    oh yeah, forgot to up the ante. Everybody gets only one entry for name suggestions. Prize is a leather jacket of their choice once the name has been chosen. [​IMG] Got it?

    Shit, now I wish I hadn't made a joke. Previous post doesn't count, okay?

    I think you should stick with another TOJ acronym. You wouldn't need to redo your label and you wouldn't lose brand recognition.

    My vote is for (the) Origami Jetpack

    ^That's what ended up happening last time, though I think brand recognition isn't really a problem because all of their customers interact with them directly via forums and word of mouth. The logo is awesome though.

    Lifelike.

    Since everyone's providing a backstory, might as well write a line on my reasoning:

    I've, sadly, never had the chance to handle a ToJ piece (getting there soon - well, actually I have a used varsity on the way, but it's the leathers I REALLY want) but from the online clamour, it's probably safe to say the quality and construction is top-notch. Having said that, I haven't had the opportunity to see this for myself in real life, so the only way I get to judge ToJ is through pictures. And the one thing that stands out is the impeccable fit.

    Lifelike, I think, encapsulates that feature. I want to get a ToJ jacket because it fits like a second skin and it looks fucking amazing.

    Also, I've always found single-word brand names more succint and punchy (Kitsune etc.).

    is there a 'drop box' for entries or are we only allowed to post one name suggestion here?

    Made to Swagger.

    Because you like the word swagger.

    And it sounds like "made to measure."

    Get it?

    GET IT?!

    I plugged "swag" into a name generator and got The Swag Dagger as my first result, so you should totally just go with that.
