    price, style, zippers, attention to detail, swag cuffs, someone to size and work with you regarding how you want it to fit, a really long wait, admission to a certain club, and fur (sometimes).

    No. We need staggered sizes and it's nearly impossible to get a matching set of the size mix we need. We can offer Breitling instead, and we'll cull the clocks from these:

    kinda like how people compensate with more expensive cars to feel more status when in reality a hatchback could get you from point a to point b just as well?

    i had a BS jacket and I had someone to work with who was helpful... had to wait a couple months, and I guess the whole club thing is a mentality. So at the end of the day the differences (so price, "zippers" "attention to detail" and "swag cuffs") are subjectible to the consumer

    im not trying to be that guy here, i just wish toj was more in my price range for what it seems it's really worth when i can get RO stuff for less than half of a new TOJ. even if it meant painting my own hardware black & doing my own manual labor to get that "special expensive brooklyn leather daddy club" effect

    Y'know, a sand suede Harrington is still an object of desire for me.

    I ended up submitting both types of measurements for sizing, then had Drew look them over and make the necessary changes.

    Thanks, man. :)

    I don't know if that statement has enough holes in it or what - but yeah I can buy a well-used Ferrari 308GTSi for the same price as a brand new Camry - what is your point?

    which part, the part where you said you wish it were in your price range and that you can go buy RO 'stuff' for half as much? You were asking for tl;dr answers, so I gave you a serious response before, and now I am trying to humor you.
