    OK folks, this discussion began in the Premium Members section and we're now ready to openly post what we've been up to.

    The RPF - :love'Officially Licensed':love - Members Only Leather Jacket is now ready....well almost.:cool

    The only thing missing is The RPF embossed rubber patch for the right shoulder/sleeve...and custom interior lining.
    The rubber patch is 1.5 X 1.5 inches. It's small, discrete...but will represent!
    The interior lining will be branded with The RPF logo artwork but we need a little more time to get the custom details ready.

    Those are in the works now...not photographed yet, sorry...but trust me, I'm good for them! :lol

    Not an easy jacket, but easily one of my new favorites now!

    LOOKS GREAT! I'm in for two....but, I really wish (hint hint) there was an option for a RPF shoulder logo that was a bit bigger, like 4"x4". Maybe stick two of those tiny ones on the collar? Or could I "special order" one like that?

    Having seen David's work first hand, I know this is quality stuff.

    It will be interesting to see the final product.

    I think smaller is better with the logo. Discreet and classy. ;) I would have even preferred it down at the waist next to the zipper start.

    Once I have the patch in hand we can vote on positioning. The size remains 1.5 X 1.5 inches, but the exact placement and location can still be decided upon....no problem there guys.:thumbsup

    It's an RPF jacket...and as such it has to work and appeal to all the fine members of this most awesome of message boards.:)

    Wow. That's definitely a hero jacket, but maintains the class. I like it David. :)

    I say sell the patches separately so the member/client can chose later once the jacket arrives and they can put it where they want. My opinion, as there really shouldn't be a finite spot to put it.

    This, is a beautiful thing. I'd love to see the lining, and if I may be so bold to suggest, that the lining be the classic "Tinkerer" retro/art deco design, displayed prominantly in the center of the lining. I had a bomber jacket where the entire inside of the lining on the back was Old Glory herself. Pretty neat.

    Just a suggestion, and I'm also a bit curious to the price, because I love the look of this jacket, and want one :D

    An all-leather jacket of this caliber deserves an embossed leather patch - not rubber.

    Very cool. It seems to have a tighter motorcycle jacket like cut. I like it. I looks like something Wolverine would wear. I agree that a leather patch or embossed logo in the leather might look better than a rubber patch. I would have to see the rubber patch before coming to a definitive conclusion. Nice work.

    Oh man, me too. I was originally envisioning a Grey 1980's JCPenny Members Only jacket with shoulder straps and elastic cuffs. How funny.

    I thought I was going to see a 80's Members Only jacket made of cloth...and was thinking "What???, Why???" and then I saw the jacket and still thought "What???" So it is just a leather jacket with a tiny logo that is on a rubber patch? I couldn't see it in the photo.

    As an avid biker, Im not into logos. But you did an amazing job on this jacket. The quilted leather detailing on the back is superb.

    Just an idea

    Any chance on contrasting stitching? Like maybe something along the lines of the blue colors used here on the forums? Just a bit lighter than royal blue would be my suggestion.

    I had to put on hold temporarily...assembly of current prototypes needed to be put into production so that caused a bit of delay here but I'm already back on it...hoping for March to debut the finished jacket, with patch...in Buffalo hide.
    We're also finalizing the introduction of our newest Studio License...and depending on a bazillion unknown factors at this time...it too may get priority with our prototyping. While unlikely, if this does happen I'll keep you all in the loop.
    The finished jacket IS visible at the beginning of the thread, but it's Cow Hide..no RPF logo patch...and no final price yet but still uber sexy!:love
    Updates soon!

    Man that is awesome. I'd be in for one, potentially! I do love a good leather jacket, and this one's simple enough that I'd probably rock it year-round! Nice job!

    Ok, so where were we? :darnkids

    The RPF rubber patch is finally done...and it's awesome!!!!

    The Rubber Shoulder Patch is 2 inches X 2 inches.

    ...it is pretty small and not at all 'in your face!':lol

    [​IMG]

    The details are all raised...so the boarder and lettering is all raised. The line in the boarder is for running the thread through it to stitch it to the sleeve.

    So...Ya dig?

    Pics of finished jackets with the patch in place coming shortly...and I mean it this time.:cool

    Sorry for the delay, with the introduction of GI JOE and TDKR just around the corner we had to bump a few projects...:cry
    But we're back on it, uh-gain.:thumbsup

    Cool...and I do have an update here!!!

    Art Andrews and Star Wars Chick will both have theirs at SDCC next week. I'm personally delivering their jackets to them. :cool
    This means that many attending CCon will see both the Male and Female versions in person, as well as expect Art to take the most awesome pics of these jackets...better than I could that's for sure. :lol

    Anyhow, this is moving forward and we'll probably start the official J/Y thread right after CCon.

    I'd give them some time. I know they are setting up the photo shoot and comic con will take it outta you for sure. I didn't have to work and I was beat when I got home.

    They are pretty cool I will say.

    I'll be looking to release this with optional Classic or New RPF logos very soon. I've had this ready to go for weeks now but...I think I see light at the end of the tunnel on this one. :)

    For what it’s worth; I’m not a fan of the logo on the arm, I thought the subtle embossing Art suggested in the other thread was a much better idea. I do like the overall design though and I like the idea of an RPF lining.
