    I personally want one too. It's just a matter of finding the right materials for it. The idea will be on the backburner but I'm not promising anything.

    It's probably a nice idea if they have something special in mind, but I think that it's hard to beat something like the Buzz Rickson MA-1, for the price, which, given the low Yen right now, is well under $500. The absolute margins on something like that, MTM, to be competitive with something like the Buzz Rickson, would be pretty low. I can see a production version of it. But MTM? Lot of overhead for very little gain. Of course, Charly and Dan would know their business better than me.

    And I know you already posted the zipper pulls, but what about zipper options? ie Excella, RiRi, etc?

    Highly doubt this will happen for a few reasons. I'm actually still wondering to this day, how the original ma-1 TOJ did, manage to get gore.
    Goretex is not a face fabric. It's a mid layer fabric, membrane as they call it, that comes in various levels, and you need a license to acquire a certain level of that. They're very strict on who is able to get it as you need to show professionalism in your product to acquire it.

    Awesome! Now my 6'10" self has a chance to get an awesome leather jacket!

    Any chance of quilting on the M1 (moto) being an option in the future?

    Add me to the non-leather MA1 crowd, as long as navy is an option.
