It's definitely be the last one the other ones seem to change the color more so because the sun is shinning on em so they seem lighter than I'd say indoor or even when its not bright out.

Didn't drew make a post about distancing himself from the TOJ brand as he moves into JC?

Something like this:

Long coat by chance?

This kind of talk is really unnecessary. It is a forum about clothes.

You gotta wade through thousands of posts like that before getting to the odd gem here and there (i.e. fit pics and/or walls of texts about clothes from the boss himself)

While I agree there are a lot of questions in the thread that could easily be solved by a little research and looking through galleries (cue Willy). For some strange reason, people really seem to value the advice from strangers on the internet, perhaps because from "normal" perspective, $700-$800 is really a lot of money to plunk down to someone over the internet based on a tumblr and an internet forum and it feels better to have to reassurance. I think the many "unnecessary" posts are more about mental sanity than an actual requirement of information. For those of us who are familiar with the system, it is much easier, but for new-comers (which are responsible for most of the death warranting posts), the idea and concept is likely new. TOJ makes excellent jackets and is likely the best value for a MTM leather jacket possible, but remember, not everyone is "in the loop" so to speak. When I ordered my first jacket, I sent Charly far too many e-mails changing little things and details. Firstly, because I am a little OCD and second, because it is hard to not worry about the jacket not fitting you. Charly does an excellent job with sizing and shrines should be built to that man's patience, but I am happy I made my jacket a little longer and roomier. I'm just saying, everyone asks a stupid question now and again.

If you just want to see fit pics, see Drew's pro-tip or http://toj-gallery.com/main.php.

Craving my fishtail now too, it's getting pretty damn cold outside.

Dear Drew,

I was so cold today. All I own are short jackets, and sadly, a sheepskin bomber does nothing to minimize the effects that this damp, grey, dreary November weather has on my thighs. I thought to myself while picking my way across the cobblestones, "Man, it's too bad I don't have a TOJ fishtail. Hey! Maybe I should just order one! Or a Chesterfield! Or a new TOJ N3-B! Or some other suitably louche, formal outerwear option that Drew is cooking up!" And then I remembered that if I ordered a fishtail now, I might not get it until February or March. And then I experienced a trance-like vision of navigating a Temple of Jawnz online store, selecting a jacket in my size in my preferred color that was already in stock, with standardized measurements listed right under a giant checkout button that said "KOP JAWNZ," and the subsequent orgasmic rush of two-day gratification, and I swooned in the street. Upon waking, surrounded by a crowd of awed onlookers, I felt compelled to come to you, messianic, and lay my vision at your feet so that you might make all these things into glorious reality. If you don't, I will probably waffle and waffle and waffle and then it will be February and I will own no coats at all, from the Temple or otherwise. That, or I'll buy some British heritage thing and, so doing, will bring about an apocalypse of tweed and hunter wellies in traditional British green, and the wailing of a thousand babes will usher in a new, horrific era of functional, timeless classics in quirky but presentable and always-appropriate colors like "plum," "oatmeal," and "Scottish heather."

Best Wishes, and Think of the Children,

Synthese

Ok I'm like two pages behind but regarding the two-way zips, the Vtg does great with them. Not that you can get one now AFAIK. It might even be necessary--the stiffness makes it so that riding a bike in the cold, with it zipped up, would not be possible without the bottom unzipped a few inches. I'm sure it's different with lamb tho. But the complaints about unzipping, I don't have--you just grab the zipper with your left hand and pull hard, pull up a little with your right shoulder at the same time, and it'll unzip. But again, the stiffness may make that possible.

While I'm at it I should mention I hit my vtg with obernauf's lp and now it's lightly waterproof, which is nice. But just lightly. It doesn't sink in instantly. But maaaan it got noisier for a few days. We wear headphones at work and my coworker though I was trying to get her attention, but it was just me taking my jacket off. It took a few days to quit squeaking all the time.
