Thanks for the thumbs, guys. blush.gif

I may have said this before, but anyone thinking about getting a whiskey calf jacket should go with the silver hardware. It makes a huge difference.

They're CPs, although I forget the exact model name. Officer Training? Officer Combat? Officer Gentleman?

No, but I'm thinking about picking one up before the cut-off (gunmetal hardware, though, not black). I kept hoping that the scalloped hem would magically become available again, but I think I'm coming to accept the idea that it'll have to be the banded-hem model.

I got the same combo, hoping one of them ship out next week.

Well godammit, I was doing really well with thinking my fit was great but seeing Notwithit's CM fit makes me realize that my CM is probably an inch too long. I think what happened is I sized the length with jeans that I hadn't soaked yet. After soaking I have to push the jacket up a bit to get my hands into my jean pockets, heh.

The pebbly texture is nice, reminds me of shrunken lamb which I also like.

Haven't seen the goat in person, but I think I'd only use it for the bomber (and only because calf's not available). There are some pictures in the toj gallery of a dark brown goat moto, though. Looks like it drapes the same as lamb, but the texture looks matte.

this^+texture = awesome moto, duh

I think motos are boring, never seen the appeal; at least a bit of texture would add some visual interest.

Lamb starts off very glossy but turns matte with wear. The goat maintains a decent level of sheen over time. It's also lighter and less insulating than lamb and can be worn in hotter or more humid conditions. I like it on my bomber but it would be great on a rider for late spring / early fall.

So how do you track the plane your jacket is on?

I would probably read this if it was made into a book.

Can't wait to tell potential inquirers "It's ToJ, designed by a possibly alcoholic epicurean blasian onetime aspiring Korean taco truck driver. Bug him a lot about zipper selection, varsities, and custom alterations for special treatment."

 

Blasian is a good addition to the saga.

In the Book of Jawnz, there are many arcs. Vickt has yet to make it to the Woodyear sidestory where our hero takes on the vile villain and emerges victorious. This was all many moons B.J.C. (before John Coppidge).

I wore it today. Stellar jacket. I'm probably going to wear it tomorrow, too. I'll try to take a picture.

Use the flight number on a site like http://flightaware.com/live/ or http://www.flightradar24.com/
