Franken-Jacket? Secret Project?
That’s a whole lotta pockets goin’ on there.
Pakistan actually produces a lot of denim, cotton fabrics are one of their main industries.
I read a lot of Levi's are made in Pakistan.
My brother in law works as salesman for a manufacturer of textile looms and he says the biggest markets for them are Turkey, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Turkey apparently is where the upper grade mall stuff is made whereas the other two countries they mass produce a fair share of the global clothing supply.
Pakistan and Bangladesh have been long-term suppliers of the fashion business here in the UK, in part I think the relationship began to come about in the Sixties and into the seventies with more immigration into the UK from that pat of the world, bringing with it people who would set up family businesses using their connections back home to manufacture, then sell in the UK marked up appropriately for the market. The internet has, of course, allowed direct sales without going via a Western-based distributor. Economics of manufacturing business can be mindblowing sometimes: police uniform caps for Northern Ireland are now made in separate factories for the peak and the hat. These are manufactured in Eastern Europe, sent to the UK, them returned to another place in EE, I'm told, to stitch them together, because somehow it all works out cheaper than manufacturing in the UK. I cringe at the airmiles, mind, but that's business. Course, if the markets change and currency values are upended long term, who knows what will then become the 'norm'!
oh boy, if they start manufacturing all kinds of different jackets that we can design at a $150-250 price point, it's going to be fun around here.
Just got my DHL notice. Eta of Friday, so based on what some of you telling me, could be here as soon as Monday. Excited. Really want to see the jacket, but also want to get a sense of the leather and the measurements I gave him. I've got a thorough walk through of a J100 I want him to do next already laid out, and will make adjustments once I have the other jacket and various leather samples he's sending me.
Add $50 to that total unless you get small sized stock jackets.
yeah, the one I got coming was $330. But there was $30 to fix the collar and another $30 because I wanted him to take out the arm pit gussets. So thinking $250-270ish. And that was with their supposed best/thickest leather. So there's some variables there.
I’ve been qouted $275-$300 custom
But I got a made to measure distressed trucker for $175 and that went up like $50-$60 or so to buy now. Still a great value great jacket
My jacket order is currently at the pattern development stages. I'm curious how long it actually takes. Presumably my requirements are always so special that a standard pattern cannot be used. And this needs time.
No front drop?
From the looks of it he nailed the subtle hour glass shape I asked for from the shoulder to hem. And that’s with the belts fully let out. I’m really looking forward to how this one fits. All numbers were hit spot on. I have only myself to blame. I went into an exceedingly rich amount of detail.
Not terribly but yes from 8.5” at the bicep to 6” at the cuff.
Can’t wait to see it! Even the collar is looking better .
Judging from these photo's, it looks like he nailed that collar.
