The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2403

post #36031 of 40729

Some pics of my 4-zip moto in brown calf. I've had it about a year. I wear it about 1/3 of the time; I typically go with my CWU.

 

 

 

 
I've added about 10 lbs in muscle since buying it, so a couple pages back I was throwing around the idea of buying a new one. My posture isn't great and I have prominent shoulder blades, so it kind of rides up in the back. It's also skintight when zipped, although I only wear it like that outside in cold windy weather. It's even tighter when wearing something more substantial than a t-shirt, e.g. undershirt and OCBD. However, I think I'm going to just keep it.

pull your jeans up a bit more, wouldn't want them to fall off

Heh. They're new and I needed to get a looser fit for my thighs than in the past. The waist is kinda big on any jeans with thighs large enough for me, so I need to keep my belt pretty tight and higher on my waist than normal.

Don't listen to him.

Remeasure "from the collarbone (top of the bone point, if you want to be exact) to where you think the jacket should hit." (probably at your belt buckle for MDR, see gallery for ideas)


Full TOJ Measuring Instructions (Click to show)

Measuring your body
Step 5) Front length - measure from the collarbone (top of the bone point, if you want to be exact) to where you think the jacket should hit. Preferably well below your navel, about where your pelvis dips down, but not quite all the way to the natural crotch. If you’re wearing jeans high and fitted on the butt, the jacket should hit about mid-rise on your jeans. If you wear your jeans slightly sagged, then it should go right below the waistband on your jeans.
(this measurement should be nowhere near as long as an untucked buttonup shirt, and if you wear your tees long, not as long as that either)

Measuring a jacket that fits
5) Front length: (the back length is calculated automatically from the front length) - Start from the bottom of the collar band, or if the jacket doesn’t feature this the same way, then where the small between your collarbones is, to the bottom of the jacket, straight down.

Tracking info received this morning, package received this afternoon.

 

Just got my "Charly special" MA-1 after about a 24 week wait. I took the advice of many on here and tried to forget I ordered a jacket.

Only emailed Charly once after my order went through ; /

 

I'm ecstatic. It's even more beautiful than I had anticipated and I know it'll look even better after I break it in a bit.

Sizing was spot on.

 

Man, it feels good!

Enjoy these shitty work bathroom pics : /

 

 

 

 

I always thought peeps were exaggerating the softness of the leather, they aren't.

It feels like it's too soft.

Is this "muted sky blue"? It's gorgeous.

 

Been following this thread for a long time. I've lost 20 pounds since August and am still in the process of losing another 20, but I want to get an order in before TOJ closes up shop permanently. Narrowed it down to these 3 (will pick 2): black lamb 2010 DR, brown lamb A-2, and a blue suede T-3.

post #36041 of 40729
Can't go wrong with the first two.
post #36042 of 40729
I'm still waiting on a brown lamb collared moto (first order). Had initially figured that would be my sole order, but now considering picking up an MDR too. If so, it would either be black calf or oxblood calf.

I don't wear much/any black, so hesitant about fitting the black into my wardrobe. Probably a oxblood then?
post #36043 of 40729
Why are you hestitant about adding black into your wardrobe? It's not hot pink.

It's black....anyone can rock black. Black goes with everything....

I used to be against wearing black, but at the time toj's only came in black. And now I can't get enough black in my wardrobe, and I'm moving to a mostly monochromatic set of clothes (just need to get some more black denim)
post #36045 of 40729
After a little deliberation, changed my order from sand tan BCDR to Electric blue goat with double needle diamond quilt. I'm damned excited.
