    quilted leather is made as such: you spray some temporary adhesive to the backside of the leather, you attach a piece of thin, porous foam that is already cut to shape, and then on top of that you spray more adhesive, and put some cotton on there (the stitching needs something densely woven to hold on to, it'd just pull through the foam if it weren't for the cotton. Once you stitch the leather and the cotton sides together to meet, it pulls on the foam layer in the middle to make peaks and valleys.

    That's amazing. You've brought up before that a lot goes on underneath the leather, but this is pretty intense.

    Just had to ask after seeing the murdered out, quilted 2011 moto in the gallery. That shit's so sugoi that I couldn't breathe for a couple of seconds. :embar:
    I have to make a choice this week, so it's either that, the ribbed collar CWU-45, or the A2 now.

    alright, amateur hour is over, and the fantasy accounting can stop now. I'm guessing nobody who has chimed in on the topic has ever priced a good for sale beyond lemonade. Woodyear must think he is getting $1.50 worth of food in his $2 Big Mac, and the other 50 cents goes to pay everybody. lol. A business genius.

    Too many pages to dig through. Your final decision on the stuff you posted in the forum was peacoat-style slit pockets with leather trim and wrist toggle, right? And everything else is as on the sample previously posted.

    not quite, it's gonna be patch pockets with a lip of leather on the top edge. Most everything else the same.

    Not to big on reading comprehension there are we bows. I said his profit margin is twice the cost of a regular leather. In this case his profit margin would be 1400 (1300 was a math error/typo). A regular leather is 700 some odd dollars. Therefore 1400 is roughly twice the cost of a typical toj leather. Can we move on from this now, ive actually gotten tired of pwning ppl, which till this point i wasnt even sure was possible.

    No, you're fucked. One, because you came and shit on my rug, and two, because you're dumb enough to use your real name as your screenname on styleforum, so it's easy to weed you out for the blacklist. haha.

    I'd advise you to always work in a business you own, or at the very least run, because, son, if you behave in the real world the way you've done on this thread - and you've asked some interesting questions, I'll give you that - random people are going to queue up to kick your arse just to see which way you bounce.

    Learn to ask questions to get answers, not to 'prove' how good you are. Learn some fucking humility.

    Can someone remind me how to re-shape the collar? the right side collar (left side in the pics) seems to be a bit flat compared to the other side and it looks a bit more noticeable without the shearling...

    Forgot to mention that I am having no problems with my hands in the side-slit pockets...

    Shit they do. Didn't realize that haha... Still a bit noticeable when the shearling is on though, but not as much as if I don't snap it down with the shearling off (the point in the snaps I guess)...

    Maybe I'll just let it naturally shape up
