I have a brown lamb MDR and a navy lamb QMDR.

I'm looking to get a 2010 DR made but struggling on the build. Any suggestion on a non-black material?

Second that.

 

Refrained from posting so far, but at 45 weeks too (very early July), any form of update would be nice.

 

I know how much you guys hate this but I think some people would like to know that apart from regular posters, they're not all alone. (Especially the ones at 40+)

Careful now... last time I brought this up I was chastised for having unfair expectations of the m2m experience.

44 weeks and 20 weeks... and losing patience with the lack of transparency.

June 30th order, whatever that puts me at.

 

Some type of update would be really nice.

 

I'm not holding my breath for an estimate of when I actually might receive this thing.

Clearly none of you guys have ever made any kind of investment - you're all getting so sweaty about waiting for a great piece. I'm just like... pay the man, forget about it, get a nice surprise treat a year later. You ever invested in your retirement? You can't get antsy about that because that won't kickback until way way way later. You think waiting a year for something good is bad? Damn, son(s).

Honestly I'm not in the 40+ week crowd (im around 20) but I think it would just be pretty easy to post "The batch including orders from X-through-X days will be shipped on X date"
post #39732 of 42655

we didn't even get to see that many pictures from the last batch that shipped  ;_;

post #39733 of 42655

Anyone have an estimate as to how many of the past pages are dedicated to people noting how long the wait has been? Like 200 or so? 400?

A more accurate comparison would be, you're 61 and just made an investment for when you retire at 67.  You had everything planned because at 67, your "investment" would mature and that's when you're expected to cash in and enjoy your retirement so you make a list of places to go, things to see/do, etc.  You are excited and you eagerly countdown the days until you retire.  Then when you think you're close, the government comes around and tells you "retirement age is no longer 67.  It's now estimated to be upwards of 73" without much detail explaining the exact year you can retire.  You look and ask around and you find other people have been waiting as well.  A few years pass... and some are now 74, 75, 76...  and some who should have already retired a few years ago are now pushing 80 and they still don't even know when they'll actually be able to retire.  Some start guessing and some of them even start to create rumors, passing them as fact.  It creates confusion among the rest so people start to question and ask from the government when they'll be able to retire, only to be told by the loyal individuals to just forget about it and it'll eventually come as a nice surprise one year.

 

So yea, I don't think it's so much the wait that's bothering everyone.  It's the lack of information out there.

 

Now I'm far from close to getting mine.  I was originally given an estimate "about 6 months" which puts me around august/sept of this year.  However, it's looking more and more like I won't be getting mine until spring... possibly summer of 2015... which means I won't be able to wear it until late 2015 (18 months from now).  :cry:

wtf is even going on with this thread anymore? Are we really comparing ToJ jackets to retirement accounts?

To wangjt: you're not even anywhere near your aug/ sept deadline, and you're already anticipating a 1 year delay? Doesn't that seem a bit premature? Plus, when you ordered, there were presumably pages of people already noting the long wait times. Wouldn't you naturally take that into account?

I assume if your estimated delivery time is aug/ sept, you ordered in March. Kind of early to start hyperventilating.
