Because I just like oxfords sometimes. They apply to contemporary tastes, but also serve as the collared shirt to go with the predominantly American-inspired leathers I make. You don't have to wear a collared shirt with a leather but it works, and vice versa.

Declared value doesn't make a difference, I bought 8 bucks of insurance though. But yeah, it was express, there was a cheaper option ($48) but no tracking and 6 weeks to get there so I was pretty hesitant to send a jacket worth the better part of a grand that way.

I can't wait for no more MTM. I sometimes think about ordering another 1 or 12 jackets, but even momentarily contemplating the measurements exhausts me. And all the ones I do have fit well. Maybe I'm alone in this.

I think MTM is pretty dangerous, and only really useful to those whose bodies are exceedingly unusual (ie huge chest to waist drop or ultra long arms, etc). Pretty much everyone perceives some aberration about their body and addresses it through MTM, with pretty mixed results. Plus, makes the jacket a lot harder to resell if it doesn't work out.

I think stock sizes will lead to a lot more consistently happy buyers.

I agree with Synthese.  Although my ultimate preference is what they currently have going for the TOJ1.  Fixed sizing with the ability to modify sleeve and body length only.  Maybe for DR's (or any jacket without elastic cuffs) they will throw in the option to modify cuff width as well.  biggrin.gif

 

And on the topic of fixed sizing, I hope the fixed sizing table includes in between sizes like 47, 49, 51 etc.

Thanks. That sounds true. You really seem to trust on contemporary classics.

Hah, I only just got it myself. I can see it creating lots of ridiculous questions.

 

I'll be sad to see TOJ go, though. The acronym and logo are just strong. Solid. Tight.

I like TOJ better too. And is there a pun to the John Coppidge name or what?

Maybe I missed something but I don't think he is actually renaming the line John Coppidge ...
post #23670 of 42040
Plot twist: Drew is actually just changing his name to John Coppidge.
