    I meant for example if I wanted a navy wool with wine lambskin (which isnt a listed option), would that be possible? But its all good. Thinking about either navy/white or navy/walnut

    i like ball & chain style best. the main tab or bar (don't remember which) zipper on my old lamb toj is still the noisiest part of the jacket over the ball & chain pocket zips. the main zipper on my new falcon isn't silent either, and it's a bar. you could diy coat the back of the zipper pulls with rubber if you care enough to do it.


    I don't think there's any non-damaging way to do it. you could probably get a pair of cutters in there and clip off and remove the pulls at their narrowest point, right where they interface with the main zipper slider mechanisms, and then put a replacement piece in there. but there's a lot to be considered there--matching metal color, size, the durability of your replacement parts, aesthetics, etc. I just did some digging online and didn't find any good-looking zipper pull replacements. feels inadvisable to me.

    Does anyone agree that the dr5 might perhaps be a tad feminine?

    Nope. Looks fine to me. 2 slanted zippers on the same side looks stupid though.

    Really not much different than the TOJ band collar DR, aside from the collar...

    how's the thickness of the leather? and did you go mtm?

    also, is the "bony point" of your shoulder basically where your collarbone ends?

    The fur collar is in my closet. I anticipate I'll wear the jacket without the fur 99% of the time, but it's a nice option to have.


    The lamb is buttery soft. It feels good in thickness - not too thick or thin. The only other leather I have is an Aero in FQHH, which is thicker/heavier and frankly hard to wear casually. But it's nice to have options. I feel that at some point the lamb will scratch and wear down much faster than the horsehide.

    And yes, this jacket was mtm, with the measurements based on my Aero and Charly's recs.

    Also I don't know what you mean exactly by the bony point, but I guess my collarbone ends near that point.

    sorry, meant to add that edit as a general question not specifically directed towards you



    i'm gonna measure myself soon and wanted to make sure that i'm measuring my shoulders correctly

    here's a pic of my shoulder:


    [​IMG]



    am i supposed to be measuring from the black line, the blue one, or the purple one to its opposite end on my other shoulder? or are none of those correct?

    i've asked this before in the toj thread, and i'm pretty sure that it's supposed to be from the black line, but i just wanted to make sure again

    Why so? Just curious. I also own a FQHH jacket and I can't really think of any other situation that I would wear it than casually...

    Of course both jackets can only be worn casually. What I meant by the word casually is that because the jacket is so heavy, it feels like a huge effort to put it on, walk around in it, etc. I can't just "casually" throw it on during a 10 min trip to the grocery store. I could with a lighter sweater made of cotton or wool, or even this Falcon lamb. But with the FQHH, it takes effort to even get it on and go for a walk in it. Perhaps the word "easily" should have been used instead of "casually."

    Never seen a shoulder like that before…are you excruciatingly, super model thin? Have you been recently released after a long incarceration? Perhaps you are partial to the smoking opium?

    For me neither of those arrows is right…..correct point falls exactly in the middle of the blue and purple arrows.

    i'm 125 lbs. @ 5'8, so i guess i'm skinny, yeah (is that considered "excruciatingly" thin, though? i've never weighed over 130 in my entire life, so i have like no reference for this type of thing)

    i took that pic with my phone, so maybe the angle is making my shoulder look weird?



    anyway, i found the old pic i used in the other thread and re-edited it a bit (the posture is more natural and the pic was taken front-on):


    [​IMG]


    so would i be measuring from the orange lines, the blue, or the purple? or none of them?
