The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2202

post #33016 of 41311

TOJ quality has to be felt to be appreciated. It's a level of quality that people can't help but notice. I have a used DR and two questions I've been asked are "is that jacket new?" and "is the leather real?" because they haven't seen or felt that kind of lamb before. 

 

The jacket also looks much better in person than online. 

 

 

If I hadn't bought a used TOJ jacket I would never have dropped the money on a new, full leather. Just experiencing it in person was enough to convince me.

Submit body measurements for best results.

I can vouch this happens.

Worried about how floppy it will be in lamb when open. Looks so good zipped though.

Super-easy. Just wear it zipped like that for a while, and when you're not wearing it, leave it lying flat somewhere (couch, table, floor, whatever) in roughly the same position. The lapels will still move a little if they don't snap down, but not significantly.

Wait, when I made my last post, I was going off of the JC tumblr.

Aren't you supposed to submit body and jacket measurements in the first place? Or are you guys just reinforcing that idea? o_o


Or do people usually just order a size and hope that the 'house fit' (is that the right term?) will work out?





... wait, you're supposed to compare the measurements you get (with your own jacket and body) to whatever sizes they have, e.g. 46, 48, etc. (btw, are there sizes in between those, e.g. a 47, or are the listed sizes the only sizes they have since you can alter them, anyway?) and request your own alterations from there, right?

Or is it Charly who does that based on what you tell him?



i feel like i'm over-complicating this

You can submit one or both, up to you. I only submitted body and think that's the better way to do it honestly.

The reason why they ask for both (base jacket/body measurements) is so they/you have a benchmark to use as a base for spatial visualization.

  1. Look at TOJ fit pics
  2. Decide what style you'd like
  3. Find the kind of fit you want in the gallery on someone that is built like you
  4. Measure out your jacket
  5. Measure out relevant body measurements
  6. Send measurements to Charly, making sure to specify what kind of fit you're going for and what you're mostly going to be wearing with it
  7. While waiting for Charly to get back to you, put the base jacket on, go to the mirror, memorize what this looks like
  8. Now close your eyes and project that image into a dark space. What happens when I alter P2P here? How would increasing the circumference by 2 inches on each side affect my overall sihoulette? Does this length look right? Should I need to add or subtract anything to get a more boxier or slimmer fit? How would this look w/ the rest of my wardrobe? Is it cohesive?
  9. Make notes.
  10. When you get the measurements back, compare what you got with what Charly gives you. Revel in how spot on Charly is
  11. Send payment and forget you did
  12. One day you'll get something in the mail and it'll fit just like you envisioned it
  13. When your friends ask you how much it cost, tell them "my virginity"
  14. The End

I only submitted body measurements, and it works just fine.

Honestly you don't need to know much about fashion or leather to be able to appreciate how awesome these jackets are.

I have to wait for my MDR and stare at my toj0 sitting on the chair in my room. sometimes I wear my toj0 at night but summer in arkansas isn't very forgiving. atleast I can wear my toj0 while waiting for the MDR once the temperature is more appropriate.

Looks really good and you did a good job to have it sized.
post #33028 of 41311

Wow. I wish I was a blonde white person so I could pull off a jacket like that.

I'm approaching 20 weeks now lol, but It's 40 degrees C right now so not like it matters too much.

Navy body and grey goat sleeves here and I'm dying to see how that looks. At least you can imagine what an all black looks like.

If that's toffee tan then I wonder what Bright Whiskey looks like then.
