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.

    All of my Tojs are black except for my peacoat, including the ones that are in the queue now. I have a bunch of John Elliot + Co and MMM tees in white, black and gray, and Geller seconds tanks that I'd layer underneath, and Saint Laurent, MMM, and Zam Barrett overdye black denim, and Guidi and two pairs of MMM black zip boots.

    Basically a monochrome outfit with luxe brands I guess if that's what you want to call them. I wear the same stuff with my other leather (black calf 5-zip).

    Oh that's right. Not to sound creepy or anything but I think I saw that on your instagram once which I think I got from the gallery haha.

    Just for discussion sake I used to REALLY REALLY want this jacket a couple of years ago. http://mrsfc.com/collection/all-holiday-2011/mr-varsity-fleeced-galaxy-denim/

    Picture for those who don't want to go to the link lol. Now that I look back thank god I didn't get it. First of all looking at the price, I think I'd feel robbed if I bought it. Obviously it comes nowhere close to TOJ and idk how much I would have actually liked it if I actually did get it. Looking at it now it looks slightly off to me. The toj0 is just so far ahead in everything. They also used to have a wool/leather version but now all they have is the denim/leather. This is why I think I have a soft spot for the toj0 haha. The jacket style is always something I've really liked. Instead I opted for a full leather DR to experience it. If I had more time a TOJ0 would be copped immediately.

    I usually wear a white t shirt or oxford underneath (black moto), with black, or little to no faded indigo jeans, and black chelsea boots or blacked out high top converse. I personally really like sized up white/black airism t-shirts the most to go with the jacket. That drape, and slight shine from them is nice. Sometimes at home, I'll wear the jacket with no top underneath. [​IMG]

    Just bought a used black lamb MDR with silver zips and thinking about trading out the hardware for blacked out, any one happen to know if a leather tailor would be able to take care of that?

    Have both, bemberg is nicer to the touch, but you probably won't notice the difference unless you are looking for it.


    Don't do it, you will regret it later. Silver looks so much better.

    Crap, didn't think I'd post this but having a real hard time deciding between moto and dr2013, and to a lesser extent 4 zip mdr.

    edit/
    dr2013 [​IMG] ...or 4 zip mdr? ...or qdr? fuuu

    Not tryna get into zipper talk but are the excellas the same size/as chunky as the normal silvers? Chunky > but I also like shiny stuff soo....just wondering

    I'd go with the DR or MDR, but that's just personal preference.

    I looked at your instagram after you just posted pics of the pen and saw your tattoo and description.

    Your grandpa is a pretty legendary dude in certain circles. I stumbled upon his colossus of roads boxcar work online a few years ago after watching a street art documentary (I think?) and really liked it. It affected and inspired me. Would love to see his stuff in person some day.

    Sick tattoo too. Very cool, I love shit like that.

    I used to paint trains in the '90s. That's your grandfather? The husband to the grandmother who gave you that pen?

    I'm 27, first year doctoral student. I have no idea if I fit any general "style" to be honest; I just like wearing clothes that are cut slim and have a tailored look, but are also interesting...while erring on the conservative side. Wardrobe's a grab-bag of Watanabe, CdG, Rag & Bone, RLBL, J. Crew, J. Press... Got into shoes over the past couple of years, so it's mostly Alden, Carmina, Meermin. Hoping to add a couple of Crockett & Jones by the end of the year.

    While taking pics of my lamb MA-1 for my classified I realized

    1) I really don't wanna sell this , maybe after I cut down it'll fit again...awefoijawepfiodskl;

    and

    2) the shoulder gusset detail when viewed from the front is amazing - one of my favorite parts of ToJs. Especially for band collar jackets like the moto, bcdr, lamb ma-1, etc. Little details so good.

    awesome! always very cool to meet people who recognize my grandfather.




    not related. grandma who gave me the pen is on my mothers side and Buz is on my fathers side. the grandma that gave me the pen got it from her boyfriend that wouldn't think twice if it went missing. Buz and his wife (my grandma) live in a little Podunk town in arkansas, that consists of like, a pizza place, a sonic, a family dollar, and maybe 150 people. I dont think they'd ever come across such a thing, haha.

    You'd have to be crazy in the coconut to sell that.

    how long does it usually take to run through customs? I checked my tracking when I first saw the email and it was in customs in chicago, that was about 26 hours ago and no update. maybe I'm too impatient or worried, but my margiela boots got caught in customs for 3-4 weeks and it wasnt fun. was hoping to get my TOJ by friday. thanks!

    Mine was in customs north of a week.














    Jokes. It was delivered before the tracking even updated as customs cleared. I've never heard a horror story with TOJ so it should be fast man don't sweat.
