    Alright, perhaps this upcoming Saturday we can do a Saturday late-afternoon/evening beer or a Sunday. I'll ask the other guy and see if he is free for a little while. I am in the process of moving houses and stuff so this middle of the month is getting a little busy for me but I'll carve out a couple hours. I live in Shinchon btw, I thought I saw some familiar backgrounds in your WAYWTs, am I wrong? [​IMG]

    haha Sinchon is no problem almost any time (as long as it's night but can't do much drinking on the weekdays) since my gf is a Hongik student and lives in that area, so I can just stay at her place for the night if I have to. I'm up there almost all the time on the weekend.

    Would you be able to do the leather jacket like the Lithium Homme item in the link below. This is the style I like, less zips and the zips are done in a recessed position making it look more elegant. Let me know;

    Yes, I can. I don't have those zippers obviously, I have the bar-pull YKK's, but I can recess the zippers, give it the accordian sleeve backs and 2 piece back instead of the 4 piece anatomic as on the sample. Without the right-side breast pocket and the mods above, my jacket would look pretty damn near the same as the Lithium, it was one of the jackets I have been familiar with in the past.

    I'm no leather connoisseur by any means, but I really want to touch that leather just looking at it.

    also, I've had a couple inquiries; if you're going with black leather, and add the $20 to opt for the upgraded YKK option set on my moto or perfecto (A2 comes standard with th upgraded YKK as it only needs one zip, as opposed to the 7 that go into the Moto)... I have a matching 2-way zipper for the main zip, no cost beyond the $20 for the whole zipper set (they're slightly darker in the tooth color so they need to be matched as a complete set, and the whole set of zippers for the moto actually cost me about $50, but I'll split the difference since I like the upgrade zippers). A couple people asked about that and I just found it on Friday, so I'm putting it out there. I figure I will make it my standard front zipper now.

    Still offering the standard YKK's on the $475 moto for people who can't squeeze out the extra $20 for the upgrade hardware, but the upgrade set is definitely worth it. Only on the black for now.

    I'm no leather connoisseur by any means, but I really want to touch that leather just looking at it.

    This is literally my exact criterion for choosing materials; I know some stuff is more delicate because of it, but I put the 'touch' factor at the top of my list when it comes to fabrics and leathers. I've always felt that tactile quality is a huge factor for me when it comes to how often I wear the clothes and ultimately like it and I think this is something that separates the good from the bad, after all, there is a certain price difference involved when you choose to go to materials like this. I could make a leather jacket for $300 and it'd be 60% of the jacket I'm offering; but I don't want to cut corners when I know I can make what I'm making for this price. It's worth every penny and I think once people start getting their jackets in the mail and start wearing them, they'll see what I mean.

    I made promises like this with the varsity jackets I made this summer and the TOJ1 reversible jackets, and I think from the feedback I've gotten, my promises were not empty and people were able to agree with me.

    yes, go with measurements from that. Give me pretty detailed measurements, like sleeve circumference in at least 2-3 places, and torso circumference or at least across on one side, in a couple places other than the p2p and s2s, and i can dial the pattern in that much better if you're sure of what you want the jacket to fit like.

    ok, I've been thinking all night, before going to pick up other color samples and doing the needle in the haystack search for matching zippers;

    As black is my strongest color combo for leather+zippers in the Moto and perfecto, both lamb and calf applying here, and black and brown for the A2, I will offer only those colors for the introductory $475 jackets here for the first week or so. I have been trying to get Riris but those arent looking to happen and I may be knocking on Lampo's door to make things happen with other colors, to get those into production. Sorry for pruning back choices but I want everything to be legit and match perfectly, and function peerfectly.

    yes, I can do that. I can also transpose the Moto's zipper pocket configuration (all or some) to the A2 in lieu of the patch pockets to make something new within the framework of the A2 pattern. It'd end up looking very contemporary. I can also do custom pocket configurations if you know what you want.

    how about those fit pics?
    And if somebody ends up buying one with the zippers recessed I'd really like to see pics of that.

    That sounds good, I ama ctually looking for a similar jacket Daniel Craig wore in Casino Royale, it looks similar to the TOJ bomber jacket but with chest pockets and ribbed collar but the sleeves and bottoms aren't ribbed. I prefer the ribbed part of the TOJ bomber to be incorporated to it though. It's hard to explain but pretty much the TOJ bomber jacket with ribbed collar and pockets like this:
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    It seems like a lot to ask and the collar is different from the TOJ varsity, it is more like a ribbed funnel collar but that would practically be the perfect brown leather jacket for me.
