^ Great post and review! The jacket looks to be an absolutely perfect fit and the hide is lovely! In thinking about the shoulders, they remind me of 50's leather jackets that had shoulder pads sewn into the seams, like this campus jacket:

I have always removed the padding but the square shoulder does remain. I don’t know if this aesthetic is by choice for Greg or not but is certainly not without precedent in vintage pieces.
Thank you! Absolutely, nothing's new under the sun. I really don't know either but he's proved a lot of times that he can make different shoulders and adjust the pattern to the client's taste so I can only assume that it is by choice. A gorgeous jacket you have there by the way!
Nice review, @Jaime . On a side note, what are the pants? Always on the lookout for non-dark pants to wear with leather. Great match, give some contrast and counterpoint to the jacket.
Thank you Will, they are a pair of carpenter pants by Dockers:
Got them because of the same reason you mentioned and even though they are nothing special they are comfy, sturdy and give a nice silhouette.
He’s the Edward Sexton of leather jackets.
Greg is a master of his craft, the silhouette one either loves it or hates it.
He truly is! It is quite impressive to see the product of his craft, no matter if you are a jacket aficionado like us or just a civilian.
