The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2356

Very durable, very thick. Don't worry about tearing it. Just weighed my 2010DR and it was 4+ lbs of leather and hardware. satisfied.gif

I can imagine that the calf especially would be too substantial for a woman's dr (unless you're specifically going for that). It just doesn't drape like the lamb. I haven't personally had any experience with the goat

Punk girls wear calf jackets all the time.

Yeah, I just don't think she's specifically going for that. Seems more that she's worried she may damage it (lamb should be sturdy enough)

Honestly, it varies from jacket to jacket. My last lamb TOJ was incredibly thick and heavy, it could take a beating. My new one is a lot thinner and I find myself consciously taking a lot more care of it for fear that it will damage easily. I was actually pretty disappointed when I first opened the package and felt how light the jacket was compared to my last one. I'm really hoping I get thicker leather for the moto I'm waiting on currently.

I think the black lamb for a woman's jacket is the way to go though.

This is something that has been mentioned once or twice: the new black lamb not being as good quality (or as thick) as the old one.

Can anyone else confirm?

I think its based on what supplies they have at the time and if you are lucky, you may end up with thick lamb. 

 

I had requested for 'thick' lamb for my wifes bcdr but JC couldn't guarantee it so we went for the black heavy calf. I have a calf MDR already so our expectations were set and it seems black heavy calf doesn't vary in thickness/quality as much as the lamb does. 

 

My wifes first DR jacket was thin, black lamb but still nice and soft. It was also a darker black with a bit of sheen to it, like the calf. This jacket was sent back due to incorrect specs and the replacement we received came in the thick lamb but is more of a muted black colour.

Maybe it depends on the jacket ?
I bought an older Moto and bomber off the marketplace and the leather used was thinner than an mdr I bought

While the body length looks great, you will also need to lengthen it to maintain the general proportions of the jacket ... otherwise, your cropped look will resemble a woman's jacket.

Moto-style jackets are traditionally short bodied; Shotts are standardly this way. I would add an inch to the arm measurements as has been said, but it's not bad here.

What is the timeline for late orders looking like? I'm getting so anxious waiting for my first (and only) toj
