I only recently heard of T0J and wanted to know if anyone had anly luck getting something like this. I know many are partial to the full leathers, but I went through the thread and see I'm not alone in the liking of the blacked out varsity so figured it's worth asking...

toj bro, not t0j

I get that he's attempting to expand to a more high highfalutin customer base and I think that is great, but I hope the helmet isn't the only bag model he offers. If he offers it alongside a daypack and duffle or weekender...hoooo boy, is he gonna get a lot of glorious business.

After seeing that purple suede daypack that baconzilla has, there really is no backpack alternative for me, not even Visvim

sounds like you a bitch

Lol. Nah, I bought the jacket b/c it looked cool and the TOJ (a less expensive and also cool alternative) was unavailable for purchase. I think others have mentioned before, a ton of streetwear inspired brands are making these. I just happened to like these two options the best. I think compared to the TOJ the leather on the SL is probably less thick, it is ridiculously soft and I imagine the one on the TOJ will be very thick and feel more durable but want to see for myself I guess. If anyone is selling their TOJ1 or knows if TOJ is open to producing it (since they do MTM anyway and probably have the old pattern) please do let me know, I'd be interested in trying one

Duh, but as long as I don't do the fairy boy bag curl going up stairs, other people might not catch on.

Unglazed goat.

This does not hang low, look how short the handles are. It's not a tote with a long ass strap. You'd have to be like 4 ft tall for it to be 'bumping' into the steps.

It's not hard to see. Look at TOJ jackets and look at this bag; you can see where they originated, from early to mid 20th century military or rider inspired designs, and how well they would compliment each other. This bag is for the guy who needs something to carry around their stuff in all day whether it be from school/work to play and transition perfectly. For someone who doesn't want a backpack or daypack because it might not fit his look, because a briefcase would be too serious, doesn't want a messenger bag because every other guy around him is carrying one, a duffle too gym-like, and doesn't want to carry a canvas tote because he doesn't want to look like all the other grocery-shopping Americana Bros/L.L. Bean Husbands. This bag fits that niche. This bag would look fucking awesome with your A-1, A-2, MA-1 or CWU-45/P.

I've had this Eastpak suede backpack for over half a year now, used it every day and love it. While the construction is decent, the fabrics and zippers leave a lot to be desired.

 

 

Would be great to have an upgraded luxe version from TOJ to complement it. Thinking of navy or a dark grey with silver zips to really elevate it past this Eastpak.

Seriously.

I hate wearing a backpack over my A-2. I would much rather carry something like this. I'm sold.

Hey guys, thinking about ordering my first MTM TOJB (TOJ (Temple of Jawnz) Bag)

 


 

Can someone post fit pics and the overall height, width, and circumference of their back? Also should I get black or brown? Lamb or calf? Can I get one with the double-zippers? 

post #28258 of 42232
The lamb comment was directed at people talking about wanting it in lamb (although they were probably trolling).

Adding on to what Willy says, most people don't wear backpacks after college on a daily basis... shoulder straps often don't play well with nice clothes also (MC or SW&D).

^ but I'm also bulking so I want to gain more muscle so should I tell charly this? Gun metal or silver zips?

That helmet bag actually looks like a great s/s weekender, as well as a daily commuter. Granted, it's hard to tell the dimensions from the photo, but if it's helmet bag sized, I'm guessing you could get a pair of shoes and a couple of shirts in there without a problem,along with an ipad/whatever. Suede t1, tee, jeans, sidezips, helmet bag, weekend getaway with a pretty girl....

I'm a little surprised that it doesn't appear to have clasps for a detachable shoulder strap, which I thought was pretty standard for that style. Drew, is that something that we just can't see/is going to be added, or is it a pure tote-style?

I'll be very interested to see prices. That's a great-looking bag.
