I’ve been looking at a lot of old posts about sheepskin jackets (b3s Anj4s etc) from early 2000s and my impression is that a vast majority thought/think that RM make/made (apparently their NZ business shut down) the best sheepskin jackets.
Why is RM revered so highly? What made their products...
Other than Eastman, who makes a B2 flying cap?
Seems a relatively simple design so unlikely but, are there any major differences between the makers caps?
if you have one, can you please post some pictures of you (or others wearing) one of these caps?
A double zip i guess it would be called? You can zip up the jacket and unzip it from the bottom. I do this quite often on some parkas and such that i have when its too warm around the stomach and waist but still keeps the upper chest shoulders and neck warm and protected.
Figure it would be a...
Thanks guys, it is what it is i suppose. The jacket is meant to fit a certain way and it is cut to reflect that plus, yes, I'm sure the bunching helps with movement when stretching. Anyway, who cares i guess, ill never see it from the back when I'm wearing it ;)
On a jacket like the ANJ4, some makers use one panel for the back (LW) others (like AERO) use 2.
I also notice that on many of the photos where people are wearing the jackets, there is a sort of bunching up and sticking out/up/bulging from excess material on the back around the arm pits. Trying...
Pretty sure Lost Worlds is a no go.
Gave him a call couple years ago about fitting and he was pretty firm about "we make it the way we make it, no mods, no changes to length of sleeves or any design changes". I had originally called about fitting because my waist is very narrow and shoulders...
So I'd like to have an ANJ4 made for me but with some amendments to the usual specs.
Merino fleece, two way zipper and buttons on the bottom like Aero or Eastman do sometimes.
Can you suggest any top quality makers that would be worth talking to?
That is a sweet looking Jacket. Thanks for posting the pictures @thor. At first i didn't understand why people had so many different jackets. The more time i spend on this forum the more i understand it, there are so many beautiful pieces...
a couple points:
1) The get on the phone said they didn't do "fitting"/cut to measurements. Id totally be happy doing this if it means the jacket reaches me and fits right from the start instead of back and fourth bla bla.
2) who are these other folks? I dont know many makers and im quite new...
1) that jacket is a beaut.
2) why does the leather stretch away from the Zip in that stitched triangle area by the bottom of the zip? Its only on one side. is this to almost replicate the benefit of having the two buttons at the bottom and sitting down?
3) the jacket in your profile...
