1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    The reason why they ask for both (base jacket/body measurements) is so they/you have a benchmark to use as a base for spatial visualization.


    1. Look at TOJ fit pics
    2. Decide what style you'd like
    3. Find the kind of fit you want in the gallery on someone that is built like you
    4. Measure out your jacket
    5. Measure out relevant body measurements
    6. Send measurements to Charly, making sure to specify what kind of fit you're going for and what you're mostly going to be wearing with it
    7. While waiting for Charly to get back to you, put the base jacket on, go to the mirror, memorize what this looks like
    8. Now close your eyes and project that image into a dark space. What happens when I alter P2P here? How would increasing the circumference by 2 inches on each side affect my overall sihoulette? Does this length look right? Should I need to add or subtract anything to get a more boxier or slimmer fit? How would this look w/ the rest of my wardrobe? Is it cohesive?
    9. Make notes.
    10. When you get the measurements back, compare what you got with what Charly gives you. Revel in how spot on Charly is
    11. Send payment and forget you did
    12. One day you'll get something in the mail and it'll fit just like you envisioned it
    13. When your friends ask you how much it cost, tell them "my virginity"
    14. The End

    I only submitted body measurements, and it works just fine.

    Honestly you don't need to know much about fashion or leather to be able to appreciate how awesome these jackets are.

    I have to wait for my MDR and stare at my toj0 sitting on the chair in my room. sometimes I wear my toj0 at night but summer in arkansas isn't very forgiving. atleast I can wear my toj0 while waiting for the MDR once the temperature is more appropriate.

    Looks really good and you did a good job to have it sized.

    Wow. I wish I was a blonde white person so I could pull off a jacket like that.

    I'm approaching 20 weeks now lol, but It's 40 degrees C right now so not like it matters too much.

    Navy body and grey goat sleeves here and I'm dying to see how that looks. At least you can imagine what an all black looks like.


    If that's toffee tan then I wonder what Bright Whiskey looks like then.

    Would look dope on a DR2010 and recommended for people who already have more versatile jackets.

    My excitement about ordering my A-2 has infected my girlfriend and she wants a BCDR :) I'm almost as excited as I am for my own jacket.

    Speaking of which, pics of someone's new Women's BCDR are in the gallery. Looks amazing:

    ^^holy shit that grain is amazing.


    if its lamb, training it to go a certain way is pretty easy. I like how the moto looks when the front does this (like aeglus' moto) so i just put it on a thick suit coathanger in the closet with another jacket pushed up against it holding the lapels the way I want, and now it stays like this:

    That does look good. I put my order in as a black lamb MDR, but I figure there's time to change it if I want since I already have an MDR. Moto is nice too, but I think I'd change to BCDR if anything, but would hear any suggestions :)

    my friend saw the daypack last night and he totally regretted not buying one. :foo:

    i'm quite sure that this sentiment will be universal

    I'll stick with my Dakine Heli Pro, can't use a ToJ to carry around your skis.

    Bottom line is that gold zips are regal as fuck. 2013DR+Gold zips is the absolute most gangster offering that Drew has put out there right now. If you want attention, that is the make up to go for.
