Are you sure about that? I have seen it made up in gold museum before; and the last time I did a JL Paris special order, each model had two lists of leathers: a limited one that cost a 15% markup over RTW retail, and everything else, which carried a 20% markup. In other words, you could do a special of any model in any leather if you were willing to pay the extra 20%. That was probably three years ago, though, so JL Paris's policies may have changed in the interim.
