    Then thats gunna be absolutely it from me. Maybe just the anniversary piece depending on what it is, which I hopefully will win the raffle for then I promise that is going to be absolutely all you are gunna be getting from me lol.

    That's what I keep telling myself.

    I'm assuming that ToJ has some scrap leather or suede. It would be cool to cut the leather into thin strips and use them as bracelets. Either a single band or a simple braided bracelet. It would be a nice touch to have a simple leather bracelet from the same piece of leather of your ToJ so on the days you're not wearing your badass Double Rider, you can still have a piece of ToJ with you and feel badass about it.

    The leather we use wouldn't make that nice of a bracelet, garment leather is a bit different from saddle leather. Most of what is left over as scrap is in odd shapes, has grain defects, or has holes/scars and therefore get cut around when patterning. Kinda looks like leftover pie crust scraps by the time everything is said and done. Little scraps get used to pad machines, prop up wobbly tables, wrap handles of stuff, it gets used somehow.

    News update: TOJ totes we ran out of and are waiting on a fresh batch to get made still, they're supposed to be in this weekend, so we are gonna ship this week's stuff on Monday (Sunday for you dudes) and it'll arrive two days later than usual. Apologies there, but I figured people would freak out if there was no totes in the packages this time. They help protect the goods in transit anyway, so I like using them.

    Some might be or they might bring them to me as a batch. There was a couple defects in the first few and I trashed them and sent back for re-makes.

    This might be stupid but a lot of the ones in this thread are, so why not try. Thought of a possible name when I was reading Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics.

    Vice/Virtue.

    Okay, the new brand name is

    GOLDMILL

    I also like PARTISAN because it contains "artisan" and partisans are badass.
    so you could write it like P.ARTISAN

    Aw, you should've just gave those away.
    Throw a tag on there that says second quality, so people don't question the rest of the TOJ stuff.

    I just see potential for women's undergarments here.
