    It is pretty warm today, so I just threw it on for you 5354. Maybe I´ll shoot it some other day.

    EDIT: I did not do something ugly(like spilling 2% milk) on my t-shirt, it´s just residue from the Windex(I hope)

    I didn't think I was a big fan of the MDR, especially when suede BCDR is available but that one turned out great. Kudos.

    First TOJ came in today, little over 16 weeks from order to door. Dark Brown Goat Moto Silver 4-zip.
    Fits great, could take in a half inch in the waist probably but roomy enough for something underneath which is what I wanted.

    Also pictures don't do the dark brown goat justice, it really does look black unless you get it under a brightly lit area.

    What's wrong with herringbone?

    Nice fit OJKD, I for one agree with reedo and think the whiskey looks good lighter-coloured jeans and dark indigo raw denim. Do not wear khaki &olive chinos would the MDR because there's a lack of contrast IMO.

    Reedo said black jeans wouldn't work, but I think they would. Also try ocbds too. Also scrolling down on the shorts and wood paneling was pretty funny.

    Herringbone to me has the connotation of living in colder weather. I live in California and that is the thing holding me back from getting the wool MA-1.

    And to your question about the warmth seriously just search nub. It's been answered at least twice.

    Just got my black wool ma-1 today and I absolutely love the way it looks.

    However, it's a little too slim for me so it will go to B&S as soon as I can take some decent pics.

    To anyone interested I order a size 48 with 44 lengths. I can give detailed measurements to anyone who wants them.

    Black and brown can work together, but for me its sort of rare that it would look better than a predominantly black or predominantly brown outfit. If the guy doesn't even know what to wear with a moto, i think black/brown combo probably wouldnt be the best way to start. Personal preference i guess



    Again, another personal nitpick for me but it's really reminiscent of A. old people clothing and B. the kind of shit I would buy when I was first getting into clothing. So many herringbone blazers, why god why

    Plus, it's just not that visually appealing to me. Plain black is infinitely better imo

    you guys are overestimating the obviousness of the herringbone. it's very subtle, you can't tell unless it's like 6" from your face.

    I've had at least 4+ tabs of different ToJ jackets open for the past several days, deliberating on what to choose.

    Can't. Freaking. Decide.

    That is by far one of the best bots I've ever seen.

    Anyone else who recieved the MA-1 recently notice the more pronounced herringbone pattern? I'd like to see pics, curious as to how it looks now.

    so I'm 17 years old, just recently got a well paying job and a car and someone offered to buy my bass guitar and amp for $140 (I have $45 now). I make approx. $140 a week but I have to pay for my phone bill/insurance/pay my mom back for half of the car ($50/$71 $86 respectively, per month) plus gas. also of course stuff comes up with buying food/going out with friends/etc. should I sell my toj0 2011 and save up for a toj (mdr or bcdr most likely) considering I can't really even wear the toj0 2011 until fall?

    insight would be appreciated.

    doing the math: I make approx. $560 a month - $207 in fees makes $353 a month but food and gas tears off a big chunk of that (my car only gets 20mpg and I drive quite a bit, its about 15 miles to get to work, and i work three days a week).

    I have $45 plus $140 (bass and amp) plus $250ish(if I sell the toj0) makes $435.

    $780-$435 is $345 which I could earn in two months probably.

    oh and totally forgot I'm getting $50 tomorrow so thats $295 to be earned.

    so yeah sorry for the rambling, im sort of thinking as I write. so should I sell my toj0 and save up for a full leather model? alternatives to spend my money would be: blowing it on food (yeah, bad idea), smaller fashion purchases, subwoofers for my car (probably also a bad idea) or a mountain bike.
