1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    i dont think the jacket looks that bad. theres only so much you can do when buying a stock size on the internet? if you went full MTM and thought it didnt come out as you said, that would be different i think. I, like many others, think the pose is what makes it look worse than it really is. also, im 6' 195, and i dont see how with 15 pounds and 3 inches on me you can be a medium in most american stuff, im a l/xl easily, so maybe you just thought this would fit something like a DR or something? really not sure what your expectations were

    I carry most my weight below my waist. I cycle between 100-200 miles a week. So my butt and thighs are big. I am shaped funny. Because of my cycling I can drop weight and up top is where I loose it faster.

    Peps say hit the gym, I have to eat to be able to continue cycling.

    I wonder if this is a prediction of what a No-MTM future is going to look like.

    Will be perfect for some body shapes and other dudes will just not be able to fit various models.

    ^ Full MTM won't look good on a lot of people's body shape.

    That TOJ1 looks good on the varsity side, kinda shitty on the flight jacket side. The sleeves could be slimmer and more room in the chest/midsection/waist could fix the potbelly / pear shape effect. Don't know why everyone is saying it's too long. It ends well above his front pockets and he's a tall guy with a long torso so 24.5" front length is well within the standard TOJ range. Agree that this is an example of how TOJ "house cut" is quite slim and stock sizing based on that cut would not make for attractive proportions for many people above a certain height/weight.

    So you mean American cut like Brooks Brothers traditional fit? Cause by forum standards no way you could be a standard medium

    At this point he has seen my pictures and when he said they fit tight on him I take it as he is my same size.

    After seeing his pictures recently I understand why 54 would be tight on him. Dude is a beast. I am puny compared to him. He probably benches my 210lbs on the daily.

    Saying I used the wrong jacket is a good copout but in this case Charly made his recommendation before the jacket was introduced.

    I can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking my head up a bull's ass, but I'd rather take a butcher's word for it.

    :eh: I most often wear a medium, and I'm 6' 1" and < 160.

    I think the only ToJ I've seen in the wild was Charly's.

    Congrats! I can't wait for my A2 as well. But in lighter brown goat. I try to survive the wait by not thinking about the jacket at all, but then there are days where I can't decide what jacket to wear and the first thought that pops into my head is "TOJ, leather, swag"

    Got my peacoat (black/black, quilted lining) from deadline. It's well worth the wait. The material feels substantial, and blows away the other peacoats I've owned. My favorite part is the leather detailing on the collar/pockets. Thanks to Charly for the sizing help - I don't think there is anything I would change.

    Apologies for the awful quality webcam pics, but at least you can get an idea of the fit.

    For those who always ask, hayabusa - how warm do you feel in the peacoat with quilt lining, and where do you live?

    I'm in B.C. (Canada), where winters are usually pretty mild. I haven't had a chance to wear it out yet, but judging by the thickness I'm confident it will do the job.
