    Didn't you say you're a grad student? Life is going to really shitty if you can't see the humor in misfortune.

    Luckily that part couldn't be going better. All the more reason I'm annoyed over petty Internet drama TBH.

    You must be an MBA student. MBA programs are like parties in slow motion for good looking people in their mid-20s.

    For what it's worth, I emailed Charly about the pebbled and/or textured leather on the bottom of my recently received daypack, and he replied saying that he believes it is intentional and that Drew simply didn't announce the change clearly (i.e. was not a mistake in the production process).

    I've re-read the original post Drew made when describing the daypack and while there are multiple ways you could interpret it, I personally expected to receive smooth calf leather. That being said, I still think the daypack is beautiful; and unless there's some kind of new development on TOJ's side, I will be keeping it.

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure people are mad because this thread doesn't deliver.

    This could have been a legit argument if he had not advertised at the time of sale a photo of the back pack that had no pebble grain. He also can't argue to say the photo was a 'sample' because he advertised a previous customer modelling the product, which also had no pebble grain.

    He advertised it as TOJ calf, and having owned a toj calf leather before, I can assure you there's no pebble to it.

    He did the same with with the wool MA-1 at one point where buyers received a differnet fabric that had wider herringbone pattern, causing a pin stripe look.

    I've reached out to toj and waiting to hear back from them.

    "Oh, these backpacks are 6 months late... maybe I should update my customers on whats going on" nope

    "Oh, I think I'm going to change materials on these backpacks, maybe I should let my customers know" nope

    "I have lots of jackets just sitting around waiting to be shipped, maybe I should try and get help to ship these out" nope

    I honestly hope that @dieworkwear doesn't get his jackets at all so that @B0Bs4g3t can honor his end of the deal. I'd love to see what happens.

    It will either be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

    Or he'll kill me, and I'll never come back to this thread.

    Win-win.

    FWIW, USPS just tried to deliver my jacket, but I wasn't home so I'll have to pick it up from the post office tomorrow.

    Yeah I don't know what rubber calf is. Just saying they're both basically MDRs in ox.

    Now we are all reminded of why so many people ordered TOJ in the first place

    Has anyone bought or sold a spot recently? What date was it originally placed?
