Someone should order a black bomber with a python patch. Would look badass and I'm sure there's enough left.

yeah, this. People can't even measure themselves for a TOJ1 without making it incredibly difficult, and people still ask about half inches and stuff on the most casual jackets - suits are not going to happen. I had originally planned to make something like that years ago, before anything was made, but how naive I was....

On the topic of new clothes...Drew - any plans to make shoes? Boots mainly...

no shoes for TOJ. Mostly likely the TOJ range will not get any bigger than leather jackets and coats.

But the wallets and bags??? Been waiting for over a year for them to be made shog[1].gif

Ah! Can't decide which jacket I want.

post #8664 of 44929

What is a good jacket that is stylish and casual... I don't want to give off too much of a biker vibe. Don't own a bike anyway.

I don't know about those either, wallets for sure are done, bags may or may not happen. Going to trim some fat and only produce stuff that stays truest to what I've always made - the best option in leather jackets and outerwear for style conscious people who care about quality and recognize the value on their own. There are a lot of things built into the clothes that people may never understand, even if they're buying TOJ stuff. I do know that it may difficult to ever see things like this again, if TOJ goes by the wayside. I put stuff into the pieces that I don't talk about, sometimes even Dan doesn't know what makes up 100% of the finished product. Way too much work for me explain all of the recipes sometimes anyway, so it's better to simplify things and let it be 'leather jacket' or 'wool coat' and have that be that. No need to question, just know that I've put the goods into it already so you don't need to.
One thing I do know is that you will be able to pull these things out of your closet and feel it looks fresh, even in like 2015. Look at jaac and tell me if that's just not a really fucking nice piece of clothing. It took me two or three days of scrolling past that pic to realize that myself, and I've worn that actual jacket, but two years of just constantly looking at nice leather jackets has turned me numb and I forget how I used to feel when I saw a nice leather jacket. Now it's like, that level as a default, in my eyes. (that's good for you dudes buying stuff from me, but personally I don't even buy clothes for myself anymore because it's always disappointing how much they cost and how few brands have much quality or value built into them - that's kind of the genesis of me exploring bespoke suits lately)

Anyway, yeah, I'm not setting out to make some of everything. I can't do that. I don't have cheap labor or materials, in fact it's really expensive. For what the Uncontrol Rider cost me in materials it should've actually been priced at like, $2400 or something, to make for a safe margin over the cost, but obviously that wasn't gonna happen, and also I'm not giving him the entire anaconda, he's just getting some of it, even though I have to buy the whole thing and figure out what I'm gonna do with it later.
The price of TOJ stuff has remained the same for a year or more now and been essentially the same all along, for what goes into the stuff, but that's because there's only been a maximum of 3 people here, now two. That is why it's different than the typical product that keeps rolling down the hill, snowballing in markup and people's outstretched hands. Sometimes I'd like to see my own stuff in stores, etc, but that goes against a lot of what I've tried to do all along.

Is there an emoticon to express guilt? frown.gif

I know you gave me a steal of a price on that jacket and I really appreciate it. If it had been $2400 I don't know if I would have gone along with it, even if it was worth it. That aside, I hope you'll like the end result enough to ease your pain a bit.

As for the anaconda: I'm tellin' you man, bomber with anaconda patch.

Well, the Uncontrol Rider isn't so much to my taste in theory obviously, but it's a worthy challenge if there ever were one. It's your original design and I respect that, a lot more so than the propositions of making some half-baked CCP or Julius ripoff thing. When it comes to the Uncontrol RIder, I'm like a matchmaker, and you have given me a bunch of info to narrow down the final product to your expectations... wheres the guys who have mistakenly viewed my leather jacket project as being some sort of CCP/Julius thing, that's like them asking for a blonde and me only ever having brunettes on offer, because I have a brunettes service or something. It'll just never work in theory.
