All of my Tojs are black except for my peacoat, including the ones that are in the queue now. I have a bunch of John Elliot + Co and MMM tees in white, black and gray, and Geller seconds tanks that I'd layer underneath, and Saint Laurent, MMM, and Zam Barrett overdye black denim, and Guidi and two pairs of MMM black zip boots.

Basically a monochrome outfit with luxe brands I guess if that's what you want to call them. I wear the same stuff with my other leather (black calf 5-zip).

Oh that's right. Not to sound creepy or anything but I think I saw that on your instagram once which I think I got from the gallery haha.

 

Just for discussion sake I used to REALLY REALLY want this jacket a couple of years ago. http://mrsfc.com/collection/all-holiday-2011/mr-varsity-fleeced-galaxy-denim/

 

Picture for those who don't want to go to the link lol. Now that I look back thank god I didn't get it. First of all looking at the price, I think I'd feel robbed if I bought it. Obviously it comes nowhere close to TOJ and idk how much I would have actually liked it if I actually did get it. Looking at it now it looks slightly off to me. The toj0 is just so far ahead in everything. They also used to have a wool/leather version but now all they have is the denim/leather. This is why I think I have a soft spot for the toj0 haha. The jacket style is always something I've really liked. Instead I opted for a full leather DR to experience it. If I had more time a TOJ0 would be copped immediately.

I usually wear a white t shirt or oxford underneath (black moto), with black, or little to no faded indigo jeans, and black chelsea boots or blacked out high top converse. I personally really like sized up white/black airism t-shirts the most to go with the jacket. That drape, and slight shine from them is nice. Sometimes at home, I'll wear the jacket with no top underneath. :bigstar:

Can anyone attest to their opinion of bemberg vs sateen lining?

post #37808 of 41235

Just bought a used black lamb MDR with silver zips and thinking about trading out the hardware for blacked out, any one happen to know if a leather tailor would be able to take care of that?

Have both, bemberg is nicer to the touch, but you probably won't notice the difference unless you are looking for it.

Don't do it, you will regret it later. Silver looks so much better.

Crap, didn't think I'd post this but having a real hard time deciding between moto and dr2013, and to a lesser extent 4 zip mdr.  

 

edit/

dr2013 :devil:  ...or 4 zip mdr? ...or qdr? fuuu

 

Not tryna get into zipper talk but are the excellas the same size/as chunky as the normal silvers?  Chunky > but I also like shiny stuff soo....just wondering

I'd go with the DR or MDR, but that's just personal preference.

I looked at your instagram after you just posted pics of the pen and saw your tattoo and description. 

 

Your grandpa is a pretty legendary dude in certain circles. I stumbled upon his colossus of roads boxcar work online a few years ago after watching a street art documentary (I think?) and really liked it. It affected and inspired me. Would love to see his stuff in person some day.

 

Sick tattoo too. Very cool, I love shit like that.

I used to paint trains in the '90s. That's your grandfather? The husband to the grandmother who gave you that pen?

buz blurr's wife gave cole a precious pen and he sold it.

 

 

holy shit

I'm 27, first year doctoral student. I have no idea if I fit any general "style" to be honest; I just like wearing clothes that are cut slim and have a tailored look, but are also interesting...while erring on the conservative side. Wardrobe's a grab-bag of Watanabe, CdG, Rag & Bone, RLBL, J. Crew, J. Press... Got into shoes over the past couple of years, so it's mostly Alden, Carmina, Meermin. Hoping to add a couple of Crockett & Jones by the end of the year.
