TOJ - updates on the debacle, complaints, news about other ventures, whatever. - Page 1285post #19261 of 545165/2/12 at 3:48pmJust put in my order for the 2010 dr bottle green calfskin, I love the dark whiskey calfskin moto, I actually don't think it needs to be anymore pliable. It feels so comfortable and I've only worn it a day, love the thickness of the leather. It's what I think of when you look think of a quality leather good.

I am not sure I want to bring that one back. The guy who makes these jackets never fully understood what I wanted to do with that jacket and made it about 85% my way and 15% his way, and I don't like his way on that piece. We have done so well together on pretty much all of the things we've made without that kind of differential, and we just made more prototypes if I didn't like something. On that BCDR though, I wanted to do something different with the quilt detailing but he couldn't get his mind around it... I forget sometimes, because the guy is really talented, or perhaps I should say really skilled at what he does and he's earned it with time, but he's not a rocket scientist either; we have our moments where perfection seems further away than it should be....
I'm a big fan of the bcdr because it brings together various aspects of other jackets that you've made that I like: The banded hem of the cm/Mdr, the moto snaps, rider lapels, the quilting and assymetric line running up the front of the jacket, which are both exclusive to this model, and the really attractive panelling on the sleeve between the upper and lower arm quilting. (seriously, I admire this a lot on my toj1's sleeves.) It seems like you let a lot of your personal creativity come out and do it's thing to make a jacket unlike any other on the market.
I mean, there are a ton of details going into it, but everything feels balanced - including the details on the back. On the sleeves, there's that space between the lower quilting and upper quilting, which some people complained about, but I think as it softens, that goes away, and with even more wear, develops those really attractive hard wear creases... like a canvas to showcase individual wear.
Others have done bcdrs, but I think you took a lot of your strengths from designing your other jackets and put them into your interpretation of the bcdr, and that led to a very handsome, aggressive jacket made with impressive material and skill.

Was planning on ordering an a2 in brown lamb but now thinking that the brown goatskin might be the better option
Really need to do my research on the qualities of goatskinpost #19265 of 545165/2/12 at 4:45pmpost #19266 of 545165/2/12 at 4:53pmpost #19267 of 545165/2/12 at 4:54pmpost #19268 of 545165/2/12 at 4:57pmI <3 my medium grey BCDR, although obviously it's quite a bit more subdued than the quilted model.
Kinda wish I had the opportunity to get a brown goat A-2 before the cutoff (I assume goat won't be an option after the reboot), but I'm sure there'll be even more drool-worthy stuff coming out when things are back up and running again.post #19269 of 545165/2/12 at 5:21pmQuote:
Yes, but the collar stays the same colour (so it no longer matches)
Goat is heavier, more textured. Creep Aeglus's tumblr for a good pic of the texture.post #19270 of 545165/2/12 at 5:22pmpost #19271 of 545165/2/12 at 5:50pmpost #19272 of 545165/2/12 at 6:04pmHave been looking through the thread for inspiration for my order(s) before the cutoff date. One thing I find interesting is Drew's view on leathers. Seems like he used to favor blacks and greys in lamb. More recently he's been pushing the goat and calf in different colors, including brown, green, and red. Seems like he's gravitating away from the goth ninja / Belgian palette and more toward the old-school 50s/60s traditional American style. Maybe this is what to expect from TOJ 2.0. Am I right Drew?post #19273 of 545165/2/12 at 6:06pmQuote:
I don't believe it has been mentioned, but you, me, and many others have a keen interest in the answer. Millions of lives hang in the balance.post #19274 of 545165/2/12 at 6:09pm
