    Just had the weirdest, yet coolest idea for founding a biz-caz based collection. You will see it someday. Not soon, but later.

    Finalized my order for a bottle green 4-zip moto and pair of trousers in grey. Definitely looking forward to these, even if the jacket probably won't be wearable until fall (I am in Seattle, so you never know...).

    Do you guys think that the mdr is better in black calf, or lamb?

    I know that ToJ lamb is so soft and luxurious, but this would be my 4th lamb jacket (I have a varsity, a 2010dr that I wear religiously, and an A2 on the way). I don't plan on putting the jacket through hard wear or rain (that sorta thing is reserved for the 2010dr).

    I've read that ToJ calf has a denser grain, is twice as heavy as lamb, will probably last longer, and I've also read on the thread that it ages differently from lamb (I heard that it doesn't go matte, but darkens instead).

    I want this jacket to give off a luxe vibe that'll complement my black A2, and i know that lamb will look/feel great, but with this probably being my last chance to order a TOJ calf leather jacket, I'm feeling curious as to what others have to say. :embar:

    Based on the gallery pics it seems like calf looks best on jackets with a lot of hardware, like the 2010 dr and the 4 zip moto. It kinda makes for a consistent "heavy duty" theme. Maybe try it on the 4 zip mdr with silver zips?


    Just out of curiosity, would you consider sourcing textiles from Italy (cottons/linens) and England (wools)? I think you could do some interesting stuff with a TOJ cut and world class tailored clothing fabrics, kind of an alternative to Borrelli/Incotex/etc for biz caz with a modern silhouette.

    I've got a mdr in dark blue calf and freaking love it. Great to have the rugged calf with the vicious design. Plus I already have a lamb a2.

    Im pretty much set on getting a standard mdr. You bring up a good point about the calf looking great on the more rugged jackets (4zip/2010/moto) though. :satisfied: I guess my conflict here is that i want to try and make this thing last 10-20 years if possible. :embar:
    This sounds amazing. I'm actually considring this with the new silver zips. Are you still breaking it in? How was mobility, and how tight did you order it? Do you have any pictures of the texture/grain?

    do you guys think the baseball jacket would come out in green suede or navy once TOJ starts up again after the break?

    I have 10 days to decide whether I want the grey suede enough
