    vanson is about a 2-3 hour drive for me, I wonder if it'd be worth the effort to check them out

    The Junya look really tight fit in motion. I think it should also be noted that the fit photos are with the zip partially zipped as far as I can tell.

    I'd hope it's full rider jacket with coin pocket and belt or without either like Seenmys. Chrome hardware sounds nice.

    Here are my thoughts (which aren't far off from Fuuma's).


    1) no belt, no belt loops, and no coin pocket on lower abdomen - No belt, would like to do single or double side adjusters. No coin pocket on lower abdomen.

    2) angled left forearm coin pocket, angled on forearm like it is on the VAJ-3 bicep - I'd prefer a coin pocket at the bicep if we're even considering pockets along the sleeves. Not really into a forearm pocket.

    3) 5-5.5 inch chest pocket with 7 inch handwarmer pockets; chest pocket angled like on Aero 1930s Half Belt - Ok

    4) no dropped back, back cut straight across - I'm not sure I understand yet what a "dropped back" is. Is that like a "scalloped" hem?

    5) leather toggles (like on VAJ-3) on all exterior pocket ring pulls - I'm with Fuuma: big fat zipper pulls please. No leather.

    6) no interior pockets - One interior pocket inside the left breast.

    7) black rayon liner - Ok

    8) Z150 leather - Ok

    9) nickel hardware - Silver or gunmetal would be best in my opinion.

    10) please construct jacket with throat latch - nooooooooooo

    11) please construct jacket snap-on / snap-off black mouton fur collar - nah

    12) double-ended main zipper - yah

    13) standard Vanson label - SFxVanson seems to be the most reasonable, but I also like the idea of something stupid and kitschy like "Style Van der Forum," "Not a Watanabe," or "Lil Fokker" being written on the label.

    14) Ultra slimfit Japanese Fit with model C "action" back - I'm not sure what the "action" back is, but in terms of fit I think that this would work pretty well. @LA Guy do you think you'd have the opportunity to try on this model to see how it fits? I'm a muscly guy, but I still want something with a slim silhouette like

    and not like

    15) size Large for prototype - sure

    Thewho13, action back means shoulder gussets.

    @Brian SD mocked this up for us. The proposed jacket will be on the ultra slim body. Cheers,

    Fok.

    Nice. Very similar to the ToJ minimalist DR, right?

    Is that a clasp on the bottom? I like that if so, it's a good compromise

    Very nice. Yeah, I agree with @Thurston Bros that the handwarmer pockets need to be just a touch higher, or else they are neither as functional nor as balanced, but yeah, very nice photoshopping.

    1st Same as before with slighter higher handwarmer pockets.
    2nd Higher again handwarmers & chest pocket adjusted to be closer to the Derby/Junya version. Banded hem cleaned up to be a solid panel.

    Pocket lengths/angles a bit off, but hope it provides a crude impression.
    Edit: I just took the handwarmers straight from the runway picture above so they sit a bit strange on the mock ups.
