or not. People protest the horizontal pockets but honestly, short jackets like this are a bit short to think about putting your hands in anyway, if wearing a TOJ I'd never put my hands in the jacket pockets, just saying. I use my jeans pockets for the straight-arm look, rather than walking around like a coat hanger. I use my jacket to hold things, that's why the zips are good. Nothing like the feeling of security you get from putting a money clip or something in a jacket's zip pocket rather than your jeans pocket or something.

Why not just email Charly to ask? How are random people on the internet going to be able to answer that?

Mostly, about TOJ clothes - the future is not decided yet, Charly and Dan and I still haven't decided when we will come back to work once current orders are done and we go on a true vacation. I plan to come back with a collection or collections (the pieces to which I have thought up already), rather than the piecemeal MTM things we have had before, it will be different. In this game there is always room for something new, changes, improvements, etc.

Maybe for women or something. I'm thinking of doing a 2010 DR'ish base and then doing all-over painting in the style of old floral decoupage in oil. Maybe that or something like a leather jacket with a centered still life painted on the back, the latter idea may be better suited to men.

Not sure if it's too early to ask this, but I'm curious - does your plan for this new biz caz based collection include button down shirts with ornate prints/patterns? Like, something that would appeal to people who are into high fashion/mode-kei, seeking something fresh with carefully selected Japanese textiles&dyeing processes? I know that TOJ has done shirting before, but it seems like you want to take it in a different direction - possibly one reflecting your interest in mode-kei styles. You've also mentioned before that you'd like to do something artistic, so I guess that is what has made me wonder if you'll be taking a stab at this aspect of design.

I guess what I'm asking is if we should expect really cool monograms/prints/patterns in rich Hermes-esque colors drawn up by Drew Keith&other artists, or will it be more along the lines of TOJ trousers - cool, thoughtful construction details and quality fabric?
