    Shoulder will be well under 18.5 inches... Remember, this is the fit that everyone wanted...

    We're pretty sure this is the inspiration for the Cafe' Racer, but we need to tweak it to StyleForum requirements...

    I would imagine we'd choose something with more universal appeal, such as a black rayon liner...

    What size would be needed for 19.5" shoulders and 23.5" chest?

    These are the exact measurements of a standard Vanson in size 42. Do people want this jacket in standard fit as well?

    Ok, do you need a minimum number of orders for the rider/some advance payment after prototyping? Maybe the forum has to start evangelizing...

    I actually suggested this option to several folks in the leather jacket thread

    Sure, wouldn't hurt to have that option too. Honestly, that fit pic of the junya moto is pretty damned tight. Like I can see his ab definition through his jacket tight.

    That's unfortunate, since I have abs of bacon...

    Yeah I don't mean to step on anyone's toes because if making it available in standard sizing doesn't affect anything else this is all and well, but doesn't most of the default sizing for both vanson/schott cater to bigger dudes? I thought the point of the junya jacket being inspiration aside from being impeccably designed (since the a lot of the details have been changed - belt/coin pocket removed, forearm pocket moved to bicep) was that it was extra slim (since vanson already offers slim/standard sizing) - it's not going to fit every body type.

    The camo lining isn't particularly wild. I would prefer a distinctive pattern of some sort for this collaboration.

    I thought Carrie was suggesting both slim and standard in this new design. Everyone's happy that way, no?
