Very nice coat.Personally I've never been interested in car coats and I don't think I ever will.
But look at the execution of this one. Perfect for showing off Greg's amazing skill as a machinist.

I love the look of those Art Deco buttons. I sent Greg NOS 30s buttons for my latest project and he liked them so much that he had a company reproduce them in black and brown.

Thanks for your reply! Well the idea is a straight zip. I’m not going for the cafe racer body in any case. It’s between the 2 collars. The body will be a single zip short fit (about belt length- and I wear high rise) hand warmers, no chest pockets. Clean tailored back with action back (could add a half belt but leaning towards not at the moment)I think a mouton collar can look great on single breasted jackets like half belts but would look completely off on a cafe racer body. Just my thinking.
it looks weird when a dress shirt is worn under a jacket with regular collar.
His standard collars are too conservative and bland IMO.
Fellow loungers, I have a jacket coming up with FL, and am thorn between a regular collar or the cafe racer collar any advice? The goal is to have a jacket that I can wear casual and a bit classy too. Temperature around 5-15 degrees Celsius.
If regular collar, I could add a removable fur collar. (I lové fur collar but I think I like the cafe racer collar more than regular collar without fur) it looks weird when a dress shirt is worn under a jacket with regular collar. Which collar would enhance the shoulders? Having sloped shoulders.? Thanks for any input!

Why not a CR collar with a button-on fur collar?I lové fur collar but I think I like the cafe racer collar more than regular collar without fur
Why should that be the case? It's just a question of construction. If normal buttons are sewn inside below the collar seam and the fur collar goes up parallel to the mandarin collar and only then folds over, I don't see what should speak against it. But of course it needs a few prototypes, which cost time and money. And in view of the order situation, I would also rather wave it off.Greg did not recommend it saying it will crease/damage the collar.
