The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 1871

Don't even know why prices are even being mentioned. How many clothing brands/designers do you know of that have kept the same prices or charged less throughout the years since they started?]

Any photoshop pros wanna mock up the navy/tan and navy/grey?  Seem to be the most interesting new colorways available.  I can't decide between the all black (which I've always wanted) or one of those, personally.  Difficult to tell without seeing a picture

haha fuck that keep that waist narrow brother

i'm probably on the wrong forum to say this but physical aesthetics > clothing aesthetics, always

but both is best

and more advice: always size up and get at most slim fit in the shoulders - it's not worth having it fit in the torso just to be skin tight and unwearable on the upper block, you will enjoy your clothes much more if they are comfortable. leave the all slim look to the skinny guys here.

haha that dude with the massive drop should just live in stretch cotton, load up on the test tren and dbol and become arnold mode.

It's pretty hard to find business clothes when you start getting > 10" drops. I cut back on lifting to make it easier to buy clothes/make suits not look comical. shog[1].gif

I agree to extent too. But ideal physical aesthetics is different for everyone. For me, a thick strong looks the best rather than a dainty waist - think Captain Kirk. But that's just me because thick cores are usually associated with strength while small waists are usually associated with just looks.





Well anyways, more TOJ talk. Less physique talk. Take that here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/156289/random-health-and-exercise-thoughts/25980_30#post_6168603

Surprisingly, your data points (At an estimated 37, 20, 13) fit almost perfectly into a nice inverse power equation:

 

y=37.4x^(-0.945)

r^2=.9976

 

By this estimate (and rounding down a bit) you'll be able to get your next TOJ piece in 10 emails! Getting down to one email will take you 37 jackets, and for Charly to telepathically place your order you'll need to buy 97. That first goal seems pretty reasonable, though.

Yeah uh, I do not want to look like that.
post #28061 of 40757

Don't worry, you guys never will.  The dedication it takes to look anything remotely close to that is pretty insane.  Anyways, just sold off my A2, it's pretty bittersweet but I think I'm more of a black leather guy right now (waiting on MA-1) and would rather focus on wearing in one leather in for now.  ToJ0 2013 pricing is a pleasant surprise.

Factors ignored:

- that was the 2009 price vs the 2013 price
- I knew hardly anything back then and underpriced, and now I know a little more about making clothes and what I need to charge so I can continue to make clothes
- there was exactly one person at TOJ at the 2009 price, now there's four people
- the material content has always gone upwards, and will continue to do so. Go into MC and ask how much 100% virgin wool for a topcoat is per yard, and get back to me. I guarantee you'll be surprised. Every single material, including the snaps, is improved over the predecessors.
