I DON'T UNDERSTAND BLOG PHOTOGRAPHY. WHO IS JUST FOLLOWING YOU AROUND TAKING PHOTOS OF YOU?

Are you the guy from City of Gentlemen?

Moreover, who takes pictures of you but never warns you about wearing a black leather jacket with brown leather shoes? You need to fire your blogger.

This isn't the 90s. Those matchy-matchy rules are very dated.

Nobody follows me... they were outside of an event I attended and asked to shoot me real quick.

It's a very casual outfit he threw on, who gives a shit if it's matching or not. This isn't a suit.

"While posing for these photographs to post on my fashion forum, a fan approached me.

 

'Are you AKang from the TOJ thread?'

'Why yes, I am.'"

It's not about him breaking a "rule," it's about it looking bad.

Alright, the T1! (with a crappy camera)

 

 

Buttoned, collar popped

Unbuttoned, collar down

Attempt at different lighting

The Stable: Cracked Pepper Fishtail, Navy/sand tan TOJ0, Medium Grey T1, Black Lamb CWU

 

Simply put: the T1 is awesome. I won't bore you, as I think Synthese has already captured its essence in his excellent review. There isn't much more to add to it, other than I'm once again just floored by the material used. The T1 in that lamb suede ends up feeling like a really heavy shirt; but not a heavy jacket. Ultimately, I never know what to expect with a TOJ right out of the package (I even stopped and reminded myself, "you only once get to touch this material for the first time") , and every single time it has surprised me for the better. I mentioned it in passing before, but I ended up foregoing the BCDR for the T1, because for me, I thought it would be easier to wear. After wearing it, I think it was the best choice for me. It will be the jacket I wear as I become an old man. 

 

I'm happy to have essentially been able to sample most of the TOJ materials (as a materials engineer, I feel like this is my duty, and how I justify that ~$2500 expenditure within a year) -- my only regret is that I didn't get anything in calf. Though, if I went with another leather, it would be extremely hard to pass up another of the black lamb.

 

I got to wear everything but the parka this week to work, and it is truly amazing, as Synthese mentioned, how you can simply wear a TOJ, a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers, and feel absolutely amazing about an outfit. They fit me so well (thanks Charly -- you went 4-for-4 on me, I love you). It's not a sense of cockiness, so much as it is just absolute confidence in how much a TOJ piece will contribute to your outfit, and make you look entirely fly.

 

My friend cheezewiz put me onto TOJ about a year ago, and I feel like you guys have absolutely stepped my game up. I will miss you guys a lot (my wallet will be happy, though). I do hope you return, as I would like to get a calf jacket eventually. 

 

Thanks TOJ Crew, and all the users here!

Didn't know Al Madrigal was an SF poster/TOJ fanboy.

How does the med grey t1 pair with black? I have a black/black toj0 as my final order but keep thinking maybe it's too similar to the lamb ma-1. I mostly wear black, thinking about going for the grey t1 instead maybe.
