How hard is it to train the BCDR lapels to sit like this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

instead of this: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Worried about how floppy it will be in lamb when open. Looks so good zipped though.

I can't imagine it would be too difficult, it's a skin after all.

Just rest an object on top of the lapel and desired shape you want over night and I'm sure it'll form that way over time.

That and just weraing the jacket and molding it as you go should keep the jacket in the shape that you want.

i was under the impression that floppy lapels was just part of the design of the bcdr.  even if it's trained, i can't see how it doesn't flop at least a little when you move/walk

This is probably accurate. I like the jacket in static shots, but not sure I'd feel living with it.

It's a lot worse in photos than it is IRL.

If you tried to form the lapels you'd end up with big creases going down the front of your jacket. I wouldn't buy a BCDR with the intention of wearing it open very often.

After wearing it out a few times it tends to stay (at least that's how it looks on my girl's bcdr)
post #33008 of 40753
well, i'm in a dilemma


i've thought about it and it'd be super impractical to just plop down $800 on a jacket right now

but at the same time, i might never get a chance to buy a toj



toj isn't gonna stay dead forever, is it? no, right?

but if/when they come back, will m2m still be an option do you guys think?


(sorry if dumb questions pls don't crucify me)
post #33009 of 40753
There's a very real chance that Toj never comes back, and if it does, M2M will certainly not be an option. It's been on the cutting room floor for a while.

nooooo

This is probably bad real life advice, but good styleforum advice.

Buy the jacket now, regret later. Eat Ramen for a few weeks and you'll survive from the financial hit.

You're never going to get made to measure from this quality ever again.

Even when I was over in Italy and Turkey were the quality of leather was exceptional, TOJ leather still surpasses that with the quality of the lamb and also the style and cut.

Yeah, but at the same time, i only just found out about TOJ like a week or so ago. And I'm not that into fashion (I mean, I've never even measured any part of me or clothing before for Christ's sake, haha). I'll probably have a tough time getting the right measurements...

But then again, I am trying to get into some of the more higher end stuff. I worry over whether I'll truly be able to appreciate the M2M aspect of their jackets (and that I'm wondering about this probably means that I might not? idk), though.

I also wonder over whether if they came back but with stock sizes only that that might actually end up being better for me since I might mess up measuring myself.



hmmmm

So basically I just:

- get a jacket that I'm 'okay' with the fit of
- get the measurements of it (and put the measurements I'd prefer in parentheses?)
- take a picture of myself in it
- get somebody to measure myself
- e-mail all of that info along with my height/weight and the kind of fit I'm looking for and Charly will do the rest?



Or does he need correspondence with somebody who knows more about exactly what they want to make sure of everything?

Measuring yourself is not that difficult. The tutorial should answer all of your questions... if you are still unsure provide body and jacket measurements.
