If you go back you can see Drew outline that the lamb suede patch doesn't look so good with goat.

Without going into particulars, I'm past my 1 Year Anniversary.

Out of curiosity, when was the last time someone actually received a jacket?

When Jesus was last resurrected

Seriously, though. I mean, it seems like it's been months of people speculating but I can't actually remember the last time I saw someone post about receiving anything.

Something's not right here...

I'm as anxious as the next person regarding my order, but to be fair, the last deliveries were in late-June/ mid-July, which wasn't that long ago. There was joona who received a varsity, and that nepats guy who received a jacket after calling Drew a snake. I'm sure there are a few others, but those come to mind most easily.

Oh, I got a CWU-45P a month or so ago. Maybe more like six weeks. My SO got her A2 at the same time. Took just over a year.

Must've missed those posts, good to know the jackets are still trickling out though. Thanks.

It'll be getting to you soon once the shipping is sorted."

That is, unless there's no one qualified to take photos and send emails either.

I ordered a coat in January '14 and another in March '14, if people from June of 2013 haven't received anything but promises and reassurances, I'm not holding my breath on getting anything till mid 2015.

 

Agreed. A friend, family member or an assistant on minimum wage would have been able to ship the jackets out if there was indeed a finished goods inventory being held.

 

I think it is obvious that Drew has invested not only the profits generated by whatever margin he runs on these items, but also the entire revenue from ToJ, into his new business venture. Production has slowed to a trickle (if not stopped) due to him simply not being able to afford to pay for the manufacture of the goods. He is relying on profits from the restaurant (if there are any) or personal funds to come in in order to fund production. ToJ served its purpose for him as an investment vehicle and now that it is exhausted, delivery of the items is a liability and a low priority.

 

People with jackets paid for on order can only hope that  his restaurant does well so that profits can go to finishing up Drew's last liabilities he holds to ToJ customers. I have seen (as I am sure many others have) this pattern of behavior in many other start up entrepreneurial ventures where the owner's access to the business funds are misused creating operational issues. There is no sound business excuse for the operational issues ToJ is currently facing.

 

Hopefully Drew's high visibility due to his social media presence and ownership of the restaurant, which he is no doubt heavily invested into, keeps him motivated towards ensuring everyone who paid for a ToJ item gets it.

[12+ month wait] + [being out $1600+] = a real bad time cold[1].gif

I just shipped off my lamb A2 that I've had for 2 years. Measurements taken before selling:

shoulders:16"
p-2-p: 19"

Went back and check original email with Charly. Measurements suggested and agreed on:

shoulders 16.5"
chest (pit-to-pit) 20.0"

Reason for selling: too tight! It didn't stretch much after all this time.

Just my anecdote.

This guy received his wool MA-1 in late June after ordering in August 2013. I also ordered a wool MA-1 in August 2013 and I just passed my 1 year anniversary...

That's just what I've heard fro Charlie. As any of us I have no idea what is the real state of my jacket. It could be true our money has been spent into those leather sofas Drew was so exited about. I ordered dr2010 at july and received it on february but the measurements were off. Guys promised to make me a new jacket and at that point I changed it to dr2013. Now I have been waiting for replacement jacket about half a year.

Why the fuck would anyone want to do that?
