I get that the Toj is based on a classic design, but ... it even has the nipple tassels

that thing looks well made, but the actual importance of things matching up and doing what they are gonna do took second seat here. For example. the leather looks ok and the main and horizontal zippers are Riri, but the verticals are YKK. The pulls don't even match up. In the classical LL version (which the TOJ is based upon) the pocket zippers are most definitely all matching. The Japanese have been doing this a lot lately, because the Riris are expensive to import and the YKKs are local; TOJ buys YKK at import so it really doesnt make a big difference to us, we'd just have to wait half an eternity to get Riris. The office uses faxes and actual paperwork to do real business to, they take forever.

i have a hard time understanding why they wouldn't just use 4x YKK on the pockets. the Toj is definitely nicer either way.

Why not just buy the zips in japan and then smuggle them to korea in a suitcase?

Bonus points if you pack them to look like zippers inside of zippers inside of zippers inside of a zipped bag....

Damn that jacket looks long. Not bad though, always fun to see people do an interpretation of a classic design.

Buttonholes will probably be darned by hand, buttons will be chickenfooted on. The sides will have proper gussets, and a nice single needle stitch in two parts (body and sleeve single-needled separately) - cuffs and collars will have full floating interface. We are talking the full meal deal. Add in Japanese selvedge oxford cloth and the thickest pure MOP dished buttons I've ever seen on any shirt.
There's a problem forming; the shirts are going to be at such a high level, where I will need to bring everything else up to the appropriate level if I want any kind of consistency. Looks like I have some work to do. redface.gif This is how I want TOJ to be, going forward though. Similar to what you know, but I'm looking for that next level.
D....this gives me a full on stiffy. such great stuff!!

metal zippers are incredibly heavy. Hand carrying stuff like that is out. Rolls of fabric are really ridiculously heavy too.

Shaped my A2 collar without water by keeping it buttoned down all summer. It gives the shearling collar a nice natural roll when you attach it, and (imo) makes it a bit more comfortable to wear.

my tracking number isnt, uhh, tracking
post #22002 of 40840
Where are you putting in the tracking number? It won't show up on USPS until it lands in the US, try track-trace's EMS option.

post #22004 of 40840
thanks, that trak-trace post site worked very well. EMS's own tracking site doesn't seem to work. It was sorta ghetto though ,seemed third party.


tracking says customs has it here in San Francisco icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

If you know the tail number of the plane your jawn is on, you can just google it and actually see where it is over the ocean.
