    Just wanna say that if more wool coats are in the making, and more ToJ for teh lady-types is in the making, it could be a wondrous thing if ever the twain shall meet. :nodding:

    I think your pricing is completely reasonable for a MTM leather jacket. Hell I've bought two of them so far and I know they are going to last me my entire life and be an item that I will pass down.

    You take a look at these designer leathers and for one, the quality is garbage, and two they are over double your price.

    TOJ offers an amazing product at a very competitive price, hence the penetration you've made over the past year or so.

    Whoever is complaining or making remarks that you are too expensive clearly has not bought a TOJ piece yet.

    stock sizes would really allow you take advantage of drunk impulse buyers, like myself. So, maybe don't do them.

    I don't think you can really compare pricing for designers compared to ToJ leathers though.

    Designers have to pay a boatload of staff, rent + utilities for retail premises, marketing budget, retail outlet markup, etc, etc. That's a massive overhead that has to be added to the cost, let alone just increasing the price due to brand cachet.

    It's really an apples and oranges thing. ToJ is ToJ, and they're operating in a completely different manner to most other retailers.

    I'd love to see stock sizes on some items though, $380 for a stock sized varsity or whatever would be a no-brainer for me.

    Do you feel that quality fabrics and pricepoints are a constraint for things you'd like to do?
    I know shearling was given as an example before.
    Sometimes I wonder what you could come up with if cost wasn't a concern.
    Heck, I'm sure you'd still have buyers even if there was a limited edition run of something in extremely luxe fabric.

    I am the 5%. not crazy tall at 6'1" but broad shoulders and barrel chest. Charly was more than helpful in figuring out sizing for a 56 and I was grateful for it. I was really happy with my purchase of the baseball at the lower price point but made me understand what TOJ was capable of. Ive been even more pleased with the A2 and will have more TOJ/JC pieces ordered in the next few months if my "56" is still available.

    I know there were a couple who wanted leather backpacks when Drew asked what yall wanted him to do next, but did he ever comment on it?
    Something very clean and minimalistic, similar to the ones made by haerfest, made by leather (completely or together with wool maybe) could be so cool

    Silver or gunmetal? I can probably have Drew re-dye them if I don't like it though...
