    There must be a ton of flash in that photo. The navy and the ribbing are both very dark. Here's natural light with a touch of shade (iphone 5 camera)

    I have grey/black at the moment, but considering a switch to black/yellow


    After putting the kibosh on a yellow QDR, black/yellow might be a nice consolation prize

    Dudes need to post their colorways when they get them

    Got my first toj today, oxblood calf MDR. Took a few pics and I think the fit is pretty spot on. I haven't seen it in natural light yet, but the colour is really hard to judge. It tends to looks brown or burgundy-ish depending on light and angle.

    I know everyone says it, but the calf is so much more heavier and thicker and stiffer than I expected. Gotta see how it breaks in, but I think I would've been better off with a lamb for my first jacket. But then I haven't experienced a lamb toj in real life so maybe I just think the grass is greener. I've got a Sherwood calf BCDR in the queue and I'm strongly reconsidering a lighter lamb suede instead. But again, gonna see how this jacket breaks in before bothering Charly with order changes.

    Dude that looks awesome, don't feel any regret for choosing the calf
    Like, if the fit isn't that good then sure, having a thick and heavy and stiff leather may not be the best option since it will be pretty obvious it doesn't fit well, but your jacket looks like it fits you perfectly.

    The Navy/Black looks fantastic in natural lighting. I am very excited to get my Navy/Grey. I can visualize the combo in my head and I think it will look awesome.

    I feel like ordering the Black/Yellow for everyone here, there can't be that many that are ordered that end up on the forum.

    Currently in my line up:

    -Black/Purple Winter Varsity
    -Brown Lamb A-2 Bomber
    -Black/Black/Digi Camo TOJ 2011
    -Navy/Grey Goat TOJ0 2013 (still a few weeks out)
    -Steel Grey Channel Quilt BCDR (ordered 2 weeks ago)
    -Black Lamb 3 Silver Zip MDR (ordered last week)

    Contemplating.....
    -Black/Yellow TOJ0 2013
    -Olive Calf 4 Zip MDR or Electric Blue Goat 3 Zip MDR
    -Navy/Black or Grey/Black TOJ0 2013 (huge maybe, varsity overdose at that point)

    Like I said, if I get the Black/Yellow that will put me into Tier 1 of the loyalty program and I might as well get another jacket at that point lol..

    Got some PM's re: collar molding.

    [​IMG]

    1. Find a rubber band.
    2. Soak just the collar with water till it's "floppy".
    3. Hang it zipped.
    4. Put rubber band around where you want the collar to start the reverse roll.
    5. Go to sleep. When you wake up, check how it's doing. If still wet, let it dry as long as it needs to take.

    Once dry, should be good. Re-do this process as often as you need to.

    Remember, though, that once your lamb touches the water it won't be the same as the other parts as your jacket. But you'll have a molded collar.

    about to place an order for a Black Lamb Single Needle Channel Quilt BCDR with silver zips. Just waiting on this guy to pay me for the pen I sold on eBay and have my mom transfer the last bit of cash into my PayPal. I also have a female friend (as previously seen in my toj1) who wants a black lamb womens QBCDR, single needle diamond/silver zips. so we'll pretty much get to match. it'll be cool tho

    I'm tempted to change my order already. I kind of want to add quilted half sleeves to my 4-Zip electric blue. Add some texture, and break up the leather.

    I don't really understand why some people like to throw quilt on things. Just switch to a model with it if you want that. :/
