The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2005

post #30061 of 45017
People don't realize how robust this MA-1 actually is for just day-to-day wear.

There's this vibe about the MA-1, especially in the navy color that I really love. Like I'm wearing something that's been issued to me. Something a mailman or a cop would wear. I really love that. And it's very comfortable because I wasn't too fussy about the measurements and was pretty generous in sizing it and the jacket itself feels like a light down comforter.

I pre-ordered a daypack and I'm ok with calf.

I have decided to make the bottom portion in TOJ calfskin, rather than our goat. Wanted to add a bit more thickness and durability, and the calf won out. In terms of how it will look - it'll look just the same. It's black leather, and so the differences will be inconsequential to the eye.
Because we showed the first sample with a goat trimmed bottom, and the next one will be calf - just wanted people who've ordered a backpack to let us know that going to calfskin will be ok. We can only do it with one type of leather and so there is no 'choice' per se, but if there's a backlash we can stay with the goat. I'd prefer to evolve to calfskin for the thickness, though. Let us know, people.

 

I'm all for the calfskin for the thickness and durability!

 

Thanks for the update

I pre-ordered, I trust your expertise, and I favor durability in a daypack so calfskin sounds great.

Calf's better in my mind really, more durability=longer life

I also got asked by someone if my jacket was real leather after she touched it.

 

Another one I get is people who keep asking if my jacket is new.

calf is fine (but goat sounded interesting)
