Also..every fit pic ever taken in a mirror is a lie.

 Low angle, but still.  The epaulets on the A2 just don't seem to mesh well with my sloped shoulders...tight on traps but still look droopy.  You can't see in the pic but the section behind the epaulets is raised/tight on my traps which is probably why it feels 'small' when it's really not...that and dem armholes.  But yea my shoulders/pits are not so happy with the tightness going on here.


Bonus stinky ToJ0 AE (48 w/ 50 lengths) pic that I still need to get a refund on...shame because I like the fit w/o layers - arms a little long but whatever.  Super comfy doe




Yea I'm not sure what it is about mine either but it is a little tight on the shoulder/pit area. I was thinking the armholes might be a little high also. I was gonna ask Charly on my next order if theres anything that can be done. I think the shoulder width is good. Maybe its the p2p measurement is a bit too small.

I got the calf so I'm hoping it will stretch a little.

Get all that MTM sizing OCD out your system while you can.

I'm fucking obsessed with my fishtail. I don't want to take it off anywhere, even in my 73 degree condo.

Can someone please point me to the current offerings, material types, prices, etc? The unofficial site seems to not have photos working so I'm not sure if it's up to date and the OP is old so I don't know if that's current.

Just got my A2, quick try on but nobody to take photos of me, fit seems good except for biceps area, how much stretch is there going to be? Shoulders fit fine into jacket but it's a bit difficult to bend my arms as the biceps are almost painted on

Biceps were a little tight on mine as well, but after wearing it in a bit and bending my arms up and down it's loosened up a bit.

TOJ A2 Bomber - Black Lamb Review

As I write this, I am wearing my new leather bomber, lamb, that just came through the post this morning after being shipped last Friday from South Korea. I have to say, exceptional shipping time as well as no customs hassle.

When I got the silver-grey bag, I immediately went took my knife and opened it up. The smell of leather slapped me in the face and as I regained consciousness I stuffed my hand in the bag and felt butter.

Once I took it out, it looked small.. perhaps not having a TOJ piece for months will do that. I originally bought the TOJ 2010 Bomber (second picture below with red scarf) in calf and I loved it.. but I found calf to be very restricting, I couldn't lift my hands over my head or layer that much.

Upon feeling the buttery lamb I thought to myself that this does not feel as durable as calf, but I reminded myself that TOJ only use the best materials and I am sure it will hold up well in the Montreal weather of snow, sleet and rain.

I am extremely happy with this piece, it drapes so much better than my old calf bomber. It isn't too tight around the armpits or around the chest and shoulders. It is a perfect fit I find. I look forward to breaking it in.

For lots of pictures, open the spoiler. I apolgize for the inverted images; my imgur is giving me a hard time.

These go quick on eBay and B&S? Just wondering because I'm worried if I get one that I'll grow out of it and these seem pretty custom fitted.

That's what I figured, will probably add a little more room on next jacket but will see

You look like a bigger guy, but you can try wearing lower rise jeans to alleviate the length problem.

Yea...do you have really sloped shoulders + a big chest back relative to your frame?  I think that might be why, I do better with unstructured/softer shoulder jackets (like the varsity).  Yours will probably soften/change a good amt though since it's calf
