The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1542

The ball and chain style is fantastic. They look really cool IRL. They're a good change of pace from the standard zipper pulls you see on everything.

Couldn't agree more. Was a bit doubtful at first myself but once I got the jacket I realized they were the best choice.

the regular pull looks awkward if its not stuck in between the leather around the pocket whereas the ball and chain zips just look natural.
you can also stick them under the leather and it holds in place if it really irks you.
the actual ball and chain pull is really cool to look at and doesnt look dainty at all satisfied.gif

Go to your nearest tailor/alteration place and ask for help with the required measurements if you must. This will not be free.

or just buy a cloth tape measure for like $2 and measure yourself

I know that is what I am doing. But I am attaching one end of the tape with a scotch tape to my body so I can measure it as outlined in the blog in a relaxed position.

I know how they look, I have two TOJ leathers (and a third on the way). I just don't get the idea of them on the breast pockets. Can't help but seeing ear ring nipple piercings all the time uhoh.gif

But that's not to say they're not top quality hardware, because they are.

The thing with leather jackets is, there are a ton of possibilities, but really, it comes back to the same classical details that make for nice jackets. Just a matter of mixing them into a nice looking piece. I think the YKK's are pretty cool actually. I have been on a months-long bender doing some soul searching and constantly thinking about leather jackets and all that, and keep coming back to the idea that classic is best. Maybe I'll rearrange some of the older TOJ's a little and see what I come up with later.
