The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1606

post #24076 of 42002

Toj is not Gangnam style!  Gangnam style is only department store brands like Prada, Gucci, LV.  I do have local people here in seoul comment on the quality of my many toj jackets but local guys dont wear that style.

Probably the CWU if I had to guess. Mine shipped pretty fast (like 6/7 weeks) way back in the spring/early summer.

I'm between a mdr and 4zip moto.. dark brown goat or black lamb. Not sure which one may benefit more from mtm, but can only afford one for now and any advice would be awesome. (note: I wear mostly v-necks, hair color is dirty blonde, 6'1" tall)

 

I've been hesitating on copping because of my summer return to the gym, and taking slight muscle growth into account could be important (is lamb more stretchable?)

That's not near enough information to determine your style. All you told us is your hair color and that you wear v-necks. You should know best which jacket style would suit you more. If you look dumb in a DR, buy a moto, if you look dumb in a moto buy a DR, if you look dumb in both, buy a bomber.

 

Also as stated many times in this thread, it's never good to size up to accommodate growth. My advice? wait a few more months if you really think you're gonna be packing on more muscle before ordering, otherwise have fun in the B&S thread.

Thank you. Not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed. Never tried an DR on before, so not really sure.. will do more research shog[1].gif

Sorry if that was a little too blunt. Yea, it would be best to try on a DR style jacket before making your decision, if you have a H&M around you, you could always check them out. They usually carry some sort of faux biker styled jacket that you could try on to see how it'll look on you.

Haha, yes I am hoping this is the case. Are you saying .5" too long is nothing to worry about? (writing this down it does seem a bit OCD). It's just it looks not quite right when unzipped. Will try and post pics later.

Yup, neurotic is about right. Looks fine in photos right? Though any pointers for improvement accepted. (rubbish photos, I know)

The sleeves look like they're a little short to me, and I think you should leave the zip a little lower, it's making the lapel stick up
post #24086 of 42002
Worry more about the fit of your pants, and hit the gym.
post #24087 of 42002
Pants are fine, don't get big and make your pants look like sausage skin. But yes, judging from the picture, the sleeves are about an inch and a half too short.
post #24088 of 42002

Don't listen to these dumbos above jabberwok, your jacket looks sick. What these no-souls refer to as 'short sleeves' is in fact the key to the TOJ wearer's most coveted achievement: non-chalance. Based on those pics, there is nothing wrong with the length either. You are rocking that thing properly.

post #24089 of 42002
Haha, thanks peeps. All duly noted and taken on board (though I'm not sure what the gym has to do with anything.. I definitely do not want bigger legs!).

Oko, they did have me worried as I had not previously noticed the shortness in the sleeves as clearly demonstrated in those pics. However, on trying the jacket on again I've realised that I'm expressing my nonchalance by having just flung the jacket on carelessly which meant the back was riding high, thus pulling the sleeve ups. Definitely liking your take on the aloof/don't care look. I would say that I would try to aspire to that, but then that would defeat the purpose. I wonder if Joey Ramone gave much thought to his sleeve length!

Thread Starter 
do try to grab up with your hands and pull each sleeve down over the shoulder. The jackets made inside out and the aren't stretched in any way when sent to you; you can get a little more length out of the sleeves (and all you need there based on the pic is like, a half inch - an inch and a half would be covering your hand basically)
