Hi Everyone,

Good news...after all the interest expressed for a Cafe Racer Jacket made using Horween Chromexcel, we decided to move up the timeline for this piece and begin working on it pretty much immediately. We linked up with our friends over at Richard James on Savile Row so we could perfect the fit with the pattern cutter and will be aiming to release this for pre-order in the next 5 or 6 weeks (product samples made, shot etc and pre-orders live). It will follow the same protocol as all our products with Styleforum community so the initial batch will be offered at Naked + as pre-orders etc.

Anyway just wanted to announce it as I got to see the research the guys over at RJ were putting into it yesterday and it is looking like it will be something really amazing.

Best,

Rohan

That's hot...
My hope is that there will be a Harrington type collar option as well.

😍😍 I don't think I've seen that color of CXL before, love it. Will a chest zipper pocket be optional as well?
I agree, maybe add some chest zip pockets on both sides?? Or at least one?

Great! The other day I was thinking about this project and I had an idea. I’m guessing these won’t be cheap. So in order to ensure a good fit you may consider offering a low cost, cheap material, cheaply made, mock up jacket, just to try the fit and rhen throw away. This way one can try on the same sizing as the real thing and thus feel more confident when pulling the trigger.
