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.

    Just as an FYI, the TOJ email address on the paypal account is not fake to my knowledge. It is the contact info/2 phone numbers associated with the account that are purportedly invalid according the paypal associate lady. I just wanted to clarify this detail as I'm being cited as the source of it.

    I contacted Charly and let him know what is going on at SF. This was his reply: "I've let Drew know and he said he'd post."

    I'm selling my spot August 25th 2013 for $820. It's a black calf BCDR stock 46 with extra length to sleeves and torso. You can change it to pretty much anything you desire.

    I'd like to help him out with ideas.

    1) Korean Holiday
    Aug 15 Liberation Day National holiday
    Sep 7 Mid-Autumn Festival Day 1 National holiday
    Sep 8 Mid-Autumn Festival Day 2 National holiday
    Sep 9 Mid-Autumn Festival Day 3 National holiday
    Sep 10 Mid-Autumn Festival Day 4 National holiday
    Oct 1 Armed Forces Day Observance
    Oct 3 National Foundation Day National holiday
    Oct 9 Hangeul Proclamation Day National holiday

    2) Snag in leather supply
    3) Too many emails asking for changes/status/refunds, causing massive delays.
    4) The 1 month disappearance of the Great Leader in North Korea caused an additional 1 month delay.
    5) Fears of ebola.

    ... wait this just gave me a great idea. Make a board game where the goal of winning is getting your TOJ jacket... but all the rolls and chance cards are filled with reasons for delays. It would look something like "Sally quits... go back 10 spaces", "korean holiday, skip a turn" or even the dreaded... "Jacket arrived with mismatched zipper pulls, go back to start".

    Any specific models you might have in mind? I'm not too familiar with SLP's lineup.

    isn't the Vanson/Styleforum/Thurston Bros jacket pretty much a MDR with slightly different pockets?

    not available as lamb, but they have some lighter-weight calf options.

    if anybody is wondering why i stuck up for TOJ so much, but still recently sold my spot. i inquired about when i would receive my jacket and i got an email back from the TOJ address thanking me for always being such a loyal customer, but was then given "advice" to sell my spot now because of a setback causing an indeterminable delivery date.

    I believe Vanson x SF has wider lapel and more aggressive hardwares. Sleeve zippers placements are kinda weird tho. It is certainly more minimal than the original Vanson x Junya, but nowhere near the MDR.

    @clark kent did you get an indication that the indeterminable delivery date was related to your jacket style--what jacket was it?--or something else?

    I have a feeling we're going to see a 1929-esque tumble of TOJ-spot resale prices in the next few weeks.

    i'm not sure, the email was signed by Drew Keith himself and included a couple winky faces at the end.

    The hell? You need to provide more details here, if possible. What makeup, and when did you order it? And what sort of shady stuff is this when an individual customer receives a clear hint that shit is going down so they'd better clear out? What sort of setback, and why are the rest of us not informed? This is extremely poor form on TOJ's part.

    Drew also told me that he could refund me in leather sofas and entrees from his restaurant.

    This is a joke, right?

    Edit: obviously

    Basically, but...

    ...those are the reasons why I can't pick that makeup. :) The MDR is wonderful in that it's my favourite TOJ style, but horrible in that I don't know of any really close approximation elsewhere.

    the vanson jacket is editable--you can remove zippers or change details for $50 a pop from my understanding.
