The new official TOJ thread, 2011 - Page 277

^^ Wow, really illustrates body type variation. I'm 6'1", 180, and the mediums fit great.

Yeah I tried a large in the oxford and the shoulders were too small. I'm big boned but skinny

The shirts are nice as fuck. I'm 6'1 and 155 lbs and it is basically impossible to find an OTR shirt that fits. Medium fits great.

It's been a stressful week so these pics suck donkey balls, but shirts don't get enough love in this topic so I took a few quickies:




Notice you can see my tshirt underneath in this pic, it's not because the fabric is thin but because my apartment is a cavern and I'm standing next to a lightbulb like a dork. I've tried tons of white shirts and this is the least see-through I've ever had.


Shit even the buttons are beefy.

I am so fuckin hyped for my QDR

Sorry if it's been asked before, but has there been a pic of the sand tan leather posted?

Both are great in their own way. My 2010 DR gets the most stares out of all the ToJ pieces I own. I'm still waiting on the Minimalist so I can't comment on the piece yet.

Not that I recall, just a PS'd one.

Not too many people have ordered colors that are not that popular ie sand tan, dark royal.

First, the fabric is great. Not sure what type of weave it is, but it is much lighter than I expected, perfect for summer weather. Fairly wrinkle resistant, I can tumble dry it for a minute then hang without needing to iron for work, although it is not as good as the oxfords were in this department, but their wrinkle fighting power was really uncanny. The placket, collar, and cuffs are still substantial though due to extra fabric being used there.

The fit is pretty great, I love the high riding shoulders. Sleves are slim but allow just aough room to roll above the elbow, which I do a lot. I would prefer the body to be slightly slimmer, but that should be easily fixed by increasing the already present darting.

If I had to change one thing, I would like a slightly taller collar. I'm not sure that it's the shirt I would go to if I needed to wear a tie, but I don't normally wear a tie so it's ok with me.

The buttons are the same as the oxfords and the nicest you will ever find.

This will be my go-to shirt for work for the forseeable future, and once I get it tailored it will be great for casual untucked fits as well.

For reference I'm 6'2 180, 42 chest, and went with an xl.

Good job Drew! I'm coming back for a minimalist dr in black lamb!

Alright, so we did a small shipping lot today, stuff is still on the turn out, everything is as normal over here. My gf left for Japan again so I've got some time alone to work on a lot of stuff, got some things I've been meaning to do on the computer as well stuff I'm working on for later. I got some real spring/summer non-leather stuff I'm wanting to make, just organizing how I will do that as they're a little non-traditional and I'm gonna have to hunt down some low-paid help to help me with arts and crafts. I'm gonna have more time to work on the threads again as well. I have to take a nap right now though, been all over half the country today and it's time for bed.

I need a cool nonsensical but still kind of relevant Engrish-y name to replace TOJ. I am gonna do some changes and morph it a bit by the end of summer.

Let the Great Name Debate, Pt. Deux begin.

I say you skip logic and go the Diet Butcher Slim Skin route - aka, words that you think sound good together. Actually, don't. It'll end up being "Curry E-Cups Butter Whiskey."

Also, if anyone got a card holder before the run ended and wants to sell it, hit me up.
