    We actually recently got a new fangled, relatively fancy camera, but I haven't figured it out yet.

    Hahaha

    Nice man.

    You should do a dark moody fit with the moto, black denim, julius belt and black boots.

    Show us your true goth ninja dark side

    without sounding like i am pissing into a mods pocket, i have to say this is the first moto that imo looks good i think the stiffness of the horse leather helps as it squares off the shoulders a lot more , hence a more pleasing silhouette

    Got my jacket a few hours ago. First impressions were that the leather and hardware are very solid quality. Beefy Number 10 (I think) zips all around. The leather is terrific. You are not going to get a better quality leather under $1.2K (see below for how I cam up with this number). Of course, the quality between different $1.5K+ jackets varies considerably. For example, recent Margiela sort of sucks, for the most part (insert jet inane comment here,) while Dries van Noten or Julius jackets tend to be fairly good quality.

    The stitching is solid. I didn't find any dropped stitches, though there are a couple of places where the maker obviously had to go over a section a second time. I would say that I have seen more sophisticated finishing, but again, not at the midmarket level. Overall, construction is comparable to that of traditional American leather jacket specialists, who typically charge $1200 or so for a comparable make.

    The cut is obviously very well thought out. The moto is something that is going to flatter any number of body types. I'd say that this is wear a lot of makers fall down. They concentrate on washes and construction, and end up with something very cool looking that looks good on 1% of the population (and not always the 1% buying the stuff). I think that cut combined with solid leather is really where ToJ stands out.

    As a value proposition, ToJ can't really be beat. I really like the cut of the moto. Actually, it fits nearly perfectly. The only thing was that I (not Drew) over-estimated the length of my arms by about 1/2-3/4". The hide is tough as nails too, but it is still a fashion jacket. I know that Drew says that this thing weighs a ton, and compared to Rick Owens jacket, or a Margiela jacket, it does. However, it is considerably lighter than heavier motorcycle jackets, which often weight north of 10 lbs. It will definitely take a beating, but I wear things in like nobody's business. I'll take another picture in a year, and you'll see that it will look positively lived in.

    Here is a fit pic. Ugh, I take terrible selfportraits - way conscious of the camera. I would make Cung Le look like an Oscar winner.


    It is interesting on how the comparison is from, both, fashion and leather maker point of view. Thanks for the review Fok.

    How much ToJ FQHH moto or bomber jacket would cost if I may inquire?
