    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.

    at the very least yes.

    Here is my thinking, the latch has no purpose and having a cool chrome zip exposed looks cleaner. Latch kinda makes it look old man jacket. just my 2c

    @Thurston Bros is it possible to make the belt + coin pocket an option for those who want it instead of the side adjusters?

    my options on that would be no latch and no collar snaps, shorter body would be cool too

    Thanks for the mockups, very helpful. No latch would be optimal for me too, though a shorter one would be fine.

    Also, aren't we going to be able to specify jacket and sleeve length?

    i agree on collar snaps, didn't even notice them, body length i'd say longer


    per Fok "You can adjust the sleeve length and the length for a given size. "

    Why on earth would you want to get rid of the collar snaps, that's the defining feature of a rider jacket

    by the looks of this I would like to participate in the buy. I would say no bottom flap latch but the snaps are good. Even though the intent is for looks I will still try and ride my moto with it.

    Thanks, I only ask because multiple people have commented on changing the length, which is confusing to me because they will be specified for each jacket. Maybe the comments are about the base model we are developing so that any length adjustments needed won't through off the proportions/design?

    Agree, I like the collar snaps as is.

    The higher handwarmer pockets look better...the band at the bottom of the hem looks good both ways...

    The mock ups used a cyclone as it's base so the proportions are off regards lapel size and the cut of the breast/main zip line. I won't go flooding the thread with the same images just slightly adjusted (and I may also have some work to do[​IMG]) but I'll add these two images: The first as previous but without flap, and the second an edit of the junya/derby to show how it looks with a banded hem and the belt and pocket clean cut out - The pockets are left in the original position.
