    Posts like this are really unecessary imo.

    a, this is a discussion thread. ToJ is, at least in my mind, a collaborative brand with a unique connection and receptive relationship with its buyers. If this link were to be abolished, I think the brand appeal would be somewhat diminished (although many would would still buy undoubtedly, me included).

    b, the MA-1 is a PROTOTYPE. It's not like he's sitting on a mountain of these and we're pissing on the product he has to sell. A prototype is made to test the waters, to feel out market demand and the potential for sales success. Constructive, honest feedback on product viability, especially from the market actually looking to buy is often invaluable to the company that designs and releases the prototype.

    I mean, forget the unhelpful apologists, but who does it help to throw up categorical support on a proposed project without indicating the pros of production?

    Drew, you're a fucking awesome designer, I hope nothing here offends you, just putting my 2 cents in

    I think what was supposed to be a basic concept has proved itself too next level for some. I posted a response to artishard way back at the beginning that was basically the design concept equivalent of spreading legs on the first date, and still people complain.

    i mean it was cool for you to lift up your skirt and show your super 150s wool panties, but you should've thought of the people who prefer panties made of more technical fabrics

    At the end of the day, all I need to know is whether or not I can afford it.

    Color choices aside, I may have to pick up a 3rd MA-1.

    That will make it cotton, boiled wool, and Super 150...but may still hold out yet.

    Waiting for Drew's interpretation of a long coat / frock / whatever as long as its long in the body with a nice collar (no hood/removable). That day will come. I believe.

    See Drew, all you needed was a fit-pic to quench the woes of the naysayers.

    Is the full placket going to be a feature on the finalized jacket?

    Half placket on my bombers look sick unzipped. Just kinda curious why you'd go for full placket on this jacket (if that's the plan), and then go half on the leathers.

    i understand all of that, and i think people have a right to offer suggestions and voice their opinions, in as much as such a discussion is warranted. i understand why some people are frustrated or disappointed that drew isnt bringing back the ma-1 ae or whatever. but at the same time its been almost nonstop bitching about the fabric choice, with people struggling to come up with reasons to dissuade him from using wool, when he has made it pretty clear that hes not really interested in rehashing a nylon ma-1.
