Why would go that route.8 weeks from now on max. From the factory to him in the US, then to me in germany.
With the PP protection running again I'm not in a hurry anymore. It's not like I haven't enough jackets... [emoji6]
So it's being made in India. Then shipped to the US for button holes to be added and then shipped to Germany.Because all this button stuff will be done in the US
Yes indeed! A big bummer. But after trying 3 different shops in India, ruining 3 jackets, and wasting all the time, leather, and labor costs associated with the 3 jackets that were wrecked, I will not try that again. I have been working hard on a permanent solution for the dead machine since then.So it's being made in India. Then shipped to the US for button holes to be added and then shipped to Germany.
It should have its own passport.
It's a pity and a touch surprising that they can't find another button holer in India and save the extra costs to ship to Anerica and the higher labour wages involved.
I was wondering if you have received your jacket yet. Sorry to see that you haven't. Personally, situations like these have less to do with patience for me, and more to do with "anything can happen while enduring extended wait times"... As much as I like GW jackets for example, I couldn't abide the 2 year wait for a new one. I could be in an accident, contract some sort of illness, or flat-out die in that time-span, etc.. Same kind of thing goes for the maker as well. To me, life is too short for the kind of aggravation you have been experiencing, and I would have ended it before getting to this point..I have no updates to post in case anyone is wondering. I was promised a completion time of max 8 weeks and photos along the way. 5 weeks have gone by now but no real news (apart from the new button machine) and no pictures. Apart from the button holes the jacket could have been put together ages ago so I don't really understand the ongoing delay.
Slowly but surely I'm losing my patience.
It is true we had had more than our share of issues and delays over the past months, however, things are sorted out now and your jacket should be delivered to you by the date I estimated. The jacket is due to arrive to me on Tuesday the 20th. It will be finished up and shipped out when complete.Oh, that sucks. [emoji30] I hope you get these back..
Jay messaged me and told me that the A1 will be shipped to him on friday, then the buttons will be done snd it'll be shipped to me. I'll keep you updated.
