    Around here, it would still be kids wearing Ed Hardy shirts and TR jeans, driving Ms and AMGs with tinted tail lights. I think only RFX will understand that. :embar:

    Neither. Once you've lived in Korea for any considerably stretch of time, you move to Japan for existential reasons.

    ^That's understandable. Living in Seoul, anyway, for an extended period of time can wear anyone out, especially as you get older.

    Living this out for you :slayer:
    Wearing 2010 DR on campus is full of win, trust.

    It must be like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Ford Pinto in term of having expensive clothes in undergrad when most of your classmates show up in t shirts and basketball shorts, haha.

    Not if it means that the MTM disappears, the quality drops off or the price moves out of reach.

    I love reading this thread and learning more about TOJ philosophy. Really excited for the winter pieces :)

    Same here, but it's seriously the most dangerous thread on the forum. I saw the VTG collared moto and immediately started figuring out when I'd have enough saved up to buy one (it didn't help when I realized that the answer was "now" or "next month"), even though that would make no sense whatsoever because it hasn't even gotten cold enough for me to start wearing the DR I bought this summer on a regular basis.

    I know exactly what you mean. I live in Texas and told some of my friends I was thinking about picking up a TOJ piece, they just looked at me like I was insane.

    VTG looks like a very intense piece in all aspects. I hope all you wanters know what you are doing.

    I will probably get a black moto +1 inch in length but need to give it a month or two. I have overdone it lately.

    A little confused by the TOJ1 chart-

    What's the camo lining on the Camel and Brown colorways? Is that the Camo #2?

    Would it be possible to get the Light Grey colorway with anything other than grey or tiger stripe lining?

    I'm actually just fine with TOJ being on he down low and sticking to its roots. But if the Drew man wants to get rich, then I wouldn't mind. Do you, Drew man.

    Teehee, maybe I'll run a model for drew in my downtime. But no, at your figures, 3x Enterprise value would mean 30x EBITDA + change, not that drew has any depreciation or debt, really. $ vending machinee indeed. I hope his margins are at least above 30%, for all the swag he's been dispensing.
