    I've misplaced my tripod plate and I gotta shoot at the mirror. Here's a black lamb ribbed CWU. I'm adding extra 0.5" on the waist for my next 2 jackets the goat bomber and FQHH CM. Sorry for the shitty haircut

    Just curious, is there an upcharge for goat vs. lamb leather? The unofficial site only quotes a price for the lamb.

    Have you made many T-1 or T-3s yet Drew? I was considering a suede A-1 in an Islander size, but these look interesting as well.

    yeah, goat is a bit more. Suede in an Islander size scares me, lol - those lambskins are just so small. Every size up means we have to slough off a color choice, I have no idea what the color choices are in sz 54+ as it's the sleeve length on those hides that kills. They've usually no more than 22"-23" across the longest part.

    Geez this thread is massive. I finally am deciding to take the plunge, like many others, on a ToJ piece with the news of the break. Anyway, I looked everywhere on the site and couldn't find the info - what form of payment does ToJ take? Gotta build up that paypal balance...

    Maybe this is a crazy/dumb idea, but I find the collar on my DR kind of hard to pop and get it to stay up, I think calf leather at the back of the collar would've made it stiffer.

    Calf definitely makes it pop more easily all around, though mine doesn't pop evenly on both sides unless I constantly adjust.

    After that picture of navy lamb, I am trying to visualize if it would work on any of the bomber styles. Might be interesting.

    Cool thanks, it was just a thought. You didn't have the goat leather last time we talked, and I didn't really want another lamb bomber (I have the CWU in black lamb) so maybe I'll get a brown goat A-2 unless you can talk me into something else. Maybe leave the suede patch off to set it apart from the CWU a bit. Definitely going to do one (or two) more MTM before that goes away. I kind of chickened out on doing the VTG CM but now I'm back to looking at it again...

    My lamb collar stays up when popped, but this may have something to do with the fact that it is always popped, doesn't have snaps and stays on a hanger in a closet with the collar up

    First leather, a CM in dark whiskey. The sleeves/arm pit were fairly tight straight outta the package. I had some initial bruising on the inside of my elbow and my arms would get numb from the pinching at the top. Those issues are long gone after a couple weeks of wear, and it continues to feel better by the day. I love it and think it fits great now. I am too clueless to know how a perfect jacket looks/feels, so would be grateful for any feedback so I can hurry up and get another order together before the deadline. I'm thinking CWU in black lamb--want something in black lamb--but am open to suggestions. Want a bball too, and maybe a 2nd leather.

    Still have to mold the collar. Does that require a complete soak or just a little dip? Thanks for any help.

    i think it looks good as is but that arm numbing situation doesnt sound too healthy!
    iirc, drew said to spray the collar with a spray bottle or something.
