Looks very similar,  but with silver zips

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

Does look remarkably similar. It's $100 over what the original cost at full retail.

The color of this is called Midnight while the original color was called Marine. Can't tell from the photos if there is any difference.

Nice find.  ajb007/martini

If only JV would rerelease their Martian JV Split seam jacket in brown and make a variation in natural.

could be possible, but only can be confirmed if someone may got his hands on it (maybe someone got a store nearby?)

i think it is a bloom effect from the studio lighting.

if you take some pictures from the first run like this

it's also very silvery/shiny.


but take a closer look at the areas in the shadows like here in the top area. Looks dark for me, but photos on the internet...very debateable ajb007/lol

Yes, also very very close/the same, but only can be confirmed if someone see one in person.

If they did a re-run (which sold out very quickly) i would not be surprised if they do another one.
I hope so, cause it got the baseballglove cross stitching in all specific areas like the shoulders, the back and over the pockets.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

during few months i have been talking with john varvatos on facebook asking for a new re-re-release of the jacket.
i sent pictures of the model saying that was used by daniel craig on the movie james bond spectre.
i said that many people is paying a lot of model for this jacket and many others are selling a copies of this model.
they told me many times that my questions will be hear on the team.
now, we can see that this is the exactly model as 1 year ago was released. same cuts, same model.
zips its not a problem if they are silver.
original colour was Marine but midnight is navy blue too. but maybe has a little differences.

the price is expensive... yes. but the other day on ebay.com one guy paid for a used jacket 700usd. if this game now see this web, he will loose his hair.
but as other people say, we need real pictures to confirm if this jacket is near 100% as original release.

at the moment people see that.. this jacket in lesss than 3 weeks will be out of stock.

sorry but i nee say..
people should say me thank you because if this jacket is again out is for me.

Is the collar too short?

The Mantis was always The Bond Experience, but now he is The Bond Experience on AJB as well...

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

I looked at this jacket this morning it was £668, just had another look and its now £795!!!!!  ajb007/mad

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

I have a couple of JV pieces, including an original run SP jacket and all their zips are dark grey coloured rather than shiny bare silver metal, so that picture variance is just lighting.

The colour is a different matter though. Original run / 1st re-run jackets are a vibrant colour blue in person, all be it dark, where as that jacket appears to be a very dark matt blue in keeping with the 'Midnight' definition on the website.

Otherwise that is the same SP jacket and the collar is a match. If I didn't have an original I would jump on one of these. JV jacket prices only seem to be climbing both on the retail and secondary market.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

who has any john varvatos in the city?
i hope someone takes some pictures to appreciate this version.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

The biggest difference is the horizontal seam across the front joining two panels together above the pockets,  the original was just one piece.  I can't tell if the collar is different,  it looks it on the photo,  but comparing the two I can't quite decide.
Also the original has a seam on the sleeves just below the elbow,  the new one doesn't appear to have this. So it's not the same jacket but it's pretty damn close.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

in the official website when you made zoom you can appreciate a seam on the sleeves just below the elbow.

i have been watching details of the first model and this one and are the same.
the only problem is to see the real colour and see how is inside the jacket.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

OK I can see the seam on the sleeves

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

OK I can see the seam on the sleeves,  but the new version still has the additional seams across the front.

Still it's the same model jacket by the right brand just with an extra detail or two.

See the original SA jackets and any of the images of DC wearing it (google images / http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/produ … cer-jacket ) they all have that seam. Its only that old JV file picture that it doesn't show up on and if I remember right it caused a lot of discussion on this forum back when it was first identified as to whether is was an SA match, before people started getting them in hand and realising they were.

Just looking at JBL and the £495 original price tag for the SA jackets. A £300 jump in price is pretty steep stuff for these now  ajb007/crap

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

And here's ajb's very own DZ wearing the JV suede racer with seam...

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/s31KvdSYsdc/maxresdefault.jpg

Its basically the top seam of the slash pockets.

Fair enough,  I've only been comparing the images on this thread,  I wasn't aware of the original discussion  about the Spectre used jacket.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

the jacket is exaclty 100% as the first release with same details.
i have been talking again with john varvatos and he told me that nex weak he will talk with the team to confirm if they hear me about release for third time this model.

the only problem and makes a bit confuse is the colour.
marine and midnight usually are the same colour for some brands. but we need to know if there are some differences in this model or not.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

The original style number of the SA jacket was L855R1L-Y668. This one's is L855T1L-Y668. Not sure what the difference of the R from the T, maybe just the color name? By my eye, it looks like the SA jacket to me.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

"A slick take on a revered silhouette" is what the description says in the beginning...

So it's quite nice that they actually listen and understand the jacket's reputation thanks to Spectre, and are bringing it back, price and all.....  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini  ajb007/smile  ajb007/martini  ajb007/martini

Yes. Consssssiderably.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

that sounds good  ajb007/biggrin !!

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

This is awesome! Hopefully it's not the Menlo all over again and they keep this run identical to the original. I think their original description of the first re-release said something about the jacket being perfect for a "spy", or something along those lines. Now they are saying, as armenianmovieman pointed out, "revered silhouette"; it's the "slick take" part that worries me  ajb007/lol. Even if there are differences, I would buy this because it's the same Brand/quality and hits all the important feature notes.  However, im going to have to settle for gambling with this thing going on sale later this year. Great find PPK!

i don´t know exactly sizes but the web says the all star varvatos uses US size.
daniel craig used in the movie size medium and was very fitted.
i know a guy (185cm) much more taller than daniel craig (175cm) and uses size SMALL and its not fitted as daniel in the movie.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

It certainly looks like the original.  I see no differences to mine.
