    Berserker

    "...Norse warriors who... fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury..."
    "The name berserker arose from their reputed habit of wearing a kind of shirt or coat (Old Norse: serkr) made from the pelt of a bear (Old Norse: ber-) during battle."

    Unrelated, but I've always wanted to start a denim brand under the name of Genii Jeans

    Drew,

    Is there a big difference in term of quality/product execution from your first item made and the current offerings? Just curious.

    How do you guys feel about Charly's sleeve length recommendations?

    I have a well fitting nylon jacket, and the sleeves on that measure 27.5" inches. I gave Charly the measurements of a well fitting button-up shirt, and the sleeves were 26.75" inches long. Based on those measurements, Charly recommended a sleeve length of 29.8" inches.

    What I want to know is if anyone else thought the sleeve length Charly recommended them was too long, and if so, did they go with his recommendation anyways or did they ask for a shorter length? Were you happy with the result?

    Quick question and sorry if it was already discussed previously but do any of you use leather conditioner for your TOJ pieces? Recommendations welcome if you are using any. Thanks!

    Charly has been 5 out 5 so far. When I get my horse hide, I'm sure he will be 6 out of 6 then.

    If you are not sure why he gave you that measurement, then perhaps you should ask him directly.

    To the dude asking about conditioning the leather, I believe only horse hide needs conditioning once in a while. The calf and lamb don't.

    I have two different concepts regarding the naming of TOJ that I want to share about. These two ideas behind a future TOJ name is really from my personal perspective but I believe this way of thinking about TOJ can be applied across all current and future members of the TOJ club.

    The first name:

    Temple of Arma (latin for gear, armour, arms etc)

    or

    Temple of Arms

    Basically I envision TOJ as not just a 'brand' for clothing but sort of a 'place' to grab gear when I want to go out and kick-ass in life. I see my TOJ group of clothing as sort of a modern day armoury of jawnz. It is still more than just an armoury, it is also a temple. You sort of have to 'buy-in' to TOJ.

    The second concept or idea is a bit geekier.

    TOJ sometimes reminds me of perks or like enhancement from video games/D&D/whatever. When I'm wearing my moto I feel like I'm bulletproof, wearing spartan armour or some shit like that. Those who have TOJ leathers will know the feeling. It's like a +1 to swag, and it goes along with Drew's hold idea of going 'next level' or just levelling up.

    So I was thinking something along the lines of:

    Experience Point

    or

    Perquisite (which is what perk stands for)

    I'm not happy with any of the names but I thought I'd share what I think the idea of TOJ is to me (I also think of it as sort of futuristic ivy) and see what you guys think. Even though trying to keep name development for TOJ secret so I can get some leather, I think as a collective we can think of a sickt name. (always an opensource concept)

    After the latest spam thread, I realized the best replacement name would be SMFUL

    It stands for Small Medium and Fucking Utilitarian Large
