@Thurston Bros Any update on when people who ordered their jacket in the first batch after fit jackets went out can expect it?

We would estimate that batch will finish production around mid August!

now that someone has pointed out the collar gap, I cannot unsee it.

This is a feature of the jacket and can also be seen here:

 

 

The Z150 leather used for the Daredevil is thicker than the leather used in the earlier Derby/Junya jackets, so there is more stiffness to the collar area.  The collar will relax a little with time, but style/shape of our collar distinguishes it from other crosszip jackets on the market, and we (and Vanson) like it a lot!  Again, the Daredevil and the above Junya jacket come from the exact same pattern...

I actually really like the "collar gap." I liken it to the higher collar on old school 8/10 button peacoats, whereas other DR designs are more like the flatter spread collar on newer 6/8 button peacoats.

I honestly dont even mind the gap even if it doesnt settle.

+1... everyone (or just some) seem to be making a big deal out of the collar gap but i don't mind it one bit.

I also do not mind the collar gap. If they can work out the wrinkle on the bottom lapel that has the 2 hardware studs and make a size between ML and L, then that would be awesome!

Wouldn't a soak help soften the jacket enough to mold the collar?

Water treatment can work really well for shaping a collar--just don't put any clips on it (they would leave an impression on the moist leather)--just use your hands to shape it!

Vanson Daredevil fit photo from a customer--he's going to do some fit mods (extra body and sleeve length, and a waist taper of 2 inches), but the overall fit is really good!  Thus far, only a small percentage of Daredevil customers have required fit modification, but this is easy to assess by ordering one of our fit jackets...
