Thank you - yes I asked Rip to shorten the sleeves from 68cm to 65cm based on the fit of my first lightning jacket - might have been hair too much but not bothered about it too much. Kinda balances out the longer body of the jacket on this one vs the lightning. (this one also being 3cm longer than my lightning)A great looking jacket!
Did you spec the sleeves that length?
I’m happy that you received it but why the sleeves. They were literally perfect. I’m not even joking when I say this that I literally saved your photo below in my phone so I could send it to RIP as the way I wanted my jacket to fit.
The new one needs to settle in but it looks puffy in the middle but that’s probably just from being folded.
The good news is you have received and please update this when you have had a chance to wear it more like your other one because it will surely loosen up and mold yo your body.
*edit*. Is the build quality still on par with your other?
It’s not hard to imagine he’s probably terrible to work for and that’s why he can’t expand and have a normal operation like the Japanese brands. Any intelligent person with his talents would hire a few machinists and an office person to handle day to day and you would then see California Sportswear on standardandstrainge.com, rivetandhide.com etc.
Out of curiosity, what concert/band was that? I completely missed itYeah I have no hard feelings, it’s business and they still make a cool jacket. No doubts about that.
I honestly think they were distracted by this concert that they were a part of, they had been advertising on instagram for weeks and the band were wearing LL jackets so this might of been a big promotional deal for them.
London is literally the home to the best or atleast done if the best tailoring in the world. I know leather is different but once you get a feel for the material a great tailor should catch on quickly. That’s what it’s all about, making people of all shapes and sizes look good in their garments.
In response to my question about the differences between Dominator and Corsair, Rip wrote to me at the time: "It is the same pattern as the Dominator just without the breast pockets and the hand warmer pockets are slightly different angle."Anyone know the difference between a Dominator and a Corsair, other than the pocket configuration? They look fairly similar otherwise . Thanks.
