      Hey Techno,
      If you don't mind me asking, what was the cost of having the tailor sew in a lining to your unlined jacket? Thanks!

        I found a place down in L.A. that charged me $85- which was a bargain since there was no lining in the jacket, and they had to make a pattern from scratch. All other estimates were about $250 +.
        I found that it's a big savings in price if there's a lining already in the jacket.
        Cheers!

      Hello, I am looking for a more "high end" substantial leather jacket and thought Schott would be great bc almost everything is made in China these days. What is the jacket you are wearing in your profile pic?

        Hi SJC, The jacket I'm wearing in my profile is a custom Buco J-100 repro in Shinki horsehide by Diamond Dave. Highly recommended- the best fitting jacket I've ever owned. And the Shinki horsehide is amazing.
        Cheers

        I've owned several Schott jackets, and they've never fit me very well (except the rare "Schott/Restoration hardware" collaboration.) Be careful with Schott- some years the leather was rather poor quality, some years good. Hit or miss.

        If you're looking for a heavier hide- then I would recommend either Vanson in a cowhide or Aero, either horsehide or cowhide.
        Good luck!
        Cheers
