I know you said you were thinking about some designs for warmer weather a while back Drew, have you come up with anything yet or am I gonna have to cop a T1 for the summer?

Drew, sorry if you have been asked this before, but what's with the price premium on goat? Not to say it's bad, but goat is usually derided as an inferior material I think, so I'm curious if your goat is really special or something.

(That sounds wrong.)

Is it more expensive to work with since it is a bit tougher? It is not as tough as calf...but the bomber people don't do calf.

I'm on the fence between a toj1 or baseball -- I think the baseball is something special. I'm just worried I'm not careful enough for it.

I have never cleaned mine. There's some dirt on it, but not much considering how much I wear it. Looks better dirty anyway.

Here's a photo of my SO's rider. It's possibly the nicest TOJ I've ever seen, and we both love it. Well, I might love it even more than she does. It is insanely nice, and, as you can see, Drew did an absolutely incredible job sizing it, once I gave him the proper measurements (he had to correct my shoulder assessment). Interestingly, it has the most supple leather of any of the three black lamb jackets I've handled, and it drapes beautifully. Pretty much goes with anything, including over dresses and more stylized stuff like that. Her only comment about the release of the new women's BCDR was basically "Who cares," which is because this is pretty much the end-all, be-all of black leather riders. If this one is any indication, I'm sure the new jackets will be stellar.

Synth, how's the T1 holding up so far?  Since you've handled pretty much every material Drew offers, how do you think the lamb suede will age/hold up long term?
 

post #26532 of 41467
So far, I see no reason that it won't last just as long as anything else. That said, I have barely worn it (too cold and rainy), so I will defer to other members who might have used theirs more (GDL must have something in lamb suede in that arsenal of his). I don't get in knife fights or anything, though.

Well you clearly don't hang out with sinnedk enough during his letter-opening parties.

Just wanted to post a big thanks to Drew and everyone else at TOJ/JC for this jacket. It really is an amazing piece and finally seeing a TOJ in person really clarifies why everyone raves about them here. The leather feels great and the fit is spot on, just what I wanted. Looks good with a tee but enough room for a sweater if I want it. Have gotten tons of compliments on how nice it looks and feels. I know some had reservations about how cream leather goes with the MDR but I really love it and think I'll be wearing it a loooong time. Thanks so much guys, just a stellar job and absolutely worth the wait icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

...now the countdown until snowman gets his cream TOJ in and absolutely demolishes my fits biggrin.gif

The white part of the ribbing will get dirty.

 

Suede part isn't dirty for me and I've worn it 15-18 times already
