    Man this information is widely publicized for any company except for if someone uses Guidi leather and its a Japanese company so it seems

    They probably use local sources I would imagine?

    How do the shirts fit? I like the plaid one at Barney's, but it looks super cropped. Not so great for taller people?

    TOJ is Korean made and they use New Zealand Lambskin, so maybe not? I actually looked around online and could not find their source. They could source their calfskin differently though (and probably do).

    I have two and have tried another and they were all fine, I have a long torso. They're a little boxy IME.

    Well

    Ok man - the lamb skin, where is it cured / treated / dyed? They don't come off the lambs like that.

    Drew is pretty open and he has stated he sources from a fabric market in Seoul (iirc) and that's where he found everything he uses (except a few things). So, when I say sourced locally, that's what I mean - I doubt Geller is going to import special leather from various tanneries and then not talk about.

    I have a Geller leather and multiple ToJ's, quality is similar.

    I had to size up to a 48 for this shirt - it's pretty short and slim fitting.

    Any chance you have a length measurement? It looks like it may be ok because the hem line is relatively flat, I usually just get into trouble when there is a high gusset.

    Based on the measurements I've seen, it looks like it really depends on the shirt. That check shirt with the contrast sleeves looks like you could almost size down one, whereas the pleated arm shirt and the aforementioned dotted shirt are quite fitted for the tagged size.

    Does anyone here own the dotted shirt? I shipped back the 50, but liked the pattern enough that I was considering using the credit to get the 52. My only concern is that the material felt like it might be prone to picking up lint.

    It's hard to tell from forum text, but if I was offensive in any way I apologize. I was in a meeting and somewhat read over your post and missed some details.

    You are very likely correct on all points. I only asked because I was looking for some quality lambskin to line an overcoat collar with and really liked the TOJ/Geller lambskin and was trying to find some thick stuff that would be similar. As it turns out, finding lambskin over 1mm is not easy (for me at least).
