    Now I'm curious too. I often just like to imagine how I'd go about fixing something and it usually turns out I wasn't as far off as I thought I would be but here, I'm lost.

    I know that on German jackets, they use a strip of stretched elastic tape, stitched to the part of the leather that is to be elasticized. Lol!

    I don't know the tailoring of the jacket (if it is an expandable gusset) but would it not be a similar operation to the snap back on the Brooks?
    Open the liner attach elastic to each side seam and close?

    If it is an 'Open' expander I can see that it might cause bunching and that might not be pleasing.

    Either way Jonesy please let us know how it goes.
