I thought about that as soon as everyone started clamoring to order. While it would be awesome, I don't think it would happen. I do hope he comes back at some point though, as I would love an ma1 at some point and then maybe another leather or something.

Well he did say he would be coming back with capsule collections. I could see Drew potential factory made sizes of say the TOJ Varsity during an anniversary year with pre-made quantities and release them that way.

It wouldn't be terrible amount of work for him, and it will allow him more capital to inject back in his restaurant operations. It's always nice to have a secondary source of income, during the initial few years of a new restaurant opening. At least in Canada, only 1 in 5 restaurants survive the first few years of operations.

Well, last summer hiatus was exactly that, a short break.  

 

This one is billed as an end.  Capsule collections could be something like a bag, where you don't have to worry about sizing.  

 

He said jackets were "generally done" and MTM is for sure completely done.

The CWU and A-2 are also pretty close in design though besides the shearling, wouldn't you say (and pocket angle)? I favor the CWU over the A-2, and the 4-zip Moto 2011 over both I think. I won't go lamb A-2 anyway, the reason I'd choose an A-2 would be because of warmth and the whole snow thing, so it would be in goat. But maybe your right about it being redundant.

 

Could a black lamb CWU be worn in snowy weather regularly though? And what kind of temperature could a lamb CWU and calf/goat Moto respectively be worn in comfortably (with a sweater underneath)?

To be honest if you are planning to wear it in snow regularly I would go goat or calf, because lamb does not fair so well in wet conditions.

Also if you slip over lamb will quite easily scratch. I would suggest you get one lamb jacket for nicer days, and a calf and goat jacket.

 

The A2 in brown goat would look pretty nice and glazed goat is pretty water resistant.

With the moto you really can't go wrong with the leather, and I would suggest maybe a black lamb ribbed collar cwu-45 so you have something a bit different to the A2.

Planning to get my first TOJ jacket which will be an a-2 bomber soon,

debating between brown lamb or brown goat. I'm planning to pretty much wear this jacket for all seasons other then really hot summers (+20 celsius) or -4 celsius and below weather. (Canada eh) 

 

So my question is: should I get a goat or lamb O_o

Charly recommended lamb for my first jacket, but I am really afraid of a small brush against something and causing a noticeable scratch on the lambskin, and I'm afraid of the weather (rain and snow)

 

Is goat that much more durable?

 

 

Also, does anyone actually have the suede name tag? how does it look, any pictures?

I think TOJ should take orders until the end of the month smile.gif

I was under the impression that both glazed/unglazed goat are water resistant. Is that not true? Only the glazed?

I think the lamb is a lot more durable than gets made out in this thread. Sure you have to be careful, but unless you're running away from the cops and climbing chain link fences, you'll be fine. 

 

Suede tag is all over here: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=6841

I assume unglazed goat is pretty waterproof as drew was originally planning to put it on the backpacks.

Also the lamb is pretty durable when compared to most other lamb jackets, but compared to calf and goat it scuffs and scratches very easily.

The cuffs of lamb jackets get worn especially quickly.

I chose dark brown goat with placket and no suede name tag for A-2 first. Went with brown lamb with placket and suede tag at the end and Charly was very helpful changing my order. I also ordered black lamb 4 zip Moto with silver zips as my second lamb.

I think A-2 in brown lamb showcased 99.9% in TOJ Gallery. I'm still thinking about dark brown goat though lol.

It's important to differentiate between waterproof and water resistant. They are two very different things.

My lamb jackets have survived rush hour on the London underground, boat parties, raves, heavy pub sessions and generally being thrown around, it's not going to scratch that easily.

Not a jacket or a daypack, but i got my shirt the other day. It's lovely and I wish I had ordered a few more.
