    people really need to stop looking at jackets that are a classic silhouette and saying "looks like toj" as if toj invented the ma-1

    you are reading that too literally, its not only about the "looks" like toj but quality is prob different level too (possibly lower) hence the comment

    tried a recent season stooges and the 54 fit like a 52, and RO doesn't make a 56 afaik.

    any leathers with a slim silhouette (a la RO) that tend to work for bigger dudes?

    i'm just saying it looks like the toj lamb ma-1? i can't do that? of course i know toj bases their designs off other pre existing jackets.

    at first glance i was just mentioning the looks can be comparable, though this is made of calf. it's a new piece for s/s 14 and i thought it was pretty clean.

    They look pretty different to me, other than being black leather ma-1's.



    edit:
    Does anyone feel a bit iffy on leather MA-1 jackets in general? I always seem to like the idea more than the execution. Not sure if its the lack of filling or what.

    Yeah, I like MA-1s for the poofyness, slim ones or leather just feel flat

    Random RO sizing question for you gurus. I read online @ places such as Porter to size down 1, but I don't always trust it.

    I'm 5'6" and weigh around 130 pounds. I wear 44 in Dior, SLP, Jil etc. Should I do 46 in RO? I'm ordering online, but can always return just rather not face the hassle.

    I love my leather ma-1, can wear it casually with joggings or wear it with dress trousers and smart shoes, probably the ToJ I wear the most.

    Haha. If only it were that simple. It depends on the season, the piece in question, and how the half-blind sewers at Omar&Mirta were feeling that day... I had to size up one in my leather but I've tried on others where you had to size down one.

    also depends on how long you can tolerate the sleeves

    Oh no, I had a feeling this might be the case! I was looking at a hooded piece on MrP, but I notice also the comment below about the long sleeves. I don't think I can handle too long of sleeves; I'm generally into a precise cut. Hmm.

    thats been mostly my exp with ro, xs/44 is too tight in the shoulders and biceps and s/46 fits better up top yet still snug but sleeves are just too long
    some people like the sleeve staxxx so maybe you would too, but not for me, too short to make it look good

    TOJ makes nice jackets, but there are a ton crap of makers that do a better job, particularly for traditional jackets like aviators or motos. Brands like Aero, Alexander, Himel bros. make spectacular jackets from high quality letters leathers that TOJ just doesn't have access to. Prices are a little higher, and they don't tend to allow for much customization. Also, many of the models tend to be built for more average builds. TOJ clearly has a place bridging the gap between good design and good leather and make, but there are places they could improve, long wait times notwithstanding, regular contracts with tanneries like Horween, for example.

    Of course, all this would incur additional overhead, and drive prices up.
