    the pocket flaps are too much flash. TOJ seems to have always been a understated high quality remake of classic pieces, and the massive leather pocket flap seems--dare i say, ED HARDY ESQUE.

    I like the stitching. It's also supremely functional - they keep everything together, as you can see from the shot where you see lining peeking out.

    i think its a little busy, but if it's functional i wouldn't mind it. is the back straight? no vents? dual vents?

    i think i might get my girl either a coat or a leather jacket and a pair of oxfords this christmas

    No pocket flaps. The throat closure looks good as is, but did you consider having it offset and having more of a tab closure?

    Really like the throat closure, and the stitching detail around the toggles. So torn on where I stand on the pockets, though. I really like the flaps but either option is going to make this coat look amazing. No flaps would give it this minimalist dark-fashiony flow. flaps give it a brutal, utilitarian, post apocalyptic military feel. Horn on the wrist seems like a bit too much, though. It's really cool when you look at the wrist straps themselves, but in the context of the rest of the jacket, maybe they're more toggle than the jacket needs.

    how about leather wrist straps? I think that would be a nice touch.

    yay.

    throat closure looks good.

    get rid of wrist toggles.

    not that im buying one, so ignore me, but my 2 cents. (my TOJ fishtail > duffel, :slayer:)

    Looks great! How about open angled patch pockets?

    Don't like wrist straps in general.

    The stitching looks good, adds visual interest and frames the straps nicely.

    Not a fan of the leather pocket flaps, looks a bit cheap and blingy. The flaps on last year's duffle were perfect -- why change them?

    New toggles and straps look great, very tempted to pick up another duffle now actually.

    Throat closure looks alright with the jacket lying down, but I'd be more interested in seeing how it looks when actually wearing it with the hood down.

    Btw. any chance of larger hoods or adjustable size hoods? I got last year's duffle which is great, but the hood is too small for me. Long neck + head = :(

    Sounds like a nice idea. The leather flaps don't look that nice in the picture but might be the poor picture quality that ruins them. Might be that they blend better together with the coat irl. Throat closure looks nice and kind of like the small wrist strap toggle.

    The new duffle is nice but I must agree that I'm not really a fan of the leather flaps/new wrist straps. I hope the chesterfield stays close to the original, that thing was perfect.

    yay

    edit: i like the horn on the cuff (at a minimum, should remain as an option).

    and hand-warmers.

    Leather flaps would look really awesome if they didn't button down, but were just flaps.

    Do those pockets have side entry as well? I can't tell from the photos.

    Horn on the cuff is a bit much, moving the buttons there would balance everything out.

    Two button throat closure instead of the flap is a nice touch too. When worn buttoned up does it end up giving that shape tech jackets give where there is a sort of bowl covering up your neck and chin, flowing around into the hood? I love it when coats do that :nodding:

    Still a really beautiful coat though. First time I've seen the ToJ duffel and I like what I see!

    No button for pocket, no wrist strap, handwarmer for pocket and allow us to choose neck length and hood size.
