    Sizing in Japanese leathers run on the small side. Actually, that's an understatement.

    There is a size 5 for the jackets but the measurements aren't listed.

    Well yeah. These run smaller compared to the designers you mentioned. I can fit in a size 3 in Julius and 3 or 4 for TVA.

    Thanks. Jacket looks good. I don't have leather experience but I like the look and feel.

    I also like the Lewis Super Monza. Unfortunately starting price is like $1500 and they are based in the UK.

    Yes, similar designs. The Cascade dates back a long time and the Lewis design is also decades old, both classics. If you start emailing with or calling over to Scotty at Langlitz, he can get you out a catalog plus a current price sheet. Note that the best resource for what is available on a Langlitz jacket is the combination of the three sites below, which are the Langlitz Japan sites that contain hundreds of good photos of custom jackets. They can replicate any of these, or you can pull out elements that you like for your own design.

    Thanks man. I actually have an eighty-something weeks TOJ BCDR in the making. Still, I like learning more about other brands I havent heard of. Langlitz probably is one of those.

    +1, a very grainy hide makes the jacket look "broken in" from day one, and gives a little extra pop to a classic jacket. I like what they've done with it.

    Jun does make a 5, which corresponds to a 40, pretty much, or a smaller 42.

    RMC does not customize its jackets.

    Pricing depends on from whom you purchase it. MSRP in the US is approx $2,000. That said, I just hooked up another SF member with considerably more favorable pricing. PM me if/when you are ready to pull the trigger.

    thanks dude, but the no side pockets is probably a deal breaker for me on the jacket

    @LA Guy Is the potential Johnson/Honourmark jacket going to be styled off of the jacket below or did I read that incorrectly?

    It is, but that is about as terrible a picture as has ever been taken. For one thing, Shaun is a six-pack kind of guy, with fairly straight shoulders, and he looks like he has really sloped shoulders and a case of beer, in that picture.

    I'm going to try to get better picture up sometime.

    yea, must be a bad pic, but the rippling in the back of the neck and the tapering (can he zip it?) makes it appear too slim. 5 zip is still my favorite silhouette, still dont know why that fit can't be replicated.
