Keep it in your locker?

what does feathered mean?
If I can get scans I can show you, which is easier than explaining, but it's essentially a border on the stripe, so e.g. a single white stripe on a gray, but with thin black lines where the white meets gray.

Not my intention, anyway--the original point was to settle on colors that pleased the most people since we (at the time) had to order all in the same colorway. I liked a jacket in the original thread (from the CKM site) that happened to have those colors, and liked the zip jacket in the dark red color with red sleeves that was so popular (sorry we can't do all those details this time around).
Plus, once we talked to Centralia and were able to take orders for multiple colors, I figured it was worth it to open the buy up to people who might be on the fence about a jacket but want a different colorway.
Oh, and I don't know for sure where Fuuma's from (I assume an arty, designer country I haven't even heard of) but IMMSMC he lives in Toronto.
