Where do you even get this shit.

I was merely referring to the extra set of pockets and the leather trimmed collar, which, in fact, makes this particular Burberry peacoat look a lot like the TOJ Admiral coat.

Where do you people get all your butthurt and need-to-state-the-obvious? :-/

Here's a Paul Smith peacoat I bought from A/W 11/12. Notice how it has 4 pockets, and would have been designed at least a year in advance (2010).

 

 

 

 

ToJ's Admiral Peacoat is beautiful, but it's a peacoat, it's all been done before.

Those pockets have little in common with the Admirals coat. Again, you're kind of stading the obvious in a rather butthurt manner. Please disregard my post. I thought it would be interesting to people, but obviously it only worked to induce annoyance here.

Is it possible to be too old to wear the varsity?

Piling on in this thread is expected.  When Drew pointed out the similarities between his suiting wool MA-1 and APC's, everyone nodded and agreed.

It's $590USD on the site, and it was like $800 out here in Korea. I showed mine in November of last year and the Louis W one came out in January 2013. I'll chalk it up to coincidence (notwithstanding the fact that the whole Louis W line has looked like a condensed TOJ line since it came out) , but fuck. I looked it over and the construction is about like mine minus some details, and the fabric is pretty much identical. The lining in ours is puffed though, and that APC one is not , and I prefer ours aesthetically. I say that as a fan of a lot of APC stuff, I just think bows1 pics demonstrate how the TOJ is killing it with the concept.
The fact that dudes in WAYWT were talking about Ervell and shit, while the real trenches are over here; that says a lot, IMO.

You'll also note that Drew himself said it was probably a coincidence.

You picked a very traditional style of jacket from a company that has been around for over a hundred years as someone that may be drawing influence from TOJ.

Your example was bad. No butts were hurt in the process.

This is what you basically identified.



Had you found an example like this, more people would be inclined to agree.

Alright guys. I've paid for a couple ToJs in the past few months - a TOJ0 (paid in May) and a QDR (Paid on Monday). I'm getting both in black. I might be able to scrounge up enough money for a third, and I'm having a tough time deciding what to get. I'm leaning towards either a Brown A2 or a Black CWU-45/P. To be honest, I like the Black CWU more, but I'm worried that then I'll have 3 Black ToJs. Do you think I should go with the black or go with something different?

 

(Another possibility would be a dark brown CWU like pictured on the site, but I hear the common advice is CWUs should be black and A2s should be brown. On second thought, screw the common advice. I do what I want)

nothing wrong with three black tojs. if you wear mainly black I'd get the cwu. if you wear colors/earth tones/have to dress business casual then get the a2. think about what's in your wardrobe now and how you'd wear the a2 or the cwu. personally, I'd get the a2. but I don't wear very much black.

Electric Blue QDR, please excuse the less-then-ideal picture. Great jacket, thanks to the TOJ crew
