I'll ask around but in case no one turns up, can you PM me the approximate charges.....I think the only area that needs taken in is the chest and waist.

Obviously I need to cover postage both ways.

Also.....and this might be the dumbest thing I've asked in the thread......can the mandarin collar part of a DR5 be changed to a DR2 style spread?
I guess I have virtually no neck and the mandarin keeps rubbing against my jaw.

Cheers
Please email us at [email protected] for that.

Can't put lapels on a DR5.

Can you provide some more information on your denim jackets? They look great, but curious what makes these $410 versus other denim jackets. Where's this denim from?

Denim isn't particularly special. It feels nice and looks nice. A handful of people asked for the T1/T3 to be made in denim, so we offered it. Our labor costs are pretty high because we want to pay our tailors for their skill, so the price reflects a lot of that.

Recently received my lamb suede harrington and - wow. This is literally the nicest casual jacket I have ever owned (and I have owned two TOJ jackets). I'm amazed this is an "off the menu" style; IMO this should be one of Falcon's flagship items. The khaki is an amazing color and the website pictures do not do it justice - it is a much warmer, richer color - probably "honey" would be a good description. Also my first experience with lamb suede - amazing material and surprisingly thick, while also being incredibly soft.

Harrington fit pics (the color is somewhat off as it is indoors under incandescent light)


I got the harrington in stock 46 bomber sizing and it fits exactly like I wanted it to (for ref, I am 5'8" and 145-150lbs and stock size S or 36 OTR in most brands usually fits me perfect). Could not be happier with it. I specifically asked for the inside to be bemberg rather than the tartan lining - I don't mind tartan but it's not what I was going for with this piece. They also put leather on the inside of the zipper as I requested so you don't see the lining while it's being worn.



And here is a pic I snapped of my sleeve in the sun so you have a better sense of the true color and lamb suede texture:


Seriously love the Harrington. Almost tempted to order another one in Persian blue (as shown earlier in this thread) or sand lamb suede. Think this would also work well in a light gray lamb suede.

I also got the A2 bomber in brown lamb, also a stock 46. First impression: wow, the armholes are really high up. Wearing this feels tighter around the armpits than some tailored suit jackets I own. If I were doing this again, I might order a 47 in the A2, or get them to custom widen the arm holes. The 46 Harrington in comparison is more comfortable.

A2 Fit pics:


I have owned two of the A2 bomber jackets from TOJ. Compared to TOJ, the lambskin is thinner and lighter, and a tiny bit less buttery soft/smooth (being brand new vs. worn might be a factor in this, not sure). I also noticed the leather appeared somewhat 'wrinkled' and semi creased in spots, perhaps due to being folded up in the box - hopefully that goes away with wear. You can see it around the midsection on the right pic. However this is still a high quality product. My Falcon jacket is completely free of veins, unlike my TOJ. The Falcon version also has nifty inside chest pockets with a vertical zipper.

Turnaround time: Amazingly fast compared to TOJ, where I waited nearly 2 years for my last jacket (I went through the entire Google sheets debacle and was probably one of the last people to get a jacket...) I paid Falcon for the jackets on April 2nd. Received tracking on April 20 - so just under 3 weeks production time. Received jackets on April 24th.

Overall - super happy with the Falcon experience. And the 10% off made these a steal! One feedback I have for Falcon: maybe get higher quality swatch and product pictures so people have a better sense of color and the high quality of your product. The real life lamb suede was much nicer than I was expecting based on the website pictures. Had I known the product was this good I would have probably pulled the trigger long ago.

Nice write up. Still regret not getting on the gore-tex harrington.

Any chance you'll offer a selvedge, raw denim in the future? Doesn't have to be anything crazy...would just prefer it to the current denim offerings.

Hey, I'm curious, what kind of zippers are used specifically when the YKK ones are chosen?

If I’ve even helped convince anyone to order a suede Harrington, then my work is done.

I'm trying to get some real-world color feedback on a few items. Can anyone share photos of the following colors? I'd be very grateful!
  • Medium grey lambskin
  • Dark wine lambskin
  • Dark grey calf suede
Many thanks!
