DR3 -

Really happy with fit, exact measurements as listed. 

Leather quality seems good, no veins, not too thick. looking forward to breaking it in.

some things i am disappointed with...

The belt is to not wide enough, it needs to be chunkier/thicker, looks like it belongs on another jacket. I'm wearing it without the belt, so the belt loops look out of place, almost an afterthought. the belt loops themselves could be thicker too. Why don't you use the styling on the epaulettes and make the loops in the similar style? would tie the jacket together a lot more. 

The lining falls far substandard to any high end jackets I own. feels really cheap.

But overall a great jacket which I'm stoked to have bought, great for the price.

 

Can't have had a better buying experience, answered all my questions, 2 week turnaround from purchase to delivery.

looking around at various brands, i don't see any where the belt loops are comparably sized to the passants. anyway, how about a pic with the belt on?

passants?

linguistically it's a mess. Some say that what we call an epaulette is really a "passant" and that epaulettes are things that go on passants--fringed padding and various other bits through military history. the wikipedia page reflects this.

but i just noticed merriam webster says that epaulet is the primary spelling, and that it does mean the strap nowadays. so that's nice i guess.

I've always gone with this definition; to me it makes sense to distinguish between the straps themselves and the little dangly things that hang off of them. Also, I'd like to see more people who wear jackets with passants hang epaulets off of them. Or it should be a requirement, along with knowing how to poach a damn egg,.

@notwithit i live for linguistic specificity, but seeing that passant isn't in any English dictionary as meaning a shoulder strap, it sounds to me like the distinction doesn't really need making, and indeed, i've never seen it matter. if it was important, the distinction would have developed in English. And I'm pretty happy that epaulet can mean "any of that shoulder stuff." It's a lot easier that way.

Yeah...I think the problem is that too many pieces of clothing have passants, and not enough people wear epaulets. I've always thought passants look kind of stupid in most contexts (and have been horrifically overused in fast fashion over the past several years). I suppose I can accept the idea of calling any kind of strappy or dangly shoulder embellishments epaulets, but I'm certainly not happy about it. confused.gif

For those that are wondering.. that is the DR5. Available with a single pocket or double pocket (as shown) on the right side. Available with rear-facing or front-facing zippers.

Will officially be available once we launch our site.

But if you want to jump the gun, shoot me an email.
