I'm sure this has been asked a million times, but how long have you had your lamb DR for and how has it aged? Not in terms of how it looks really... but construction and materials-wise, has it held up well?

One of the (many) things I find kind of lacking about this thread are long-term reviews. There's a lot of anticipation and then inevitably some gushing after receiving the jacket, but not much of a longer-term view from people that have had a TOJ for a while.

Is the bemberg lining standard on the QDR?

No.

It's probably around 2.5 years old maybe even 3. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the construction and material, the leather still feels amazing but obviously it's not as soft as day 1. I've never had another lamb leather jacket for any longer period of time so I can't really compare. The leather is scratched up in some places where I probably fell or scratched against walls, it's just an overall beat up look, there are pics of it in the toj gallery somewhere

Everybody knows its top notch quality, no need for a review.

If everyone knew, nobody would be asking :P

just not sure what kind of review one would expect. "year later, jacket still really awesome"

"three years later, despite being made of lamb it has not disintegrated as some would suggest"

people generally post their impressions as soon as they get it and then wear it

It would be cool to see some black goat or calf with age. Not many detailed shots of that.

Anyone got tracking recently? If so when did you place your order?

Just ordered a MDR in olive calf with silver 3-zip. smile.gif I couldn't find any pics of olive with gunmetal hardware and I couldn't really picture it in my head either. The pics with silver looked nice though so I went with that.

I kind of think I should get a bomber too. I'd probably feel guilty for buying yet another jacket that I don't really need but I will probably have use for it eventually anyway. Too bad I didn't discover TOJ before I bought a bunch of jackets last year. :/

 The label is currently a three-man operation based in Seoul, South Korea, consisting of Drew Keith, Daniel Han, and Charly Joung. Drew is generally the mastermind behind the operation, with Dan and Charly helping with the day-to-day operations. Throughout it's history, Drew has remained very open to input on current and future projects for TOJ, often taking votes and pre-orders to see what products and designs his customers would like to see next. Drew has expressed his desire to push the limits with TOJ and turn it into a full-fledged collection; and though forum members' fondness of original TOJ designs prevail, he is constantly retiring old models of his products (TOJ is already on the fourth iteration of it's popular varsity jacket) in favor of more season-appropriate wear with improved quality and production methods.

 

I just found an article about ToJ from 2010. It's kind of sad to read now that ToJ stands before its end.

Reading through the thread and I must say that it's a more captivating read than I thought it would be. I started reading strictly for information but it's interesting to see how this thing has developed. Anyway, I found this...

They're up for order already, some guy already copped one today. Lamb is pliable, it stretches out a bit, shrinks back in naturally. It's fine unless you get it skin tight (which is not recommended anyway)


For the 3-zip DR and the collared Moto, lamb will be the best, in fact from now on I'm gonna only offer certain jackets in certain materials and this jacket will be lamb-only. Calf is too tough for some of the detailing like the banding around the cuffs and collar. It's just too thick and hard for something like that.

It'd be nice in suede, too, suede is doable.

Now it's obviously possible to get the MDR in calf, so when and why did this change? Was it simply because people begged for it or was it because Drew changed his mind about it for some reason?

This almost makes me want to reconsider my choice, not quite though since the MDR in olive calf that's i the archive looks good to me. I am curious about the reasons though.

I need to check my vision. :/ Olive DR with gunmetal: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=3710&g2_serialNumber=3

Doesn't look bad. I still think I prefer silver though, possible that gunmetal will look better once the jacket is beaten up enough. I really think the olive calf will look great after a good ammount of abuse too.
