    I have never had a cordovan jacket and I can't picture in my head what colour contrast stitching would look good.
    All I can think of is light tan.
    Anyone have pics of a cordovan jacket with contrast stitching,

    Gold or Light tan could be nice too.

    I think my old Highwayman, now in the possession of Dan T, had olive stitching. It was hardly noticeable.

    Would be cool if they could do a "strawberry" like some of Eastman's A-2s.

    I like contrast stitching that is subtle, but if you want bolder you could go with white, I guess. I would hate that, especially once it starts showing dirt.

    A colour that would stand out but not too loud or inappropriate for a vintage look.

    ^^^i think it would depend on the jacket style as well. Some styles highlight stitching better than others.

    As Colin G says, olive stitching with olive lining, I have this on my bootlegger and it complements the colour well.

    I also have olive stitching on my cordovan Bootlegger and it looks great. Very subtle but it’s there when you look for it

    I also thought about this for quite a bit when I ordered my Cordovan jacket - In the end I am very happy I listened to Carry and Ton and went with OD! Very subtle but still a chance to recognize and admire the outstanding stitching work.

    I think the Sunburst and Type 3 both call out for extreme contrast stitching.
    Well done!

    Please post some more photos of this jacket, especially fit photos in the daylight! We rarely see Sunburst's around here, even less two-tones. I've got an interest in such a jacket, just want to see it more! :)
