  • knits
  • hoodcoat (wool or cotton)
  • scarves
  • mac coat (either wool, cotton, tech material, or some combo of all 3)
  • black denim (raw or overdye)

How about some trousers that have someone like Charly in mind with the tree trunk thighs? Keep it a little roomy in the seat but still have a pretty nice taper. I think you can do this well.

Love you too Drewski, was a tad worried you would be all "I dont even know if im coming back dawgie dawg"

Re: All this tech talk, I would be really suprised if Drew got down with the tech, Undercover is sorta having its thing ATM but the retail on those pieces is pretty damn high for a reason, tech materials are hard to get a hold of, expensive to use and manufacture with and come with creatively stifling contracts. (see: Goretex) Also, I dont think tech stuff is ToJ? Tech has people besides ToJ doing it and though we all dream, we gotta be realistic, Drews gotta have beers to drink, cigs to smoke and mc chickens to eat.


I'll expand on what I would like, keeping in mind that its not what I want ToJ to be, but what I think is achievable and a good place to go.


Everyone talks about wanting knits and what not, but I think people will find it really really hard to pay for nice knits @ RRP with no discounts, and will want cray cray fabrics like metallics etc and that would be damn damn hard for ToJ to do as it is.


Well if the ToJ x Toyo goes through:

Replica Black MA-1
Replica Black N3-B


ToJ Fit x Perfect construction would be amazing next level, maybe even final level. I think a whole lot more then ToJ fanbois would be all over this.

Denim

Black Raw / Black Overdye with Drews detailing, which I would imagine would pretty much be APC style (silver rivets, modern cut, no embeliishments) made in the land of Jawnz itself, with nicer denim and no slave Macau labor.

Black Lamb Suede MA-1
Black Suede Members Only


MA-1's pretty big ATM, ricks on that tip, plenty of smaller companies are on that tip. They sorta just bubble along and come back every few years.

My imagined black suede MA-1 would be lightly constructed, like the T1 / T3 jackets. I'd want it light, with the same deets as the previous ones Drew has put out. You could even do the webbing patch in black calf or something like that?

Members Only jackets are ready for a comeback IMO. The BoO one was nice, but would be better in a suede. Again, lightly constructed, gotta make it relaxed.

Black Satin MA-1


I already have one from Geller, but Im suprised you havent done anything like this. I cant imagine the cost of the materials would be high at all, and with your current MA-1 fit (which is aweome) it would look dead baller.

Nice, light and good for layering. I wear mine with oversized scarfs, a white T, black overdyes and carpes.

People are all about shoes / sneakers but that stuff is gonna be hard MTO, can see that being a huge problem. Leather goods would be awesome again, I cant find a wallet I like and my ToJ zip wallet is on its way out frown.gif

Almost like a duster, if it were a trench coat. Maybe a zipper and a gun flap? Now I'm rambling.

Yes this sounds great

How was your honeymoon Razele? Thanks again for the MMM nod[1].gif

Knits will be expensive I'm sure, but probably not other-worldly expensive unless it's some exotic metallic? Mauro's doing knits (HQ cashmere etc) for his F/W collection and the price doesn't seem prohibitively expensive. About MA-1's, I don't recall seeing too many pics of Drew's anniversary MA-1, which was essentially the satin one you described.

I have the MA-1 Anniversary, probably my favorite ToJ piece.

Elastic waistband/cuff pants

How about TOJ's rendition of a minimalist hooded coat? Something similar to that grailstatus Bless hooded coat? I know you already have the duffle, but I'm sure you can minimalise it like how you guys did DR -> MDR. We all know how popular/nice that turned out to be.
