I bet they will tell you all that and more right away...

I'm sure you hate questions like this, but would it be possible to make the shirts individually again? It's the best shirt I can imagine for $100 in no small part due to the ability to choose the fabric. I love my black ox and I am fcked in finding anything similar.

Yeah, I'm going to go to Seoul, track down all the Temple of Jawnz cutters and sewers, and steal them away with promises of profit-sharing in my new leather daddy accessories business based out of my South of Market warehouse/ bear on twink nightclub.

I didn't ask for the addresses of their local leather sources or whether the daughter of the guy who does their winter parkas is into white dudes. Since impolyt_one was talking about how the idea for ToJ started, I was curious about how they got production off the ground, because I'm impressed at how they cut through all the bs to start a business in South Korea.

Cross post from Sufu Just received my bomber this morning, might be a bit of a long feedback but What can I say this jacket deserves it. THIS **** IS THE BEST If you are a short guy like me (5'5 110lbs) and have had trouble all your adult life finding jackets that fit TOJ is the only way to go. At least for me I think it will be from now on. These guys are great, fast email replies and very helpful with the sizing. I just really wished I went with you guys earlier but I was really skeptical about sizing and measuring myself and just made an impulse buy on NYE when you mentioned about bringing the prices up again. I ended up going with a stock 42 (yeah you read that right fellow short/skinny guys, these guys have size 42 and XXS) with the chest and mid body measurements taken in by half an inch. Charly actually originally recommended to get an inch longer in the body but I went against that for some reason and when my brother saw me the first thing he said said 'Is your jacket a bit short?' (It reaches my belt line) but I dont care it looks awesome regardless. Only complaint (not really though) is that it feels a bit awkward getting my hands into the side pockets but I think its more because its a small size Anyways heres a quick fit pic. (bad rushed photo with a dirty mirror) I will definitely be following you guys and see what you have instore for us in the future and might actually go with the duffle in XXS some time soon. You guys are gunna bleed me dry. Just another thing that surprised me was that the fuzzycollar is detachable and when I opened the bag I was thinking to myself 'WTF I didnt ask for this option' and I think I actually like it more when its on. Its almost like having two jackets in one

Already put my order in for fishtail, but I was wondering if the parka would have dropped shoulders if I ordered TTS (I'm a true XS and ordered a size 44, can I expect dropped shoulders)?
post #252 of 41362
Thread Starter 
it won't. Dropped shoulders if if you upsize and specify that.
post #253 of 41362
I really want to order the fishtail parka, but I'm waiting on some fit pics first. Wonder how it's going to look on the average SF type.
post #254 of 41362
nvm.
