    What's the big deal about RiRi zips vs. stock YKK? Do they really look/handle that much different?

    the stock YKK zips are beefy as hell. i love them on my A2. no reason to change them up in my opinion.

    one nitpicky thing tho...the zipper is on the left side when i have the jacket on...all my other jackets the zipper is on the right. why does TOJ switch sides like that?

    I'm almost 100% positive that they're excellas. And I didn't order any upgrades for anything on that jacket, since (from what I remember) it comes with the upgraded bemberg lining and the excellas. But don't quote me on that.

    Going to see if I can upgrade to Bemberg on my MinDR. Hope the Black Lamb looks as good as this!

    I sent my peacoat to the dry cleaners a couple times last season. The wool came back clean and great, and the leather looked fine too

    What can we upgrade for the CWU? Just bemberg and excellas?

    Also, I would get a peacoat in a heartbeat. The toj0's wool looks great.

    cheers. i'll check in with charly to confirm. Now other than excellas operating more smoothly, are there any cosmetic differences between standard YKK silver VS excella zips? it sounds like excellas are more silver/shiner? it would be great to get some feedback on how they differ in looks.

    Anyone have experience altering/tailoring a leather ToJ piece? I lost weight and wanna take in the p2p and sides by an inch or so, and also shorten the jacket by 1-2 inches (I ordered it a bit too long )

    Hi guys,

    Here are my measurements:
    1. Shoulders - 15"
    2. Chest - 38 1/4"
    3. Midsection - 32 3/4"
    4. Waist - 32 3/4"
    5. Front Length - 18 3/4"
    6. Sleeve length - 24"

    And here are the measurements that Charly suggested:
    shoulders 16.0"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 21.0"
    midsection 18.7"
    waist 18.2"

    Just tried to upgrade the lining to bemberg (hadn't known it was still an option after the no-customizations cutoff) but can't because the jacket is already being made. That's really unfortuna I'm just gonna sit by the mailbox and wait for the sweet smell of leather, mmkay?
