    re: questions of lamb's durability, i've been wearing the shit out of my lamb moto for close to a year - like, getting fall-down drunk in it, storing it in a heap on the floor, etc. it's picked up some good nicks and scrapes, but i think they've just added character, and construction-wise, it's in fantastic shape. i'll try to take some evo pics tonight.

    please post, sounds like just how I'd treat my jacket

    All of these are pretty much spot-on, except the blue is like a dark royal blue (not as dark as navy) and the green doesn't have that much brown in it - it's purer green, and a shade darker as well.

    The medium grey looks like you have there, and then the dark grey is a shade darker.


    Made the corrections. let me know how these look.

    moto pics don't look as good because the start image quality wasn't as nice [​IMG]

    damn! so many options with the DR . But the minimalist DR is my new favorite. looks like it'll fit anyone's style without being too over the top. buy my 2010 DR so I can buy the minimalist DR! [​IMG]

    Drew, you should change the official name of the collared moto to "gothninja dad jacket" because that's pretty much what it is to me now. DO WANT can't decide on a color though.

    Is there some kind of official guide to self-measure? Seems like TOJ has advised that they don't follow the guides that some users have posted here. I think Drew mentioned on the superfuture thread that he'd drop some detailed tips. Starting with a good-fitting jacket will only get me so far, as I'm not sure a good fitting chesterfield would entirely relate over to a leather.

    Some of the fit pics (e.g., the peacoat a few pages back) have me concerned, and I want to nail it if I'm dropping $710-$760 on a final sale. Also, Drew, would a good fitting TOJ safari be a good proxy - as an inexpensive way to test fit?

    Wearing the LL Europa that the new quilted DR is modeled after. There was one Opening Ceremony Tron DR that was the same color as the color-contrast jackets shown [​IMG]

    Quilt on leather jackets on the shoulders and elbows is typically used as a bit of padding for the high impact areas in the event of a motorcycle wreck. Its a really nice touch and adds a utilitarian, edgy sort of vibe that comes from legit motorcycle leathers such as the lewis leathers these quilted models are based on. Also that ribbed sort of panelling seen on the arms of the band collar dr is where (in a legit riding leather) the stretch panels go, typically on the back of the arm above the elbow, to give that added flex and comfort in the riding position. While i do love seeing these details on the new toj leathers i gotta admit im a little hesitant to rock on of these knowing that these insanely well crafted details are indeed just decorative. I guess id just feel kind of like a poser, since these leathers are only coming in lamb they obviously cant be worn while riding. I ordered a calf dr for riding about a month ago and id love a band collar with the quilt but i would really prefer it in calf or fqhh to avoid having a fashion only piece. I feel like for tojs price range, i need something protective, a tool which i can use while riding and still look sick when im off the bike. Anyway i could get the jacket in calf or fqhh and just have the detailing in matching lamb? Best of both worlds. Also is burgundy anything available yet for use in these new leathers (i want a burgundy band collar dr), since the markets got all that new stuff?

    those look great, all spot-on. The red is opaque and doesn't have as much translucency as that, but all spot on.
