    Shipping is included in the price, and they ship anywhere. (I think?)

    Regarding this calf-worry that's going on, calf is only trouble if the fit is too small. If it fits you, wearing it and breaking it in and it getting comfortable works. I wore my calf 2010 bomber pretty much all day every day last winter and into the spring until it got too warm. Now that it's fall, I'm wearing it again, all day, every day. Months of wear in this thing.

    ^Pics please.

    Are calfskin jackets noticeably warmer than lambskin or is it the same? Contemplating getting a used 2010 moto in black calfskin. I have a grey OG moto in washed lambskin with covered zippers, so they're pretty different but still the same style jacket, I don't know if it'd be redundant. Dont wanna be RFx status (no ofefense to him) and play mix and match.

    You don't want fit pics of 42 year old men, believe me.

    Not even that amazing leather plus snakeskin jacket from the previous few pages is going to erase the memory.

    is it wrong that I notice every leather jacket worn by others and think to myself "that leather is shit compared to TOJ?":fu:

    Can't make this philly meet up, but hopefully this is only one of many. getting measured would be way easier and more comforting to know the measurements are exact.


    Yep. :nodding: You're just missing the panel where I'm crying in the shower.

    I compare everyone's jacket to mine. ALL SHALL FALL

    Also I've worn it basically every single day since I got it.

    never know; somebody with a crazy (but reasonable to make) custom idea may come and I may be down to make it. :eek:

    Also, a bit of a somber post in celebration of 11/11/11 that will strike here at midnight; I gotta do the small price increases now, I've been putting it off for a couple months. The bottom line is hurting a bit.

    Lamb leather has increased in price by over 35% since I started buying it two years ago from my supplier; I am not sure whether the guy is scalping or what, but it's the lifeline of TOJ's jackets. Calf has also risen about that much, it comes and goes in availability, but it's about the same story but rarer. We just need a little more compensate for the increased material cost at this point, and are not multiplying that by the factors that normal entities would have to do to price a product.

    Leather jackets are $735 now, for basic black (also brown on the Bomber and CWU-45). Non-standard colors are still the same 50 extra because that zipper dying cost has not changed.
    blacked out hardware and zippers are a free option on the black leathers, and not available on any other color.

    VTG leathers, same price, $810.

    Baseball jackets are discontinued.

    Peacoats, same price, $495

    Duffle coat will be $515

    Fishtail will be $550, as last year.

    TOJ1's, the ones that I've been really needing to adjust the price on from the get go, are $380 now. I'm thinking about discontinuing that model sooner or later, as it was the fall model.

    Classic shirts (OCBDs) are still the same $120, but I'm thinking of discontinuing those soon too.


    Overall, just a few bucks here and there to keep the pieces going.

    Prices are effective immediately. (if you've had an email conversation going with Charly before 4:17am Nov 10 EST in America, then you're still okay to pay the old price)
