post #32566 of 40666

Can anyone comment on how warm the toj0 is? Could I wear it in spring/summer at all (~25 degrees)?

I hope one day I will click on this thread, and gdl will have posted some crazy super next level one off jacket he secretly commissioned from Drew. One can dream.

I tried to commission the Big Boss jacket from the MGS5 trailer.

 

No luck :(

I'm guessing that's Celcius. No you can't.

I would say around 15 degrees, maybe even 20 degrees at night....

Damn, might have to wait until late april to wear mine then...

I can't imagine wearing any jacket above 20 degrees.

Rarely wear one over 10c.

I believe so. I have an italian olive calf DR and the first picture represents the color pretty well.

Thanks guys. I e-mailed Charly and it looks like the shade actually varies depending on what the supplier has on hand. This would explain why it's so hard to pin down in pictures from different members who ordered their jackets at different times.

Trust Charly.

So I searched "bright + whisky" and only 9 posts come up, none with photos.

What is this most similar to? I love Aeglus's whiskey calf but I know that's no longer available. Would the Bright Whisky be more Jack Daniel's colour, or lighter?

I'm having a tough time deciding between Bright Whisky/Toffee Tan vs Olive Green. There doesn't seem to be much pictures of either colour and they can vary by camera and computer monitor.

Long rambling post..

 

Alright, I'm really indecisive when it comes to my TOJ trio, would be nice if I found out about them a year ago instead of now when they are closing shop, but I've narrowed it down at least. I should be getting a black lamb collared CWU soon so the first jacket is settled. I paid for two more jackets recently, I want to change them and decide now before the cut off. I'm thinking about a couple of combinations. Initially I wanted a T-1, but the summers are really short here and it rains a lot, plus  three leather jackets feels like more bang for the buck. I prefer the CWU, 2011 Moto and A-2 models over the rest, I don't think a rider would suit me. 

 

First option would be: Black lamb collared CWU  -  Black goat 4-zip 2011 Moto  -  Dark brown goat A-2

 

Second option: Black lamb collared CWU  -  Black goat 4-zip 2011 Moto  -  Whiskey calf 4-zip 2011 Moto

 

First one would be nice as I get the warmest jacket available right now and it should stand up to snow well. The bad would be that I'd have three dark looking jackets, and I'm thinking ribbed jackets won't hold up as well as all leather ones.

If I go with the second, I'd get a whiskey jacket, which I think would suit my complexion well and has the potential to look awesome in a couple of years. But, this would mean two jackets in the same model, although very different in color/material and perhaps no warm jacket for cold days that would work in snow.

 

 

 

So, my questions are: 

 

Glazed or unglazed black goat for a 4-zip Moto? I really like the model, the black lamb ones looks perfect to me (but I don't want two black lamb jackets), so I'm hoping a black goat 4-zip silver zippers Moto would look awesome as well? The whiskey would suit me and has great potential with heavy wear I know.

 

Initially I thought about the Moto in dark brown goat, but that would essentially work as a black jacket in my wardrobe but still not quite be one, and I'd much rather have one "true" brown and two black jackets than the opposite. I'm thinking that in an A-2, the ribbing and shearling would bring the dark brown goat back a bit and give it more of a feel of a brown jacket compared to a Moto right?

 

Would two 4-zip Moto jackets be too much? The color and material are different for sure, but it's still the same model which makes me hesitate.

 

What kind of temperature can you wear a goat A-2 in and a calf/goat Moto? (With a thick sweater underneath). The ribbing and shearling makes the A-2 warmer of course, but with a scarf and the added thickness of the calf, maybe they would be about the same? Or would the lamb CWU work in snow? Rain I understand would be bad for lamb, but snow shouldn't be as bad and it's black, so there would be no discoloration really. With a scarf it should be as warm as the A-2. If the CWU could be worn on snowy days it would make my choice a lot more simple.

2 4-zip Motos would be redundant.

Black Lamb CWU, 4-zip Moto in almost anything, and Brown Lamb A2 would be the way to go.
