yep, ToJ prices have been steadily crawling up, but so has the construction quality / cut / materials to the best of my understanding.

also, looks like the winter varsity is being discontinued. I'm not too sure, but fwiw I think they will reintroduce it as a regular (not winter-heavy) raglan varsity, can't be bothered to find source.

All good things must come to an end. So, the time has come for the final round of raglan winter varsities.

Orders for them will close on the 20th at 11:00PM Seoul time.

They are $350 USD (worldwide shipping included in price).

Available colorways:
all-black, solid color trim
all-black, with white striped trim
all-chocolate brown, solid color trim
black body, purple sleeves, black trim with purple or white stripes
loden green, tonal loden green sleeves, loden green solid trim
light grey body, white sleeves, medium dark grey trim with white stripes
navy body, cherry red sleeves, navy trim with red stripes
navy body, caramel sleeves, navy trim with white stripes
navy body, beige sleeves, navy trim with beige stripes
cherry red body, beige sleeves, cherry trim with beige stripes

not true

drew has said hes raising price because he has to pay IRS now. so that explains the most recent price hike but he has been increasing is prices steadily every few months. he entered the market with like $500 leathers and $250 varsities now they are $700 for leathers and $350 varsities

lol, you say not true and then proceed to say something completely irrelevant that in no way shows that construction quality / cut / materials have NOT been improving.

@Sponge: the first (non-winter) varsities DID use stuff like silk and gore-tex and RiRi as far as I know, but honestly the cut wasn't too fantastic. And I think the first WV used regular leather as opposed to lambskin, not sure how accurate your statement is. Leathers were without doubt upgraded in cut (just compare the old bomber to new, and imo the riders looks a lot more streamlined too) and I'm also pretty sure they upgraded the zips too -- i THINK they didn't start with the ball zips.

@AllenFang: WV's end Jan 20, better order quick if you want one haha. They're just insulated jackets, I've heard about Canadians being fine with them for winter, for what it's worth.

@solepower: email them to ask, Drew / his team are very helpful for most things.

lambskin isnt real leather? the change in cut has nothing to do wiht the price raise he is just improving his product because he wants to and its completely subjective what maybe more attractive to you maybe different for other people. anyways ur speculation means nothing because DREW HIMSELF has given reasons for the price hikes so just please stfu

ToJ varsities are out of production as of 10 minutes ago or so, I believe (give or take an hour).

Also, some pics of a newer model.


Alright, we had to make one last FIshtail Parka sample before our run gets sewn up (fabric is all laminated and cut for assembly, and so that means it's just three pitches and they're done at this point) because I tweaked the sleeve taper and had to make sure it worked before we gave the go ahead to run all the coats up. Everything else is the same as you saw before, but this time I wanted to show you the lining, because I changed it ever so slightly for performance;

- before, I'd planned on outer (wool) - lining (sateen cupro) - (wool) -> 2oz polyfill (faced in the same cupro).... so it was gonna be double wool layers. But I realized that was adding weight and not high performing enough for what I wanted to do, so we took that liner jacket's outside and turned it to cupro, but internally we added a third jacket essentially, of windstopper and taped the seams. (the material sample is pictured below, last) - it's gonna be warm as hell. The windstopper and taping, you won't see, it's inside the liner jacket. You can see the button-out liner in the lower pics, the sleeves reach to about 9/10ths and then button on there.
The windstopping fabric and that white taping is also used in things like North Face jackets and Dainese motorcycle jackets, it's good stuff.

-Also, the only other thing I ran into during the preparations/making of this coat was that the grosgrain tape we're gonna have on these, there was no dark olive grosgrain, so (only) olive green Fishtail guys: your coats will have the grosgrain strip done in the same wool fabric as the shell, to match. That only applies to olive coats, the rest get grosgrain. So to illustrate this, we made this second sample with a self-fabric strip where the grosgrain was on the first sample. It's just for illustration purposes as i said, and only the few guys who ordered olive need to worry about this announcement.

Anyway, no changes from the first sample essentially, besides the thing about the green tape, and the fact that we upped the inner liner with windstopper and seam tape. Still 100% swag juice. I was trying to take a photo of the coat on my baker's scale, but I didn't know the scale maxed at 2 kilos. suprised So I don't know how much this weighs, but obviously more than 2 kilos.

Onto some pics....






Anyway, watch for these to start rolling out.

TOJ makes really good clothes. I've kept everything I purchased from the temple, except for a calfskin original DR because it didn't fit me too well in the shoulders.
