Thanks for your patience,
timetravelleretc: I was recently browsing assassin's creed jackets on etsy, and happened to find one that was being shown with pictures from a run you did back in September 2012. So naturally I was wondering, are these actually anything to do with you, or are they a cheaper knock off just being sold under your images? Also, if the Harrier coat is released for pre-order by the end of April, will it be part of the sale too? Thanks.
The Harrier will go on a brief sale when it is released, but I am not certain it will make the end of April. I am working hard on the prototypes, but I want to be certain it gets as much attention to design as our other products.
As for the knock offs, there are loads of them, all over the place. They are invariably terrible, as some of our customers have attested on our FB page and in reviews on our shop. If you want an idea of what the knock-offs look like in comparison with photos of the first Kenway prototypem take a look at this post: http://blog.volantedesign.us/post/36464456398
Keep in mind that prototype was made before I owned an industrial sewing machine, or pattern design software, and I was still running the business out of a 7’x9’ spare bedroom.
konataism: So, I was looking at your sizing chart and either im not measuring myself right or i'm slightly too big for even your biggest coat. I'm really wanting to get an eagle model but i dont know if i should, i've been losing weight recently but is there anything you could say in regards to how the sizing actually works? Most of my coats that I currently have are 2XL size (not including suits/overcoats) and they fit just fine.
Our sizing is somewhat different from basic standard sizing other companies use. Our medium is more or less accurate, but the extremity sizes don’t tend to correspond. We are actually rewroking our sizing system as I write this. As of the next released jacket, sizing will be named based on chest measurement, rather than the ambiguous S-M-L nomenclature. Additionally we are going to include a size up from our current largest, which will be another 2 inch step up.
We currently have a relatively full stock of the jackets we’ve released before now, including the Eagle, so it doesn’t look like we’ll do another run of those until maybe later this year, whenever it seems like we are running low. But we are releasing several new designs in the next few months, and maybe there will be something in those that suits your fancy.
Hope this helps!
For some reason our UPS calculator stopped working, so we’ve enabled flat rate shipping until we can get the problem fixed. Enjoy!
pullingawaythespooks: I was totally planning to get the Kestrel but for some reason the 15% off isn't showing up. Is it only for certain coats?
It should be working for all jackets. I just emptied the site cache and retested it. Looks like everything is in order.
originalnamehere: Have you ever concidered doing designs from the world if inFAMOUS?
No, but I’d like to. I wouldn’t do something inspired by Delsin, since I feel like anyone can do it with a denim jacket from the salvation army and a can of spray paint, but I would love to make Cole’s jacket. Maybe someday.
