    i wanted to see the camel color in better lighting before i order
    but i think i will go with the light grey and white sleeves......only concern being the white sleeves will yellow over time and the varsity won't be as nice
    anybody experience the white leather yellowing?
    i wanna wear this thing for like the next 5 years or something and still be swag 5 years down the road lol

    Did the anniversary Harrington jackets sell well? I know they're discontinued, but I've had the hankering lately for a Harrington in a cranberry / burgundy shade. I'd do a search, but searching within a thread now is a nightmare with the updated forum.

    I seem to recall Drew saying he's coming out with a new version pretty soon. Should still be the same basic jacket, but the details might be different.

    I think Drew himself said that each new iteration of a TOJ jacket is better/improved over the preceding

    TOJ1 processed at postal facility!

    I have a midterm tomorrow but screw it, tomorrow I am being TOJ-ed out :slayer: . Thanks Drew for making this happen, I've always wanted a varsity jacket and it is finally happening!

    will post some fit pics when received!

    In my opinion, it has been so far. But honestly, the current run of jackets are so nice that I can't imagine we'll see that many substantial improvements any more (certainly nothing on the scale of how the first jackets Drew did compare to the current ones), so I'd suspect any improvements will be incremental.

    I need to cop a coat before I freeze to death waiting for new jawnz. Looking to buy a peacoat in M if anyone's selling.

    First draft on the 2011 Duffle coat - might edit some small details, based on feedback, The coat is 95% how I want it, but I am curious to know your opinions on the pocket flaps, the small wrist strap toggle, and then the throat closure.

    Not a fan of the pocket flaps. Too bulky for my taste. The wrist strap and the throat closure look fine.

    Was thinking of not having flaps on the pockets, and just a leather tip on open patch pockets - yay/nay?

    i really like it, but could you make the pocket flaps so that if you tuck the flaps inside it looks a regular slit pocket (like how the seams of the pockets on the varsity are lined with leather)?

    bleah i dunno how to explain.

    also not a fan of the stitching around the toggles.

    It might be just the pictures but it looks a bit blingy because of the shiny pocket flaps and the hooks. That type pockets might also make it look bulky at the bottom, feels like it would need matching epaulets on the shoulders for balance.
