    Hahaha! Cycling through TOJ jackets I see! And you still haven't had enough time to break in the FQHH. Oh well. Too bad you're not my size but it's not like I have the funds to purchase those jackets anyway. :embar:

    I am still really interesting in what types of jackets you'll be coming out with in waxed cotton. I remember you saying you might have more technical stuff? Might be wrong but is there any news on this? Just curious.

    Question for you guys on the zippered moto sleeve cuffs: Do you ever have any annoyance or anything with the zipper getting in the way if you're sitting at a desk doing stuff, or it getting caught on things when you're just going about your day?

    Disagree. Other than the TOJ1 I'd say most pieces are TTS. I actually sized down a bit on my calf bomber... I'm a 36 chest and its a 45 body (with an inch taken off the sleeves).

    have had the zippers make some nasty scrapes on my leather steering wheel, otherwise haven't had issues.

    are you guys wearing those sleeve zippers open then? They should be worn closed to prevent that...

    Drew, what did you do to your vtg jacket that "damaged it beyond repair" if you don't mind me asking?

    By any chance did anyone who's 5'7-5'9,150-160 order a size 50 TOJ1. If so how did the fit work for you. Curious, because I'm sure I'm between 48-50.

    Cheers

    I did - got a 50 with 1 inch off the sleeves and the body length. I'm 5 ft 9 155ish. 40ish P2P, 18ish S2S, etc. - provided body measurements and then deferred to the suggested sizing. Haven't gotten a chance to wear it out yet, but seems promising.

    I got a shortened 48 in the 2010 DR. I'm 5'10'', 165lbs, 42inch chest, 17 1/2 inch shoulders. It isn't sausage casing tight but not baggy either.

    drew, would you say that the calf and lamb that you buy is the same quality in each run/batch?
    i know that there are special coloured leathers and vtg stuff but is there a difference in the leathers that you always stock?

    I think we are actually in agreement. My comment was in regards to pieces with noncustom sizing, like the TOJ1, and you seem to agree that the TOJ1 is not TTS. my experience with custom-sized pieces (calf bomber, VTG CM, like your calf bomber) is just like yours--my sizing is between 44 and 46.
