The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2046

post #30676 of 45104
I got quoted 6-8 weeks for the wool MA-1 but the first batch took about 3-4 months (I think orders opened early January and people started getting them inid April?). That could just be because production started late for the first batch tho.

I'm hopeful for 6-8 weeks but wouldn't mind the 3-4 months.

I ordered my wool MA-1 last month and got quoted "around 6-8 weeks"

post #30678 of 45104
I paid for the MA-1 2/5 and finalized the order when the size chart was released on 2/27. It has been about 12 weeks since the orders were finalized, so I'm assuming they're still working on preorders.
post #30679 of 45104
Ma-1 orders opened up way before the sizing charts came out as well.

Regardless, it's worth the wait and there's no question about that. No real reason to worry about the wait time.

Is it still possible to get the TOJ1 2011 or is it gone forever?

No longer in production, you can buy used ones from various places.

Some friendly advice: move the link to your actual signature (you can do this by going to your profile and selecting edit signature) instead of putting it in the body of your posts. I'm pretty sure it's against the forum rules to do otherwise, and it could result in banning and/or fines.

Look at his other posts, he's just spamming.

 

Anyway, three terribly shitty photos of my ma-1 for all your viewing pleasure, I seriously need to move somewhere with a little more space.

Looks good. I'm glad I added like 2 more inches to my sleeve length cuz it does look a lot better with stacks imo.

I'm conflicted, A2 Bomber in black lamb or unglazed goat for next fall/winter?

Looking at some of the search results, Drew doesn't seem to like the name tag on goat (texture difference?), but I'd really like a name tag. On that note, I don't know if I'm ready for the texture of goat because it's pebbled. However goat appeals to me because of it's increased durability over lamb. I'm not concerned about rain (I use an umbrella), but I'm worried about abrasion. Also, are the bombers warm in cold weather?

Perhaps I should just grab the peacoat and an MA-1... thoughts guys?
post #30686 of 45104
Why black? If you want a darker leather, the og dark brown goat looks way more visually interesting with shearling.

I wouldn't think of abrasion resistance as a selling point. As long as you aren't neurotic, you'll never think about it after you receive your jacket. If you don't like pebble grain, pass and get lamb. Don't forget that some lamb bombers have that veiny texture like any other lamb jacket.

Bombers are as warm as any other leather. I love the A2 because of the way it keeps my neck warm in windy weather. It can be as warm as you want, as long as you layer accordingly as it gets colder.

I like black because I find it more versatile with different pants.

I'd get a black calf MDR but that would kill any possibilities of wearing an OCBD with the jacket.

I'm wondering if a name tag really does look that bad with black unglazed goat. The softness of the lamb scares me because I'm so paranoid of ripping it or something.

I'm considering the peacoat because I know it can last and it's suited towards my aesthetic.

I wear my DR with an OCBD. No problems.

Could have maybe done with an extra inch in the sleeves, but it still fits pretty perfectly.

Dude, the lamb is soft, but don't be afraid of that. Leather jackets always look a bit better once they get a bit destroyed.

I more or less only wear my MDR with button downs. If you rather want the MDR, you should just get that. IMO, the only "difficult" (i.e it's not) look to pull with that jacket I raw jeans and white tshirt. And that's only difficult when you are not in a bar environment.
