    BTW, I am going to call the TOJ consultation and production management services 'TOJ laboratory' for short.

    Best of luck in this new venture.

    You seem highly suitable for such a role.

    Do you prefer to work for yourself? Or are there roles like this within companies that you'd be interested in?

    thanks man, and yes, I like working for myself because of the scheduling possibilities (I am a night owl, I work in bursts, etc) and no, while there are jobs in companies that I'd find suitable work in, I wouldn't want to do it - doing things my way, this way, I can achieve much more.
    I think it'd be great if I could lift someone from the hallows of 'I'd really like to do this with my life, but I don't know how to, or who to ask' all the way to heights of success and achievement. I feel like I came from an even lower stage at the beginning of TOJ, and feel pretty satisfied with where it's brought me thus far. It'd be great to replicate that for someone else.

    Is this strictly clothing or do you have access/info on shoemaking as well (sneakers, boots, derbies, etc...)?

    This certainly makes good sense. As I say, if I had the money I would certainly invest, and honestly any initial losses would be about 40% subsidized by the Canadian government. Which is something that should definitely be mentioned to anyone who actually does have a day job and is thinking about this, it is a significant tax writeoff. I think the way I'd like to do it if I were going to do it (i.e. if I was 35 instead of 27) would be to form a partnership with a couple of like-minded people. Same principle.

    Also, I'm thinking A-2 in whiskey calf for my last minute order.

    EDIT: Could someone advise if whiskey calf is even an option for the bomber? Unofficial says just lamb. I should obviously know this.

    They're out of whiskey calf.

    I'm trying to decide between light brown, medium brown, and dark brown for a 4-zip Moto in calf. Any thoughts?
