I'll lay all the speculation to rest.

It is a lambskin MA-1 that I made for myself.

It is not offered by TOJ at the moment.

I'm glad some of you like the jacket.

I just don't get why toasty is all menstrual about it, I mean if you work at kfc you can get fried biscuits stuffed with honey dipped triple crispy tenders, otherwise you can just dream..

Okay I just need to know if anyone here has the TOJ zip wallet and is willing to part ways with it.

 

Thanks!

So IT CAME! I was super bummed, because I was taking a final, came home, tracking said it had just arrived to local PO, but my mail had already come today. Lo and behold, I get a knock 30 minutes after being home, it was being hand delivered to me. Whatever shipping method you guys use, is awesome. Fit pics:

Hopefully I can get some non-bathroom shots of it out in the wild...potentially over the holidays.

 

Short impressions:

 

-The lamb feel is like nothing I could have dreamed of. I felt some leather jackets yesterday, just to try and get an impression, but it's SO MUCH SOFTER. It's incredible. Makes me want to order another before MTM ends.

 

- Was a bit worried about shoulder sizing, but I really just wanted to trust Charly, and of course it's great. Waist might be the only thing that's a bit tight, but it's nothing crazy tight (and honestly I need to cut some winter weight). THANKS CHARLY!

 

It's just an amazing jacket over all, and I completely worth the wait. ToJ/JC, I will forever be a fanboy, and will be copping more Jawnz from you shortly.

 

Edit: For all the tote whiners -- it came with a tote.

Edit edit: I'm excited to see yours smash...

Headed up to Boston this weekend; I can finally stun my QDR for the first time this year as I live in Florida and it's 74 and humid AF year round...

Dellath and I both have used Obernauf's HDLP on our VTGs, but it's a VTG-only deal. Calf doesn't need it since calf is already basically waterproof. I did Lexol my other jacket, which is calf, a few weeks back. It did feel a little less dry afterwards, but I might Lexol it again tonight.

VTG update while I'm here: it's softened up nicely. One initial rubdown with moisturizer early on, one application of Obernauf's HDLP, and a lot of wear. Not getting noticeably tanner than the last pics I posted, but it's so gradual, and I don't get outside during the daytime enough.

The last thing to break in seems to be the cuffs, which are still awkward when I'm trying to do stuff with my hands. Because the cuffs are an inside and outside leather surface, folded over at the seams, they're 4 times as thick as the rest of the jacket at the opening.



and then there's this part, where the button flap is sewn into there, making it six layers

Charly likes me, he said I was a pleasure to deal with biggrin.gif

is asking for a rib collar cwu45 to be made with digi camo lining considered heresy? I suppose it wouldn't do justice to how soft the leather is...dont get all "youre a simpleton"im just thinking into the key board.

 

bobsagets excited face is an extra nudge but i might set aside my wanting a cwu45 for a lamb ma1. I will need a black leather...
