    I'm not willing to take that gamble. Not after a 1.5 year wait time. Fuck no.

    It's kind of depressing that after 1.5 years of waiting we have to worry about the quality of the materials too, and various construction errors.

    excited for fall/winter to com so that I can wear my vtg on dry days and my dr on rainy days.

    here's an old one of me, the DR, and a naked mannequin in a bathtub

    both jackets are doing great, as is my old calf bomber, which hasn't seen much action lately, though it got plenty back in the day.

    ^^ How did your VTG shape up? Of the five TOJs I own, that one's been a disappointment to me (seam splitting).

    On the subject of jackets, may as well throw it in there- someone interested in selling their TOJ 2013 spot, hit me.

    That looks great. I have three jackets on order, and the black lamb MDR is the one I'm most looking forward to.

    Thank you. MDR is by far my favorite piece in my entire wardrobe. It's so versatile. On the colder days I layer it under a peacoat and it's absolutely perfect.

    you asked for a shaved down jacket, so you got a shaved down jacket (that's what the original charly special was).

    ^ That's actually pretty relieving to learn, for those of us who didn't know what to make of the reports of leather thickness variations.

    I didn't ask for thin black lamb leather for my GF's DR but it ended up having considerably thinner lamb compared to other TOJ lamb jackets I've owned and handled. On the contrary my MA-1 has pretty thick lamb.

    I'm more or less a stock 48 in all aspects, so I didn't wanna wait so long for the MTM, so I got a blacked out 3 zip MDR second hand off of someone. Leather felt and smelt great, but I wasn't feeling the black hardware in the end, so sold it on. Got a 4 zip MDR with silver hardware on the way, and my eye on a A-2 as well. Fingers crossed these ones will be of a nice thickness!
