When I do personal delivery on a piece and bless it with the holy water (craft beer) then it is destined to moisten every vagina within smelling/touching radius.

Frankly, a stock 48 with a 51 chest/shoulders would be perfect, but no tweaks allowed frown.gif
I've seen fits of the 52 on guys who are not as skinny as me, and they looked blousy. My waist/hips is not even that small by SF standards (30), but i have a very small midsection




That's the 50 on you, right? I'm 6'0, 185 lbs, 40 chest, 34 waist, and I ordered a 52 in the TOJ1.

With your chest measurements, 52 should do you OK? Although I don't think the 50 looks awful on you, just a bit snug in the torso, but it probably looks dope unbuttoned.

I dunno if he's hulking out or flexing in the back shot, but something looks odd about the shoulders.  

post #27800 of 41237
The shoulders are tiny, and I'm just standing normally in that shot! I have no doubt the 52 will fit in the top block, but I'm worried it will drape funny in the mid/waist

So that pic is you wearing the 50? It doesn't look comically small

now that we have glazed and unglazed goat, can you add glazed lamb with a side of fries and truffle oil.  

post #27803 of 41237
imo your CM looks like it fits well, t3hg0suazn. I think it would look better with black jeans and luxe sneakers/boots though.

My fellow TOJ aficionados, I am trying to decide between brown lamb or goat (glazed or unglazed) for an A2 Bomber. Any thoughts/advice re: leather choice?

I did some research and Drew has previously mentioned that "lamb is soft, almost oily sometimes, with a 'cool' hand feel that is meaty - and then goat has a very cold (probably one of the coldest of them all) handfeel due to the pebble grain and it feels more lacquered and slick. Also, a bit tougher feeling, but when made up, it's still a soft jacket." Found this very helpful but both sound awesome, so didn't help the decision-making process.

Would welcome advice or rationale regarding choosing between lamb and goat for my bomber. Thanks in advance.

Lamb has a smooth texture and is very tender, goat has a pebbled texture and is a bit tougher. That's all there is to it.

Drew, if you only had one leather jacket and it was going to be the A-2 bomber, would you go with brown goat or lamb?

Lately it doesn't really matter to me, the materials are all pretty good. If I could choose only one, I'd get a black DR variant in lamb. If I had to get a Bomber, the answer would've been brown lamb, but we now have a bunch of colored unglazed goat (colors aren't corrected here yet) - there's a medium-dark grey goat that is fantastic and would work across the board on basically every model, likewise a medium olive unglazed goat that would also be great.

and in other news: TOJ0 reboot coming out very soon. I decided against making it silk, because it was thin, amongst other reasons - and went for cleaning up the classic formula, and improved the materials as much as I could - 100% Japanese fine coat wool in the body, NZ lambskin (of course) sleeves, wool blend ribbing, and then Bemberg lining. Materials-wise, it's now all of the best that we have, which is kinda fitting since it's the original model and deserves to get brought back to the front. So we'll put that up soon.

Any idea on price? Hate to be *that guy*, I just want to know if I should wait to order one instead of buying this TOJ someone is selling me 2nd hand.
