    Ah, very good to know. :) I was playing around with the colors, I threw an oatmeal color cardigan under the black DR....I thought it looked good. Will wear DR in the rain with no fear during the 10-15 days of rain we get around here.

    Good to go. Next several weeks will be spent thinking about former Marine Bomber guy hunched over the black lambskin of my CWU-45, beads of perspiration forming on his brow as he carefully toils over perfect, saran wrapped seams lol.

    the bball jacket pretty much slays the varsity imo, not sure why the toj1 blew up while the bball jacket remained nearly untouched

    Wow. This has to be a record. Your whole turnaround took less than a week?!! My shortest wait time was for my first bomber at 3 weeks.

    did you have those jeans hemmed btw? been considering a small break in denim lately or minimize the stacking. . .

    in that picture they are actually tucked underneath, hence no visible hem stitching.

    I did, however, eventually get them hemmed to just about where you see them. I myself also prefer little-to-no stacking for all my pants and jeans.

    Yeah that sounds about right, a little over 3k in pics. Some of it is also from items that were constantly passed around in the SF B/S & supermarket also. Do think quite a few pieces were underrated and that it was because people couldn't see the potential in how awesome some of them could look or even imagine themselves wearing, which is surprising because you would think if anyone were to be able to picture themselves implementing certain pieces into their wardrobe, it would be dudes on fashion messageboards, lol. I still remember when the first iteration of the leathers dropped; the DR and the Moto were getting all the love, then after a few nice fit pics of the A2 came along, dudes finally saw the light, and now all the A2s that have released since then are no brainers.

    How warm are the winter varsities? I live in Finland and I expect atleast -25 degrees celsius, so if I decide to buy a toj winter varsity, will it keep me warm?
