    On the measuring, is there any word on the next time Charly will be in NY?

    Yeah that's perfectly reasonable, but what you're describing is exactly what I find appealing in it. I could never fully pull off a fringed leather jacket with tassels in 2011, as much as I may want to, so I'm drawn to something like this where it's rustic (ugh) in such a way that reminds me of something of that vintage, while somehow being very "now" in my eyes. At the end of the day I'm still an #americana kid, remember. That said, I should probably be looking at one of your A2s instead. Gonna keep following this thread to see when Charly is in NYC next :marchal:

    That's Charly's cue but I imagine he will be there very soon, I know he was just there eating Crif dogs recently. You guys do have to realize that it's not a traveling service considering NYC and we don't put money into that, so if you want to be measured you will need to meet with Charly at a prescribed time and find your way there. I don't want to spend money on that side of things because it'd raise the prices for everybody worldwide, and in response the service is there but like I said, I can't spend money on it and it'll be at Charly's decree.

    If i gather I thinl that means you have to go to Brooklyn to see Charly. Willy cheesesteak only gets up at like 7pm, otherwise I'd have you guys try to see him for measurements in Manhattan on commission. :eek:

    Oh yeah I don't expect him to come out of his way here, but if I find out he's in town next I definitely want to buy him a beer or two and get some measurements down.

    Like Drew said, I'm doing this as a service to you guys :)

    That being said, I will be in NY next weekend. I will probably have some time to meet on Saturday afternoon/night, the 3rd, in the EV or Soho.

    If you want to come get measured, please say so, so I can plan this out.

    I'm down, but I don't want you to go out of your way to make plans, and then not come through. Have no idea what i'll be doing, or where I might be next weekend.

    That's the thing. For those that say you want to come, be positive you're going to come. Because if I plan this out, I'll be there and I don't want dropouts.

    It would not make for a very happy Charly.

    That's true, you guys in Tokyo are always welcome for a measuring for a TOJ, false has taken advantage of it, waiting to see who else's body is ready for me. I am around town all the time, but Tokyo is kind of dead clothes-wise lately. Too bad they don't realize TOJ leathers are coming in at the 5X,XXX yen level nowadays with the exchange rate.

    I'm up for a beer and a chat next weekend in the soho/ev area. Don't really need to get measured though :)

    I'll be in NY during christmas if you're around there it'd be kinda nice to get measured even though I'm not set on a leather yet
