The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2388

post #35806 of 41879
Got my brown lamb CWU yesterday! Loving it so far, the fit seems absolutely spot on. Its my first TOJ and now I'm thinking about putting in a final order for a MDR.

I'm so jelly...still waiting for mine. It will be my first leather jacket and I'm in Canada. Temperatures here can go below -40 degrees CELSIUS, winter is coming. I'm wondering if the leather would crack in such a cold climate, anyone know?

Uhhh where do you live? Nunavut? -40 Celcius?

At -40 you best be wearing that TOJ leather jacket under a down parka so you're probably okay.

Yeah, I'm in Alaska and I don't recommend any leather jacket for that kind of cold unless it's lined with thick shearling. Even then there are much better options. I'd wear a leather with a hoodie or sweater underneath down to -30 Celcius, but only if I was driving in town without the possibility of getting stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Darn Wind Chill! It can be -3 Celcius outside and feel like -20 or something -_-

I live in Winnipeg and I've worn my ToJ1 out down to about -30°C and I haven't noticed any cracking or anything like that.

Yeeeeahh that's some serious braving the cold to wear it down to even -5. Canadian winters (apart from BC) aren't leather-friendly - down jackets are the way to go. Function over aesthetics.

It can hit -40 in Québec with the wind chill in winter.

After getting my toj0 I wanted a full leather in black lamb but I've been babying my varsity a lot--perhaps unnecessarily.

Anyway, I probably will get an MDR in black calf. Should I go for 3-zip or 4-zip? Gunmetal or silver? What do you guys think?

Funny, it can hit -40C near Toronto too, which is confusing since Potsnu posted that. I guess most people find shelter in the iron jungle. Most of non-coastal Canada, pretty much, gets to -40 a few times a year.

I'm in the Maritimes, and yeah with wind chill it can go to -40c...I won't be using it as a winter jacket lol, I just wanted to ask you guys incase

you guys are crazy with that weather. Anything below 50f (what is that? 8-10c?) And I skip leather all together and go for the warmest jackets I have. Wool.

That cutoff would limit my leather jacket wearing period to 3 months where I live.

Well people in Toronto will wear Canada Goose + sweat pants + UGGs/Timberlands in +10C lol

I'm rarely outside for more than a few minutes in the winter, as I'm either driving or taking a taxi.

But back to the topic, if you sized for a slightly looser fit you can easily wear a hoodie + leather jacket + scarf/toque/gloves and be reasonably warm.
