    Just search this thread for the words WoodYear and you will know more about shearling than you could ever possibly care to.

    My submission. Apologies for the shabby pictures, my first fit pic ever. If only I looked that big in real life...

    Really old wool TOJ bomber, herning, uniqlo, MTO trickers.

    I think the car scene is slowly plateauing, at least with the younger kids. Back in the mid 2000s I would see a bunch of these on Honduhs. I hardly see any modified cars in the wild anymore.

    I've always wanted to visit Japan for the same reason, but none of my friends were able to go. If you're still there in 2013, I will hit you up man!


    This contest will do wonders for the ToJ gallery for sure. I wish I can participate in it, and be a real contender.

    Random discovery: Yesterday, I discovered that you can use peroxide to remove blood from suede (baseball jacket). Gently apply with a Q-tip, let it foam up a bit, blot to remove. Repeat until the color's gone. There's no water spot or any other discoloration; can't even tell anything happened.

    please say you'll do the varsity baseball jacket, or something like it, again this spring.

    and make a 56 because i'm in the process of selling the 54; want to keep it real bad but its just. not. right.

    There was really mild interest in the bball throughout it's run, it was kind of interesting. Never really took off hard, but we kept fielding orders for it and didn't take it off the menu - I could maybe do a clean-slate version of the Bball. I really liked it. I try to keep a few 'cute' items in the lineup, women seem to respond to those pieces favorably. My wife liked the Baseball jacket a lot, doesn't really have anything to say about some of the rider's jackets, lol.

    I would buy a bball jacket immediately. Hell, I tried to get synth to sell me his for retail.

    I do have one sizing related question/request: why are odd numbered sizes (49,51) not available for the non-mtm items? Seems like it would take just a little more work for you guys, but for a significant improvement in the line-up.

    was a special one-off - one of those cases where Johnny Amiga came to me with a reasonable request (ie 'can you make the same thing you make now, just changing the base material with something I know you have?) and then a civilized, reasonable negotiation about the price for such an item.
