    It will probably be about 3 weeks, but that would be the ideal! We'll have a better idea next week and we'll give a new update at that time...

    The design for the stock Daredevil has already gone through the final prototype phase...any changes to the design would have to done through a custom order!

    How much extra will it cost to customize one of these again?

    What does this waist suppression look like?

    We were busy yesterday and I didn't answer your question correctly! The Junya and the Daredevil have the same amount of waist suppression--they are the same base model. Once the Daredevils come through production, we'll post up the exact measurements for this area of the jacket (in addition to other detailed measurements).

    It will depend on what custom changes are requested...it could be anything from a different liner to changing the sleeve length to changing the taper of the torso! The range is $50-$250 extra, based on the variety of custom options customers have asked us about.

    Wow, just saw this mentioned in the TOJ topic.

    I'll have to read through this topic.

    They are in production right now--I just asked Vanson for an update and I'll post it here as soon as I get it!

    Vanson has confirmed that the Daredevils will be shipping to us next week! As soon as we receive them, we'll be in touch with everyone who pre-ordered. We'll also post up detailed measurements as well as what sizes are still available for immediate purchase...

    Looking forward to it [​IMG]

    New detailed photos would also be appreciated, hopefully one with the Japanese floral lining so we can see how the concept turns out.

    Currently waiting on a TOJ Double Rider, as well as an A2, and a Moto 2011. In the meantime, decided to hit the gym and am getting much bigger. Been a bit disappointed lately as I've had difficulty finding anything that looks as nice as TOJ/Drew's stuff, but I think this jacket will fit the DR whole nicely. The best thing that TOJ had going for it was the fit, so hopefully I can get as good a fit with this. Now to find an A2 as nice. I'm curious to see @LA Guy 's planned moto jacket from Johnson I believe. Hopefully I can still buy both at the end of next year.

    Toj fit is only good as the measurements you provide them. Their manufacturing of jackets is also quite inconsistent. Just look at the gallery closely. Their 2013 dr collar sizes vary from customer to customer. Some customers have massive collars which I think is wrong. the wool ma-1 modelled by Drew has a full placket and then gets changed to start 2 inches lower from top collar. The channel quilt on bcdr from the collar to shoulder should lay horizontal and then run vertical from shoulder down the arm. It now runs vertical everywhere.

    You are basically taking a punt with toj.
    I'm looking forward to the consistency that vanson should bring.

    Also if diniro's fit is any indicator it should be spot on when sized correctly, especially with the half sizes which I wish more brands would offer, at least on an mto basis

    Diniro's fit is for the Junya which IIRC isn't as slim as the SF x Vanson jacket.

    It should be just as slim, just with slightly smaller shoulders I thought?
