    How about they install some razor cartridges in the back of the jacket so you keep your back hair in check every time you put on/remove the jacket?

    My jacket is on a plane (Korean Air flight 37) that lands in 10 hours and 53 minutes.

    If it had a window seat, it would have looked like this:

    I've probably done that flight before, I used to fly between Seoul and St Louis two or four times a year for many years and ICN-ORD-STL was a good quick way to get home. As many times as I signed for a KAL flight, I'd end up on an AA codeshare and then maybe catch a JAL plane on the way back that would stop in Tokyo. I feel like I've signed up for KAL many times but only rode with them like 2 or 3 times in my life. haha. So elusive.

    Funny. I used to work at the airfield with full access to the domestic and international side. I was tracking a jacket, and the plane landed. I was pretty sure I saw the jacket too, silver wrapped package. I felt like just grabbing it at the moment when it rolled off the conveyor belt from the plane.

    Tried to get a better color representation with some daylight through my window. Not easy to do it justice, but it looks somewhat close form my monitor. This is olive calf.

    Wow. After seeing that dark brown goat DR Lorcan posted it makes me second guess my choice of black calf MDR. That goat looks divine.

    Maybe it is just my screen, but it looks a lot more brown than the olive calf jacket previously posted:

    Dayum, so many nice ToJs lately...Makes me want another. Shame I just bought a Plokhov leather, hard to justify 3 leathers without even a brown pair of boots

    Thought I'd share a couple of pics of my newly arrived A-2. Fit is pretty good but should probably have increased the width at pit more than I did. Arm movement is slightly restricted when I want to put my hand up high. Hopefully it will get a bit better with wear.

    personal bias but I don't like normal collars on leathers i.e. collared moto, non ribbed cwu, A-2 without the shearling.

    First post here on Styleforum.......No better way to kick off initiation with TOJ [​IMG]. Been a long time follower and I hope the below helps future buyers.
    I'm 5"10.5 with shoes on, 75kg. TOJ1 sz 50 with 23.5 body & 30" sleeves (i'm usually a size 48. Make sure to size up 1 on the TOJ1, which was also recommended by team TOJ)

    Hindsight > perhaps 0.5" shorter in the body and add 1" on the sleeves. Because of the MTM nature of TOJ's business, its very easy to get all OCD with measurements in hopes for the perfect fit. As such, I contemplated whether to sell my TOJ1 just for an inch here and there. But all I needed was a good slap across the head to knock some sense in me (courtesy of wife) to stop sweatin the small stuff.

    This is my first TOJ purchase and it won't be my last. I went for little to no stacking on the sleeves as I was worried of the excess leather on sleeves look. It may not appear on the pics but it feels like the sleeves 'just' made it to the wrist break. Silly risk on my part because any shorter, it definitely would have been too short. The varsity style is forgiving and its best to add an extra inch. In fact, I wonder how many times Charlie has read similar posts to mine and said to himself "I TOLD YOU SO!!!". Charlie's recommendations were in fact closer to my hindsight analysis.

    Black MDR awaits (lets go team TOJ), which i'm extremely nervous about. Why???....because I tweaked some of TOJ's sizing recommendations and I can't stop thinking that I should trusted their experience.

    My TOJ wish list - TOJ 2.3 DR & A2 repro (similar to the old 2.2 bomber).

    The secretary working this evening just called me and was like "what the heck did you order from korea" and I got real excited...

    but when she described the package I realized it was just my replacement monitor (which is not quite as exciting) which I had returned to korea.
