    I sent a prelim order, but am still waiting for payment from a couple of people in order to close things with CKM. PM with your email address if you want to hop on, but I would need information and payment by EOD.

    Varsity came in today, not in country but my bro snapped some pics for me. Blue is lighter than What I was expecting but I think it came out great. Hopefully it fits well and thanks again negusnegas for putting this together

    I've been in Mexico City for two weeks and got home late last night to find my varsity waiting for me. A few quick iPhone photos don't do it justice... it's really beautiful. I went for a navy wool body with "willow" leather sleeves, navy/"old gold" mixed knit trim, "old gold" snaps, and the rare "Donkey Collar" that I'd seen on a few Japanese make-ups. I think mine ended up being the most expensive of the bunch, coming in around $240, which is still a steal, as far as I'm concerned. A big thanks to Tito for handling everything.

    First picture is I think the most accurate, color-wise. C'mon, gents, I wanna see how everyone else's turned out!

    I prefer the regular collar or shawl collar. Could anyone else please snap few pictures for us?

    Will try to take a pic, but overall pretty satisfied. The process was cumbersome and tok incredibly long though.

    Yeah, I was super happy with my jacket, and I think I'm one of only a couple that posted pics. The process was a little, uh, low tech, but also kind of charming. If you're prepared to wait, shouldn't be a big deal. I'd also suggest scoping out Japanese sites for inspiration... there are elements that CKM doesn't really advertise that they're capable of (different types of collars, pocket placement, etc.).
