How does the shipping out work anyways? I used to think it was every friday that huge batches were sent out, but now it seems more sporadic?

I talked myself out of oxblood calf as my first-and-only leather in favor of something lighter and more versatile, so just trying to live vicariously... I've seen all the posted photos; we demands politely requests the freshness!

It has never stood out as a integral detail to me either way.

I thought the without patch recommendation was tied to the leather choice - I think it was something like with patch if you're getting brown lamb, without for anything else.

Also, I know they don't recommend a patch if you're getting goat.  The suede just doesn't look right ontop of the goat.

Definitely love the patch on my black CWU/45 but I think the A2 can actually do without, and is probably more versatile (and less casual?) without.

The patch on the A-2 is supposed to be a nice little nod/homage to the vintage/old school A-2/G-1 jackets that pilots/airmen wore.

Hi friends, I just ordered a leather MA-1 and TOJ0. Still unsure what colour for the TOJ0.

 

Does anyone have a grey/black or grey/grey or black/grey combo? I'm curious what is the combo of the one posted on the tumblr. Looks really good.

 

To rephrase, does anyone have regrets going with black/black and think a grey/black combo might work better?

 

Cheers

I originally ordered black/black and switched to grey/black, which is what was just posted on their fb

Man, I haven't been here in a few weeks and I was content with just having a moto, but now I see orders appear to still be open, I'm starting to itch for that suiting wool MA1 again...

If they're still open next week perhaps I will be emailing charly. Atleast sizing should be easy since I think they're stock sizes only.

I'm waiting on my first TOJ jacket (black leather MA-1), if they're still open for business after I get I think I'm going to go for the T1 (I don't want to order until I try my MA-1 to make sure my measurements are good). I'm thinking Navy for T1, but can't seem to find pictures of one in Navy...thoughts?

There's a leather ma-1? The site only shows the suiting wool one in available products. Anybody have pics?
post #34931 of 43304
leather ma-1 is a modified cwu-45 which is where the pics are

Unglazed brown goat A-2 came in. I'm really glad I went with the goat. It's really supple still, but seems a little more abrasion-resistant than lamb. Wish I'd gone a little larger on the bicep measurement, because I think it will constrict my arms if I'm wearing a thicker sweater. Otherwise it fits me great.

...this post is missing something
post #34934 of 43304
Your right, something is missing, but I can't quite put my finger on what... Anyways, good news!

My jackets arrived today! About 4 days from notification to delivery in Los Angeles smile.gif
post #34935 of 43304

Unglazed dark grey goat 4-zip moto arrived today. The leather is absolutely amazing, feels really different to the lamb more abrasion resistant but quite a bit lighter.

The unglazed goat still has a little bit of sheen to it so it makes me wonder quite how shiny the goat is in person.

Shipping was insanely fast, arrived in 3 days to the UK.

Will try and get pics up later.
