While i'll agree the vast majority of shearlings are ugly as sin, i'll argue that it could be rescued, as with other leather,s by giving it the proper shape, I have no doubt TOJ could make something completely lustworthy.( Some may remember the woodyear argument a few months back) Sadly its a cost prohibitive material, especially when considering Drew's eye for quality and mission to deliver this quality at reasonable cost. *tear* i wont mention this again.

I really didn't appreciate this statement until I recently saw a a buzz rickson peacoat and then, subsequently, did some research.  If this is the case.  TOJ = BB, TOJ 2.0 reboot = TDK

No there are heaps of nice motos and bombers out there, this is a garbage statement

Its rare because they dont sell, not because its some fashion holy grail

Oh fuck off, for every Buzz Ricksons there are a thousand of these.

Even plenty of the historical repros look kind of shitty (I wouldn't want a Lost Worlds A2, and I don't care how many old dudes think they're awesome). Yes, there are good motos and bombers out there that aren't toj, and they're easier to find than a good, well cut shearling. But that's, you know, kind of the point?

Man, go look on Porter and see how many MA-1's / A1's / A2's they have every season

And how many shearlings that actually get bought above 70% off sale?

Ive never seen a fit posted online with one unless you count people buying garbage from a vintage store, they dont sell because A: they are hard to style and B: they cost cray cray to make a good one

Outerwear game very on point in Dark Knight Rises - Bane was on that Metal Gear bad guy shit.

All the promo pics and stuff have him in that shearling coat but he wore a badass looking field jacket thing too. Goddamn.

I see you too Joseph Gordon-Levitt, in that wool single breasted driving coat thing in that one scene at the end nod[1].gif

So I know last date for orders was about 2 months ago, but when will TOJ be back again? (i don't request specific dates, more like talking in months)
Read through the last 20 pages but didn't find anything, but then again i'm tired so possible I missed it

post #21551 of 42011
its been 2 months already?

hmm I suppose that means I should be getting closer to a tracking number.

Fishtail parka and Trousers arrived at my house in BC, unfortunately I am in Newfoundland working so I had my girlfriend take some fits, better than nothing right!

Does your girlfriend have a beer can for a crotch? Because while it might be a little sharp...that is awesome.
