    I 'think' I saw somewhere in this thread about the making of the ToJ with pictures, but could not find it. What is it like?

    Are they made in a small-to-medium sized factory with workers (a couple crappy clothing makers I interned were like this), or in a small dark basement with few artisans (azummas and ahjussis) working under small light bulbs, a-la-Japanese glasses maker style?

    Truth. I was thinking lamb a2 but I'm also about a 56 and drew wrote a post in reply to one of yours saying that might be too big for lamb (or was that just lamb suede he was preferring to)

    He was referring to the lamb suede, the hides are quite small.

    i'm interested in Drew's thoughts on this as well...i just sent payment for a DR and currently own a bomber

    just 10 minutes ago i was taking measurements on another jacket i own trying to make sure that i committed on a size that will give me the fit i want...and i really should be in bed since i have to wake up for work in 4.5 hours :dozingoff:

    i'm sure this won't be the last time i do this either

    It's not worth your time finding out. Explored it initially as it was more British based than here...but it turned out to be full of supreme/bape/nike garbage. Few good posters like seenmy...but I generally just like to troll it and wind people up now to pass a few hours in the office.

    At this rate the first batch might come out by the time the TOJ revolution is complete :)

    In the market for a pair of black garbadine pants, but don't want to wait 10 weeks for them. The TOJs do look great though.

    A couple of weeks ago I put in an order for my first quality leather jacket, the brown lamb A-2 bomber. At that time I was told that goatskin was not an option for the bomber. After reading Drew's recent posts, however, that seems possible for an additional cost of $65. And now I'm starting to have second thoughts. Main reason for considering goatskin over lamb is that I live up north in Scandinavia, where we often face changing weather conditions (rain, snow, etc.). Goatskin seems more durable than lambskin, and hence has potential to be worn for more seasons of the year.

    Options:
    1) Stick to the brown lamb A-2.
    2) Change the A-2 order from brown lamb to dark brown or black goat.

    (A third option might be to order a black goat 4-zip Moto (w/silver zippers) in addition to the brown lamb A-2, but I haven't really planned for this extra spending.)

    Any advice?

    if that is the case and you plan on wearing in wet conditions, go to black goat. You won't be disappointed.

    I dunno, for $65, it seems to be worth it.

    Goat is more durable than lamb and will probably fare better in temperament weather.

    Occasional rain showers often come as a surprise, especially during spring and autumn. Don't intend to use it a rain jacket, but it would be too bad if weather should ruin a lambskin jacket.
    Black goat, black shearling collar, no name patch. What zippers do you recommend for this combo, Drew?

    I could also need some final sizing advice (length and waist). I'm 6"1' and weigh 165 pounds. I settled on front length 23.5", but have started thinking I should extend this to 24.0" since it is a bomber. Waist is 18.6", but I should maybe loosen it up a bit. What do you think?

    Just be sure you know what the texture is like. I got a sample from Langlitz, and it's definitely not for me.
