    Order placed. Huge thanks to Charly and all his patience. If I had to deal with me, I might go insane.

    Had a freakout over measurements last night 6 weeks in on my other order, but got it handled. I'm no longer sure MTM going by the wayside is a bad thing. I've never worried so much about buying a "medium"

    Hmm that CWU-45 is growing on me--anyone know which color and leather this is?

    Not sure I am really keen on the waistband and cuffs though, I like the idea of everything on the outside being leather except for the metal hardware.

    Just about ready to place my order. The silver hardware is still available, for anyone who wanted to know.

    Don't hesitate on the TOJ fishtail guys. I love mine so much that if and when I move later this month, I'm gonna keep it stored with someone local for when I return to visit the Bay Area. Since it got cold again, I've been wearing it as much as I can knowing I might not have many opportunities to later. In terms of warmth I've worn Schott Peacoats during an Eastern Montana winter and it felt just fine(it ranged from like 0-40 with horrible wind chills, the red bull could be frozen by the time you got in the car). I think the fishtail without the liner is just as warm. I'm sure you'd be pretty nice and toasty with the liner and the hood up.

    I think the TOJ military trinity would involve a parka, flight jacket, and a field coat. But a wool fishtail, leather bomber, and nylon bomber is good too. If only Drew had put out a suede or waxed cotton M-65.

    I didn't put my liner in once this winter as it wasn't terribly cold this year (southern Ontario) but when I did put it in to see what it's like it was boiling so you should be fine. IMO it looks/drapes better without the liner in.

    I'm thinking of getting a second TOJ leather, already getting a medium grey lamb MDR. I think I want a black leather so I'm thinking of getting a black 2010 DR / 4 zip MDR. Do you guys think I should go with gunmetal or silver hardware? Would gunmetal hardware match the calf better because of the 'rugged' look?

    pretty sure its brown lamb. The ribbing is a classic detail for that jacket.

    It's not really a "model"... not sure if seriously worked up or not.

    Does your collar stay the way you want it, even without a snap? or does it move around?

    How does the whiskey lamb compare to the whiskey calf I keep finding pictures of?

    And does it darken a bit over time with wear/UV exposure?
