The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 2652

post #39766 of 43190
my vent about the TOJ newbies was a bit outta hand, it just seems that the members who have been here for years and have literally watched TOJ start from nothing and grow into what it is now, are more forgiving and understanding about the wait time and the state of the operation today. the noobs are just centered on the fact that they paid $800 for a jacket that they should have received sooner. which is totally understandable and not out of line in a sense, theres just a lack of appreciation in the whole process/operation that can be a bit frustrating for somebody like me. i feel like it will ruin the chances of future projects with drew, or at least make him more weary about the interactiveness of his products. i always loved the fact that the he pretty much catered to us, instead of having everything be so cut and dry. ie; the uncontrol rider, secret menu, leather ma1 and pretty much the whole MTM process.

^just because their accounts may recently be created doesn't mean they haven't been following TOJ from the beginning man..

 don't give a fuck about the wait time. just order it and forget it exists. then you come home to a pleasant surprise one day (hopefully you haven't moved after you forgot about it)

I'm just disappointed that people reacted negatively to a suggestion that the crew keep the thread/customers updated on things that affect production/queue times. I'm sure that even a post describing the current attitude towards the queue would also put some people at ease. Like, "we've been watching the line, and so far we're comfortable with the pace we're going at" or whatever the case is.

Some people don't post their concerns because they don't want to bother with the guys who'll react emotionally/protectively (especially from the guys who haven't placed an order for a year or so).

Are you getting a blowie with your jacket or something?

Fanboyism is outta control right now.

Guess people have to find ways to justify the lead times to themselves.

you haven't even gotten your jacket yet and you're already showing lack of appreciation.

Clark Kent you are seriously mentally unwell.

If I was this Drew guy, I would take out a restraining order against you.

You need to release the man's nuts from your mouth

I feel you man !
 
I do hope it comes soon though. Living down here, winter's 2 weeks away for us (though it's already starting to get very cold) and I need a new jacket. 
 
The "buy a new jacket because I don't have a decent one" vs "wait for my TOJ to show up soon" balance is tough.. After 10+ months, every next week could be the one :)

1 post actually.

 

Was following the thread long before I placed an order and apart from asking about sizing (which I just E-Mail Charly about) or complaining about wait times (which won't make my jacket come any quicker), there didn't seem to be any reason to post.

 

So if me refraining from complaining about the wait for the past 45 weeks or posting every time I thought about changing my colours and zippers and lining decreases my legitimacy so be it.

Burn this thread to the ground

what the fuck
post #39776 of 43190

I'm so glad I unsub'ed from this thread a few months ago

 

Came in hear to laugh though and I sure got a good one

Maybe they shouldn't have announced a cut off to begin with. 

post #39778 of 43190
just for fun how about people post:

- when they ordered
- what they ordered
- if you could get one more jacket (excluding discontinued models), what would it be?


me:

- payment confirmed mid-february
- brown lamb a2 and medium whiskey calf mdr w/ silver zips on queue (have also been on the fence about a black varsity)
- if i had the money for a third full leather it'd probably be either a 2013 dr or bcdr in black calf w/ gunmetal zips

I think the content in this thread would be better if those complaining about 40+ lead times had received their jacket by now.  Can't post photos of a jacket you haven't received.

Didn't Drew just open his new restaurant? Pretty sure this is crunch time for him and his crew, making final adjustments and whatnot.
