    I just bought a TOJ calf-skin bomber, here are some pictures.

    The second pic, the lighting is weird hence they funny ribbing colour.

    This leather is stiff, and the lower ribbing is kinda tight. I can fit a hoodie (as pictured) underneath and zip it all the way up but it is tight.. but I was told leather stretches (duh) so I'm wearing a hoodie underneath it and walking around the house lol. Calf takes a while to break in, but its durable.

    Comments?

    Also, share your leather jackets!

    That is a really nice jacket. Perfect fit too, just how leather jackets are supposed to fit - tight. :-D

    Exactly should have mentioned that in my post. I want a leather jacket badly actually, but I don want a cheap one, and I have other things I should be buying, so it'll have to wait probably till I get older hehe.

    Sift through that thread, three American guys based in South Korea, they design and make leather jackets and other things. Basically its MTM, made to measure, they ask you specific measurements, they give you guidelines on how to measure yourself and the customer service is just amazing.

    That is the bomber jacket, but they offer other amazing styles with various leathers; lamb, calf (mine), goat, horsehide..
    The cheapest is lamb ($650 shipped for the bomber) and $675 shipped for calf, not sure about the other leathers.

    Definitely check them out.. well worth the price, I've looked everywhere for decent leather jackets, looking at $1000-$1400 jackets that aren't even made for me.. this one was tailored for me, they do such a good job with the measurements it is insane.. the price includes shipping and there are no duties because they send it as a gift.. best purchase I've ever made, couldn't be happier.

    Email is templeofjawnz@gmail.com, guys name is Charly, message him and talk to him - amazing customer service

    Seriously, if you want a leather jacket tailored to your style, hit these guys up - amazing.
    Here is their gallery: http://toj.pixi.me/main.php

    Some of their stuff is discontinued, talk to Charly and see what you like.

    Enjoy, the quality is just beyond me... will take a while to break this calf leather in because it is so damn durable but just the smell and texture of it is incredible.

    great thread, I have been looking for a nice leather jacket for a few years but don't really want to spend a huge amount of money...how long did it take for those guys to make and ship?? It seems like it would take a while no?

    Well basically you contact them, they ask specific measurements (providing guidelines) you then measure yourself and send them in. You send them the money through paypal and once they receive the money they start working on your jacket.
    From the time I paid them through paypal to receiving the jacket at my house, it took 3 weeks.

    Welcome to the TOJ club ;-)

    I wear one too

    This is an older version with oblique front pockets. I have enough room to wear hoodies underneath. Like it that way. Very solid jacket. I love it!

    Yeah, well I went with calf which is durable and stiffer than lamb.. calf takes more of a beating. I found it pretty damn warm.. probably can't wear it when it hits -30C, but for weather like last night it was fine.

    Time to go into a final exam now @_@ marketing

    I don't have pics of any of mine yet -- but I have quite a few jackets made out of horsehide, cowhide and goatskin. My Aero A2 and Lost Worlds Roadmaster, made from horsehide, are 2 of my favorites.
