You are channelling DIstorb.  Sample making is expensive and time consuming.  It would have been faster if we'd gotten the sample right the first time, but that is hardly ever the case.

Just trying to trigger an update. Trial jacket is out of scope for me I think given i'm cross the atlantic. I just need the size chart/grade with detailed measurements and should be able to order based on that.

I contacted them a couple days ago. They said the pattern is done and should go into production at any moment now. They also have to hand cut the leather because the water jet cutter broke so it's taking longer than expected.

Except that Thurston Bros. is the largest supplier of motorcycle jackets in the PNW, and Vanson is a large, national, company.

 

The delays that you see here are due to the inertia of working with such a large company is doing sample making, which is precisely the opposite of the problems that seem to be plagueing ToJ (i.e. one dude stops, it all stops.)

Unfortunately, we aren't in control of the production process, so the timeline is out of our control.  Vanson has had to deal with several setbacks recently that have slowed both the patterning process and production, so we're pleased that the Daredevils are finally in production.  We will have an update on Monday or Tuesday...the Vanson production manager has been traveling for most of January.

We've had many inquiries, both through email and over the phone...everyone is eager to get these first jackets!  It's been a slow process, but we're excited to see the final result!

This has been a frustrating issue because it slows down all production, but the jackets were in the process of being cut this past week and we should know a little more once the work week starts!

Once the jackets arrive, we'll give a detailed post with all information for ordering and what jackets are still available for immediate shipment (not reserved).  There will also be lots of photos!

I know thurston is a stable and well established seller and that everyone will get their jacket, I just mean that if I have to wait months for the sample + months for the jacket it isn't worth it for me, I'm not into long drawn out processes for clothing.

That is an update we would have given in September or possibly October based on estimates from Vanson's pattern dept. at that time.  If you would like a refund on your deposit, we can process it immediately, no hassle!

There seems to be a lot of options for mtm leather these. Might have to finally get one soon.

post #1543 of 1543

Unfortunately, Vanson is having to close up for the next couple of days due to the major snow storm hitting the East Coast.  The good news is that the waterjet leather cutter is finally repaired and as soon as the leather is approved for production (we had previously been told that the leather had been cut, but this was not exactly the case), the Daredevils will be be cut (which takes only a short time with the waterjet) and in stitching!
