1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Forged in the darkest fires of Mt. Tojikawa, this jacket gives +15 to armor and +∞ to swag. Made from undyed, vegetable-tanned calfskin, it was stitched together, hide by hide, in purest dark, so that those laboring over it it did not lose their minds when they looked upon it.

    One of the most impressive pieces of clothing I own. Heavy stitching, solid metal hardware, and a truly unique patina. This jacket will continue to darken and soften with wear. In ten years it will be amazing. Right now, it's probably at the softness level of new TOJ calfskin (although I have never handled that), and will continue to mold to the wearer's body. I have oiled it a couple of times, and given it one coat of obenauf's for water resistance, but I haven't put enough wear on it to really see more than a little bit of creasing. It is honestly closer to some crazy artisanal CCP piece than your usual TOJ CM.

    This leather is no longer available, and makes the jacket pretty special. I'm not entirely sure I want to sell it, but I tend to reach for softer things when I go out, and could certainly use the money. Ironically, I wasn't worthy either. It makes me pretty sad, but all things must pass. A good jacket for bikers and rough-wearers; I think this thing could stop a train.*

    The final note is that the right cuff isn't perfectly aligned. This doesn't affect wearability at all, but does result in the slight bowing of the cuff. I've pictured this.

    Measurements are as follows:


    Men's VTG collared moto:

    shoulders, front 18.7"
    Shoulders, back 17.8"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 22.7"
    midsection 19.3"
    waist 19.6"
    body length, front 24.5"
    body length, back 26.8"
    sleeve length, from shoulder 27.0"
    sleeve width @ pit 8.2"
    sleeve width @ elbow 7.0"
    sleeve width @ cuff 5.8"


    It will fit anywhere from a 50 to about a 53, I would say. The chest is fairly generous, and I can easily layer a sweater underneath. However, it still looks as slim as any TOJ. A truly great pattern.

    Original retail was over 800$ - not the same as standard calfskin. Price includes shipping within the UK. Get in touch with me if you're somewhere else, because this jacket weighs a lot.
