    I will see if I can come up with the cash. If I can I came up with what I will probably want:
    BODY COLOR:LT OXFORD
    SLEEVE COLOR:WHITE
    POCKET TRIM COLOR:Navy
    SNAP COLOR (snaps generally match body color):White
    KNIT COLOR (collar, cuffs, hem):Navy
    STRIPES ON KNIT TRIM? Yes
    STRIPE STYLE (Single, Double, Triple; feathered or not)Single
    STRIPE COLOR(S):White


    Sound good?

    Long is an option for all sizes--according to CKM, it adds 1.5 inches to sleeves--body can be longer too, by request. As for measurements, I don't have em offhand, but there's a 34 listed on this page--can anyone translate?




    if you go by the info on this link, a 34 would be:

    body width: 52 cm
    sleeve length:\t86 cm
    body length: 62 cm

    some questions:
    1) are there options for lining color?
    2) for the feathered stripes, do we get to pick all 3 colors? or does the "border" color come in black by default?

    anyone know of any labels that use their sweaters? I'm assuming you can't buy directly from them.

    If this goes smoothly I'd be happy to do a cardi run. (Or if someone else wants to, go ahead! I dunno what the minimum is on those.)

    It's my impression that the pricier japanese jackets source their own fabric--I've followed up on a couple of special requests and been told they don't stock melton colors other than the ones I posted. That jacket seems to be hunter melton w/ brown leather, and hunter is not on the swatch sheet. I think forest might be close, but probably too green to really replicate that jacket.

    Sorry the swatch sheet photos are mediocre, I got my camera back today and I may be able to take a natural light pic or two soon.

    I actually want a really loud one. Like bright pink and white.

    EDIT: So which model of jacket is this? Is there a picture of the barebones one we'll be customizing?

    This would be great. Kind of hard to see what the darker colors really look like

    This jacket is pretty close--except we'll have snaps rather than buttons. You can choose, as isn the order form, body color, sleeve color, trim color, pocket trim color, snap color, and stripes/no stripes on the collar/cuffs/hem. FWIW there's no pink.

    Thanks to Nathan at Farinelli's for taking these pics of the swatches. The darker colors are still hard to see, I'll see if I can get higher res shots up maybe this weekend.

    When do you think the first customers will start receiving their jackets?

    Assuming we get the order in in early August,

    I believe it was mentioned sometime towards the end of September.

    They should be in in September. Note that the deal is not that we're passing orders through one by one--we're getting an order together and making it--one time.

    Good to see you on board [​IMG] They don't give pantone equivalents but I can try and match them on my pantone guide. Maybe this weekend.
