here we go. i'm still new to this and not much of an online guy, so excuse me. what the is the excella zip? i've noticed in photos there are two types of zippers. one looks like a delicate ball and chain, while the other is a "solid" zipper. my order was placed less than a month ago and i've since realized i need to make an alteration, after feedback from the forum. im bent on having to bother charly at all after getting an order in this late in the game, so i'm trying to figure out any and all alterations that need to be made. im actually trying to purchase a MDR as close to my size i can find, just so i can make the appropriate adjustment.

Excella is a line of luxury YKK zippers. They zip smoothly, have individually polished teeth, and have a more delicate feel than the heavy Made in Japan YKK zippers that TOJ traditionally uses. 

 

 

The normal zips are great quality though. Very rugged with an industrial feel to them. 

 

All of the current jackets come with the spherical pull tabs for the pocket zippers.

Can't believe I'm making a complete 180 and am now considering another ToJ in addition to my bomber. It'll mean no PS4 or going out money for a long time. frown.gif


Anyway, considering a calf MDR, but can't decide between medium whiskey or oxblood. The former would look better with jeans and t-shirt and would be a more dramatically different color from my brown lamb bomber, but at the same time the oxblood is so pretty... inlove.gif

do the excellas have a different shape to them, or is it just a matter of polish?

PS4 will be around for years and will get cheaper, but ToJ will be be gone soon...

What's the price on the excella upgrade again?

Is there a big size difference between the regular and the excella zipper teeth? I think I just noticed this.

Can't really go wrong with either, the medium whiskey looks like a great color but oxblood 4-zip MDR would be awesome. Silver hardware would really pop on that color.

Get a TOJ and you will get a girlfriend too. And you won't need a PS4. And you will be broke forever. :D
