    Alright, so I was away for a while, but a few days after my return I received a lovely package containing some ToJ whiskey.

    I misread this and thought drew started making alcohol

    Hey guys, never bought TOJ before, but I've been on a desperate search for the perfect white OCBD. Anyone have experience with TOJ's? How to size, quality of fabric, etc? Thanks!

    I have a couple TOJ shirts. They fit tts; I'm a 50 and L fits me perfectly. Quality is nice, the buttons are really chunky and add some nice character. They're quite slim, I usually have to get shirts taken in in the waist/back so they don't look like tents, but haven't really felt the need to with TOJ shirts. A couple things worth noting:
    - IMO, the shoulders ride kinda high (which I don't mind at all)
    - the forearms are very slim, which means rolling them up is, well, almost impossible for me at least. ymmv.

    I got a couple new bombers to put up, including an update of the basic bomber we always make, so the core trifecta of TOJ's (DR, Moto, and Bomber) are about to reach 2011 spec. And man, these things look good. Really good, they look official.

    [​IMG] Think my first ToJ will wind up being Canvas (if i read some earlier posts correctly with re; to fabric). I want to get my order in with the first batch! I've been talking a lot but think it's now time assuming I like one of the summer wears and/or canvas flight jackets. (edit; im saying "flight jackets" like i know whats coming up, but I have no clue let the record show..I don't even know if a jacket will be released in canvas). -with bated breath i await ye releases (n/h).
    +1 canvas flight jacket be cool

    New Bombers. First, a remix of my original A-2 inspired Bomber. We have a return of the removable shearling collar, which I've upsized a bit to heighten the effect of the fur (imagine it popped up around your face) and then I've returned to the original pockets, which I liked. This time we're using conventional buttons for an added touch. Two new parts added; the suede name patch, and the inner zipper placket. Both of these things are optional, but I just love how they look. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] And a new style; this is my version of the modern-day CWU45/P flight jacket. It has even deeper front pockets with an angled entry, and behind those there are horizontal-entry handwarmer pockets. 'Arm office' on the sleeve, and the suede name patch and inner placket flap, which on this one are not optional. They are part of the whole style of this jacket, and they look fantastic. [​IMG] [​IMG] Both jackets start at the same price as before, $710 (A-2 includes shearling collar at the price, it is standard now and all jackets will come with it) and the CWU45 is a little more complex to make, so it is also $710, without shearling collar. Different colored leathers other than black and brown on these are subject to zipper availability and may require a surcharge for dying zipper tapings to match, as we always do with colored leathers - that costs $50 if it is necessary. And the last piece: The DR vest. $490 shipped for black, grey, or brown. Other colors may incur the zipper coloring fee. [​IMG]

    New bombers are amazing. Fine, fine work. Not sure I could pull off the vest though

    Like the new updated A-2, will get one in the fall. Not sure if I like the name tag though, will you actually write the name of the guy who orders the jacket there or just leave it blank?

    they're blank patches of suede. They're just a thematic decoration.
