post #1066 of 2069

So has anyone ordered a DR3? I've been fighting the urge to place an order until I sell my MDR that's starting to get too tight.

Although it may be too early to tell since there's literally only one picture of the DR3 (why...?), I'm really bummed out FG didn't just recreate an exact reproduction of the DR2013. Yeah, Voldemort was a huge asshole, but the DR2013's design and details is complete art. I've yet to stumble upon another DR that matches the DR2013's balance of elegance and detail.

The only change are the belt snaps, no?

Key differences include (Dr3 vs 2013DR):

1 - lapel cut/size (its the same as DR2, which i don't mind)

2 - back design (this was awesome on the 2013)

3 - Liver panel, DR3 inherits it from DR1 where there are lots of examples showing liver panel going all the way up to mid back region, rather than being a quarter of the way up. They got this right on the DR2013 all the time, but not on the DR1.

4 - stitching where sleeve meets shoulder. Some DR1 and DR2 suffer from pointy or slight shoulder pad look. The 2013DR removed this issue completely. LAGUY mentioned the technical terms in an earlier post.

FG are just using an old recipe and just feels they've taken a step back (perhaps playing it safe). I have to agree with barramundi, the sum of all parts of the dr2013 was awesome. However there were many inconsistencies with how the lapel was cut and the size of it. The key differences IMO are 2 to 4. If FG are playing it safe, an option not to have liver panel or inherit back design from DR2 would be nice to mitigate the irregularities on how the jackets get made. Although really, they're really shouldn't be and patterns/design and portions should stay fairly consistent across all jackets made.

Would have been great to see the DR3 exactly like the DR2013 with just inheriting the DR2/MDR lapel (or make sure lapel pattern stays consistent throughout).

That's an interesting decision on the Falcon team's part. A bit strange too, considering how gorgeous the DR 2013 was. The jacket just seemed to work, on many levels. There are very few bad fits on the gallery; it's hit rate is very high.

Well.. glad I delayed putting in an order for the DR3 then. Was under the impression that the only change was the belt snaps.

Oh! Yea, that's not a problem. We can do that.
post #1075 of 2069
yeah, that's what i wanted to know when i asked that question about snaps on the rear lapels/collar (i guess i wasn't using the right terminology)

good to know

That's interesting. I know that there are a few places that sell nice shearling jackets (repro style) for under 2K. Obviously different from you guys, but I do wonder if you could put something together for 1-2k. Probably a very moot point, as I doubt that's your customer (neither repro dudes nor dudes willing to spend 1.5k+ on a jacket). Would be cool to see, though.

If you get a chance I'd love a PM with a list. Majorly in the hunt for a shearling
post #1078 of 2069

I'd take a list of shearling shopping sites also

 

wasn't @iamacyborg just talking about getting a custom shearling made of his ma-1?  I mean if FG leathers cost 900 I would think it would be a very similar customer since 1.5K+ isn't that much more

That's just from Daniel's preliminary search. If we were to get serious about it, we'd have to do a bit more searching when we find the time - which we do not have at the moment. Still working on getting new models and the website launched.
