    It's warm man, I honestly can't give a guarantee because that's a human condition thing. What you see in the pics can give you a good idea. After having been out recently and checking out coats, I do think the TOJ coats are almost exaggerated in their thickness and warmth compared to what else is out there. Your only other choices that I honestly think would be warmer after that are huge down puffy things or mountain coats for sports.

    hahaha, yeah they both look great, I'm desperately trying to avoid anything overly puffy because stuff like that ends up looking terrible most of the time.

    Fishtail or duffle... decisions, decisions...

    This got missed in the bustle, but it's a fine example for those who ask what the lambskin looks like 2 years on.

    Alright, one last post: just received my burgandy FQHH 2.2 bomber and I thought I'd share some pictures (seems like it's been well worn). Glad to finally have a jacket I don't mind beating up. This jacket just might be favourite TOJ yet, everyone should consider buying an A2.

    Anyway, the colour's a bit darker under natural lighting - the burgundy really shines through under yellow lighting though.

    Is the CWU-45 available in calf? Thought the dude who makes bombers doesn't like working with it.

    I'm jealous.

    Damn, it's probably that FQHH that probably put the bomber guy over the edge...

    Wow the leather and its colour in the close up shot look fantastic. Probably would have tried to get one of these but I wanted the shearling too much :embar:

    //he lamb leather is accentuating the creases I got by an accident instead of erasing it.

    That is light blue broseph. Get a Mac and never have color calibration troubles again.

    It's pretty stiff :) but to be honest, it's not much thicker than TOJ's calf leather. The FQHH is squeaky too lol

    The reddish hue looks awesome under yellow lighting. What bomber did you get?

    When I saw it, I had to have it [​IMG]


    Thanks man [​IMG]

    I keep hearing this talk about intense "drop" making the jacket hard to cut or look weird. Anyone wanna explain to me what the hell "drop" is?

    The colour on this is beautiful.

    4 weeks and 1 day in and no tracking number today. Fingers crossed for next week.
