    Here's something i've been working on with Greg. I have received the bespoke already, and he is finishing the jacket next week.

    I havent fully made my mind between the teacore and the aniline, but I'm more leaning towards the aniline. Reasons being the deeper/warmer tone of black. Only bad thing about it is that it isnt that water resistant at all.

    High guys a long time lurker and just signed up to the forum. I’ve had a few leather jackets over the years but never a high end one. At the moment I have a levi biker which I actually love, a Hugo boss which is nice and light all year round, a jacket from Marks and Spencer’s and a “jacket maker” jacket, all purchased cheap and second hand. So as you can see all typical high street type jackets but nothing really special. I would like one really special jacket that’s made to measure that’s going to be with me for many years and rather than going for something cheaper I’ve decided to save up for one from field leathers, it’s going to be a year of saving but I just think the slim fit is right for me and I love the quality of the leather. Yes I could purchase one at a fraction of the price from someone like five star but I think Greg has something special from what I’ve seen and he’s not even a million miles away from me living in Scotland. So let the saving begin which is actually the exciting but rather frustrating part.

    Welcome to the lounge, you won't be disappointed and it will be worth the effort to save up to have something that you will enjoy forever and be able to pass along

    Many thanks, quite strange that he lives just over an hour from ourselves.

    Would absolutely be worth visiting for a measurement in person, I imagine. Good luck with the savings plan, I'm in the same boat.

    That's quite a fortuitous privilege too. Save your hard earned cash, meet the man and get measured. You will have the best fitting jacket for sure. I'm sure he will enjoy meeting you and will be happy you pick his work against more established Scotland based makers.

    Welcome Mark, I think you are on track! Make an appointment soon before his fame, notoriety, price, and wait times significantly increase.

    Lol I was like, is that one of Greg’s? He’s been making jackets a lot longer than I thought!

    @Carlos840 Sounds interesting even if I'm not yet sure if I really love or not love the Crown zippers (on my LW jacket) as Stu put wax on the zippers to make them smooth-running. Btw. I was talking to Greg about a mystery project yesterday evening, too ;)

    I’m eager to receive my mock-up and finally I’ll go all the way with black Shinki full aniline.

    I think my jacket goes into production in the next week or two. I was starting to doubt the measurements I’d sent Greg, but he sounds pretty confident that he has all he needs.
