i wouldn't call black marks all over my red jacket 'less than minor'

lets see the whole jacket?

Yeah, at a certain point you have to let go of your TOJ fandom for a moment and see it for what it is. If any other manufacturer did this, people would be up in arms.

i guess i must really be in the minority here.  i mean, ive found several silver marks/nicks on my jacket when it arrived, didn't think anything of it, but my wife did notice.

 

really not trying to make light of it.  just didn't think it looked bad.  i just thought it's like when you closely inspect the brogueing on your $700 shell cordovan boots and see that they missed a hole and get upset b/c the boots are "ruined", ya know.  plus he didn't say it was all over his jacket, i dont think they would ship the jacket if it was.

while some people certainly go overboard with this kind of stuff, if i'm shelling out several bills for nice clothing - whether i'm buying boots or a leather jacket - i expect nothing less than a top-notch product

I'm surprised that there's been no speculation whatsoever about the "Transformer jacket" among posters in the thread - c'mon guys.

Also, I'd love to see a TOJ flannel shirt, it's something that's very possible to produce and within the means of the brand. Are we simply far beyond something simple like that at this phase?

a jacket with zip-off lapels, perhaps?
zip-off sleeves?

bomber into DR? redface.gif

black DR with zip on white panels...that would be cool

i think im going to get a 4 zip DR (thats the one with the horizontal and vertical zips, right?) when toj reboots..

They use a silver pen to mark up the jacket. A damp cloth and elbow grease will get rid of all the silver marks.

Clearly the answer is Transformers jacket:

I have no idea what a transformer jacket is...so I google'd it and this is what I came up with...no idea if this is what drew meant.  

 

700

700

 

 

And yes...that's Wayne Brady...

Yes that's what I used. Normally the stuff will even take paint off the walls but nothing here. The silver marking stuff came off with just a damp cloth.

I was just assuming it was like a leopard fur-lined collar leather jacket worn by the 6'5" ladies on santa monica blvd between la brea and vine.
