    BTW MA-1's are available for order, I decided to go with a black quilt lining on these and the first round of them is in production, so order if interested.

    It's low shine, quite different from the waxier looking calf. It's very solid looking, when put together as a jacket.

    just a thought. if TOJ was featured in some fashion blog (selectism, high snob, etc), drew's orders would quadruple.

    I'm thinking drew has enough on his hands and is not looking for high volume sales right now, and instead focusing on designing. We are his test audience before he expands. He is not really doing any marketing of his brand. The man is thinking long term.

    Basically. If he wanted to do that, it would have been easily done a while ago.

    Seriously, all of these bloggers (Inventory, Selectism, etc.) check SF and SuFu. They're aware of the Jawnz.

    I dunno man, I brought together all the materials for that, but I have a few orders I need to clear through before I start working on that. It's gonna be a new but familiar style, to add on to the leather jackets. Might add one or two styles total here.

    The whiskey color is like, it's the color of a good milk caramel, but it's got more dimension and depth, so it's definitely like looking into a glass of whiskey on the rocks, or the top of a nice old acoustic guitar. That kind of color.

    I guess it will be a little bit. Fok's jacket in FQHH turned out really cool, we (including tailor) were all impressed, so FQHH is definitely a go, for at least our limited quantities of it. It's got a nice mix of graining and will most certainly take to a good beating, this one definitely needs to have the shit beaten out of it to even begin to bloom. We'll all be old men before we see a big evolution on that one, but it'll be worth it. I won't say bullets, but I think it could definitely give a blunt knife or object a hard time, it's a bar fighters jacket. I'll log back in around February 2020 to see evo pics.

    It's black leather, so a photo honestly won't really do it man. It's got a wider grain, a duller appearance than the unwashed lamb or calf, that's about it. Not much to see if you've seen my other black jackets.

    yes my dude, pretty much. Being that I just woke up one day 8 months ago and decided to make clothes, I have been doing this as research, tearing down garments, consulting manufacturers, learning a lot. I still don't know tons, but I am working on it, so for now I am content to bring you projects that I've worked on, researched, tinkered with. Someday I'll be able to put together a more cohesive collection of clothing, but for now I like working piece to piece, building experience and seeing stuff come together. It's nice not to be too big, and know that what I put together is nice and quality and that I'm doing stuff for individual people. I'd rather that, than fake it and tell you guys stuff you want to hear and sell you junk.

    Did more DB trench research the past couple days, has been interesting. DB trenches turn me on, they're really intricate and are full of details. Love that shit.

    Any word yet on details or color options for yours?

    not really decided, because I'm like 80/20 on a fabric decision still. I really like black and navy trenches in tradition cotton/poly trench blend, that slight cotton-y sheen sings out to me. I'll probably include more than just one khaki color, probably lighter and darker for traditional choices. Grey as well. Maybe wine? What do you guys think?

    I prefer this to be a cotton-based material, and not a tech fabric. Not finding any tech fabric that I like much.

    Bright orange or red would be awesome.
