Is there the possibility custom order the jacket with a leather with less of a shine to it? I know the shine would go away with wear, but it bothers me. The weight of the leather also looks really heavy, how does it compare to the leather used on the Junya collabs?

 

Vanson doesn't have a less shiny black leather (we don't count Vanson's less expensive Firenze leather--it can be shiny or matte, depending on the batch).  The Z150 leather of the Daredevil is the same leather used in the Junya jackets.  It will definitely get less shiny with wear!

Don't forget the black snap-off fur collar!  This option is available for $150.00 and you can order it right now, even if you've already taken delivery on your Daredevil (or Derby) jacket...just contact us to place your order!

I'm considering it.

 

After TOJ Drew gave me commitment issues.

I think this project was a success. How about a fur collar A2 next @Thurston Bros, please?

Wouldn't mind one in the same leather. Full placket.

Haha.. As someone who was waffling between an Aero A2 and the Daredevil (ultimately deciding on the Daredevil), an A2 project run by Carrie/Wade would be a no brainer for me.

count me in for a slim, long bodied A2 :D

Regarding an A-2 project, we might consider it if we get enough Daredevil orders...keep in mind that we already offer custom A-2s from Aero in a wide variety of hides and colors!

Now that the dust has settled and we've fit (almost) everyone who wanted to get into this Daredevil production batch, we have one lone jacket left--a size Medium Daredevil with a red floral liner that is available for immediate delivery! 

 

If you are interested, you are welcome to contact us directly, or you can check out our ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/171792255580?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

What are the options for those who are late to the party? Were these all MTO?

You can order a Daredevil at any time!  We're just finishing out a large batch order that will go into the queue with Vanson shortly, but you can just get in on the next batch...  We actually found that almost all of our orders in this batch were stock sizes with just a few changes like liner pattern, snap-off fur collars and hardware color.  Most folks felt the stock size worked well for them...

 

Take a look at the size chart on our website (Daredevil Measurements) and if you want to get started with an order, just contact us at info@thurston-bros.com!
