    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    just assume 4-5 month wait and forget about it, seriously

    if 4 months pass by and nothing, just assume another month to go

    eventually the email comes

    Alright, it's my first order so I wasn't quite sure. Gonna be neat because that's when cold weather's gonna start to come, and I'll have it for when I'm in Tokyo

    Gotta get my mind on something else until then, ugh

    Don't worry. It gets easier with time. The first few days are hard; you'll make it.

    Hey i'm Metin and I'm a newbee, was a thread watcher and followed your posts but now created an own account.

    Ordered the diesel blue calf suede BCDR with silver zippers in the beginning of May, before the announcement of the breakoff.

    measurements
    shoulders 17.5"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 20.8"
    midsection 19.0"
    waist 19.5"
    body length, front 21.9"
    body length, back 24.0"
    sleeve length, from shoulder 24.3"
    sleeve width @ pit 7.3"
    sleeve width @ elbow 6.3"
    sleeve width @ cuff 5.0"

    This is my first TOJ so iam very excited.

    Anyone experience with diesel blue calf suede? is it comfortable, heavy or slightly? some pictures in sunlight, beside the known pics?
    thx in advance

    The only calf suede bcdr that we've seen is Willy's and he says it's around 5lbs, basically the same as most calf leather jackets they put out. So it'll be heavy, probably stiff for a while too.

    If I've got a 40" chest and 18" shoulders, would that be about a 50 for the TOJ0?

    What would you recommend for an A-2? Brown lamb, brown goat (glazed/unglazed?) or dark brown goat?

    I'm leaning towards goat as I want something a bit more durable (and have a black lamb CWU on the way), but from the pictures I've seen the brown goat doesn't look quite as nice as the lamb.. How nice is the dark brown goat A-2? It being so close to black, would that make the shearling collar and ribbing look a bit off you think? And would it look good with brown shoes or would black ones be preferable?

    I'm having a hard time deciding which way to go..

    I can t make up my mind between med grey lamb (house recommendation) and med grey unglazed goat (fantastic according to Drew) for a 4zip moto... and the cut off is looming. First world problems right there.

    I am trying to make the exact same decision, really can't decide between the durability of goat vs the softness of lamb.
    Planning on ordering a bcdr in black calf suede with silver zips as well.

    Man I seriously can't make up my mind to go with a black/black, navy/black, navy/tan, or navy/gray TOJ0. [​IMG]

    Or even black/gray or gray/black. They all sound so great.
