If you guys want the cafe racer model rather than the DR it's not too hard to find the actual jacket on the secondhand market for similar prices to the MTO project:

Anyone have a recommendation between a TOJ Quilt DR vs. BLK DNM #31? I currently have the BLK DNM #5, but I always wear it open and I don't like the belt. Thanks.

this http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/blk-dnm-leather-jacket-31-leather-moto-jacket/3527341?origin=category-personalizedsort&contextualcategoryid=0&fashionColor=&resultback=152&cm_sp=personalizedsort-_-browseresults-_-1_1_A vs a TOJ ??? go with the TOJ too much quilting on the blk denim. Don't forget you are comparing a RTW to a MTM jacket that will fit you better due to it being tailored to your body.

Right now TOJ wait time is all over the place so why don't you check the Vanson group buy styleforum is having here http://www.styleforum.net/t/387175/vanson-styleforum-thurston-bros-slim-fit-japanese-double-rider-mto#post_7080295
It has everything you want but no quilts which i think you can live with.

Love my blk denim 31. The design is waaaaaay cooler. The ToJ quilted design does not cut it imho. Btw One year of beating the blk dnm it looks even better!

I happened to be in Shibuya, and bought the Junya. It's a touch small - tight to zip up the tummy area but it's really nice. Thick leather and great styling. And they were having a 15% sale today. Still pricey but it's probably in lieu of my second TOJ now.

Whoa, SF missed connections, totally saw you trying that on while I was avoiding doing work - looked fantastic on you!

Do you live here or just visiting?

You should also get some customs back at the airport.

lol goddamn I was going to say that BLK DNM jacket isn't that bad until I saw it from behind. Sheesh.

 

At the same time it's hard to recommend TOJ with the wait times.

A bit irrelevant but I also found some NOS Junya Watanabe x Trickers boots.

These if anyone's interested
