This was great. If you’re local, obviously go do this in person. If you’re not, make plans to go. I originally was just going to do this over FaceTime, and I’m glad I didn’t. Victor is a great guy. His passion is infectious. He showed me around Raleigh, gave me a taste of the food and culture there and we just talked and hung out. The process of figuring out what to make was just a part of the whole thing. I think the time spent with him lead to a better, more thoughtful product. Definitely go into this willing to let Victor do what he does best. To me that’s what makes this more special. Dictating exactly what you want will take the fun and magic out of it. I had basic idea and color scheme, and he ran with it. The 3/4 jacket he made me is just sick. It’s better than I imagined. I keep finding interesting little details, which along with the obvious details, that all tie into the discussions we had about the jacket itself and the personal reflections we shared. If you have the funds and are hesitating like I did, don’t. Just do it. It was worth it.
