post #901 of 2082

I guess I could go with something like this….although silver zippers pop a bit more and I wouldn't mind the silver snaps on the lapels.

 

BTW, I read that this is whiskey calf….very nice…just what I had imagined….I think it will age very well.

Could we get some fit pics of the DR3? With rear view, side, zipped, unzipped, etc.

We will have pictures on a mannequin in a few weeks time for the website launch.

For now, you can look at the TOJ DR since it's basically 99% similar.

Hi Charlie

 

If you had to take a stock size and then shorten the sleeve length plus the widths at bicep, elbow and wrist…does that count as MTM?

 

Cheers

Any adjustments to stock sizing will count as MTM.

WTF would MTM mean otherwise?

No offense but, +1 :facepalm:.

Good news for the website even if it means more order, more wait.

Thanks Charlie.

 

Mickey, to address your concerns, some boutiques in Asia will sell you a garment and charge you a nominal fee for alterations in length/waist.

 

Different from going to a tailor who measures every part of you…I understand that as MTM….so just trying to clarify, and I'm ok with Falcon's reply on this.

 

If you keep responding to every dumb question of mine on this thread (even when its not addressed to you), you're going to be a pretty busy man.

Hi Charlie

 

1. What's the difference between a bar and a tab zipper…I tried to google images and got a bar hooker instead.

 

2. Does the shoulder gusset of a leather jacket have any functional use or is it purely aesthetic?

 

3. Ive noticed some jackets have snaps on both lapels and collar tips (4 in all) while some have just 2 on the lapels. Is 4 snaps more of an ornamentation for ladies jackets? Most of the mens designs Ive seen on the TOJ gallery seem to have just 2 snaps on the lapel ends. 

 

Cheers

Did I even reply to any of your previous messages? If I felt compelled to log in and reply to your posts it must be that you're asking pretty dumb questions.

This is the affiliate thread for all questions directed to the manufacturer….its none of your business what the level of questions are…not everyone is an advanced connoisseur of leather jackets as you presumably are.
 
By haranguing me, you are disrupting the business I am hoping to conduct with Falcon.

I don't think the 3-zip DR2 would look any better if the waist pockets were moved closer in towards the zipper (if that's what you were suggesting).

And for the A2 if you wanted to move just the handwarmer pockets, their position on top of the flapped patch pocket would look off. If you wanted to move the whole patch pocket inwards though that might work.
I think one of the older iterations of the TOJ A2 had pockets like you suggested. Edge of the pocket was in line with the beginning of the ribbing on the hem.
  Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I had this TOJ 2010 A2 iteration with these pockets, loved the poppers though the hand section was absolutely tiny. Granted, I'm 6'3" and have big hands, but I could barely fit a fist in there... If they were edge of pocket and the size there are now maybe a tad larger/lower/further to zipper, they'd be perfect.

 

Though I realise that Falcon aren't bespoke, so unless others felt the same about decent pockets, unlikely they'd change so you could fit hands into the currently useless flaps.

 

 

 

In my mourning that older A2 and fantasising about Falcon being bespoke. I'd love to have a super minimal black A2 with:

- Pocket modifications above

- Poppers on flaps (buttons a bit dated/fiddly)

- No epaulets

- One piece back

- Hidden placket front zipper

I just used a set of calipers to measure the thickness of the sleeves on a few of my jackets. I took multiple measurements across the length of the sleeve (folded it and divide measurement by 2).

  • TOJ MDR ca. 2013 (black lamb) approx. 1.27mm thick.
  • TOJ A2 ca. 2011 (brown lamb) approx. 1.50mm thick
  • Falcon Varsity ca. 2015 (black lamb) approx. 1.22mm thick
  • Falcon MA-1 ca. 2015 (black lamb) approx. 1.53mm thick

Post #2 is very clear…I should've looked there first. Thanks.
