    SO many people recommending 4 zip. Can anyone elaborate and why specifically? I always kinda thought 2 zip was the way to go until I realized there was a 4 zip option lol.

    more distinctive? Or because 2 zip is plain vanilla too boring?

    I wouldn't say its boring. It's a cleaner look, but not boring at all.
    It's a matter of personal taste (daah). Get what you perfer.

    I'm keen on getting peoples opinion on the hemline.
    Am I the only one who perfers the moto without one?

    3-zip/cafe racer, best of both worlds. In hindsight I should have asked for a single chest pocket but I quite like the sparseness of my 2 zip

    none of these things you guys are talking about are available, because they've been tried and are not as good as the 4-zip.

    Can you guys post some measurements for the VTG DR sample for sale? I'm interested, but really need to know some exact measurements first.

    ^ Creases/wrinkling at the arms looks seriously awesome.

    Also demonstrates that an untucked button-front shirt looks fine under a black 4-zip.

    PhD at Northwestern, I assume? I'm finishing my B.A. in Econ. there right now.

    Can't wait for some new TOJ jackets. I'll be graduating from college in 2.5 months and I think a new leather would be a prime grad present to myself.

    It's no wonder Drew recs the 4-zip--it's eye-catching-swagalicious--and one of his best offerings.

    We're just lucky that he allows a 2-zip option.

    Personally, I like the 2-zip b/c it has a "cleaner" look with less hardware. For example, I think Aeglus' picture would also look great w/o the 2 top zips, but it also looks great now. Realistically, can't really go wrong, imo.
