It's great to follow the recent discussion, as I'm looking for a J-100 at the moment. The other day I tried on the Real McCoy's Buco. Really nice, Great leather. It's a bit basic though - only two pockets and no wind flap - I guess this is because it's an exact replica. The price is rather high, compared to similar jackets.

Hey everyone,

 

I ordered a Vanson leather custom jacket late january and have not heard back from them since. Is this standard procedure or should i be concerned?

 

Thanks

That's their reputation, unfortunately. I do know they are in a leather shortage that's currently affecting deliveries. You may want to become a squeaky wheel as they are going to have to fill certain orders as leather supply trickles in.

For women, but pretty frickin' awesome.  I'm going to get a jacket and paint and embroider it for my wife in a similar style

Me.  I am pretty handy with Chinese water colors, and those flowers are all in that style, just with acrylic paint.   I will get the material from some old Chinese tapestries I have, or maybe I'll cut a piece out of an old Cheong Sam.  I have hand stitched leather before.  It's not hard, it's just a PITA.  Looks like I'll need some high guage gold thread.

Finished final sample of the Styleforum x @luxire moto jacket.  This is the unedited fit picture of the front of the moto  (size 40).

 

Just a few more tweaks in the ordering process, the copy, and a crop and edit, and we'll be good to go!  Watch for it.

Is this the intended fit? The shoulders look too wide and the front length looks very cropped (although I cannot see where the jeans are sitting on the hips). Regardless, looking forward to more pics.

The shoulders  are cut in a slightly more modern way, with a slightly dropped shoulder, not unlike the Margiela 5 zip jacket.  It's a bit more accentuated because I have a sloped shoulders and the jacket is open. Though I personally like traditional jackets that have a very high shoulder, it's also what makes them look very "motorcycle".  What you should be looking at on that jacket is the way there is nearly no excess material at the armpits - that is how you can determine where the jacket hits.  I have a couple of dozen cafe riders, a fair number of them custom made, and I can say that this one fits best (it took three sample to get it right, but we did get there.)

 

The length is right.  My jeans hang very low on my hips.  I'll post a back picture when it is ready The back length is 25.5" or so, which is going to right for size 40 guys between about 5'9" and 6'.  Guys taller or shorter will want to adjust that length slightly. for the size.  Once I have one, I will post a back picture, and you should be able to see how low my jeans sit.  

 

Re. the use of the word "cropped", a jacket can be short without being cropped.  Cropped refers to a very specific look in which the length is truncated on purpose - so, on a cropped sportsjacket, for example, the hip pockets are very close to the hem.

This jacket is beautiful. Honestly without the flowers and a change of the picture it could also be manly enough to rock.

I have to agree, at least from these pics. The shoulders look too wide, body length looks too short and the chest pockets look too wide or long.

@LA Guy that jacket would be way longer if motorcycle was part of the equation at all.

Sure, but it's not. It's a fashion Jacket inspired by a moto.
