    Having a bit of a dilemma with my measurements

    Charly quoted me for:

    shoulders 17.0"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 20.3"
    midsection 18.1"
    waist 18.6"
    body length, front 21.6"
    body length, back 23.7"
    sleeve length, from shoulder 23.6"
    sleeve width @ pit 7.0"
    sleeve width @ elbow 6.2"
    sleeve width @ cuff
    4.9"


    when my measurements are.

    shoulder 16
    chest relaxed 37.5
    chest expanded 38.5
    mid 31
    waist 33
    front length about 21.5- 22
    arm 22.5-23
    bicep 15.5

    The issue I'm having is with the sleeve size. a 7" sleeve length at the pit seems too tight for me. I measured my upper arm at my armpit (unflexed) and it came to just under 14".

    I was hoping to get some peoples opinion on this please.

    Edit: this is for a moto 2011 jacket

    I sent a 14.5" bicep measurement to Charly and he suggested a 7.5" sleeve width for me at the pit for an MDR and A2.
    I don't have any of the jackets I ordered yet, so I couldn't tell you if the numbers work out or not.

    Which jacket did you order?

    I have 15" bicep and his recommendation was 7.5" at the pit. My guess is the leather will slightly stretch over time?

    I have a TOJ 0 2013. Love it. Seriously considering a Minimal Double Rider.

    I really love the Acne Gibson, not a fan of the suede on it though. Quick question concerning the bottom two pockets. Can they be without zips?

    Probably best to email the guys at TOJ and ask them.

    I did, thanks. Charly said they won't do it unfortunately. I just don't want zips. Looks like I'm not going with TOJ :( :(
    Super disappointed.

    Each to his own and all that, but really it looks way better with zips than without

    Got my MA-1 (black wool) last week. Charly really is the man: I told him I wanted my MA-1 to fit like my toj0, and it fits exactly the same. Great late fall/early spring jacket... Can't wait to wear it more. All sorts of great pockets on it too.

    do jackets normally get shipped out once a week and if so what day of the week? i think this is week 20 for me...the magical week per charly.

    edit: i can't count. this is week 19....still curious about how shipping works tho. once a week? multiple times?

    It's a MtM jacket, not a bespoke jacket.

    Some thoughts after a few months in on the dark brown goat moto w/ silver zips.
    + don't sleep on goat. the leather is really nice. TOJ built themselves on the lamb, but I really think the goat is a solid alternative.
    + compared to the lamb, the jacket is lighter, it's more crisp. it drapes differently than lamb. I feel like instead of hugging or hanging on you, it sort of hangs with clean lines and at sharp angles.
    + it's soft. yes, compared to the lamb, it's not as buttery soft, but by any other definition, the leather is soft.
    + having handled and worn all three leather types, my best analogy is that the lamb is like a pair of denim with the perfect wash, the goat is like a pair of raw denim waiting to get broken in and fade, and the calf is like a pair of heavyweight 32oz raw denim.

    I have a feeling that they do a weekly consolidated shipment, because Charly told me my jacket will be out this week or next. It would also make a lot more sense to have a fixed shipping day, rather than piecemeal throughout the workweek.

    Thanks for that. I just ordered the two zip moto in dark brown goat (partly after seeing your earlier pics) and this is good to hear! How often do you wear it?
