Hey man, I'm actually considering buying this jacket, it looks super fine (Even for non-cosplay wearing in fact).
The thing is, the visual of the 76 logo on the back looks a bit off on the leather factory website's photo... (For reference : www.theleatherfactory.co.uk/im… )
It looks very irregular and ill-shaped, especially considering the real thing. Can you appease my doubts regarding this ? Or even post a photo of the back so I can see it ? Thanks a lot !

That is literally my jacket.   Its bent round a form here so it looks a little off.  the only thing I would change on this jacket would be to elongate the top of the 7 a little. If you order it, specify this as it will be no problem to change it slightly.  Consider my jacket as the prototype. 

Trust me the jacket looks amazing and mine (The very one in the photo you saw) has been to e3 and blizzard with resounding thumbs up from all. 

The 76 is larger than on the in -game jacket so it fills the space and (IMO looks better than the  76 dangling in the middle like other jackets out there).  but on the game model it LOOKS bigger becuase A:  soldier 76 is hugely muscular and has a vast back anyway and B: the Straps on his back take up a lot of the space on the back.   

Once I removed them in the design it was clear that it would need to be a compromise and trust me it looks great. Yeah if you take a ruler out  they thickened part of the 6 to help everything fit and match up to the bottom but its a TOP JOB.  

Remember that its a real jacket and wont sit Taught on your back, it will wrinkle as a real jacket should :) The fact that these guys are doing the different colours is amazing!.  Note that the jacket pictured is the REAL leather jacket. not faux.   

The only problem I have with the jacket now is I cant wear it out for people asking for pictures and quizing me about it! :)  I honestly didnt think overwatch would be so big.  (The jacket was made in January before release).

Thanks for your reply ! It's really cool that the guys from this site were very responsive and don't mind making some adjustments !
What mostly bothers me is that the thickness of the "straight part" of the 6 changes between the lower and the upper part, I can understand the needs for other changes from the original model though :)
So yeah basically I will try to ask them to make it a bit more even and to elongate the top of the 7 a little bit, thanks for that :)

And other than that well thank you for submitting that design, I think you made a terrific job with your adjustments because indeed Soldier is a fucking beast of a man haha :D
It looks so vastly superior to the shitty plastic jackets out there, indeed the dangling 76 on most of them is horrible and tacky, but on this design it looks pretty cool, it's not just "there", it's actually part of the jacket (as it should be) ! It just basically looks like an actual motorcycle jacket, I'm not that big on cosplaying so I actually want to buy it to wear it outside as any other jacket ! It's going be fun if I get reactions from people, but I really think that even people who don't know Overwatch can appreciate it as a pretty rad jacket !

Yep sure they can make these changes for you. Second iteration of the jacket will be better for sure.  !

It was good walking round E3 with the jacket. It was pretty popular and even had WWE Tag Team champion Xavier woods trying it on!  
Jacket was made by the good people at www.theleatherfactory.co.uk/ as a custom job.  The cost was very reasonable considering the quality of the job they did. Also I got to visit Blizzard and the overwatch team while I was over and they loved it too :)

Yeah I just worked with a company that makes jackets and paid them to translate the game design over. It took a while to adapt the design. Soldier 76 is built like superman and the design doesnt translate well unless you think hard about it first.
