One Too Many
"Now you’re talking about the cut. Different discussion."
Is it? I know you can customize the front drop in some cases, but with these off the rack Japanese jackets it seems to be part of the model/pattern. And all photos I've seen (without looking for exceptions specifically) I've seen this huge front drop in each one.
Please explain what do you mean by cut vs model/pattern.
It most certainly is.
Cut and pattern is the same thing. It’s how the different panels of leather that make up the jacket are cut and sewn together. That pattern dictates the overall shape of the jacket and how it fits.
When you change the front drop you’re altering the pattern. Even just simply adding sleeve length alters that pattern. It is relatively easy to do since it doesn’t deviate from the original stencil drastically so many companies will allow length adjustments.
I said it’s a different discussion because up until then we were talking about the design.
