The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2222

post #33316 of 42781

Thanks for the kind words! The sleeves could perhaps be a little longer but I see this as being more of a late-autumn/winter jacket, so it'll be fine with a nice sweater and some gloves.

 

ToJ's calf is a completely different animal to the lamb. Whereas the lamb is soft and smooth, the calf is stiff, rigid, but you can see that it's got a lot to give if you just invest the time into it. I'm going to be beating the hell out of this jacket for years to come.

 

Couple more pics:

Talk of broken in lamb got me to take another pic of my 2010 dr i've been wearing regularly since october 2011. This jacket defines toj for me.

And it's got some scuffs from excessively drunken nights, but it is very resilient. The lamb doesn't need to be babied like some people worry.

Yesterday was like Christmas, waking up to two packages delivered by the mailwoman. One of them being a long (but worth it) five month wait for my TOJ Men's Band Collar Double Rider - the quality is flawless. I'm sad this is the end, but I'm glad I could be one of the final customers. I'm also almost certain my jacket was the one featured on the TOJ tumblr four days ago; extra dope. I just wanted to share my enthusiasm with all of you in the forums. Supple...

 

(Sorry about the dirty mirrior...)

so, do plackets actually serve a function, or is it just a purely aesthetic thing?

From what I understand, beyond looking awesome it also makes it easier to zip up the jacket.

I think the placket looks cool when the jacket is unzipped but for me it actually makes it harder to zip up because it gets in the way sometimes

I've experienced this too, but I think phosej would agree it's not a big deal either way.

@ "MASAMUNE, is that lamb or calf?

Superior choice going with channel quilt instead of diamond.

Most likely lamb since he's describing it as "supple".

Hoping to get an order for a ma1 in, but torn between charcoal and navy. I like how dark and versatile the navy looks, while it hard to get a good read on the charcoal from the pics. Any ToJ experts care to weigh in?

I think hhhenry sold the navy for me, if I were to ever get one -- it just makes you feel official like you're wearing some uniform. I can't speak on the charcoal. But I just think the navy would be boss.

I went with charcoal for my ma-1 because of artishard and bows1.
