    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Expecting my black lamb Collared Moto in the next 2-3 weeks. Going to place another order as soon as it comes so I can make the cutoff date.

    Since this might be the last opportunity to acquire a TOJ piece, I want to go for one of the makes that both epitomizes Drew's brand vision and would complement a black CM.

    I'm considering one of the following:

    - medium grey lamb MDR

    - brown goatskin MDR

    - brown lamb A-2

    - brown lamb CWU-45 with ribbed collar

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Everyone should have a lambskin MDR. Although I do love my calf one, lamb would be much better. At least for me, I feel that that's TOJ in a nutshell. :)

    I ordered mine in calf... then switched it to lamb... and just switched it back to calf this morning :embar:

    Sticking with calf for the MDR. Hopefully a lamb A2 to come.

    none of these beside the brown A2 really encapsulate a quintessential TOJ imo, but the brown goat 4-zip MDR would be really nice. Do not get a brown CWU, that is stretching that idea too much, it belongs in black.

    Is a brown CWU really that strange? The CWU picture on your website is even brown. I don't know the real heritage of the jacket though.

    Drew did announce that he will be taking a break over the summer that many are interpreting as "last call" to an undetermined length of time TOJ Will be on leave

    Not sure what color whiskey I ordered. It's whatever lamb that was available, I just looked through the gallery and asked if it looked like this: http://toj-gallery.com/main.php?g2_itemId=9716. I love GBear's 4zip, that's the one i'm hoping to get.

    Thanks for the heads up. The medium whiskey is fine, it'll get darker with age i'm sure. I will also likely coat it with some sno seal which always makes my leather darker anyways.
