I just got home from the gym, bros...lol. I had to jump in the shower before even trying the jacket on. It's been a good week: This jacket, Indy Oxford, 2 pairs of Margielas, and a TaT suit. Edit: Suppose to rain here for the next several days. I will try to take pictures of the jacket and the peacoat on my next day off from work, Monday.
I dropped off a blazer at the tailor shop and saw a nice brown leather bomber hanging on a rack. I had to find out who was the maker so I touched the jacket. So nice leather. I looked for the label, it was indeed by toj!
haha that's mine, dropped my bomber off yesterday at stanton so they can equip it for a shearling collar
Damn it that whiskey looks f-ing nice...reaaaal nice. Clean yourself up and get some fits in there haha. Willy thought I should kick it whiskey style, but no one else chimed in when I asked for some thoughts so I assumed no one wanted to see me order and post some fits upon arrival. Now you're the new whiskey bomber on the block. What sizes did you get and do you have a bomber in all colorways now? I was trying to decide between brown and whiskey lamb and here you go getting both haha. Did they come with any of the buttons for collars even though no actual collars?

yeah, mine was the old style bomber w/o the fur collar. the guys at the temple had one made up for me, $25 shipped together with recent moto order. just had to get the buttons put in on the bottom of the inside collar so it'll fit, I'll throw up some pics when I pick the jacket up next week
That black leather sample I snagged, the leather seems a lot softer and has some sheen as opposed to a new brown lamb bomber I received. Are the lamb leather properties different between black and brown or was the black possibly washed or conditioned?
Hey Drew, I was actually the one wondering about this. Tonio was nice enough to let his bomber go to me since he's reordering one in a colorway more suited to his wardrobe, and I wanted to double-check if there was any conditioning/washing done to the leather. From the photos that tonio has put up, the texture of it looks different than that of the standard black lamb in other fit pics. I'm not sure if that's the case or not, since I'm pretty new with nice leathers. I just wanted to double-check so that I can properly care for such a beautiful piece, or at least avoid completely wrecking it on accident. Warning: Spoiler!(Click to show)
Yeah, I was thinking that there was a possibly that it was washed, since it has wrinkles in different places than I'm used to seeing. I think I remember seeing a leather in the last sample sale that had been washed, so I was wondering whether or not it was the case with this one as well.
Tonio, I think if not the baseball jacket, you should get something like a grey Collared Moto.
I need me that brown bomber though fo' sho'. As much as I love that grey collared moto, the bomber kept calling my name. The only problem is that might negate my future purchase of the suede A-1 as much as I love that one, different styles I know, but I think that would be too much bomber variation no?
I still like that baseball jacket style and am waiting for your sizing chart to evaluate it. You mentioned you were slimming the model down right? I love the navy and thinking a grey version would even be sick.
