Hi Kall Lyrion Good to finally have a direct line of communication with you. Not sure if you decided to join because I alerted SeAnn to the discussion of your coat on this forum but regardless, it is good to have you. You will see how passionate people get about the coat and that's a good thing. I'm also glad to hear that you're willing to listen and adapt/evolve your coat. It cost me and others a lot of money to do the changes that Mechanismo described above and there is no other person on this forum and honestly, likely on earth at this point, who knows the coat, both the original as well as every major commercial replica, as he does. If it werent for him, my coat would not nearly look as good as it now does. What is disappointing is that I should not have to make all these changes. As Mechanismo pointed out, even with all the alternations, there are still some issues we just cannot fix once the coat is made currently because for example the measurements are off. Just as my friend jholko mentioned, I too would buy another coat from you if all these changes were incorporated. Just imagine how beautiful the coat would look. You have by far the best material of all your competitors and SeAnn is a sweetheart to work with. In addition to what my good friend Mechanismo stated above, I would just again emphasize that the most glaring issue with the coat is the shearling. Which is ironic because you actually use REAL shearling and it was heartbbreaking having to take it out and throw it away. But seriously, despite the high quality, can you not see how it looks like 1980s apartment carpet/rug? Dont mean to be insulting at all but that's honestly the impression everyone has who has seen it..from my tailor to my friends to most people here on this forum. Could you not find real shearling with the right color (Mechanismo has that nailed down as well) and the right texture/drape? It isn't easy I give you that, but you have resources we don't. The best we could do to get the color and the drap, but not the quality and texture, was to deconstruct a coat from Uniqlo. Again, if you made these changes and changed the shearling, not only would I and jholko buy another coat, I can assure you that your sales would increase exponentially. Word of mouth for us fanboys and girls is so powerful and I for one have been one of the few defenders of your brand on this forum all along...you can just read the comments if you want to know. I never asked you or SeAnn for any favors or discounts etc but I will ask for something now - please consider these requests. I am a two-time customer of yours already. Your coat is great. But you can make it so much better still. Just take a look at my photos above and also posted in Mechanismo 's post above.Thank you Mechanismo for the welcome and the notes/illustrations, very helpful for the collar placement alteration.
Yes, I would be grateful if you would send across important information and observations from the previous posts if you have it, thank you. I will start with the collar & lapels, the magnets used for closure on the body of the coat and shearling/fake fur (this last one is dependant on quality/durability).
