I can fit a hoodie under it but it still fits well with just a t-shirt. I went today to check out some baller jackets (Balmain, Rick, Saint Laurent, Margiela), and I gotta say, all of those lamb leathers felt disappointingly thin compared to the toj lamb. Not to mention the price, $5000 for a jacket is ridonk

some crappy pics:




slightly murdered out




zipper pron


We delivered one of these in the same configuration to pinedust a few weeks ago, it's a really good combo. Been loving the way the silver zips finish off black and the rest of the colors as well. Somehow, as a piece, it's pretty far evolved from the very first original Moto sample (which aeglus eventually bought and wore) and yet at the same time, it's not - back to the black lamb 4-zip Moto with silver zippers formula.

Kinda want a black calf new.DR to go with my murdered out black lamb AMDR. Peacoat when fall rolls around again/it's done being tweaked and possibly dat bag.

It should be officially established that silver zips are superior.

You called?

there is something to be said for the more subdued look of gunmetal (like, when i wear it to the office). i think the silver gives the jacket an extra "fuck y'all" element where it takes the relatively straightforward look of the moto to the next level. it took me a while to warm up to it, but maybe that always happens with a new statement piece. like, when i took it out of the package, i wondered for a second how i was gonna pull it off. now, i want it surgically welded to my body. while i'm at it, might as well get "BAMF" tattooed to my forehead. </musings>. so yeah, go silver.

So now that I've had the pleasure of kicking it in a used black DR for a while, I can't freaking wait for my first actual ToJ purchase. I imagine it'll be a while from now, but nonetheless I'm looking forward to the painstaking and anxiety-fraught process of doing measurements, picking out a style, and then not going insane during the wait.

Drew I remember you telling me about the "leather super hero effect" you managed to pull off with the moto. Could you elaborate a bit on that? All the chicks I meet keep asking if I've been working out and it definitely seems like I've got broader shoulders

i remember reading about this, wonder if quilting exaggerates the effect further
