The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2286

post #34276 of 42234
Saw this weekender by Sandro at Bloomingdales outlet for 340. Looked like a perfect set to Toj daypack with black suede, leather bottom and even silver ykk zips.

Black Lamb:

MA-1 w/ Silver 
CWU-45
MDR 4-zip w/ Silver
DR 2010 w/ Gunmetal

Black or Oxblood Calf:

DR 2010 
DR 2013 
MDR 3zip w/ Gunmetal (Possibly silver with oxblood)

I think I might feel kind of weird owning two biker-style jackets. Right now I'm leaning towards one of the lamb bombers, but it feels kind of tragic not getting a biker jacket in lamb though since that is TOJ's specialty after all.


edit: @5354 When there's a will, there's a way.

edit2: I'd appreciate if this didn't turn the TOJ thread into the temporary "Current Events, Power and Money" subforum.


c'mon, dude, don't go into debt 'cause of clothes

didn't you say you were going to college? it's tough to think about it now 'cause you're so set on getting a nice jacket, but you'll appreciate it later down the road. prioritize.


and with how popular toj is, they'll come back for sure so don't worry

Hmm masshi makes a strong argument.

dude seriously, you don't want to look back in 10 years and realize that the cause of your mountain of debt was two leather jackets...

I don't think it works that way?

Maybe one leather jacket then? Or two jackets, one leather and one wool bodied? 

It's not every day that people can plan regret with such clarity.

Cole; that damage doesn't look that bad, If I were you, I'd try to save some cash, pull the fender off and hammer it out from the other side if possible (there may be some structure on the inside of the fender that would need to be removed or worked around).

From there it probably won't look nearly as bad. Hell, some white spraypaint would probably cover it from there for the time being.

It definitely does. Once you break the seal, all bets are off.

I guess all Temples need sacrifices and Distorb will be ours

he was probably exaggerating, but if you go into debt and can't pay it off, you start having to make interest payments and then you gotta split between paying off the interest and buying things for yourself (necessities or not)

and then, maybe, since you're already in debt, you start thinking to yourself that, hey, might as well buy some more stuff since i'm already in debt anyway and a little more wouldn't hurt and yada yada (like a slippery slope)

now i'm not gonna claim to know distorbiant and i'm not gonna say with certainty that he's the type of dude who's susceptible to the above mindset, but it's a possibility





also, distorb, once again i don't know how strapped for cash you are atm since idk you, but imagine what it might be like having to sell one of the jackets you got 'cause times just got that rough

wouldn't it be more crushing to have to sell one you got really attached to than to have never had it to begin with?


in the end, though, it's all up to you

if you do end up buying them, i really hope that you have how you're going to manage the rest of your funds from there on planned out really, really well

I'm all for instant gratification (I have student loans out the ass and I still got a couple) but I wouldn't go into credit card debt for two jackets. If you're struggling week-to-week or month-to-month, hold off.

You're going off to college? Just one good jacket is enough--most of us got by on none. There's a ton of unexpected costs when you're living on your own.

That's enough money talk. I can't wait til this heat wave ends so I can wear something other than shorts and a t. Too many jackets wasting away in the closet.

Word. I went into Uni with virtually no clothing. I was dirt poor, had a couple shitty fitting pairs of pants and tacky t-shirts falling apart at the seams. Now that I can afford more, I certainly buy it up, but I, and most other guys here got by just fine with shit all. You'll get enough girls with alcohol, Distorb.

if y'all wanted an update, charly says they'll be taking orders for a couple more weeks, lead times are 20weeks.

Has anyone had any experience with customs fees? I just don't wanna be charged $300 on top of a $800 jacket.

Speaking of jacket, I was planning to get a woman's QDR: black lambskin, channel quilt, silver hardware. (yes I am a girl, yes I am in the classic menswear part of SF) I'm not too sure if I want the quilting though, does anyone have photos of the WQDR?

Customs are going to depend on your country, but the vast majority of people don't get hit with crazy fees. I think I've heard of $60 from someone in the UK. They really can't calculate the true value of the jacket without recognizing it's a ToJ and checking the price online, which is never, ever going to happen unless Drew decides to go full retail on our asses. The value marked on the package keeps customs uninterested.
