Hi all, I began my quest to buy a sheepskin jacket around half a year ago when I saw a pre-war Irvin in a vintage store. I've always had a thing for sheepskin collars on coats, but when I saw the huge collar on the Irvin and it's overall design, my heart was set. I started researching, eventually coming across Aero Leathers and Eastman leathers. This was how I discovered my first roadblock: The irvin doesn't have pockets - perhaps not suitable for a winter coat? Holly at Aero recommended the B-6 or D-1 to me for pockets, so I expanded my search slightly. My research led me to this awesome forum, where I've effectively gone down a rabbit hole, and I'm now pretty torn. Here are my options as they stand: ANJ-4: This has the benefits of pockets and a BIG COLLAR - super cool. But then, a longer fit than the others, which might not look great on me being as I'm pretty short (5'7). B-6: As it stands, this is at the bottom of the pile for me, but that's only based on photos I've found online. This one seems to have the smallest collar? D-1: pockets and a wind flap (is that the right term - the bit that pokes out when you have the zip undone about 1/3 down?). More practical than irvin and anj-4 perhaps? Irvin: The beast. If i don't get one now, I will one day. The issues are firstly, no pockets and secondly, potentially too warm for the UK? I've read a lot of posts stating that it gets far too hot when you're walking around in temps greater than 5 degrees celsius. I'm going to make the pilgrimage to Galashiels to try all of them on and figure out the ideal size but any input would be much appreciated. I've looked into Eastman as well but I can't find many pictures of people wearing them, and the hide on the d-1 looks a bit weird to me on their website? Thanks for your time.
