silver zips would be even more awesome

.... and you may get one, eventually.

Probably no go on the black leather backpack. That's a very fine line to tread and depending on the leather choice, many of them end up looking sort of Wilson's leather. That Ervell looks nice in that photo (that south willard photo has been floating on the net for 6 years now or something) because of the leather choice (deerskin?) and because of the way he's holding it up, mostly - and that's now really how it looks on the back, in conjunction with other clothes. We have deerskin but it's a bit different than that (French, and thinner, for gloves)

Here we go with some price changes, pricelist 1/11/2013 (as always, subject to change due to unexpected currency fluctuations and commodity line increases)

A little complicated in text, pay attention only to the materials that interest you, for simplification:

All lamb leather jackets in black lamb: 780 ($45 increase over 2011 pricing)

For Bombers, and CWU, brown is also $780. For all others (rider's style jackets) - please add $50 so that we may dye zipper taping to match. All colors except for black, brown is a dye for fee color in rider's jackets.

All goatskin, $820 (black) - All Rider's, and Bombers. Brown extra, if not a Bomber/CWU style.

Heavy calf suede: only available on Rider's jackets, $780

Calfskin: Only available on Rider's jackets 820, black (colors extra again, for zipper dying)

Lamb suede only available on T-1 and T-3. $780

Shirt and Trousers currently on hold (we ship extant orders and then further orders are on hold, impending seasonal break for those two makers)

I've decided that the Baseball is going to be discontinued. 1/18/13 deadline for those.


Discontinued materials: ivory lamb. Some of the Italian calfskins are sold out.

I will come with a color chart a little bit later. I will try for accuracy but bear with me, as a computer can't ever display the depth or multi-tonality of dyed leather or suedes.

Here's a sample of what double-needle diamond quilt looks like , for reference: (ignore coloration, iPhone 3GS photo)

FFFFFFFFF baseball too. I took solace in the fact that TOJ12011 was going, because I could get a baseball....1st world problemzzzzz.com

Increases all seem pretty reasonable. A brown goat bomber may still be forthcoming...

A 52 in the TOJ1 2011 for a 40" chest makes sense, right?

Anyone with similar chest or a 52 in the TOJ1 2011 can provide some insight? I know what sleeve and body lengths I want.

Someone with gigantic balls needs to use that burnt orange.

With the shirts trouser thing, are those guys churning out less or more items than the leather guys? The wait time seemed about the same, but no one has posted pics yet frown.gif

Thanks for understanding man, and everybody - I've put a flat ~$45 on all the prices to cover the supply line side/forex change. We should've done a 2012 schedule but I never got around to it and it started getting a little hairy towards the second half of the year. Labor and margin are remaining the same as they've been.

Sounds right. I'm a 39-40 and my 50 TOJ1 is too tight in the shoulders/lats.

Is not burnt orage, it's a dark whiskey actually - ignore the photo coloring as it's from my iPhone under fluoro light. Going to correct using photoshop, in my grid of colors I'm working on.

Pants and shirts, those people are just telling us to hold off for a bit, they're busy with other work and we'll hit a week holiday in mid-Feb with CNY, so we'll probably get the greenlight after that. There is a load of trousers going out in tomorrow's shipping.

A $45 price raise seems more than reasonable to me, considering how much leather jackets are going for (Rick, Julius, etc).

I got an estimate from Charly that my shirt may or may not get shipped out until next Friday, making it around 12 weeks.

Hopefully I'll benefit from being a sort of early adopter with the MA-1 in terms of wait times.

I would size based on your shoulders. I have an almost 41" chest but 18" shoulders and I got the 50. It was snug in the shoulders when I first got it but it has stretched out a bit to be a good fit.
