I had two jackets come in the same package once and they marked it as $30 and it got through customs fine.

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?

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

little bit of duct tape and tlc is all my baby needs... haha thanks though man I'll try that. my moms boyfriend stuck a board under it and tried to pry it out but to no avail.

This isn't Classic Menswear. Please don't group us with those people. Ugh.

 

But yeah, get the quilting IMO. It just gives the jacket so much more character. 

 


the OG BCDR with the microdiamond quilt is still the best tho.

Anyone own the a2 and cwu?

I bought my a2 2 years ago and found that compared to my new cwu, the leather is much thicker and smoother.

Even the smell is different. The cwu has a plastic smell, like pleather?
My a2 was brown, cwu is black, is coloring the reason? Or have toj changed their leather recently?
post #34299 of 45029
Black lamb is the best leather offered. Do you really think they sent you a pleather jacket?
post #34300 of 45029

There's a difference between the brown lamb and black lamb from my experience. The brown is much thicker and the black is thinner. 

post #34301 of 45029

So I'm gonna drop yet another open request for suggestions on you guys, hope that's cool.

 

Right now I've got a brown lamb collared moto, and it's basically all I wear when weather is appropriate. I don't *need* another jacket, but I have the ability to pay and the prospect of TOJ disappearing is making me want to get one more.

 

So the deal is that as much as I love the other rider designs I think I'd like something significantly different. I'm currently thinking A2 in dark brown goat, CWUin black, or a suede T-3 in an undetermined color (on that note, I'm unschooled on the difference between the T-1 and T-3, so feel free to enlighten me). 

 

I love both of the bomber designs. On the A2 I like it in brown but kinda feel like it will be just a bit redundant with a brown CM in terms of warmth as well as color and silhouette; I know it's different from a rider in a lot of important ways but I feel like I'd never say "the A2 would really be better than CM for this outfit." My leaning towards the dark brown goat is partially to make it more different from the CM. Again, please enlighten me.

 

The CWU would be different from what I've got, especially in black, but I'm still in the fashion phase where I'm worried that black outerwear won't go with much of what I wear -- indigo jeans or earth tone/charcoal chinos, standard white/blue/grey OCBDs, work shirts, etc. with brown boots, however I also have recently started doing more sneakers with solid tees which I know would fit with the black more.

 

The suede T-3 I like a lot because I'm under the impression that it's lighter weight (which I may be mistaken about) as well as being a much different look both because of the styling and the suede. As mentioned above I'm unsure of coloring, but thinking something a little unusual like the green or blue options.

 

So that's my rambling. Does anyone have any opinions or corrections to my assumptions? Thanks!

post #34302 of 45029
cwu in black or t-1 in med gray, imo
post #34303 of 45029
Purple, dark green or dark red t-3
post #34304 of 45029
thanks for the insight, everyone :fistbump:

 

first time getting a toj, do i send over both body measurements and jacket measurements? or just body measurements?

 

also, is there even a slight possibility of me ordering a jacket now, them closing up shop (and stopping manufacturing), and then me never receiving a jacket? i think it'd probably be unlikely but i don't wanna risk anything. 

post #34305 of 45029

mcmc they are very trustworthy. Send both measurements if you can. 

 

@NotClever you should get the CWU-45p.  I'd recommend a DR over anything else though.
