    Are you able to make something that looks extremly similar and has very nice leather (slightly darker brown)? Also what would it cost to make a jacket like that (my maximum is about $1200)? Thanks in advance
    It's just a bomber with modified details. It'd be $550 in suede. Just tell them to cut it slim, give them your pocket designs and colour preference and away you go. templeofjawnz@gmail.com

    I have to say that the jacket looks damn nice in blue but it would be a wee bit too unusual for me [​IMG]. Edit: BTW can I expect that the quallity is equal to the Brunello jacket or is there a huge difference? I can´t imagin that a jacket that costs $550 has the same quallity as a jacket that is around $4000 or is it really just the branding?

    Like the original color much more than the blue one.

    I might be interested if TOJ confirm that it can be done.

    Looking over that suede a-1 again, looks so good that I'm almost tempted to make a red one once I get my other jacket. I hate seeing nice looking things [​IMG]

    It's supposed to be [​IMG]
    The ToJ bomber jackets are individually hand made, are they not? Mine is currently being made, but I imagine the quality would be excellent.

    I'm quite certain it can be done.. but I'll have to verify it with Drew and our maker first.

    The ToJ bomber jackets are individually hand made, are they not?

    indeed, they are.

    ^^ [​IMG] I was hoping TOJ would decline to do that. Now I will have to get 2 more jackets made, one this BC bomber and the other a Betstaff / Brbour style motorcycle jacket

    I ordered 2 (only 4 were ordered I think). I told them not to send it yet so I could buy a bag or tee's or whatever but new stuff hasn't come out yet so I won't have pics for a while

    Dude you can't expect a 550 dollar leather to be on par with a 4000 dollar jacket. That's nonsense. It's like expecting a TaT suit to be on par with a MTM St. Andrews or something. What you can expect is that it will be substantially better quality than other leather jackets you'd pay 550 for.

    Hasn't Drew addressed this "leather quality" issue before? I remember him mentioning ToJ leathers compare really well to $2000 leathers from MMM, Julius, RO etc.

    I'll just say on my jacket that I currently have, I'm not sure how much better it'd be if you spent $4k vs $450 (jackets used to be cheaper for early guys). I mean a couple stitches have broke and one single stitch on the jacket was uneven but I'm not going to pay an extra $3500 for that.

    Also from my memory in handling his stuff, leather quality is definitely on par with those brands and better than some as well. Quality is better in some cases. There's a reason I gave pretty much no info on my next purchase and just said to make it good other than some basic guidelines. I've got pretty high trust in them making a quality jacket and telling me if something I ask for is retarded.

    if you can't tell the difference does it really matter that much?

    Maybe he can tell the difference between prod. a and prod. b, it's just that he hasn't seen/touched/held prod. b..

    He's getting product b at 1/8th the price of product a. Do those details really matter?

    Hi, found this amazing Brunello Cucinelli jacket:
    Are you able to make something that looks extremly similar and has very nice leather (slightly darker brown)?
    Also what would it cost to make a jacket like that (my maximum is about $1200)?

    Thanks in advance


    If 1200 USD is your budget and Cucinelli is your grail then buy this http://store.ehaberdasher.com/Detail.bok?no=4401.

    FWIW, I recently bought a Cucinelli suede jacket and sold it on as it didnt fit me as I wanted. You can find some pics in the best leather jacket thread. The design is very nice, suede is butter and cashmere ribbing feels very luxe. But the stitching, construction and all is very ordinary. I expected far better from a jacket that is supposed to retail at 4000 USD.

    Pics of the Cucinelli jacket I am talking of
