The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2038

On the one hand, I'm pretty sure I ordered silver zips, and I ended up with antiqued.

On the other hand...

nice. was the longer sleeve length intentional? I seem to remember your other TOJ having shorter sleeves.
post #30558 of 45029
Yeah, I went with longer sleeves on this one. Some (very minor) crossed wires on the sleeve measurements last time around.

Finally got around to snapping some pictures of my Oxblood Calf 3-zip MDR...ordered on 12/31/12 and was received on 4/29/13.

 

Being my first ToJ, all I can say is wow. The calf, while being incredibly thick, is surprisingly soft and quite heavy; no doubt the best leather I've ever felt. The color was not exactly what I expected, but is a beautiful deep reddish oxblood color that kind of seems to change colors and look brown in some lights. The zippers are sturdy as hell and the silver really provides a great contrast from the leather. The jacket overall really does feel like a suit of armor.

 

The fit, which I was most worried about, is perfect for a slim fit, almost too slim for my tastes. However, the calf still needs to be broken in which I'm sure will address the tightness I'm experiencing in the shoulders. Besides that, the length, sleeve length, chest, midsection, and sleeve width are all perfect, and the jacket looks and feels incredible on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most accurate picture of color^^

 

 

 

 

Thinking about ordering a suiting wool MA-1 soon if I can acquire the funds. Also, just gauging interest, If anyone is interested in the above jacket I may be willing to depart with it, as it is slightly too tight on me currently. Feel free to message me.

That Oxblood is a really nice color. More brown than I thought it would be.

It honestly really depends on the lighting..in full sunlight it's pretty red.

lol, true. I think it actually will slow down though, eventually. We had a slower order period for a couple months so the queue will kinda fast forward on it's own around now or soon. Later the bigger capacity production will also make things faster.

So are there any other available colors for the suiting wool besides charcoal, black, and navy?
