The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1524

Do most of you folks get your DRs shorter than your bombers? I wear my trousers at my hips, and my bomber just goes over the waistband (5'11", 23.0)

I wear my shirts untucked, so I thought too short might look odd...

That's a good fit johan. You guys should use modern-fitting jeans as your reference point if you're gonna use them at all - trousers are too high, as you can see from johan's pic.

... and I thought I was the only one with the bottle green on the West Coast

Oh, that's me. Kinda weird seeing a stalker picture of me from the back...

I got the jacket (moto in bottle green with silver zips) just a few weeks ago, been trying to wear it whenever it can because it is super-stiff. It kind-of looks bad zipped up because the stiffness makes it awkward, but looks great unzipped, so trying to break it in a bit. I think the size is fine, though, since I got an ADR in lamb in the same size, and it fits well (on the slim side, but I like that). But the moto is amazing; got nearly daily compliments when wearing it.

If anyone spots me, please say 'Hi' -- I've got a blacked-out ADR, this moto in bottle green, first-gen peacoat in black/white herringbone, grey trousers, and one of the original ToJ oxford shirts. I should really get pics of the leathers & trousers, but been super busy.

The evening weather is just about at the right place for my impending package

^You and me both. Getting a bit cold on the walk to work, could use some A2 love.

Is the Chesterfield re-design still being looked at for the real reboot? Or has the focus now switched to new peacoat/trenchcoat/labcoat designs? I remember seeing a post talking about the process (keeping the pattern mostly the same, upgrading details, etc) and then a later post where the actual sample did not meet your expectations.

I am coming to a point where I feel the clothes are reaching high levels, I mean really unimaginable if I take into account my beginnings in early 2009; but as always, I don't want to release things that aren't up to my standard of quality and complication, or value content. It'd be a quick spiral down if I ever did something like that.

4zip MDR never dissapoints
post #22858 of 44314

So my brown goat 4-zip mdr (with silver zippers, no less) arrived yesterday.  Feels laid back and think it works pretty well over basic non-baller stuff.  I like.

 

Have to echo Johan, I was impressed with how soft and comfy the goat is.  Tried to take a photo in sunlight to capture that texture.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

yeah... I need a haircut.

 

 

edit: - brad its brown goat not black - its really that dark!  brown tones are more noticeable up close in person.  I hope someone has ordered a black goat dr though!
