Never saw any that particularly interested me.
Never really ever crossed my mind as something to buy.

They must put something in the water here at SF...TOJ koolaid, in a good way.

No hate to Unc, but he really does have the most posts in this thread out of everyone with no ToJ gear.

uncontrol, I'm the yang to your yin. Here's something to counter-balance a snakeskin DR... TOJ can also make stuff for old geezers like me

The dark olive color is better than I expected - lambskin is room-temperature butter - fit is spot on - three thumbs up

well that might be a bit much (and would cost like $20,000)

I was the same, didn't really see the point in owning a leather jacket. Didn't think it suited me. Just got my moto and I'm loving it. Will order a blouson soon and after that I'll probably get a bomber.

nearly everyone can wear a leather jacket. I mention leather jackets to people I meet in real life and they often go 'oh, leather is edgy' or 'leather jackets don't suit me' but I think with most people who say that, it's just a matter of fit and the design of the jackets themselves. For example, Funksy's jacket looks like one of those jackets that will look good in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, and so on. I want you dudes to remember this exact post (and hopefully imageshack or whatever is still running) so you can google this and see if I'm not right in the future. (cue twilight zone theme)

I think so. If they're fake MOP, they're good fakes.

Yup. I also think because I visit this thread so much, I buy more than I should. I originally just want a brown leather. Then I thought black would be cool too. Then it was all downhill.

I'm guessing the closest thing to ToJ in term of slim fitting style would be Margiela, and that costs close to or over a grand. (Not factoring in used stuff). Kinda too rich for my blood.

$1,000 is my threshold for anything clothe related...shoes, jackets, etc. I'm going to have a hard time dropping over that amount on one piece of clothing except for LV bags and fine watches.

I've never spent more than a G myself on a piece of clothing or an accessory, barring watches, except twice, once was last week - but most of my clothing and stuff has retailed at fairly high prices. If I were on the other side of the counter here, in same situation to buy TOJ goods like anyone else, I'd be relishing it. I try to make it a welcoming proposition; sometimes there are mistakes, sometimes the communications fail, but I try to make it so that each thing made is treated as a piece of art for one person. It's like having a restaurant; you don't want to send out a bad oyster or something, I have to treat it in that way. BTW those are indeed real MOP buttons on that jacket. The OCBDs have Trocas shell buttons, the dress shirts (of which we made only a very few) had MOP buttons, the Harrington and Baseball jackets are MOP. I don't think I've put anything but trocas, MOP, bullhorn, or ebony on anything I've made so far, actually.

Yea, I did have some pre-conceived notions that leather jackets were a bit "edgy" and I wasn't sure at all if I could "pull it off". My style is pretty understated. Nothing flashy, just try to get good fitting clothes. So, when I first saw the double rider, I just thought it looked nice, but for the uber-stylish, etc.

Fast-forward a few months...going out, started noticing leather jackets everywhere. But noticed that most were ill-fitting or just OK. So, I thought to myself, if they people can walk around in bad looking or fitting leather jackets...damn, I can definitely swag out with some ToJ.
