I do want to point out that this is pretty much the Vanson Derby Jacket...here's the the jacket being photographed for the new Vanson website...the overall "look" isn't as stylized as what fashion folks present, but it's pretty much the same jacket...  We would just want to get folks sized properly!  Alternatively, we could create something new...
Something like this (absolutely!)...we'd design from the Vanson VAJ-3 (below), which is the same fit and close in the overall design...we can't make a copy because Junya W. sells that particular above design...

Weight Leather is what they're famous for...I've attached a photo of the Vanson Star Jacket below because it shows a number of different leather colors in Comp. Weight leather...  Vanson's Comp. Weight Octagon is very nice too...  and, again, the Comp. Weight Black is what they're famous for....   There is a lighter weight leather called Firenze, but it won't get the...
