    Idesthesia. It's a butchered combination of the prefix ide-, meaning idea or thought, and -esthesia, meaning sensation, as in the sensation of an idea or thought, in reference to being able to touch and feel what was originally just an idea in your head. Also has the benefit of being completely made up, and having absolutely zero hits on Google. And it wouldn't embarrass your mom. [​IMG]

    Email address will stay the same, sizing charts will stay the same, sizing advice will stay the same - I am doing the emails from next week, and well, I made the clothes and the charts, right? [​IMG] I have the internet on my person about every waking hour, so no need to worry there.

    In addition to updating a list of what is available for what, I will be setting up a better self-measure guide so that there are fewer questions pertaining to sizing, and so people can send their orders in without much delay.


    Presumably you'll be sending out the tracking info from now on out too, right?

    I learned how to make a shearling jacket yesterday. There is some pretty amazing shearling out there at the marketplace nowadays, so this F/W there'll be something using that, I hope. [​IMG]
    Any hints on which direction you would like to take with the shearling? As far as I've read, I don't think that you've mentioned the design that you had in mind. I'm crossing my fingers for a classic b-3 aviator/bomber/flight jacket design, though.

    I won't know until I have played with the shearling a bit and get sustainable lines on shearling supplies. Some is thick, some is thin, they'd lend themselves to different designs. It's not in season just yet, so I don't expect to finished with the shearling til the end of summer. It will cost a lot and I don't expect to make many. Good shearling material is 3-4X the cost of the lambskin - that's comparing the quality of the finish on the leather side of the shearling to the NZ lamb we use. It's expensive, needless to say.

    Thanks for the insight. I would love to learn more about the materials that will be used as supply lines are finalized, and more information about production becomes available. The expected increases in price (right? I don't suppose that there's much profit to be had in a $710 shearling jacket made of quality material) doesn't suprise or bother me, as long as the design is appealing and quality standards are upheld. I would much rather have my money go to the folks at ToJ than I would some fashion house. Edit: Actually, it turns out that you did comment on how you wanted the shearling jackets to look, and that's DEFINITELY in line with what I would like to see/buy. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

    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)
    Those ideas sounds interesting.
