I wish this daypack had come with suede tassle pulls, I might have to add some too
post #33647 of 40756
Well the day has finally come, I ordered on March 6th and I waited over 5 months but it's too hot to wear right now anyways so it doesn't really matter.

First off, I have to comment on the quality of the grey plastic bag my jacket came in. Paying the extra money for lining the bag with bemberg and unzipping with the YKK Excella zips was definitely worth it. After dropping $380 on the jacket, you don't wanna cheap out on the packaging.



Now on to the jacket.....I don't have much natural sunlight right now and it's hard to capture the colours with these energy saving bulbs. The colour combination came out better than I had imagine. For those that want a dark jacket but with a bit more contrast, I really recommend Navy/Grey instead of your Black/Black or Navy/Black.



The grey is a nice pewter colour, it actually matches my Hermes belt.

The melton wool is fantastic now, very light weight. Very breathable and it has this tightly woven texture when you look at it upclose.



This is probably the most accurate colour out of all the pictures.

The goat is very soft and I do like the pebble texture in small amounts, not in an entire jacket though. I find it shows imperfections a lot more easily than lamb. I have a few small bumps and they show a lot more than my A-2 Bomber in lamb.



I am 5'9, 150 lbs. as a reference. The Size 48 fits me pretty good.



I'll see if I can get better pictures in natural light when my GF swings by tomorrow.

Anyone know if it's still possible to order a daypack, or has the ship sailed (I emailed JC to check, but am impatient).

post #33650 of 40756
No
post #33651 of 40756
No, no one knows, or no the ship hasn't sailed?
post #33652 of 40756
Ship left port.
post #33653 of 40756
It's a no as in not available anymore I believe. It's not on their listed available products on the JC website.
post #33654 of 40756
Yeah, a lot of us were dumb missing out on that.

They recently moved the Helmet bag that was in the main gallery to the "Discontinued Models" section :(

I still don't see how the interest wasn't there for a run, maybe there was just a very vocal minority because the bag still gets brought up all the time in this thread.

Wings + Horns all black varsity.....$880.

Seriously get your TOJ0 if you haven't already, you won't regret it. And I'm a big fan of W+H myself.....you're not going to get TOJ quality at this price from other designers.
