Just echoing someone's earlier desire for you to offer the MA-1 in tech fabrics...

No suede? Specifically, no diesel blue suede? And channel quilting for the MDR?

That's roughly what I had ordered (well, it was a QDR). If you can make me this jacket I will order from you and I will just change my TOJ order to something else just in case some day it magically arrives.

Is there a writeup somewhere describing the various hides you use?

Hi Guys!

Daniel here. Just wanted to thank you guys for the warm welcome and wanted to ensure everyone that Charly and I will continue to make jackets and evolve with the love and support from the styleforum members. It's been quite a year for all of us here but we hope that we can put the past behind us and move forward with creative input from our customers with tailorable options and fits, and of course leather options. Financial and production logistics have been tightened and jackets will be capped so orders go out with the utmost priority.

Samples are currently in production and we will continue to update with pictures so please check accordingly. Thanks again guys and much love for the support!

Best,
Daniel

Glad to see this up and running. Now I can lie awake at night trying to decide what kind of dead animal I'd like to see made into an MA-1.



Off the top of my head, I'm thinking goat as one of the most underappreciated and delicious animals.
Goat is really under appreciated. Tough with less stretch but gets the job done.

just to facilitate some dialogue that will eventually arise anyway, what are we looking at in terms of thickness of the various leathers? there was some complaints of the other venture when some jackets had thicker leather than others (particularly noteworthy when a single party had multiple jackets).

this was even harder to gauge when this was intentional as in the shaved ma-1 that no one had any idea was shaved.

is there going to be within reason a spec for the leather ie. for lamb only a certain amount of grain is acceptable and calf having an equal finish and consistency?

i understand the reluctance to bring up the brand but perhaps some figures from that venture in comparison to yours could provide some background for prospective buyer's.
I limited amount of leather vendors to keep consistent with leather thickness and quality. Lamb thickness is currently at 1.3mm. Calf will be a bit thinner at 1.2 for better drape purposes and easier break in. If someone wants a thicker jacket for riding purposes I can also facilitate up to 1.4mm.

All hides will have a certain amount of grain and scaring but I will select all the hides initially and our tailors will ensure leather quality is up to par otherwise it gets returned back to the vendor. Nothing gets cut if it looks like crumpled up shit. We lose out as well so we ALWAYS look for hides with the best finish and consistency.

Cheers!

We offer lamb suede for the A1s currently. I never was a fan of the calf suede since it was a bit too thick for my liking but I'm always on the lookout so if I can source a diesel blue without any hiccups you got it.

I want to play with the quilting specs and put out a sample before I can offer this for production purposes. Will put this on my priority list!

Prussian blue lamb suede Harrington still one of my favorite things to wear.

Regret missing the suede trucker jackets... those were slept on hard too.

Very good news! Do you have any pictures of the tag you'll be using?

I'm currently waiting for my jacket from ToJ, so the discount and everything sounds very good.. Really tempted to pull the trigger immediately, but I'm so worried my measurements won't work. I'd probably have to kill myself, if I ordered a new MTM jacket which doesn't fit, and then the ToJ jacket arrives with the exact same ill-fitting measurements...

Currently no tag. It's a work in progress.

Charlie will size you up properly. You're more than welcome to email him about your current sizing measurements should you pull the trigger.
