1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Navy Calf DR - Arm holes and shoulders are quite snug, does it look too small?

    Yeah, the biker style jackets coming out now have had a production time of approx 3½ months. But that's not to say that if you put in an order now, it will take more than 8 weeks to ship.

    As you should be...I have owned both gunmetal and silver, and the silver is crazy cool - takes the jacket to a different level. Makes the gunmetal look almost dirty.

    Ari, is the jacket new? Wear it around the house for like 10-20 hours zipped up, if it's lamb it will stretch to you. I have significantly wider delts than most guys, and mine almost looked like yours when I first got it, and I was kinda disappointed, but over time it really morphs to your body. I can picture that leather fitting you really nicely in a few weeks - just get your hands all over it (seems like oil from my hands has changed the leather a bit? maybe just my imagination), throw it on the floor at night, don't baby it. It'll break in nicely. Cool leather color, too.

    There's a second benefit to a TOJ used market (besides granting a discount to people who don't want to wait for one with their own measurements).

    It means those of us who own jackets have willing buyers. It lowers the risk to entry a little bit. If you are not sure something will fit or work with your style, there are plenty of people who will very happily pick up a used TOJ. You'll have to sell it at a discount, but it seems like less of a discount than a similar non-TOJ garment might require.

    Imagine trying to sell a MTM blazer that you ordered from some guy in japan who's got a company in korea who put it all together for you--no, they don't have a website, just an email and a tumblr with some pictures. I don't know much about the going rates of used TOJ, but it sounds like you can sell the core pieces at what...a $150 discount? Much more willing to take a risk if that is all that is on the line (you're going to lose a lot more money trying to sell a MTM/custom piece from somewhere that's not a forvm favorite)

    I honestly think it looks fine, it just depends on your body type really in looking at those pictures and because its calf it's thicker and doesn't really drape like the lamb does. It'll wear down some and become easier to move around in, in judging from those pictures. But that's my personal opinion
