    I've ordered the suede baseball jacket. Once I get that I will prolly do the suede blouson - in blue if I can get it. The bombers are great as well. I would do the varsities if he had it in my size.

    It's Motos and the Riders that don't work for my old man self.

    The design is kinda weird, but eh. The lamb in that isn't very good lamb, looks like the cheapest stuff they sell at the wholesalers. How they can sell them for $350 though - wtfux. :( I'd be paying you guys to take my jackets at that price.

    I wish everybody could own a CWU-45. That and the A-2 are like, the apex of what we do. It pains me to see people change their minds from getting a leather to getting a varsity, because while the varsity is nice and interesting, the leather jackets will be one of those things that has a quality and visual statement that is really something different in person, while having this lasting quality where you'll want to keep wearing it year after year. If the TOJ1 was like, say a Nissan 350Z, then the A-2 or CWU-45 would be like a BMW M5 or something.

    Anyway, I am doing emails again. It's taking awhile because the questions are kind of out there, sizing is a headache. If you're waiting on a reply from me, hold tight. :eek: I'll call for bumps when I clear the list and it looks like everything is read/responded to.

    I handled this jacket in person and it sucks. They do have jackets with nicer leather but only one or two use something that even comes close to TOJ leather. And those jackets they don't list on the websites or anything because they're specifically made to ship off to Japan and sell.

    From Drew himself, free CWU for everyone!

    Keep it in the same family, at least! 350Z to GTR or a base 328i with halogen to an M3 GTR.

    A2 vs. Minimalist DR, any thoughts? I can't afford both but am having trouble deciding.

    Also, have you sent any jackets to Thailand? if so, any problems with customs? taxes here are maybe 50% on imported shit and i can't shell out a grand for a jacket right now.

    Really depends on the look you're going for.
    ToJ DR's always struck me as more edgy.
    While the bombers more conservative.
    Both great jackets, just depends on your style as a whole.

    I'm a 2010 DR owner myself, so I'd say go for DR :slayer:
    Then again I might be a bit biased :lol:

    Really depends on your personality and body type. DRs aren't really flattering on endomorphs, bombers can hide it better due to a slightly baggier fit. You're gonna end up with both anyway, so its just a matter of which one first.

    I went for DR first too.

    Well I'll probably reorder a size 46 because I tried the size 44 on and barely could take it off haha.
