    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Charly special July 2013.


    I would have thought so, but the post at that time made it seem like the batches that were going out would be significantly bigger in size. Even if I ignored that, it didn't seem to line up in my head. but, whatever.

    it's lamb or in any case some leather than looks pretty lightweight and soft; you look like a skinny guy; the jacket fits fairly loosely for a rider; and that is fairly heavy hardware - and a lot of it. It fits pretty well, but you are naturally going to get some draping around the hardware.

    Unless you are going for a slightly oversized look that jacket is too big IMO. If the pics are accurate, the jacket is slouching off your shoulders a bit and it's roomy in the chest/waist. For that style I would think you'd want it more fitted and then it would stretch a bit eventually...

    Thanks for the feedback, it's goat with excellas.
    Went with the recommended measurements, said I wanted the jacket fitted but not tight. I think it fits well overall other than the 2 issues seen in the pics. Maybe the jacket needs to be broken in more.

    It's actually easier to navigate now. Thanks for your work in getting it back up.

    i think it looks good. any slimming down would only cause more bunching.

    My jacket drapes like that sometimes, particularly between the shoulder and the lapels. I personally find it accentuates the "fabric-like" draping qualities of the leather, so I enjoy it.

    Goat is great. But it is a very pliable leather, unlike say, horse, which has a very tight grain. With a fair bit of heavy hardware (those look like size 8+ zippers), you are invariably going to get that conforming to the shape of the zippers. It doesn't look bad. It just looks the way any fairly pliable leather will look.

    I wouldn't stress it. Goat is tough and soft, with a great grain (looking more closely at your jacket), I can see that now). Enjoy. You waited long enough.

    Very middle midsection looks too big. That's why its folding.

    Too tight would suggest pulling. That's obviously not the case there.

    I think the 4-zip DR design combined with a more pliable leather is a contributing factor w / r / t the midsection. The horizontal zippers and the folded-over leather surrounding them are creating a stiffer line and the more pliable goat is shaping around them. This would probably be less pronounced with a stiffer calf or horse leather. It doesn't actually look bad at all, though, and obviously it doesn't do that at all when worn unzipped.

    Looks bad to me. I'd suggest selling

    And no, I'm not saying that because I want it. I just think it's a poor fit.

    At least he has room to grow or bulk into it. Better being a lil bigger than smaller.

    we've seen what happens when you slim down the midsection. it's not good. do not make an hourglass shaped jacket.

    3. Midsection: 29"
    4. Waist: 33"
    5. Front Length: 21"
    6. Sleeve Length: 24"

    And these were the recommeded jacket measurements:
    shoulders 17.5"
    chest (pit-to-pit) 20.8"
    midsection 18.7"
    waist 19.2"
