Curious about the bombers, as all I've ever received were Motos/DRs.  

I think DR dudes make everything (A1, harringtons, varsities etc) and crazy military guy makes the bombers

I think bomber guy also makes the toj1 because of the bomber side. I think drew said so close to launch of the jacket, but that's a while ago now.

Anyone have sizing advice for the trousers. Is there a rule of thumb like circumfrence of hips *1.xx? How large is the range of each size, as in +-0.x in? Just can't decide on a size.

^ that would explain why bombers ship faster

I ordered a peacoat 9 days before you and still no tracking so don't get too excited.

On a given jacket would such an ideal length be possible both zipped and unzipped or are you saying this ideal if for one or the other( if so which)? Or should you just perfect it for whichever configuration you'll usually go for...or a compromise between the 2?

Big dilemma right now with my 4-z goat MDR. It's length is perfect when zipped but when unzipped seems just a bit too long. Considering flipping it and reordering .5" shorter...but can I do without for about 2-4 months?!

I will have to run another cutoff soon though, so we can make the official move to John Coppidge and the new line (samples are in progress with expanded work force) so rather than waiting til the last day to get TOJ, sooner is better than later as we discovered this summer.... redface.gif

are prices on the shirts going to go up? possible changes going to be made?

On a similar note, I've been skimming through the thread to try and figure out what exactly the new label is going to change for TOJ. I remember reading the post prior to the cutoff about changes like no more MTM, etc, but can't seem to find much information past that. I'm assuming the current TOJ jackets will still be available? And are prices going up all around?

Would like to have some info in case this is the last chance I'll have to get a MDR. Been eyeing it for months and I haven't purchased a TOJ piece since the annivarsity.

My MDR that I ordered on May 29th was sent out with yesterday's shipment.

Question for the people who have experience with both the Goat and the Lamb:

How does the goat feel and and drape compared to the lamb? Thinking about trying out the lighter brown goat on an A2 (unless it makes sense to wait for John Coppidge).

It should be a bit more durable than the lamb (and obviously more textured) but what do you lose in feel/fit?
