to me it looks quite close to ToJ 50, but I am not sure taking account for layering. What makes you think i would be swimming it a 50?

 

Measure your body, dude. And worst case scenario, if you have no jackets, go to a store, find a jacket that fits you and then take measurements from that. Charly should be able to guide you after your measurements are made.

TRUST THE PROCESS, caps lock not intended but emphasis is appropriate.

Blue/Navy Lambskin Collared Moto. The lamb on this thing is wicked soft, probably the softest leather I have ever felt.

If I may ask - are you happy with the fit?

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

Willy will be here with a few links soon
HOW TO FIND ANSWERS TO TOJ/JOHN COPPIDGE QUESTIONS YOU HAVE IN YOUR HEAD RIGHT AWAY WITHOUT SITTING AROUND WAITING OR FILLING UP THE THREAD WITH CLUTTER OR RELYING ON OTHER PEOPLE FOR HELP BECAUSE THERE IS A SEARCH FEATURE AND YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO USE IT BECAUSE IT'S NOT HARD, DAMMIT.

"leather super hero effect" eh?

What words immediately stick out from that that would help you narrow down a search and eliminate any unnecessary results?

I don't know about you, but "superhero" stood out.

So, let's scroll up to the top of the thread and what do you see on the left? A "Search This Thread" feature, right?

Right. Now click on it and this should show up:

You are searching for the word "superhero," so input it like so:

But wait, you said Drew mentioned it, correct? Well then, click on "Advanced search options" like so:

Now there's an area for you to put in Drew's username. But wait, maybe you know how to spell his username off the top of your head or maybe you forgot? IT DOESN'T MATTER because all you need are the first few letters, see?

And all the results autofill for you... look how convenient! Now click on the correct name:

Now click "SEARCH"

Wow, that was fast and precise with only one post matching what you were looking for!

Obviously, you can't see everything from this page, so click "VIEW FULL POST"

Bringing you directly to his post/your answer that you were looking for:

And it all took less than one minute! That's a shorter amount of time than it would have taken for someone to answer your question or have it completely ignored if Synthese were to post a fit pic directly after your post/question.

This goes for everyone:

post #28598 of 41466
wow. I actually...didn't know how to do that.
post #28599 of 41466
Synth, if you had posted a pic, nobody would have read Willy's post. You're a good man.

Yeah, but I have a few TOJ leathers now, so I have a pretty good idea of things at this point. If you are concerned about your order fitting, my standard advice is to trust Charly and don't tell him you want it real tight (if you are familiar with the "ratios", go with 1.1). If you are on the edge between two things, go larger. TOJ house cuts are slim as is. You may wish to take what I say with a grain of salt though, I am not as big a stickler for fit as some of the other guys.

Willy that post is going to be largely pointless if it's not stapled to the front page and on every one of your forum signatures. Also, pin it to the tumblr as well.
post #28602 of 41466
willy you are absurdly helpful but the snark is not necessary. Don't cultivate an environment where people are afraid of asking questions for fear of being berated.

Encourage noobs. They just want to be swagged out =(
post #28603 of 41466
It's also forum etiquette (not just here) to perform basic searches and read stickies before posting.

I already have a dark whisky calf CM, I think I d like something red and something in that unglazed grey goat, probably a moto or CM

Silver or gunmetal for an unglazed med dark grey goat 4zip moto? Would appreciate the house advice...

Thanks - I'm in for two myself. My moto is goat and fits quite slim but not unwearablely so. I have a couple of older, non-ToJ leather jackets that fit in the shoulder but make me look 60 lbs heavier and I don't wear them as a result.

Next up will likley be T1/T3
