That one dude is dying for fit pics.

As far as lining goes, you've already received your jacket so I'd just keep it. Not worth the extra time and money in your case.

there's always going to be something marginally better. You just have to decide what you're happy with.

I already paid for my QDR so I feel like the bemberg ship has sailed. But I'm getting a CWU too. Thinking about jumping on the bemberg salad bar hype train.

Might need to find a way to upgrade the lining. Omg.


Dude, just got to a bloody tailor, they're used to changing the linings in jackets. Hell, get something fancy while you're there.

what the fuck is wrong with this thread? never seen any complaint about sateen lining. once you've finally got the jacket, does it really matter what kind of lining is it?

To the next person to discuss bemberg lining here.. I'm going to tell Daniel to throw your jacket into the Han River smile.gif

*Changes topic*

When people ask you guys how much your toj cost, what is the usual reaction? and do you try telling them what a bargain it is compared to high end designer stuff that is off the rack?

Most of my friends know that i'm into clothes, so they just assume everything is expensive now (which can be just as annoying). Otherwise i just say "it cost a bit" and change topic - trying to reason that it's MTM, amazing leather, bargain compared to most designers etc. just seems to blow over their head because all they can hear is that i've spent several hundred dollars on a jacket.

the sarcasm was lost completely... anyways got my new TOJ OXBLOOD (not burgundy, because its really oxblood in real life). I sized up a bit compared to my navy DR. I like the new details although the cuffs are wierd and they are not the convertible cuff with the snaps. also there are alot more unfinished edges with this jacket, say for example the belt, epaulets, pocket flat etc. That is, I can see the edge of the leather where in my navy DR, everything had been folded and stitched, with no exposed cutting edges. Can't type in this jacket because it bunches up at the wrist when zipped. a more relaxed fit here, but these pics are bad so will get better ones tmr in day light.

In terms of the texture of the oxblood calf, still soft, not too thick (its not thin either), a bit drier than the navy calf, and a bit tougher, and not as waxy. Some leather conditioner will definitely help this thing break in. bigger lapels, bigger collar, when folded up it will engulf your face.

overall its a great jacket but there was more attention to detail on the old MDR IMO. Thanks again for everything TOJ crew, Drew Charly Dan Sally.

I like the looser fit. I sized all my next batches of jacket to have a slight amount of room to accomodate for growth etc. and comfort.

My A-2 Bomber fits exactly perfect, which is difficult when I attempt basic things like grabbing the seat belt from the back lol.
