Damn, that Navy/Black TOJ0 looks amazing.  I might see if I can change mine from the Black/Black.

Yes, we know, and you don't have to constantly remind us.

I've got a Sherwood calf BCDR in the queue and I'm strongly reconsidering a lighter lamb suede instead. But again, gonna see how this jacket breaks in before bothering Charly with order changes.

I wanted to order a BCDR in the lamb suede, but Charly highly recommended against it -- said it would be too loose and floppy for the jacket style; so I switched to calf suede. I have both lamb and calf regular leather jackets, and there is a big difference between them.

I ended going with goat, and I still would love to try the lamb and calf. I doubt I'll have a chance too, unless B/S is nice to me in a few months. The reason I didn't go with the lamb is that though it sounds amazing, I'm less a fan of the striations that develop as it ages. Also, I for rider jackets, I will be wearing it the collar up often, and it seems that the lamb loses that ability within a couple years. That's just my thought process though. If I had another couple months, I'd be grabbing either the CWU or A2 in black lamb.

Trust Charly. Lamb suede in general is a super lightweight material, definitely no good for a BCDR.

dammit, I had JUST accepted that I would just wait 4 months and get a toj of some sort off B&S, and then you post this gorgeous pic butbut.gif

post #32140 of 41467
Drew can we get some more pics of the navy/black TOJ0 or any other current TOJ0s?
post #32141 of 41467
Ugh that picture settles it, I am going to order a Navy/Black in the next couple days after mulling over a black/sand or navy/sand for the past 2 weeks.
post #32142 of 41467

Yeah, I just sent an email about changing my black/black to navy/black based off that picture.  I feel like navy will also be easier to wear with my wardrobe. happy.gif

 

Sticking with the black/black.

What do you guys think of an unglazed goat black CWU-45 or an olive lamb CWU-45?

 

I know black lamb is the best but I don't have too much black in my style/wardrobe and the black unglazed goat seems to have visual interest at least. Although I think the olive lamb can potentially look amazing - I don't really like the A-2 as much from the pictures I've seen from the gallery.

post #32144 of 41467
? Black goes with everything

Olive is too much of a deviation IMO, go with a moto or CM if you want colour.
post #32145 of 41467

Hmm, well I figured Olive Lamb would be a nice alternative to a Brown CWU-45 - brown in some lighting and greener in others; if I'm not mistaken it would be a slightly darker variation of the Olive Italian Calfskin. I already have a brown moto (from another brand, not ToJ unfortunately) and I feel that the CWU-45 could be a bit dressier If I needed it to be and still play nice with some dark denim since I ordered a Diesel Blue Suede BCDR. I don't like black and denim combo as much unless if it was a DR.
