    Gimme a minute to get the poll options up, jerks.

    PLEASE VOTE ONLY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BUYING A JACKET.

    Glad to see all the interest in the first poll. Also all the discussion on possible jackets. I can't try to draw up samples, so you'll have to use your imaginations.

    Jacket #1
    Dark burgundy wool body, gray leather raglan sleeves. Foldover cuffs and collar in burgundy. Snap front. Standard, leather-trim pockets (I assume the trim would be gray?). Standard nylon lining. This has been priced at $122 (not including fees/shipping).

    We don't have a good pic of this but the color of the wool should be like on this jacket

    Jacket #2
    Navy wool body, cream leather raglan sleeves. Foldover collar and cuffs in navy. Snap front. Standard leather trim pockets. Standard nylon lining. Don't see why the price would differ from #1.
    Essentially, this jacket without the pocket goofiness.

    Jacket #3
    Gray heathered wool body, white leather set-in sleeves. Foldover collar and cuffs in black. Snap front. Standard leather trim pockets. Standard nylon lining. This may be a couple of dollars cheaper than the others.
    The centralia equivalent of this jacket but with a foldover collar.

    I'm open for a couple of further tweaks, especially on 2 or 3, but 1 seems pretty set.

    If, perchance, you liked 3 but preferred raglan sleeves, you should've voted option 4.

    This poll is too hard for jocks.

    #3 or #3 with a burgundy body instead of grey. I'm in for either one, as long as it's all wool. Not into leather sleeves.

    I threw in for #2 but could easily go with #3 if that's the direction it goes. I was hoping for a burgundy/burgundy #1 though.

    I haven't voted yet as I want to think about it, but I only want Raglan sleeves, that's a dealbreaker for me.

    Prefer leather, but could be sold on wool depending on how it looks.

    yeah, raglan sleeves are a must. i like #3 with raglan sleeves. not crazy about white leather.
    truth is, i am in despite the colorway.

    What happened to the original jacket pictured with the zippers? The above version sounds like any other varsity jacket, basically the castrated version of the pictured one.

    That sounds kind of cool. What about the cuffs collar and hem ribbing?
    Undyed wool also?

    I was not cut out to be a manager.

    #3 or #3 with a burgundy body instead of grey. I'm in for either one, as long as it's all wool. Not into leather sleeves.

    Right now, all options have leather sleeves, as that was the overwhelming winner in the original poll.

    Huge lurker here, but i would really love to get in on those order, been following the other threads. I have voted for my preference.

    Welcome to the world of posting! I have done it several thousand times.

    I threw in for #2 but could easily go with #3 if that's the direction it goes. I was hoping for a burgundy/burgundy #1 though.

    I analyzed the original poll results before I posted this, scientifically interpreted my vote to count as 2 votes, and chose accordingly. If there's a large shift in public opinion I could be swayed to all-burgundy, myself.

    I haven't voted yet as I want to think about it, but I only want Raglan sleeves, that's a dealbreaker for me.

    Prefer leather, but could be sold on wool depending on how it looks.


    Sounds like you and ddml are on the same team. Again, wool sleeves not really under consideration right now.

    yeah, raglan sleeves are a must. i like #3 with raglan sleeves. not crazy about white leather.

    I'm not a fan of white leather either--I feel that jacket looks really good in the pic but would look less good on me.

    What happened to the original jacket pictured with the zippers? The above version sounds like any other varsity jacket, basically the castrated version of the pictured one.

    Scientific analysis of the poll determined that snap front was the clear leader for closures. I'm sorry if I've castrated anything. FWIW, I like buttons!

    any chance of undyed wool and just regular undyed brown leather?

    I can ask. Wouldn't you kind of look like a sheep?

    +1. I voted for the burgundy one, but double zipper would be so much nicer than snap front. Lack of it might be a dealbreaker.

    Definitely, I'm out as of now if these are the only options. I could maybe go for #3, but I think there are enough of us that prefer the burgundy jacket that we could do our own group buy if it comes down to that.



    P.S is the burgundy jacket even made by this company or is it a picture of a random jacket that should be reproduced?
