    Are other suiting fabrics available for the MA-1? Or is it just wool suiting fabric, only reason I ask it says to inquire.

    Leather or wool MA-1 have your pick. Please let's get past this.

    I didn't mean color, I meant fabric like a black cotton/linen, more aesthetically I think it gives off depth in color than wool.

    I've heard it's pretty expensive to start a new thread, that's why they're all so long.

    "almost no fixed amount"

    I'm under the assumption the styleforum affiliate fee is very very very very very low in comparison to what designers brands would pay for marketing and/or running an online website.

    I work in the professional services (marketing for clients) side of an ecommerce company. Costs for running a site aren't particularly high, marketing is expensive, but ROI always makes it worthwhile. When ToJ finally do stop the mtm thing, they'd be missing out on a huge opportunity if they didn't build a dedicated ecommerce site.

    I think we can all agree that ToJ/JC's marketing is unconventional.

    Same with the order process. Who cares.

    The worst thing about ToJ jackets is finding worthy footwear to match with. Even a nice pair of KVA black hi-tops sits around $650 :(

    Drew just found a new supplier to help him meet the demand that he already has. I don't think he's super interested in growing a lot right now.

    Let's get the name change done first, huh :eek:

    A big impetus to step up my footwear game was my growing stable of TOJs, simple sneakers work best I think :)

    I did my best Drew Keith suede harrington sample photo impersonation yesterday. Felt good man. Blue suede harrington + light blue OCBD + lighter washed jeans + MMM.

    People find the lamb suede more fascinating than the regular lamb FWIW.

    I really hope one of the new offerings isn't a comeback of the DR vest cause I'd have to buy that.
