Now I have been waiting for replacement jacket about half a year.

Damn, this doesn't bode well for me. I received my MDR a while back but there was an issue with the sleeve so I sent it back for repairs. That was just over 3 months ago now and I'm getting antsy. Didn't realise I'd have to wait so long just for a repair job. I know yours is a new jacket but I thought in situations like this you'd jump the queue.

How is waiting for a replacement jacket half a year EVEN FUCKING POSSIBLE?!

 

Like, it just blows my mind.

Because some people have quite a lot of money at stake (including opportunity cost), perhaps? When would you consider your money lost? When the jacket is 1 year overdue? 1.5 years? 3 years overdue?

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.

IIRC someone said it is recommended to take 0.5" smaller in the shoulder so it will stretch out comfortably.

I ordered my TOJ0 back in Oktober of 2013 and got quoted 15-20 weeks.

 

Sent an email out to Charly back in april and he said it would most likely be May--ish. Vague reply is vague.

 

Sent another in June cause no jacket - got a "I apologize on behalf of production side of things".

 

So yeah, major run-around and waiting.

 

I had forgotten about it until my GF asked if I had got that jacket I ordered last year lol.

 

So a new email is sent, let's see what it says this time.

"Haha remember that time you got scammed $800 for a chinese leather jacket."

"NO SHUT UP IM STILL IN THE QUEUE"

I ordered in November 2013 and asked yesterday about the status. Charly apologized for the production lag and told me that the jacket would probably arrive by the end of the year or early 2015. Let's just see if they actually pull through. I'm not going to back out now that I've waited almost a year.

Just give up.


It's not going to happen.

 

You have two choices:

Wait like a bitch.

Sell spot/add yourself to the refund queue.

To be able to make jackets and send said jackets to waiting people, Drew has to make teh moneys from his restaurant. For the restaurant to make money, perhaps people who are waiting for their jackets can spend some money going to Korea eating at said restaurant?

Anyway, speaking of jackets, if anyone is willing to sell a TOJO 2013 spot, I'm buying.
