    I think bomber guy also makes the toj1 because of the bomber side. I think drew said so close to launch of the jacket, but that's a while ago now.

    Anyone have sizing advice for the trousers. Is there a rule of thumb like circumfrence of hips *1.xx? How large is the range of each size, as in +-0.x in? Just can't decide on a size.

    On a given jacket would such an ideal length be possible both zipped and unzipped or are you saying this ideal if for one or the other( if so which)? Or should you just perfect it for whichever configuration you'll usually go for...or a compromise between the 2?

    Big dilemma right now with my 4-z goat MDR. It's length is perfect when zipped but when unzipped seems just a bit too long. Considering flipping it and reordering .5" shorter...but can I do without for about 2-4 months?!

    On a similar note, I've been skimming through the thread to try and figure out what exactly the new label is going to change for TOJ. I remember reading the post prior to the cutoff about changes like no more MTM, etc, but can't seem to find much information past that. I'm assuming the current TOJ jackets will still be available? And are prices going up all around?

    Would like to have some info in case this is the last chance I'll have to get a MDR. Been eyeing it for months and I haven't purchased a TOJ piece since the annivarsity.

    Question for the people who have experience with both the Goat and the Lamb:

    How does the goat feel and and drape compared to the lamb? Thinking about trying out the lighter brown goat on an A2 (unless it makes sense to wait for John Coppidge).

    It should be a bit more durable than the lamb (and obviously more textured) but what do you lose in feel/fit?

    Toj is not Gangnam style! Gangnam style is only department store brands like Prada, Gucci, LV. I do have local people here in seoul comment on the quality of my many toj jackets but local guys dont wear that style.

    Probably the CWU if I had to guess. Mine shipped pretty fast (like 6/7 weeks) way back in the spring/early summer.

    I'm between a mdr and 4zip moto.. dark brown goat or black lamb. Not sure which one may benefit more from mtm, but can only afford one for now and any advice would be awesome. (note: I wear mostly v-necks, hair color is dirty blonde, 6'1" tall)

    I've been hesitating on copping because of my summer return to the gym, and taking slight muscle growth into account could be important (is lamb more stretchable?)

    That's not near enough information to determine your style. All you told us is your hair color and that you wear v-necks. You should know best which jacket style would suit you more. If you look dumb in a DR, buy a moto, if you look dumb in a moto buy a DR, if you look dumb in both, buy a bomber.

    Also as stated many times in this thread, it's never good to size up to accommodate growth. My advice? wait a few more months if you really think you're gonna be packing on more muscle before ordering, otherwise have fun in the B&S thread.

    Thank you. Not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed. Never tried an DR on before, so not really sure.. will do more research [​IMG]

    Sorry if that was a little too blunt. Yea, it would be best to try on a DR style jacket before making your decision, if you have a H&M around you, you could always check them out. They usually carry some sort of faux biker styled jacket that you could try on to see how it'll look on you.
