Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

i recived an answer from john varvatos about the jacket of the website.

they said:
It is almost identical. The shade of Navy on the link that you sent is slightly different. Still, very tough to tell the difference and it is the same model and the same skin.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

Hi guys just to let you know I have now received the new JV suede racer jacket .
I am having a little trouble uploading the pictures on this site so I've sent them to jared nomak  to upload on here.
You will see that my original JV jacket has been well worn the new one is slightly darker in colour  which is no bad thing if you really want to wear it quite a lot ,
The herringbone stitching on the new jacket appears to be a slightly thinner gauge stitching than on the original jacket.
But that aside all of the stitching on the seams and round the pockets is identical to the original jacket including the inner lining , there is a slight difference on the inside behind the zip on the new jacket it has a suede panel on the original jacket it was a kind of nylon fabric.
Also the suede used on the new jacket feels slightly thicker to touch than on the original jacket but this might be due to the fact that I have worn my original jacket quite a lot .
So is it worth the price tag well in my opinion yes if you do not have one or  cannot get hold of one of the original jackets  or if you're like me you have an original jacket and you  have worn it quite a lot then yes it's best to have a back up  and for those of you that didn't buy one originally then yes I would definitely buy one now .

P.S  in the pictures of the jackets The original one appears to look slightly  Grey in colour this is just a trick of the light and the fact that if you brush  suede in a different  Direction it will look  slightly lighter or darker.

thank you so much for pictures but... could you send more pictures about inside of both jackets to see differences?
thank you.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

To those of you who own both this jacket and the Matchless blouson, could you give an idea of the differences between the two in terms of fit & sizing? For example, I generally wear a size medium, including for the Matchless, and the fit is ideal. Can I expect more or less the same fit from the JV, or should I opt for a different size? Thank you.

36

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

For me I find the JV is bigger in the same size. Not as fitted at the waist.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

Thank you for that, though I must ask: is it bigger in a size down sort of way, or tolerably so?

38

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

you can never trust in the size you are wearing because everytime the size of the cloth varies.
you can see a daniel craig on the movie, he uses a size medium and its very fitted. daniel craig is about 177cm tall. i meet people using size Small and is 190cm tall and he needs up his weight if he want this jacket becomes fitted as daniel craig in the movie.

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

I think a size down in the JV wouldn't have fitted correctly in the chest and shoulders...there is more room in the mid section but otherwise the fit is similar.

Exactly what I wanted to hear (my echo chamber won't change the fit of the jacket when it arrives, but I'll sleep soundly until then).

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

I have an original JV Spectre jacket for sale if anyone is interested :-

Re: John Varvatos Suede Jacket BACK?

Could this be the same jacket, but in black?

No. The black jacket is listed as a knit, not goat suede. Also the JV from Spectre was over twice the listed retail of the black one.
