That's what I was told as well.

i mean, the patch isn't that big of a deal to me and i actually prefer the pockets of the older ones

doubt there will be any drastic changes this time around
Well, the newest leather additions to the menu feature a lot of details that the originals didn't have. Upgraded linings, new/upgraded hardware options, additional back seams (big +), a new way of stitching down the 2013DR's epaulet&cuffs (+++), etc. I think they'll continue to follow this trend with the bombers.

I'm not sure how "we're discontinuing the bombers and will eventually release new ones when we're not busy" is being construed into an impending product announcement. You guys could be waiting a long time.

A new way of stitching down the epaulets?

"Small announcement that will turn into a big one"

This is the part I'm referencing.

yeah, the cuffs also seem to be finished like the 2010DR sample (which i assume differs from most 2010drs that came after it).

The epaulet folds over, and then goes into the shoulder seam, rather than being sewn straight in. They've added a seam that you can see at the front, around the armpit, which continues to the back of the jacket where the sleeve starts. Very nice touch.

You can see how this differs from the original here:

EDIT: these pics also show that there are now double rows of eyelets and thus a cooler buckle n stuff. satisfied.gif

Ordered an A-2 yesterday. I think the additions (placket and patch) to the bomber for the 2011 version were a great improvement but I'll be surprised if the 2013/14 version has any more 'stuff' added to it. Maybe just some tweaks and quality improvements?

12-week estimated lead time, by the way. I was hoping bombers were quicker than bikers but oh well. Can't wait.

The bombers are quicker than the riders. I've been waiting for almost 6 months.

that announcement confused me because i wasn't sure whether it meant what you're asking, or if it meant that he was just making a small announcement that would be "big" to those following

don't know if that makes sense. might be stretching with the latter

Speak now or forever hold your peace on those I guess, and we'll come out with a new Bomber at some other point when not busy. Maybe a deadline of two weeks?

Read this again, people. The entire thing and not selectively.

It is not hard to understand.
