Black with brown like that looks bad 99 out of 100 times. The lamb suede has always been super underrated.

I got my navy/sand tan TOJ0 in, and I love it, except for one thing - the sleeves are incredibly tight.  Does the material loosen up a little over time?

Calf MDR from last year. Worn for almost three months, stashed for 6 months ... feel like I have to break it in all over again...

Trying to get as much wear out of it before reinforcements arrive nod[1].gif

I agree with what Cyc said above -- I don't know if it would be best with black. Though, I don't wear any black denim, so I can't really say.

I had heard of Al Madrigal before, but didn't know what he looked like. I won't disagree with the resemblance.

I've been sort of experimenting lately if and how to pair black boots & brown jacket. Not sure if I'm doing it "right" or if it is even possible, but anyway.. I've felt recently that the dark brown goat goes pretty well with black boots too.

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! 

Very nice! Could, you, or anyone else, post additional photos of the TOJ0 navy/sand colour way? Really stuck between that and the other choices.

doubt it-- 5'6 might make you a 44-lengths guy, but I wouldn't guarantee it. at 140, your shoulders/p2p are probably gonna be a 46.

if you were going out at night I think the dark brown + black shoes would work, but not in the daytime where the sun is gonna reveal that brown to be brown.
