    I reckon go with the first one (the original) in terms of colour.

    I think you're over thinking the matching question. You'll be fine.

    I actually have an A-1 on order. Mine is a repro from Good Wear leather, no suede, though. You can see them here. Mine will be made out of a lighter weight horsehide from Horween.

    I think you are right. Wife is also saying buy the first one and get it over with.

    First one (currently specified) looks like snuff suede color wise and I wear my snuff shoes with everything.

    The jacket looks good. Did they have any other leather colours to choose from?

    I like MaoMao's red and blue combination and could see ordering something similar.

    The $550 price is also very reasonable considering this is a MTM suede jacket.

    Could you provide some detail about the process of ordering from TOJ?

    Thanks

    looks very good.

    please do elaborate on the whole purchasing process.

    What other color suede/leather can they do?

    Can you also provide further detailed pictures/shots?


    I had been impatient and bought the Cucinelli jacket instead.

    Temple of Jawns information can be found at http://graphr.net/toj/ and one of guys behinds it answers all questions related to it here http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=138419.

    Regarding colors available Drew of TOJ posted a picture to give an idea of the colors available.

    How I went about it.

    I asked on their SW & D thread whether they would be able to do a A-1 bomber jacket in suede. They do their version of the bomber jacket in leather and it looks like this.

    They replied that the jacket I wanted is a variation of their current design so it is possible.

    Thereafter we had some email correspondance wherein I sent them more pics of the jacket I wanted including the details and the color I wanted. Once that was done they asked for the measurement. Their standard measurement chart is provided on the website. I only made 2 changes to the standard sizing, the BOC and sleeve length.

    Thats it, though they have a lead time of 6 weeks, mine was ready 2 weeks after confirmation and payment.

    I has asked whether they can do something like a Belstaff Roadmaster or Barbour International. They confirmed that it can be done.

    One member posted a pic of this Cucinelli that he wanted and they have confirmed that they can do it
