    Field Leathers

    Field Leathers have posted a cloth prototype of a Peter's Tailor Made jacket to their Instagram Stories. There are photos of an original on the Freewheelers website. I prefer the prototype because it's cleaner, though I'm sure that Greg could build a stripped down version.

    The Background . . .

    The two windows with the wrought iron railings open onto what was my living room. Glad to see that Sounds is still there.

    The Background . . .

    The Oostpoort in Delft. I lived on Brabantse Turfmarkt in an apartment above the Kruidvat between 2005 and 2008. It's a lovely city.

    East West cross zip. No idea of the price, but it's listed on Vintage Great Power's Instagram. They have also just sold this very cool Le Chevron wool cross zip.

    Field Leathers

    If I could make two more suggestions... First, ask Sam and Greg what they advise. They're both experienced at designing and making jackets. (Sam created the Ladies Cossack for Aero.) And it generally pays to listen to what someone like that says. Second, if you want to go longer in the body...

    Field Leathers

    @jimmer_5 I've seen a few longer cross-zip jackets or coats with a belt at the waist, but they might not be your thing. Greg did a really cool collared café racer for a guy called Roman. It's up on his Instagram. You could copy the style and add a few inches to its length. Butterworth...

    Not a deal, but Bonham's is auctioning one of the original Fonz jackets. The estimate is $50K to $70K. No measurements are given. :D

    How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    @Mrfrown how does the jacket fit through the body? It looks slightly big in the shoulders, but I don't know if that's just your pose! I'd be tempted to leave the body as is, but I like longer café racers and I think it looks good as is, but shorten the sleeves. I would also see if you could...

    Who’s going to pick up this Himel Bros?

    The Himel has got zips that run up to the armpit, which should make it easier to pull on that @Carlos840's Vanson. My favourite is this one by an unknown maker I saw on eBay a while back. I keep on getting tempted to get a replica, but I'd have the bottom cut square and replace the laces with a...

    Tall jackets

    I'm a couple of inches shorter than @Rkm1972 and @MrProper, but my arms and legs are disproportionately long, so I have the same problem! Iron Heart IHJ-54 in XXXXL has a 25.7" pit-to-pit and 28.2" sleeves. It's currently out of stock, as is the collarless IHJ-35, and rather expensive...

    Thanks @jeo. I keep on thinking about getting a Field Leathers jacket, and was meaning to ask what the current waiting time is.

    @Superfluous if you email Iron Heart UK, they might be able to get it shipped over from Japan.

    My First In Person Leather Jacket Purchase - Mister Freedom Campus Stallion Jacket

    The Campus looks good, unfortunately they don't come up big enough for me. The Mister Freedom store is fantastic. Definitely worth a visit if you're in LA.

    There's another cheap size 42 East West jacket on eBay. It's from the same seller that @ton312 posted. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/174759087243

    CP Company leather car coat in a size 48. Located in the UK. Looks pretty cool, but the sleeve measurement (shoulder to cuff) is listed as 22", which I would want to check... https://www.ebay.com/itm/193909708106

    There's a red mockup on the Field Leathers Instagram story. Anyone else think that he should offer this colour of leather?

    Elvis had a deerskin suit in a similar style.

    The jacket that @ton312 posted is similar to a North Beach one that Mick Jagger gave to Keith Richards.
