    It seems like the general consensus is sleeves should not be darker than body. Anyone have pics to the contrary?

    Varsity jackets aren't really my thing but these look nice - awesome effort.

    I'll look for a pic, but you seem to be right--I feel like i've seen lighter jackets with black sleeves, although it wouldn't be what I'd go for.

    Not quite--I'll see if there's one in their catalog. The two from rakuten are very close. The navy with green striped trim could be done, but with snap buttons. The navy with cream sleeves is close, but we will not have the pocket reinforcements or chest zip pocket.

    I'll probably go with the same setup as you with dk cardinal / dk grey (assuming I can find 175), I just like the idea of navy leather sleeves. But I am not sure what to put them with.

    I had thought Fuuma was Belgian or some other European nationality.

    I honestly wouldn't mind doing the color scheme of the W+H varsity. Light or Dark oxford body and black leather sleeves.

    I'd like to order one and I'd like to have the main body color be one of the purples, but I can't figure out if I want to have NW purple or purple

    NW purple is a lighter shade, pretty feminine imo

    Thanks for the info, that helps me out a lot, from the pic in the first thread I thought NW Purple might be a darker shade and I wanted to go with whichever is dark shade.

    NW purple is the colors of North West U. It's more of a royal than a deep purple. Their website is a good representation of the color http://www.northwestern.edu/

    I'd like to see a better pic of the other purple available, if it's dark enough I can make the varsity I've wanted for a while.

    I really like the color of the light oxford so I will probably do a light oxford body with navy leather sleeves.

    ^Was thinking dk oxford / navy myself but I'm not convinced it would end up working. Either that, or brown body, navy sleeves, navy trim.

    The dk cardinal / dk grey combo seems to me like a pretty surefire winner though.
