    I want to make something crazy =/= I want to make something tacky

    We ain't doing toggles, collars, something that sounds like a varsity but is not, etc.

    TOJ0 - (light) lamb suede option for the sleeves, digi cam option for the lining. set menu for colors as with the 2011 TOJ1.

    I know you just said no collars, but something like this would be incredible:

    i think that TOJ is all about taking classics and giving them a modern cut. So, for a TOJ varsity remix you'd probably keep the standard silhouette and revamp the texture/flavor of whats offered (without letting people do their own color combo) or make a chimera with other Jacket designs involved(as has been done in the past with reversible ma-1s).

    Something like suede body/leather sleeve deal, twill/canvas body/vtg sleeves, and maybe a 5zip (not sure how that would look). A canvas body would be cool for the standard colors/floral/bukakke tiger/digicam prints and could serve as a space for personal customization. Over time the vtg sleeves could tan, stay white, or be dyed by the wearer.

    ... a revamped, crazy winter varsity could be done with a cashmere body, shearling sleeves (with ribbing), and a removable quilted body lining.

    5zip varsity would be really cool imo, but i don't know shit about varsities

    a non-ribbed varsity could be cool too, but ... see above

    IMO TOJ0 reissue would be the best, that jacket cannot be improved.
    I don't like zips, or camo, or reversibility.

    Maybe a quilted style? blistered lamb that everyone always back when you first started. Maybe something with the band collar closing or band collar dr style.

    Non-ribbed would be sweet. Or even taking it further, and having it ultra minimalist with hidden placket buttons or zip.

    But this is probably straying too far as Drew noted above..

    I would like a varsity along the lines of set in sleeves, contrast stripe ribbing on select colors, and interior of something funky like japanese floral print (with appropriate colors) or standard lining.
