    If I haven't gotten a tracking number, will I be notified if the carrier has been trying to make deliveries to me? I was told in an email that my jacket should have gone out last week, but I work during the day most days so I might not have been there if they've been trying to give it to me.

    They leave a note on your door or in your mailbox.

    How does goat compare to lamb/calf? I've read plenty of discussion about lamb vs calf bot not much about goat. What properties does goat possess to lead one to choose it over the other leathers?
    in comparison to calf, goat is more lightweight and has about the same abrasion resistance as calf. you see this kind of leather more on custom motorcycle jackets. stylistically, goat leather has a more pronounced texture, requiring less of a "break in" period that some people dread. personally though, I think it looks like toad skin. this is the observation that i got anyway, from comparing the sample swatches i got from langlitz. but because we don't care about abrasion resistance, it makes sense to just offer calf (durable), lamb (soft) and horse (indestructible) , since that covers the gamut of what most people want anyway.

    So I've just ordered a dark grey lamb moto [​IMG] and so I'm about to enter the exclusive club... Charly is really rather patient, thanks to you man.

    Can any of you tell me if I can expect any more communication from TOJ after I've send my payment? Like a confirmation on the size from Drew or a shipping notice, or will I just have to eat the waiting time until the postman comes knocking on my door?

    Best bet is try to forget that you put the order in, man. It'll make the time go by a lot faster and you'll get it when you'll get it.

    If you start counting days, you'll feel like an inmate waiting for the day of his release.

    Been thinking alot about shit, making new clothing ideas that we've been developing, etc, and as I've mentioned, TOJ will morph a bit into something different as a project of mine later on; but in the near future I've decided to do an 'Eat, Swag, Love' tour that will bring more swag juice to my projects to come. More details on that later, but the production/workings will stay as they are and keep churning out what they do.

    Hopped onto the swag wagon. Wondering what kind of shirt I can wear under the DR. Vnecks are shoo-ins but what about buttondowns?

    drew has stated that white button down + black pants are a winning formula as well. really anything will look good as long as you have the body for it, it fits, and doesn't break any stylistic rules

    had about 8 fingers high on that Bowmore from the Chateau d'Yquem casks by the time I went off to my corner, and a six pack before that; my flawless typing alone is swag juice. A technological Arnold.

    correction to that, only a TOJ white buttondown oxford shirt [​IMG]

    real talk though, my OCBD pattern is not fucking around, it's the best slim (but not Stanley Van Buren femme torso/hip problem slim) around. It's an in-house pattern from scratch that skips the plague of being copied stitch for stitch from BoO, and therefore fits the male sex properly. I haven't seen it fail anyone, check the gallery.
