The lambskin is really something special. Very soft and luxe.

However, I have to admit that out of 3 TOJ's, the olive calf is still my favorite.

Sup ladies.

I did take a front fit pic but I was slouching and looking shitty.

I'm just gonna order everything in this size from now on.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The navy under bright fluorescent bathroom lighting. Might get some kind of brush for this though, seems to attract lots of little hairs and stuff. But yeah, the herringbone weave on that wool

Just remember that there is (at least) two types of olive calf out there. 

Italian: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=13381

And the softer version: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=15382

bows and hhenry - sirs if you'd be so kind what is your shoulder and chest in the leathers and what size MA-1 did you go with - i want a similar fit - i usually go with 18" shoulders and 21.8" chest in the leathers

i ask because i can't gauge whether there is a certain degree of puff/fill that would draw out the MA-1 measurements indicated online

Would it be safe to say that the Suiting Wool MA-1 in a 46 is closer than a 48 compared to a size 48 TOJ1 2011? Can't tell based solely on measurements.
