I waited 4x weeks and got a wrong order

I am kind of glad I am joining the military and don't have to deal with this for the next n years. Hopefully when I return things are sorted out and we either have a reboot or a good alternative to ToJ

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.gif
this is exactly what it feels like is going on. No info no updates and wait times seem to be going from bad to worse. I hit the 6 month marker a while back and there is still no end in sight. Not even close.

I sent out an email lastnight to templeofjawnz to start my order for a TOJ 4-Zip MDR but I haven't gotten a reply.

Wanted to get the process started, got my measurements and all, but nothing so far.

How responsive is TOJ?  Is it Charly that answers the emails?

I received an answer quite fast. Still not sure of model/leather/colour though. Too many choices!

When did you email them?  What email did you use?

Have you narrowed down the model/style you're getting?  Calf/Lamb/Goat?

I'd pay for four digits to get a collared motto with a few changes easily tweaked here, and there......

Not at all. Horse looked very tempting too, so will need some time to consider.

Okay, I get it, I get it.
