Order date =/= production date or order, shipping day, order, etc. Unless you ordered the exact same jacket as slack tide, like 10 minutes after him, it's unlikely that your jacket would follow his exactly. There is not a correlation to timestamps when you're making things in the quantity and assortment that we do.
The whole concept of batches seems to confuse a lot of people. I think it'd be a lot easier if you just lied and told everyone the shipping date was 3 months from whenever they ask. They'll stop asking, and they'll also be surprised when you ship "ahead" of schedule.
haha, that is true, but I'm just trying to be honest here, and that was the honest answer - we don't know exactly. We have a general idea, but if you give people an inch, they want ten more, yada yada yada....
Someone mentioned something a while back about the medium grey lamb having a slight brown undertone to it. I'm working from home and staring longingly at my BCDR (it's currently 90 degrees outside), and I have to agree. It looks pretty rad, and I'm pretty sure it gives me further justification for buying a black moto further down the road.
Any kind of suggestions or thoughts before I put a new-age varsity up? More discussion on this please. Kinda returning to our roots here....
Seems like Varsities are pretty simple and doesn't need much modification from the original outside of maybe different pocket design and even in that regards you can really go too far off the original design. Maybe add a chest pocket as an option?
Are you considering using or providing as an option different materials for the wool part? There are varsity jackets out there that use nylon but instead of nylon maybe some sort of tech, waterproof materials? It may sound stupid but I'm just throwing things out there.
The first collar looks ok but I don't like the thick ribbing. I don't like the second one at all, collar just looks out of place to me.
I like collar roll on this Junya x CDG varsity, I never owned a ToJ varsity so I am not sure it can be folded to look like it has a lapel-like look but it is something I'd like to see tried on a true varsity jacket.
