Unfortunately, Vanson is having to close up for the next couple of days due to the major snow storm hitting the East Coast.  The good news is that the waterjet leather cutter is finally repaired and as soon as the leather is approved for production (we had previously been told that the leather had been cut, but this was not exactly the case), the Daredevils will be be cut (which takes only a short time with the waterjet) and in stitching!   
 Nothing yet...we're just waiting for the Daredevils (double rider) to come through production and then we'll focus on the moto.  The project hasn't lost its place in the Vanson pattern queue, but this queue has had a major bottleneck since last July!
 That is an update we would have given in September or possibly October based on estimates from Vanson's pattern dept. at that time.  If you would like a refund on your deposit, we can process it immediately, no hassle! 
 This has been a frustrating issue because it slows down all production, but the jackets were in the process of being cut this past week and we should know a little more once the work week starts!  Once the jackets arrive, we'll give a detailed post with all information for ordering and what jackets are still available for immediate shipment (not reserved).  There will also be lots of photos!
 Unfortunately, we aren't in control of the production process, so the timeline is out of our control.  Vanson has had to deal with several setbacks recently that have slowed both the patterning process and production, so we're pleased that the Daredevils are finally in production.  We will have an update on Monday or Tuesday...the Vanson production manager has been traveling for most of January.  We've had many inquiries, both through email and over the phone...everyone...

 Hi dieworkwear, The doublerider design (Vanson Daredevil) is just starting to get through production after a long time in the pattern department.  The moto design is still in patterning and it will likely be a while before we see it come through...we'll post an update once the pattern is finished and ready for production!
Just got this cool photo from a customer...this is a custom Aero Sheene in black CXL steerhide!   www.thurston-bros.com
