I will see if I can come up with the cash. If I can I came up with what I will probably want: BODY COLOR:LT OXFORD SLEEVE COLOR:WHITE POCKET TRIM COLOR:Navy SNAP COLOR (snaps generally match body color):White KNIT COLOR (collar, cuffs, hem):Navy STRIPES ON KNIT TRIM? Yes STRIPE STYLE (Single, Double, Triple; feathered or not)Single STRIPE COLOR(S):White Sound good?

if you go by the info on this link, a 34 would be:

body width: 52 cm
sleeve length:\t86 cm
body length: 62 cm

some questions:
1) are there options for lining color?
2) for the feathered stripes, do we get to pick all 3 colors? or does the "border" color come in black by default?

anyone know of any labels that use their sweaters? I'm assuming you can't buy directly from them.

If this goes smoothly I'd be happy to do a cardi run. (Or if someone else wants to, go ahead! I dunno what the minimum is on those.)

It's my impression that the pricier japanese jackets source their own fabric--I've followed up on a couple of special requests and been told they don't stock melton colors other than the ones I posted. That jacket seems to be hunter melton w/ brown leather, and hunter is not on the swatch sheet. I think forest might be close, but probably too green to really replicate that jacket.

Sorry the swatch sheet photos are mediocre, I got my camera back today and I may be able to take a natural light pic or two soon.

I actually want a really loud one. Like bright pink and white. EDIT: So which model of jacket is this? Is there a picture of the barebones one we'll be customizing?

This would be great. Kind of hard to see what the darker colors really look like

This jacket is pretty close--except we'll have snaps rather than buttons. You can choose, as isn the order form, body color, sleeve color, trim color, pocket trim color, snap color, and stripes/no stripes on the collar/cuffs/hem. FWIW there's no pink.

Thanks to Nathan at Farinelli's for taking these pics of the swatches. The darker colors are still hard to see, I'll see if I can get higher res shots up maybe this weekend.

They should be in in September. Note that the deal is not that we're passing orders through one by one--we're getting an order together and making it--one time.

Good to see you on board They don't give pantone equivalents but I can try and match them on my pantone guide. Maybe this weekend.
