    You are viewing one (1) drool-worthy TOJ collared moto in dark whiskey calf with silver hardware. This jacket hearkens back to a simpler time. A time of joy and contentment when TOJ was still the reigning monarch of MTM leathers, promises were kept, dreams were realized.

    Two items of note:

    1) This is a used jacket. Take a good look at the photos for a couple of marks (not noticeable unless you're looking up close), signs of wear, and an interior pocket modification. This is the condition of the jacket. Embrace it.

    2) This is an unspeakably dope jacket. I'm finally coming to terms with being about a size too large for this thing. There's no other way I'd consider giving it up. It's a compliment magnet. You will get noticed wearing this jacket. You will get noticed getting noticed wearing this jacket. At the same time, it's extremely versatile; you can wear it with skinny jeans tucked into combat boots or with chinos, derbies, and an OCBD. Either way, you'll be the best-dressed person wherever you are,.

    Color is most accurate in the fit pic. My mediocre burner phone apparently has a somewhat mediocre camera when it comes to capturing colors.

    The interior chest pocket has been modified to remove the lip of leather that was absurdly uncomfortable (serious nipple chafing). It's still a functional pocket, and the modification was performed by a custom clothier. The point where the lip met the edge of the leather is still visible from the outside, but this should go away with further wear (or you can wet the leather down and hand stretch it).

    Measurements are as follows, bearing in mind that a) I'm in no way a pro at this kind of thing and b) the leather is pretty damn thick and stiff, which makes measuring more of a best effort than an exact science. All measurements were taken along the front with the jacket lying flat (except the back length, obvs).

    shoulders: 17.25
    chest: 19.5
    mid: 17.5
    sweep: 18.75 (more like 19 if I try to measure along the curve)
    shoulder to cuff: 25.25
    pit to cuff: 19.25
    armhole: 9.25 (this is a really difficult measurement to get since it's along a curved seam, so YMMV)
    cuff: 4.25 (this one's kind of tricky on account of the thickness of the leather and the zipper, but the jacket is from before they started doing wider sleeve openings)
    front length (along placket): 22.25
    back length (from base of collar along back seam): 25

    For reference, I'm 6'1" and in the 155 - 160 lbs range. I've done a few too many pull-ups (see custom title), and while most of the dimensions fit me well the chest is a little snug and the armholes are a little high (this is probably accentuated by my really sloping shoulders; it may be less of an issue for someone more square-shouldered).

    Price includes CONUS shipping via USPS priority mail with tracking, insurance, and signature confirmation (you can opt out of signature confirmation at your own risk). Selling in as-is condition, and all sales are final. International buyers feel free to inquire, but expect a hefty boost in price and potential customs fees; it has to be marked at full value in order to be insured for that amount.

    PM with questions, comments, or recipes.

    Blah. I ordered that exact jacket from ToJ -- guess seeing your photos is the closest I'll get to seeing it...good luck with sale.
