    also, someone else ( I think it was Dbear? or Gbear?) got it right - don't go for the most aggressive color in the least aggressive design, bad match up.

    Lol, I think I just have big arms for my size.. my body isn't actually that big so sizing up wouldn't work :/

    This is what my similarly sized DR fits like:

    Drew- do you want to weigh in on how the 4zip vs 3zip mdr effects the look of the midsection/hips?

    I know you've said you really liked the 4zip mockups...but you're also the designer of the 3zip--is it just a change in your preferences?

    really no difference, just preference for hand pockets or not. People protest the horizontal pockets but honestly, short jackets like this are a bit short to think about putting your hands in anyway, if wearing a TOJ I'd never put my hands in the jacket pockets, just saying. I use my jeans pockets for the straight-arm look, rather than walking around like a coat hanger. I use my jacket to hold things, that's why the zips are good. Nothing like the feeling of security you get from putting a money clip or something in a jacket's zip pocket rather than your jeans pocket or something.

    Why not just email Charly to ask? How are random people on the internet going to be able to answer that?

    Not sure if it's too early to ask this, but I'm curious - does your plan for this new biz caz based collection include button down shirts with ornate prints/patterns? Like, something that would appeal to people who are into high fashion/mode-kei, seeking something fresh with carefully selected Japanese textiles&dyeing processes? I know that TOJ has done shirting before, but it seems like you want to take it in a different direction - possibly one reflecting your interest in mode-kei styles. You've also mentioned before that you'd like to do something artistic, so I guess that is what has made me wonder if you'll be taking a stab at this aspect of design.

    I guess what I'm asking is if we should expect really cool monograms/prints/patterns in rich Hermes-esque colors drawn up by Drew Keith&other artists, or will it be more along the lines of TOJ trousers - cool, thoughtful construction details and quality fabric?

    dude.... way too early. This is like asking a girl out for a serious relationship, when she smells from not showering, has mascara stained tears all over her face, and has her ex on her home screen and speed dial. Just wait a bit, we're not even done with the current iteration.

    Also, as I've been trying to explain to some of the guys who have contacted me about TOJ Labs projects, product making is all in the preparation, all in the perfection of things before people are talking about it, viewing it - before release, things can change at any time, in any way.
