That just doesn't do it for me, it'd be cheese, and incongruent with the way every TOJ previous has been made.

If I walked up to a sheep with a knife and took it's skin off, hung that up and washed the blood off it, and then did some basic bleaching or dying, trimming of the pile, then you end up with the kind of shearling that goes into Uggs, or the shearling part of the TOJ A2 collar

Also, FWIW - your fur collar looks fine, it looks like fur. Shorter hair would either be too thin, or too cropped (like shearling - which is called shearling because it's shorn) - not in line with the design ideals of the jacket, I feel.

It's shorn-pile shearling. You do get it if you get the brown goat, though the color of the shearling will be lighter in comparison to the leather; it will be a good look though. Just not the same on same look as with the brown lamb.

Can't believe how late I am on this. It sounds like the most amazing consept and would have loved it.
post #34855 of 39271

After hearing about how TOJ was closing up shop, I decided to finally stop sleeping and get in an order. I put in an order for the TOJ0 2013 in black/sand. I'm kind of paranoid about sizes and am now debating whether I should change my order and go up a size. I went for a size 44 with 46 lengths; I'm 5'9, 130lbs-ish with 16" shoulders and 33" chest. I did a whole bunch of Googling and digging in this thread to see if I could find other fits and measurements similar to mine, and after spending the last couple days doing so, I figured I'd just ask your guys' opinion. 

 

Thanks ya'll.

Where can I take a look at their available (not discontinued) styles? I'd want s jacket but don't have too much too spend. I'd have to go with the most affordable pieces. (Which are those?)

Thanks a million for the help!

He suggested a 46 stock as well, but after telling him I measured a bunch of jackets and the ones that fit better were closer to the 44, and that most off the rack smalls are too big for me, he said just go for 44 with 46 lengths. I'm just having that paranoia that first timers seem to have and kicking myself wondering if I should have listened to Charly, as is often repeated.
