Caught a little break in the gloom and really wanted to post some at least half way decent pics of this jacket along with my thoughts on the build. I’ll update with better pics tomorrow but had to put something together for this jacket as it really is a gem imho. First thing I want to say is that I believe Five Star makes a great jacket. I won’t compare it to Aero or any of the other high end, top dollar makers. I don’t think that is fair and there really is no point. The important point is simply that the jacket materials, construction and fit are all good! The appeal for me with 5 star is my ability to influence the design, completely tailor the fit, and have it turned around for a relatively small amount of money in a very short amount of time. I have hundreds of images of vintage jackets that I would like to have built. This process with Shawn brings a huge smile to my face. I provided the following size information to Shawn to guide the build: Neck hole diameter: 18” Shoulders: 19” Chest p2p: 22.5” Waist:20.5” Hem:21” Sleeve:26.5” (Outseam) Sleeve: 19” (inseam/pit to cuff)-high armhole Bicep:8.5” Elbow:7” Cuff:6” Armscye: 11” 1” front drop 26” back length 4.5” collar point (wide collar) The jacket is based on this extinct vintage Halfbelt: my jacket is seal brown premium goatskin, with poly satin seal brown liner and thread. I took the liberty of adding ornamental horn buttons to the cuff, which are standard with olive green storm cuffs. And some fit pics: I am thoroughly delighted with the end result and look forward to additional reproduction projects with 5 Star going forward! I will upload some better shots of the jacket in the coming days. Have a great weekend loungers!
