    I'm looking forward to that suede baseball jacket; either that or the new collared moto will be my next purchase (fit pics drew [​IMG]?)

    i wonder what % of people who are refreshing this thread for new pics actually buy anything. 1%?

    1% of almost 200K views is a lot of leather jackets...

    Post #1649 was where I unveiled the 2011 DR, we're above post #2000 now; so far we have sold two. [​IMG]
    I'll be #3 as soon as I can rule out (or go for) that new band-collar DR. Soon? I'm considering the dark grey in place of black.

    dude, that's navy? looks so black

    Yeah it's dark which is what I wanted. Pics are fairly accurate. I think the current blue may be lighter but don't quote me on that.

    this.... is going on the new band-collar DR [​IMG] It wasn't assembled fully but I saw it about 50% done, all the parts sewn up waiting to be put together. It is going to be the shit. I want somebody who has been with me since the TOJ0 days in the summer of 2009 to get one of these new DR's with the shoulder quilting or the new band-collar DR. If the TOJ0 was like my kindergarten stage, then this week's jackets are like my PhD. THe quilted channel stitching on the top look straight but are actually all very subtly curved lines - the sleeve head cups ever so slightly that way and 3D's over your arm and shoulder. You can see also how the curvature of the arm works as well, the elbow is also 3D. [​IMG] you can see that the stitching curves slightly here: [​IMG]

    this thread kind of sucks because instead of people posting pics of their clothing you have people like uncontrol going OMG YOU SHOULD MIGHT ITEM XYZ LOL ID BUY IT IN A SECOND even though the item is ridiculous, impractical and will probably never be purchased

    if i learned one thing working for mauro it's that hype almost never translates into actual purchases, and that 90% of your business comes from people who never post / don't give a shit about keeping up with the latest omg cool releases.

    in short, people post more pictures of your toj

    The Farinelli's thread was much, much worse.

    that being said, here's what i have for you to peruse. i took some artistic liberties, as just using the swatch would have resulted in boring, ugly, unrepresentative pictures.

    All of these are pretty much spot-on, except the blue is like a dark royal blue (not as dark as navy) and the green doesn't have that much brown in it - it's purer green, and a shade darker as well.

    The medium grey looks like you have there, and then the dark grey is a shade darker.

    fwiw though, those look exactly like they would if I were to make real samples of those colors and bring them home and photograph them the same way I always do. That is astounding dude.

    what do you mean? I don't know how much more detailed I can get since those are the actual scans of the fabrics lol

    Basic color names, basically. Like, 7 looks like black, but 16 also kind of does, although it looks more like a navy, and it's a little weird trying to tell some of them apart.

    I'm revising the shirt swatches; some of the fabrics are not available and there were more swatches to be scanned, so Charly sent that over and I'm editing now.

    I hope that thread never gets deleted, because it really is the perfect example of how conditioning your potential customer base to expect discounts and deep end-of-the-season sales can play a role in your business's demise.

    To not get this thread too off-topic, DREW, the leopard print...quit teasing and let us know what it's for.
