The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2029

post #30421 of 42695
Drew brought up a good point that I forgot to mention in my post, which is that the calf suede is really heavy. It's pretty cool because it drapes like thick calf leather but has the soft nappy texture of suede. I've never handled the lamb suede used in other TOJ jackets, but this calf suede has a really unique look and is nothing at all like other sued jackets I've owned.

The way TWorksheets is standing is pushing his hips forward, the camera position is very low and the wide lens is making his hip area look bigger than it should in relation to his shoulders and legs. I have little doubt that if we could see him from a more eye-level POV, with better posture, the fit of the jacket wouldn't be attracting nearly as much criticism.

 

Add to that the points made above about the natural profile of the jacket, the weight of the calf suede and the fact that it's brand new.

Just bought this one from pat pearson and he suggested I post a fit pic. Couldn't be happier with it. Now l'm hooked and want a TOJ0 anniversary.

Those look like Acne long johns, though I could be mistaken.

I bought them just a while ago when they had the extra 30% off sale and was actually trying them on deciding whether to keep or not. I think I will hold on to them.

How'd you size on them? I bought some sweatshorts from CM a while ago and had to size down. With 32" waist at the time even S stretched out to be huge.

I'm naturally a 30 waist, but I size down in some brand to 29 for the legs. These are an XS. Club Monaco pants are always huge. But this is all unrelated to TOJ...

Just got my CM and I'm kinda disappointed. Do the armholes get looser over time? Mine is practically riding on my arm pits.
post #30431 of 42695
They're not that high from a fashion standpoint... but compared to mall brand stuff it might take some getting used to.
post #30432 of 42695
Post a picture and we'll let you know whether or not your disappointment is warranted.
post #30433 of 42695
I guess I have to get used to it.

Thought I'd post a set of evo pics on my brown lamb CM.

 

Had it for a little over a year now I think. Living in Texas I was only able to wear it from like late October until early April or so, though we've had a couple of cold fronts recently that have put us back down in the 50s.

 

Without further ado:

 

 

 

Lots of good accordions in the arms. Not sure if you can see it in this photo but there is a good bit of rubbing around the pockets and on the banded hem on the sides. I'm not really able to tell if any of that is from my messenger bag (which rubs right on that part of my jacket), but I kinda like the wear. Might take more close up pictures of the wear spots later just so people get an idea of what it looks like on the brown leather, but it basically turns it into a kind of matte light brown color.

For some reason the collar has started to float up a little bit, which is odd (especially on my right side).

 

I also have worried a bit about the length. I sized it just to the bottom of my belt but might have gone too long. I've also probably gotten skinnier since I bought it, actually. Oh well.

I kinda like how the length makes it look in the back, though. It sits on my hips a bit.

Since the cuffs have been something people have talked about, this is mine unzipped.

And with the cuffs zipped. I've got a very slim watch on (one of the Seiko 5 SNK80x models) but it's quite snug.

 

Edit: Ugh, thought those pics would come out a lot bigger. Replaced with larger versions.

It looks great. The fact that it's brown makes the extra length (if you could even call it that) not really matter.
