i'm sure it's a sample
why are people still talking measurements and options when manufacture and delivery has stopped?
Wow, 5 boxes go returned, that's like 6 mos of production.
july 2013 order, still waiting, that's an absurd premise, even with the announcement and influx of orders.  congrats on beating the rush.
that update said absolutely nothing tangible.  we're in exactly the same sport, with most likely exactly the same likely conclusion.  so jackets that were ordered in nov/dec will batch with ones from jun/july when it looks previously like single style batches only encompassed like maybe a month of orders?  the last a2 batch to go out(not a very custom piece), it made up like 3 weeks of orders.     update buyers on the status of specific jacket styles or your plans for...
it's time to employ other means of communication, whether it be a slew of paypal cases, press, locals tracking him down at the restaurant, whatever.
what's one reason not to process refunds and tell people to find a replacement in line?  wouldn't you prefer one jacket leaving the queue at this point?  the only tangible reason is a lack of money to process a refund and they'd rather push that little tidbit back as far as they can.  thank you dieworkwear for taking the time to put all the reasons down, i think several of us wanted to do the same thing but haven't taken the time.      no capital, leather inventory, or...
This isn't a nominal sum of money nor merely handful of people affected.  at a minimum you've got 200+ jackets in the "queue", most likely an amount well above that.  toj has taken several hundred thousand $ of payment for goods with no foreseeable delivery date and no communication either publicly or in this semi-private forum.  deliveries have slowed to a trickle, whether or not all orders came from SFers, we represent a good cross section of orders and attributes,...
agreed on sizing mcclean vs. original 1k, look and feel to be the exact same fit, if measuring right out the box on both.  CXL stretches quite a bit, relative to other leathers, so you will find older pairs fit larger than brand new.  
mid-july 2013 order on an a2 and not a hint of expected delivery nor a hint of an update, good times.  the "small staff and other(food) priorities" excuse is garbage.  deliver goods or provide updates, updates aren't the ridiculous chore you make them out to be.
