    Those leathers look so incredibly sick, your offerings thus far have been really impressive, I can't think of any designer that has leathers that nice for that kind of money, I mean even Vincent & Vincent costs twice as much.

    Just too good, dismal. Not to mention i know what you're capable of when it comes to suiting and dress shirts plus the winter jacket, tech rain jacket , bags, and others.

    Wait, tech rain jacket? You mean the Harrington?

    I'm fully aware that buying clothes on the internet is a leap of faith, and this may sound like shilling, but I honestly think my leather jacket collection is possibly one of the best out there for any price, and I do have some experience with nice leather jackets. It'll be the best leather jacket you'll ever have, that's what I've designed it to be.

    I'll drop price points here:

    -1. Reversible slim fit MA1/Varsity jacket, one side in silk taffeta or gore-tex, and the other side in cashmere blend and lambskin - $299 shipped. A number of options are available, most all are no-cost.

    -2.1 and 2.2 TOJ moto and TOJ bomber leathers: $475-495 depending on leather and zipper configurations chosen. As shown, $475 shipped.

    -3. Harrington - one side gore-tex, other side plaid cotton or wool (i.e. suiting check, as pictured) and silk herringbone sleeves, OR, fully reversible, gore-tex one side and full reverse. $180 shipped.

    All prices shipped worldwide. My prices reflect EMS shipping from my home in Seoul, I personally check and package all pieces and provide tracking upon request.

    As my orders are all made to measure to fit you, it takes about a week to a week and a half to complete production of your piece, and then typically a few days for shipping, so total turnaround time to your doorstep is about 2 weeks, sometimes less and sometimes a little more depending on workload and the order you have given me.

    I am flexible and want to make you the clothes that you want, so for example, if you want a blue TOJ moto, talk to me and we'll find a way to do it.

    I have a TOJ varsity and I'm more than happy with it. Too bad I've only been able to wear it out at night twice so far because it's been too hot. Dismal/imployt is incredibly helpful and everything with the order, from customization to shipping, went well.

    Now it looks like I'll have to get a TOJ leather also.

    Could you discuss the (removable?) quilted lining option for the leathers, ie, how thick, added cost, etc? Ideally, show a sample?

    I'm gonna run most of this stuff for 1-2 months, but I plan to evolve my line through the seasonal changes so new stuff will pop up, old stuff will take a rest.

    And what Stylish Pilot can't wear a leather jacket?!? That's like a cowboy saying he's not sure about the boots and the hat...

    I have a TOJ varsity and I'm more than happy with it. Too bad I've only been able to wear it out at night twice so far because it's been too hot. Dismal/imployt is incredibly helpful and everything with the order, from customization to shipping, went well.

    Now it looks like I'll have to get a TOJ leather also.


    Thanks for your order, man. The Temple of Jawnz depends on the customers so it's always appreciated. I'm not sure which jacket you have in mind, but based on your build, I think the A2 bomber would work for you very well. The accordian arm scythes on the back give the back about 2-3 extra inches of give on both sides when you stretch your arms out, and then fold back in really neatly and flat when your back is straight and not flexed. It's a great cut for athletic people and I think we could tweak out a perfect fit now that you know your varsity size, the patterns are very very similar.

    can you explain the options for the a2? also is lambskin gonna be durable enough?

    For now, I can do black or brown. The leather is very delicate, it's not for beating up or rolling around on the ground on. If you do need a more durable option, we can go to cowhide for no additional cost. It'd be very stiff and different from the lamb I've pictured. I will say though, I've never seen lamb this rich or soft anywhere except for brands like RLPL, Hermes, that level. The more popular leather jacket brands, Rick, Julius, Dior, they have nothing on this lamb that I am using, and I've handled all of them.

    Could you discuss the (removable?) quilted lining option for the leathers, ie, how thick, added cost, etc? Ideally, show a sample?

    The quilted lining will not be removable, it'd be in place of the cupro lining that comes as standard. It'd be poly fill with a cotton or acetate facing, probably black. It would affect the inner fit slightly so one may want to size up, especially on the sleeves as my sleeves are cut aggressively slim.

    I don't have samples of every single option, I have standard stuff and then the options exist for those who want to take them. I don't go halfway though, if it's not to an overall standard I keep, I just wouldn't offer it, so trust that it will be good.

    Quilted instead of cupro would be free of charge. It'd make the jacket pretty damn warm though, strictly 1-season as opposed to 3.

    I cut patterns for each order, and then I place them with separate tailors who specialize in each kind of piece. Varsity jackets go with a guy who only makes varsity jackets for a living, the leathers go to a woman who makes leather jackets, etc. I plan to have a tailored line eventually and those will be bespoke, made by a good tailor that I have a relationship with, who does everything right as far as suits go.

    yes, I am gonna get fit pics of everything. My in-house photographer (girlfriend) went to bed tonight really early and upset because she's trying to seduce a straight girl into sleeping with her and her game isn't sticking for today, so she's not happy nor talking right now. Maybe tomorrow on the fit pics.
