    Well, it's 2015, and we need some futuristic jackets by now! I started to work with my leather maker and I'm pleased to show you this: the brand new, 100% leather Marty McFly 2015 jacket. Incredibly comfortable, we used texturized red leather in a 100% functional, very durable jacket, so you can use it in both cons and in your daily wardrobe. Take a look at the pics!

    Bit of a dumb question but does the 100% leather and extra comfy factor reduce the screen accuracy at all? It looks pretty accurate to me but im no bttf expert so i was just curious

    It looks great but is inaccurate to the movie since it fits like a normal leather motorcycle jacket.

    Yes, I'll be collecting paymentsthroughout the week.

    Post updated!

    No dumb questions here! The screen used jacket wasn't made out of leather, according to my research there was a lot of latex, synthetic fabrics and plastic on the jacket. While it looked great on set it's not something you want to be using for long periods of time. This is a redesign based on the original, keeping the shapes, look and feel while also being something you can wear as often as you want.

    Yes it will be, why do you ask?

    Nevermind, I see the other measurements were added ahah.
    I'd be a Small.. just sleeves would be 3 inches long, I'm thinking.

    More than very interested, i'll take you one.
    I have a few questions :

    1) Is it possible to make the inside layer like the original jacket, i think it's called "meteor"

    Capture.JPG

    2) Will the texture on the leather strong enough to be used everyday ?
    I will drive with it and i'm kinda scared that the texture fades quickly.

    3) Could you make pictures of the interior of the jacket do see how the jacket is done in detail ?

    4) Will the sleeves be stretchable like this picture ?

    2015_marty_c-3.jpg

    I will drive with it and i'm kinda scared that the texture fades quickly.

    5) The answer will be probably be no, but it was to know if the jacket could have the Nike label like this one, without the "footwear"

    Nike_Footwear.png

    6) The red part of the jacket seems much more shiny than the grey one, is it possible to have it into a more matte leather, or it has to stay shiny due to the texturing ?

    You can already add me sir and thanks for your answers. :thumbsup

    His runs go on for a while, and sometimes garner enough interest for multiple runs. Planning to get this as a gift, so put me down as interested.

    This is why I love questions, I get to share more about the project!

    1) I won't be using that lining, we looked into it but the price would go sky high.

    2) Will never fade away since it's perforated.

    3) I'll take a few pics of the interior in a bit, I think you'll like how it looks.

    4) Yes they will! I have pics of that:
    IMG-20150803-WA0006.jpg IMG-20150803-WA0005.jpg

    5) I won't be able to use the Nike logo due to copyright issues.

    6)It is a bit more shinny, but it looks much more shinny because of the pics, in the pics above you can tell how shinny it actually is.

    Hope to add you very soon!

    Sent you guys a pm with payment info!

    I just added some info on how to know your size, if you're in between sizes I always suggest to go with the larger one.

    It's more the darker color in the professional pics.

    So I've measured a few of my jackets at home. 2 of them say that I'm at 20.5 inches across the back, 1 said I'm at 19 inches across the back.

    That would mean that I'm either an XL, or a medium lol.

    I typically wear a US size large for jackets. Sometimes I fit into mediums.

    Can anyone suggest what I should get based on their experience? I have a 41 inch chest if that helps.

    Thank you so much!

    Did you consider using embossed leather to better recreate the raised bump texture of the original, as opposed to using the perforated leather? If so, how much would that have added to the cost? I love the slightly more modern fit the jacket has vs. the screen-used, but I would really prefer a more accurate texture. Thanks!

    I agree with Spyhunter!
    Is there a way it could use a similar material Markpoon used on his version?
    Or at least treat the leather the same way. I think Markpoon's red material was rubber.

    What size are you?

    Of course!

    Received and added you to the run!

    I sent you a pm, hopefully I'll be able to help you.

    Payment received!

    Received!

    I did actually, but the embossing was very expensive and it wore off easily, so we went for a more durable, comfortable material instead.

    Pm sent!
