    now that we have glazed and unglazed goat, can you add glazed lamb with a side of fries and truffle oil.

    imo your CM looks like it fits well, t3hg0suazn. I think it would look better with black jeans and luxe sneakers/boots though.

    My fellow TOJ aficionados, I am trying to decide between brown lamb or goat (glazed or unglazed) for an A2 Bomber. Any thoughts/advice re: leather choice?

    I did some research and Drew has previously mentioned that "lamb is soft, almost oily sometimes, with a 'cool' hand feel that is meaty - and then goat has a very cold (probably one of the coldest of them all) handfeel due to the pebble grain and it feels more lacquered and slick. Also, a bit tougher feeling, but when made up, it's still a soft jacket." Found this very helpful but both sound awesome, so didn't help the decision-making process.

    Would welcome advice or rationale regarding choosing between lamb and goat for my bomber. Thanks in advance.

    Lamb has a smooth texture and is very tender, goat has a pebbled texture and is a bit tougher. That's all there is to it.

    Drew, if you only had one leather jacket and it was going to be the A-2 bomber, would you go with brown goat or lamb?

    Lately it doesn't really matter to me, the materials are all pretty good. If I could choose only one, I'd get a black DR variant in lamb. If I had to get a Bomber, the answer would've been brown lamb, but we now have a bunch of colored unglazed goat (colors aren't corrected here yet) - there's a medium-dark grey goat that is fantastic and would work across the board on basically every model, likewise a medium olive unglazed goat that would also be great.

    and in other news: TOJ0 reboot coming out very soon. I decided against making it silk, because it was thin, amongst other reasons - and went for cleaning up the classic formula, and improved the materials as much as I could - 100% Japanese fine coat wool in the body, NZ lambskin (of course) sleeves, wool blend ribbing, and then Bemberg lining. Materials-wise, it's now all of the best that we have, which is kinda fitting since it's the original model and deserves to get brought back to the front. So we'll put that up soon.

    Already pre-ordered the suiting wool MA-1 so that area of my wardrobe is covered. While a varsity wouldn't necessarily be redundant, I don't like giving myself too many options. Even though I was never really a varsity guy, I do get the odd fleeting impulse to get one in Arsenal colors but that usually passes quickly.

    I like to keep a gallery tab open on my browser of the item I ordered so I can look at it every once and awhile. "Soon..."

    seeing as it's a toj0 reboot, it'll be regular sleeves

    Do you think the same thing will happen to a possible bball re-release? `cause I've been crossing my fingers for the chance that it might come in a red suede this time around. :satisfied:
