The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1747

I think it could be nice if actually buttoned up all the way as well. Not sure.

someone should definitely try the sky blue. That was my original order, and I changed it at the last second. I still think it'd look awesome.

I think I've also seen it on an Undercover tailored jacket, and possibly another Japanese brand. I think it helps to balance the stuffiness of a tailored long coat.

Yea that's right. But I don't think the puffer looked that great...Maybe more of a thin diamond quilt made of less sheeny synthetic material, and one that was less visible when the coat was buttoned...

Also, leather under the collar, and perhaps along the pockets would look amazing...

 I could do that camel justice.

I actually do not mind the pockets on the TOJ chesterfield, and any more pockets would make it too formal. The 3 button front is actually something I would not mind as well since I rarely find the need to button up coats and tend to layer appropriately for heat insulation in the cold. Forget the shawl collar.
As I said this looks pretty rad

Sleeve flare

And this was the coat I was trying to incorporate but I figure the two are too different

I think the biggest change would be fabric choice as seeing this photo makes me wonder how well it actually drapes. Seems like the coat works for slim builds rather than fuller body types, and with the JC and no customization I wonder how accommodations can be made. (I realize the denim + Clarks and plaid shirt maybe throwing the fit off (5))

main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=3690&g2_serialNumber=3
I think the camel coat fits quite well and curious how it has aged; etc.

All this talk has really got me excited about the ToJ---->JC transition, I really hope to start filling my wardrobe with some of the brilliance I'm sure will come.

Gonna actually have a real job with real pay soon, will be nice

Somebody got this and never posted pics back, but it was awesome: (think white tee, raw jeans)

What's coco doing back there?
post #26198 of 44289
That looks nice, what do you think about that dark red T1?
post #26199 of 44289
Medium whiskey moto ordered before the price increase. How much of a price increase should be expect for the new leathers?

I prefer blue and earth tone suedes, but it depends on your complexion/swagger level I guess. That blue pictured would be easy for anyone to pull off.

Someone quickly describe to me the differences between goat and lamb, and why I should get each. Also, why silver one ways instead of gunmetal two ways! I gotta make it before the New Years price hike!! (For mdr)
post #26202 of 44289
So how much will the jackets rise in price come 2013? $25? $50?
post #26203 of 44289
JC is on my very limited SW&D kop list for 2013. Saving toward a JLC MUT Moon Phase. nod[1].gif

PS Drew, my female friends are still in favor of the quilting being reduced down the sleeve. Also inquiries regarding the wool MA-1 for women.

PPS I'll pour out a *flute of Grande Dame for you.

Goat = soft, textured all over, slightly water resistant
Lamb = insanely soft, usually smooth (with some natural graining here and there) and not as water resistant. The lamb, though, is the one that people put their hands on and can't get enough of. I think as most can attest to here, the TOJ lamb will make you new friends, whether you want it to, or not.

Zippers: prefer the look of the silver, and the one-way operation is lighter and smoother than the two-way antiques. I just prefer them a whole lot more. It's worth considering what color leather you want first though, and then deciding on the zipper color.

We haven't set it in stone yet, but me and Charly were doing numbers and it's somewhere between those two figures. We haven't figured in a foreign exchange loss rate yet, so still subject to change.

might be worth looking into, though we did reduce the length of the quilt down the arm by 1" on the 2nd sample... didn't mention that as it mostly looked the same but the one inch adjusted it out of interfering with the elbow. That's all that was needed there. Because of the way the quilt is patched on the side, I don't want to cut the quilting too short, as I fear a football-padding look on the shoulder if I were to just cut it off way up the upper arm.
