That might be worth more money, if Drew sheds a tear when he places that final TOJ label on the jacket and cures the leather.

How heavy is lamb suede in comparison to lamb leather? I'm considering placing another order before the cut-off and I'm debating going leather MDR/QDR or suede.

Since I am about to order my first (and probably last) TOJ this weekend, please say more about why you think goat > lamb. Don't care if it's a minority opinion. What I'm interested in is an MDR since I'd like something a bit less rakish/sporty than a BCDR, as well as something that's more minimalist. In grad school, so it's best to be on the conservative side. Heard a lot about TOJ lamb, so my first priority isn't hardiness as much as elegance/softness, but I'd like to know why you think goat is nicer than lamb.

So, I know TOJ's black lamb gets the most raves, but what about their other colors? I wear a lot of tans/blues/browns/burgundy, so I'd like to go for the whiskey lamb if I end up with lamb, else brown goat. 

 

And while we're on goat, could someone illustrate the difference between glazed/unglazed? I don't really know how the glaze is achieved, so is that something that needs to be conditioned/maintained over time?

I wish drew would make me a DR in red lamb instead of calf =/

You guys thought the zipper wars were bad?

One thing I wasn't aware of though, is that the "blacked out" apples to all hardware EXCEPT the snaps for buttoning down the collar, underneath. So it looks pretty weird to wear the collar up as there are 4 suddenly very noticeable metallic nipples sitting there. Hence, the following question: what should I do in order to make my blacked out DR fully blacked out? Only thing I can think to use is nail polish, which will probably come off if I actually use the snaps to snap the collar down ever.

It's leather, not silk. Tape will not hurt it.

Unless he got an Aventador, he should have bought a Ferrari and it has the same lead time as a Toj.

Or you could trade the lambo for a Poltrona Frau Toj.

Masking tape wouldn't have ripped any finish off sigh...

What color swatch should I go with the TOJ0 2013?

Black leather sleeves with black/navy or grey wool?

 

Currently leaning towards Navy.

I think for a rider jacket, you'd want the calf suede instead of lamb suede.  Lamb suede is what they make the T1/T3 out of and although I've never handled one, I think people's reviews are that it's pretty lightweight, so I'd imagine it's a lot lighter than lamb leather.

It's pretty lightweight and soft. Source: I own a lamb suede harrington.

popping in to say the baseball jacket is like, one of the best values in clothing. A full suede jacket for $450? I still can't get over it.

5 of my jackets, TOJ with two (leather MA-1 and BCDR) more inc.
post #36134 of 42285
Nice rack, DIY or retail?
post #36135 of 42285
Retail. Girlfriend got it on Etsy I believe.
