    New styles are rad, I think Synth would look cool in the vest.

    Nipples = HARD Especially with the vest. I was never a fan of any of the double rider models but I am really feeling the vest one. The bombers look fantastic too. I really love the arm pocket on the 2nd one, Im a bit iffy on the angled pockets and name patches. I am kinda missing that _l_ back design on the 2010 bomber but am really liking how the gussets are just around the arms. (One problem I noticed with my 2010 bomber was that I it often got something hooked into it like a door handle lol.) Curious, are those browns the same just different lighting or is the first one whisky? Sons of Anarchy cast. ToJ them out. [​IMG]

    Brown and black lamb. BTW, no more calfskin Bombers. There is a disconnect when you put all the pieces together, as the detachable collar has to get a lambskin piece on it, calf is too thick and the guy doesn't like to work on it and won't put the buttonholes on the pockets if its calf, etc, etc. I prefer lamb anyway, so lamb it is.

    Very nice work. The new details speak for themselves. I especially like the pocket buttons.
    Is the A2 sample in whiskey? And does the CWU45/P have the same back as the A2?

    looks great. love the rider vest, would rock. might be a stupid question but are other colors of shearling feasible? ps drew I knew you like your little details but I have a feeling a lot of people are gonna want to opt out of the suede name patch [​IMG]

    Love the new bomber, thank you for bringing back the fur collar, makes such a difference. I think they look great without the collar and that's a wonderful minimalist aesthetic, but the collar just make it so cool, and creates wonderful proportions and lines.

    Agreed on the collar. Thank you for bringing it back.

    I'm really loving the remixed A2 bomber, as well as the arm pocket on the second jacket.

    The new bombers are stupid good.

    Seriously my favourite ToJ pieces ever... Even to the level of the whisky quilt DR I fantasize about.

    What I mean is, the two bomber samples seem to have different shades of brown.

    Damn new A-2 is dope

    What about suede? Could I get dark grey lamb suede new A-2 with a removable shearling collar? Black? Natural?


    Shearling on full suede? That would be.... [​IMG] ... because:

    I figure some will not get the name patch, but it's honestly one of the coolest things I've put on a jacket, so if people opt out of it, that would be a shame. I've put leather everywhere and even in places you didn't expect leather (the back of that fishtail parka's hood, for example) and just this little tiny strip of suede on the Bomber does a lot - it breaks up the chest nicely, it has an immediate thematic reference that most people can get, and it's one of many textures in a jacket that seems 'boring' to some. You have plush shearling, naturally grained leather, a bit of soft suede in the strip, polished horn buttons, a metallic zipper - then you add on to that by incorporating your various layers, take the shearling off half the year and wear oxford shirts and tees, put the shearling on and wear differently textured knits and shirts in cooler weather, and then beyond all that, the fit is so different on the TOJ compared to a traditional replica Bomber, it's immediately noticeable. This is the beauty of the TOJ Bomber.
