really excited about the bcdr and the menu we are waiting for, can't picture at all what the different quiltings would look like, probably going to need to wait for fit pics on those, but all these options are awesome

I'll get some good colors up, there's like 1-2 shades of every imaginable primary and intermediate color out there. I've been thinking that maybe I should grab a Windows PC separate from my MBP and do the color menus on uncalibrated monitors, in HTML colors. What do you guys think of this idea, preferably guys with web experience?
By HTML colors, do you mean web standard colors? I would just go by what you see on your MBP. High quality IPS panels have more or less become standard. I think the main thing that would help is good photos of swatches and color corrected example photos of jackets (pulled out of the toj gallery, maybe).

suede's pretty tough to photograph though, would be pretty tough to get a real-life picture to be accurate.

The BCDR looks really nice.

 

I'm curious though if you can wear it unzipped.

post #26075 of 42694
Yeah why not?

Because the overlaying chest flap was very large and flappy on the last iteration of the bcdr.

Because the old one looked like this http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=6598. It's not cold enough to wear my jackets zipped up most of the time in LA, and I don't like how floppy the old one looked unzipped.

I'm tempted to place an order for the unquilted bcdr, but I think that people need to order the channel and single stitched diamond bcdrs before I make my decision on which I want to buy. shog[1].gif

I'm thinking about putting a new option for the CWU-45 out there - ribbed collar like the MA-1/Varsity instead of a collar. I should've done that awhile back, just been busy. redface.gif i want my second CWU with a rib collar myself. redface.gif

I think this is it.
I vaguely remember a more detailed post where he (or someone else) brought up ribbed&moto collars being preferable for dudes with shorter necks.

any jacket like this needs a bit of molding time. I found the best way was to open it so the lapels flatten and then sit it face down on the ground and walk on it barefoot. lol. It took shape after a day. You can take it easier on the jacket and it'll look better for it too. Leather has a bit of memory and needs time to work itself into position

TOJ gets a menswear feature on Tumblr. Hopefully this will help drive sales and we are all rewarded with more TOJs :)
