ToJ0 Varsity - Legit Check

Hey everybody, I'm not sure if this is the right place for a thread like this but anyways, I want a legit check on this ToJ0 varsity I just received in the mail. I have two main concerns: 1. There's no logo patch on the inside, just under the neck. I recall seeing the Temple of Jawnz eyeball insignia on some pics of jackets. 2. The buttons themselves are fine but the snap-closure parts are slightly loose, so when I move around with the jacket, the buttons jingle, so it feels like low quality. Here are some more pics: Whole jacket:

Thanks for reading!

Drew would be happy to know he's made it big for someone to counterfeit his products.

That's a Temple of Johnz varsity right there.

Come on dog, TOJ is awesome, but it doesn't have mainstream status like Prada or Gucci. Why would anybody be interested in replicating his products with such a small audience that even knows the brand exists?

That's legit, dude. The mini blue checked cotton shirting lining for the body and the silk herringbone sleeve lining both check out. ToJ0s also had the jingly snaps whereas later editions of the varsitys have higher quality snaps. Also, since this was ToJ's very first product(when it was originally meant to be just a project for fellow forum dudes who wanted a slim fitting varsity), Drew didn't anticipate how popular it would get or how eventually this would become an actual brand, so tags weren't made yet. Tags only started getting added on when the ToJ1.5 Winter Varsity, the ToJ3 Harrington and the first leathers(1 | 2 | 3) came out. The only ToJ0s that have a tag sewn in are most likely returns or samples that Drew sewed on and sold during ToJ Samples Sales.

I'd be more worried that someone tried to fake an H&M as a ToJ by removing tags and stuff, but I don't think anyone would fake a ToJ.
