    As many of you know, we've been working on this jacket for a long time. We had our first pattern maker do the design work and based on this we made our first canvas prototype:

    There were so many little things wrong with the prototype, which was to be expected, that I laid it all out so our pattern maker could tweak the design for the next mock-up. He took FOREVER to get to this, that I scrapped the project and started over with some new workers we recently hired on.

    They produced a completely new pattern from scratch and a different cotton prototype with a few extra details:

    I counted eight or nine changes that needed to made, so those are currently in the works. In the meantime we also sourced a beautiful leather for the first leather prototype:

    We're testing out the printing on canvas right now and are awaiting the custom screen-accurate zippers to arrive (should be here before the end of the month). Once they arrive, we'll be making our first jacket in the correct colors and materials.

    I want to thank all those who have pre-ordered this sight-unseen and will continue to post updates of this work in progress.

    King regards,
    Magnoli

    Initial estimates were $795 (shipped). This may be revised in the near future as we confirm all the processes used for the production of this jacket.

    Getting much closer...

    The printed pattern needs to be smaller and the gradient is too exaggerated, but I like where this is headed...

    The details look excellent, but I'm going to be that guy and say that I'm not sure I like the look of the gradient on the jacket. The last photo you posted looks great, but some of the others on the site look too vibrant of a shift.

    I would have to agree the gradient in some if the other pictures looks too vibrant but the last photo looks great. Not sure if it just the lighting.

    The jacket being worn and the one on the mannequin are the same, so lighting does play a part. That being said, we'll be toning down the front and making a few last-minute tweaks to our final prototype for the main production run. Stay tuned...

    Jacket is looking great so far!

    If you are still making some tweaks, I have a few suggestions:

    Here are a couple studies I put together. I know they are small nit-picky things, so please don't take my criticisms the wrong way. This is the closest jacket out there, but I'd just love to see you be able to get it a little bit closer to screen. I think most of these might be easy fixes.

    I don't know if it's just the way your jacket is resting, but it looks like a "v" shape has been sewn along this shoulder seam.
    This should be a relatively straight stitch across.

    [​IMG]

    Here are a couple quick sketches I drew on my phone of the stripe placement (you'll notice there are some on the shoulder and near the waist on the back as well):

    Hope these help!

    Thanks! Most of these points have already been noted, but the images you've provided will help finalize this pattern.

    SoulInertia's pictures point out some great points I missed in the emails I sent you.

    Also, it looks like the bias cut collar was cut in different directions on different jackets. The one that was on display at the Galleria had it cut the other way.

    Hi there! Great jacket! did you get the Zipper from KCC? if so, can you let me know what color tape you opted for? (do you have the code number?) (not that it matters, the jacket leather is supposed to be sewn in such a fashion as to completely obscure the tape, anyway, heh! Cheers!

    I had our fabric supplier deal with KCC directly, so not sure what color they opted for.

    Hi there! I have one of the jackets which, (from what I gathered from a conversation we had a long while back - you based your jacket on), and amid the myriad of construction issues and lack of proper-fit, shortcuts taken, (the list goes on), there was the fact that the back panel was too-narrow. I recall having a conversation with you about this panel; the result of which was that I should send you my concerns and you'd address them. Please forgive me for the late reply on this, I was completing my full build so that I could visit a child in the hospital, (took forever, but it's finally finished)

    In any case, my plan was to finish detailing my jacket, myself, by installing my custom cut rigid panels made from cutting mat material, performing the embossing/wet-work with the leather sleeves, (which are far too red), zipper installation, patch substrate & valve installation and bleach wipe* to the back. My thought was to do all this and then sell it so I can get into one of yours, instead, knowing that this one would fit me and look far better, (proper dye, etc...)

    During the whole 'process' my making sure my custom-order of my jacket, I sent as many reference images as I could to ensure that it would be as screen accurate as possible.

    Here are some images I sent with notes - I hope these help you with any end-stage issues you may be encountering.

    If need be, please let me know if you would like to physically see my jacket for reference - I'd be more than happy to pack it up and send it out to you, (if for no other reason than to see what I had to work with to get it to a sell-able state). If you need to cut a seam or two to look at my work from the inside out, feel free...I trust you and know it'll come back in one piece. :)

    At your disposal,

    -Lewis
