I don't know if I would wear it for say a montreal winter, but been certainly fine for nyc

are you layering underneath?

I wear my lamb BCDR with a tee-shirt and a sweater underneath in Ottawa, at about -10C I have to switch to a winter jacket. That's wearing a toque and gloves as well, of course. In Montreal you're not using this are your winter jacket. When it hits -45C you'll die.

warmer than i expected. safe to assume double riders are warmer than the moto 2011 because of the extra leather/collar? waiting on one in lamb, assumed i could only use it in fall/spring.

I can't imagine wearing my Toj in 20-30 fahrenheit even with the fur collar, damn.

Me until March (that's when I THINK my jacket will be delivered at least)

I wish I hadn't been in the process of losing weight, or had some kind of psychic powers to know what my measurements would be after it all came off. I want a TOJ so bad and now it'll never happen. frown.gif

^You can always pay for a jacket now and send measurements in later.

Fishtails are the greatest thing ever

Woohoo.. making my first foray into ToJ land. Read about 80% of the posts in this awesome thread, came away with the following conclusions:

 

i) Trust Charly and do not bug them with incessant emails.

ii) Calf and goat skin wear better than lamb after 2-3 years

iii) Motos are better for stout figures while DR's are good for leaner figures

iv) 4 zips > 2 zips (it helps to break the monotony), silver hardware > antique

v) The Tumbler site has all the options available, there are no secret options

 

Is this about accurate?

^ Sounds about right. I'm about to take my first dive into TOJ as well. I really, really like the idea of buttery-soft lamb, but I keep seeing these comments about how goat is better after a few years...blargh. I definitely see myself wearing this for 5+ years, or as long as it holds up.

Sometimes I feel like there are secret colors frown.gif

I also believe gunmetal is better than silver in some cases.

Leather ma-1 is a secret option that's not mentioned on the Tumblr. Otherwise, you're right.

Which cases?

And I can think of at least 5 secret jacket options. I know some of the secret options, like the AMDR, are no longer offered though.

I just asked Charly if it's possible to do the "ultra" minimalist double rider http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=20886

 

No go. Did TOJ not like that or something? Charly said they just don't want to do anything they don't find aesthetically pleasing anymore. Hrm.
