Build the hype up enough, people'll pay.

Right because no one pays over retail for brands like Supreme and BAPE during it's glory days....

Why wouldn't people pay over retail for brand new items that will no longer be in production? I'm not sure you understand how capitalism works my friend.

Would be a rather large investment with limited upside based on the assumption that Drew will never make clothes again

While I really like my olive calfskin, I am not convinced it is going to outlive my brown lambskin.

it's pretty fucking tasteless to discuss flipping clothes in a guys thread who was all about quality at an affordable price point

1. the CM: the cm is not gonna be all a toj could be for you unless you look like notwithit--what's the brad quote? "this looks good because you have a perfect body"? I just don't think the design on it makes that much sense for anybody's aesthetic. get an mdr or a 2010. but, i guess, take this with a grain of salt: i also don't like the normal moto, though for different reasons.

2. the calf vs lamb debate: i have a brown calf bomber from when that was possible, years ago, and a black lamb dr 2010. the calf will never feel or drape like the lamb. the calf is a little warmer and feels quite firm, whereas the lamb is easier to wear--lighter, stretchier--and the handfeel is amazing.

I psychologically feel better in the lamb than in the calf. I think it's a comfort thing.

Best of luck in the new venture, Drew. Wish I hadn't slept on that A1 and I hope the chance for me to buy one somehow rolls around again.

I've been working in restaurants for a long time and one of the most important things I've learned is that the details are what makes the difference. I'm sure if you can apply the same meticulous detail standards to your restaurant as you did on your clothes, you'll be successful.

Alternatively, if this wasn't happening on the other side of the world I'd offer to work for you as your sommelier and accept payment in jackets. Dream job.

my CM was the only TOJ that I sold that I wished I had back.  confused.gif

No, end results will never be similar. One is simply harder than the other.

I've actually been thinking about ToJ shuttering their "doors" quite a bit since I read the announcement, and I suppose the big disappointment for me comes down to the fact that this company gave customers all over the world such pleasure from buying such a wonderful product at the right price, whereas a restaurant in Seoul, while it will no doubt be stellar (I have faith in Drew-San), can at best serve merely a fraction of world customers that ToJ served.

Really hope Drew comes back to it again one day, there's honestly no replacement for ToJ cry.gif

Agreed. Flippers (vinyl, concert/sports tickets) are one of the lowest life forms on the planet Earth.

Then why don't you cop a full size run and tell us how that turns out a few months down the line

I had a feeling that you would. That CM had me thinking about bottle green riders for the longest time... I might still actually make a second order near cut-off for a bottle green 2013 DR if the color's still available. shog[1].gif
