The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2428

post #36406 of 45018

This is probably a stupid question that I would be able to figure out if I knew how the search the thread, but what are excella zips? Are they different from the YKK standard zips?

post #36407 of 45018

I am reading this Toj thread for more than a year now, but this is my very first post. I put my order on 17/8, black/black TOJ0. I get for 50 with 48 legths. But then I somehow saw fit photos of user Leather. He said that the jacket is tight in the shoulders and he has it in size 50. He's 6" and 160 pounds. I am 5,9 and 176 pounds - chest 18,5 inch. Charlie said 50 will be good, he said the same for Black lamb MA-1 I am planning to order before cutoff. But I am afraid I have to contact him to change size of my already ordered TOJ0 to 52 with 48 lengths. What do you guys think? :)

They are more finely finished than the standard zips used. They are also shinier. They're only available for black jackets.

Your chest measurement isn't that big for your weight. You should just listen to Charly...

Make sure you've taken the measurements correctly, if so, trust Charly.

I'm pretty sure half of us are waiting for this exact jacket (minus excella zips for me.)

 

I'm not going to come right out and say that I think diamond quilting looks bad, but why anybody would go for it over the channel is beyond me.

Diamond quilt looks nice on the suedes though, but I agree I haven't liked it on the normal leather make ups (although that women's version was pretty nice). For my order, I went with no quilting smile.gif

Has anyone found their silver zippers to oxidize and change in appearance with age? With the gunmetal we have oxidation leading to that sort of rainbowish-bronze, but I haven't heard of or seen the silver changing yet.

Damn, It was my first post and I already said something wrong. 18,5 is my shoulders measurements and pit to pit 22. That's why I think size 50 won't fit me well.

Obviously there's variation, but those measurements look much better given your height and weight (similar to mine)

 

I'm not sure how you originally got 18.5" for your chest

I didn't take wrong measurements, I wanted to type shoulders but automaticly typed chests. That's all. So, you think I should size up?

post #36416 of 45018
How did you take a "p2p" measurement of your chest? It's now exactly clear what/how you measured to get these numbers...

Size 50 is 18.3 shoulder to shoulder and 22 pit to pit.

 

 

You have 18.5 shoulders and a 44 inch chest.

 

Sounds like you should get someone to measure you again or size up.

Ah, it's so obvious that I slept only 3 hours. Shoulders are 18,5 and around chests is 44. I am sorry for last two confusing posts. I think my chests and size 50 is ok, but I am afraid the jacket would be to tight in shoulders. I will always wear it unzipped but anyway. I want a little loose fit, like Drew's on the photos of MA-1 few posts back.

post #36419 of 45018

Sussi, if your chest is 44 inches, and the jacket is 44 inches, do you not see the problem there?

 

You're going to be a melton wool sausage.

post #36420 of 45018

What size do you usually wear for jackets?

Your measurements seem off...

 

Do you have any other clothes that fit how you want the TOJ0 to fit?

If you do, then measure those clothes and use them as a comparison.

Did you follow their measuring guide? http://johncoppidge.tumblr.com/howtoorder

 

Also, did you tell Charly what kind of fit you were looking for?

The more information you give him (with accurate measurements), the more he'll be able to help you out.

The ToJ house fit is generally slim-fitting so if that isn't your thing then let him know and he'll adjust accordingly.
