    body looks fine, arms are indeed quite snug. what size?

    Went with a 48 in the sleeves.

    is that all muscle? whats your bf%?

    Yeah I've still got some size left over from heavy lifting in college. no idea what %. Makes good fits in the fashionz world pretty rough.

    No, for sure. I'm just thinking if the dude has enough talent to produce this quality of shit, with the following he has, he could be killing it hard financially if he's got a line / design house behind him.

    Then again he might go the mcQ route with all the bullshit / stress involved.

    I respect the attention to detail and actually seeming to care about the customer. Srs.


    Drew stated that he can easily sell these leathers for a grand a piece. I don't think he is solely for the money. Like Jason of TaT, he is happy when people actually wear the stuff.

    If he was to increase production, that means he would need a bigger crew, which can problematic. As Drew also said, he probably wouldn't have this operation running in the states because of the type of workers here.

    Honestly, if I weren't on this forum and know the story of ToJ, I don't think I would've bought all the pieces. It feels good to support one of your own.

    If that's all muscle, I'd sell this one and buy another. If it's not, see if you can lose some weight. I lost 15 pounds over the last 2 months and it made all my clothes fit better, cuz I went from a M/L to a definite M.

    Any updates on the TOJ guitar strap?

    Is the baseball size chart still a few days out?

    still recommending med grey over dark grey after discovering that leather conditioner cured the water problem of the dark grey? Any difference in the feel/quality of these two leathers? I prefer the color of the dark grey, but would get med grey if it is superior leather.

    How dark should the finished product be if you used an immersion blender?

    ^ it's gonna be one shade lighter if you blend all the detritus up, rather than fishing out everything with the spider. It should be rich and chocolate-y looking either way though.

    .


    So from the couple responses I received (and the PMs of people asking measurements for the B&S) I take it I should sell this one and move on, any new opinions? Not to beat this to death, but I absolutely am in love with this jacket.

    If the forecast doesn't say you'll get smaller any soon, sell it and buy a new one when cash is cash.[​IMG]

    If you're really in love with it don't sell it. But it does look too small and you could just order another one one size up from that.
