CWU isn't a good choice to go in anything but black lamb because there are two non-leather parts to that jacket that must be matched to the leather.

 

 

I assume the two non-leather part he's referring to are the suede patch and the ribbing? If so, how is it any different than the A-2, where we see a lot of brown lamb? Just the style of jacket? 

 

I'm asking because I like the CWU a lot (more than the a2), but don't wear much black. Mostly navy, grey, brown, etc, pretty boring. What about a CWU in dark brown goat? Almost black, but still brown. Maybe not as ideal as black lamb, but still pretty awesome?

I was going to get mine a dropped shoulder Suiting Wool MA 1, but couldn't figure how to tweak the sizing (oversize with smaller lengths??) so instead I got one for myself. I'm terrible shog[1].gif

No, don't be irrational.

temporary pain (interest payments) for long term gain (having a sick-ass jacket from a defunct brand)

What about bill me later? You get 6 months to pay it off no interest if you don't have an account now. Interest is charged from start of 6 months though if you don't pay it off

Debt is never short term unless you have cash for sure to pay it off

i've wasted money on worse things than interest payments. c'est la vie.

if you have to ask though, you probably shouldn't.

I have the CWU in brown lamb and the name patch is brown suede. I think it looks great and definitely more versatile for me than black.

Your question can be answered looking at http://24.media.tumblr.com/15b2d8d0812325f7c26350bfde6ad3d4/tumblr_mhcuiyOG1E1rk0hu3o1_1280.jpg

Just take a look at the pictures on the gallery.

Black



vs

Brown

I'm with Drew on this one. But in the end, it's your money.

Thanks man. Definitely have browsed the gallery extensively and the black looks awesome. I was mostly just curious what Drew's rationale was when he basically recommended black lamb and black lamb only for this jacket in particular. Guess it just looks better? I probably agree, but I know I wouldn't wear black as much as dark brown.

Man, I've been waiting to buy a TOJ, because I've been getting in better shape, and wanted to wait until I was stable, but I'm clearly out of time. I will have to be slightly chubby forever to maintain a perfect fit.

I did this, too. Not to say that you haven't considered this before. But honestly, I didn't think I could wear black. I thought the brown would go better with my wardrobe. Went with a black CWU, have not looked back. It goes with a lot more than I thought.

To each their own. I don't typically love brown footwear with black outerwear.
