the real color is like a mix of the two. At least on my Macbook right now.

Dayum, so many nice ToJs lately...Makes me want another. Shame I just bought a Plokhov leather, hard to justify 3 leathers without even a brown pair of boots

It makes me want mine period, it's been getting cool lately so it's always a musicboohoo[1].gifmoment for me.

This makes me so stoked for my dark brown goat cwu.

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.

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!

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my newly arrived A-2. Fit is pretty good but should probably have increased the width at pit more than I did. Arm movement is slightly restricted when I want to put my hand up high. Hopefully it will get a bit better with wear.

personal bias but I don't like normal collars on leathers  i.e. collared moto, non ribbed cwu, A-2 without the shearling.

First post here on Styleforum.......No better way to kick off initiation with TOJ icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.  Been a long time follower and I hope the below helps future buyers.
I'm 5"10.5 with shoes on, 75kg. TOJ1 sz 50 with 23.5 body & 30" sleeves (i'm usually a size 48. Make sure to size up 1 on the TOJ1, which was also recommended by team TOJ)

 

Hindsight > perhaps 0.5" shorter in the body and add 1" on the sleeves.  Because of the MTM nature of TOJ's business, its very easy to get all OCD with measurements in hopes for the perfect fit. As such, I contemplated whether to sell my TOJ1 just for an inch here and there. But all I needed was a good slap across the head to knock some sense in me (courtesy of wife) to stop sweatin the small stuff.  

 

This is my first TOJ purchase and it won't be my last.  I went for little to no stacking on the sleeves as I was worried of the excess leather on sleeves look.  It may not appear on the pics but it feels like the sleeves 'just' made it to the wrist break.  Silly risk on my part because any shorter, it definitely would have been too short.  The varsity style is forgiving and its best to add an extra inch.  In fact, I wonder how many times Charlie has read similar posts to mine and said to himself "I TOLD YOU SO!!!".  Charlie's recommendations were in fact closer to my hindsight analysis.     

 

Black MDR awaits (lets go team TOJ), which i'm extremely nervous about.  Why???....because I tweaked some of TOJ's sizing recommendations and I can't stop thinking that I should trusted their experience.    

 

My TOJ wish list - TOJ 2.3 DR & A2 repro (similar to the old 2.2 bomber).

The secretary working this evening just called me and was like "what the heck did you order from korea" and I got real excited...

but when she described the package I realized it was just my replacement monitor (which is not quite as exciting) which I had returned to korea.
