    So we are going with a rider not a moto like the junya x vanson?

    Since a lot of us are interested in the color/material options, as well as pricing could @Thurston Bros post the info here?

    The rider posted is a Junya version. There was more support for it, and we need to do one at a time, or we'll never make the numbers.

    It's up to what Style Forum members decide on...if the orders are there, we'll do it!

    Vanson's Comp. Weight Leather is what they're famous for...I've attached a photo of the Vanson Star Jacket below because it shows a number of different leather colors in Comp. Weight leather...

    [​IMG]

    Vanson's Comp. Weight Octagon is very nice too...

    [​IMG]

    and, again, the Comp. Weight Black is what they're famous for....

    There is a lighter weight leather called Firenze, but it won't get the incredible patina that more expensive leathers do...

    There is a veg.-tanned black option too...but we would need to okay that with Vanson. This would be quite expensive ($1000.00 + a jacket) option...

    Pricing on Comp. Weight leather would be between $650 and $800, depending on how detailed the design was...

    hypothetically this design posted in the original post

    [​IMG]

    - non comp black chrome tanned horsehide ( I think someone said 2.5oz?)
    - extra zipper on the same arm parallel to the existing one, or a zipper on the bicep of the same arm

    how would that sound?

    What's the expected weight of the leather? 3 oz.? Closer to 4? 2.5?

    I would move the pocket, but an additional one seems too much.

    They made it in red too iirc for certain retailers. Anyway, I'd be most interested in a lighter black.
