    Thank you. A bit blousy at the back, but I can live with that. I need some space for layering.

    Yes, I like this thickness (1.3 mm). I find it strong & soft at the same time, heavy – I think it’s about 1.6 Kg, it squeaks a bit.

    It’s semi-veg tanned according to Shawn, 1.3- 1.4mm thick.

    Follow up on the modified type 3 deerskin. It got up to 84F here and the jacket got a little warm but not hot enough to take it off.

    Can anyone tell me how good the black goatskin is ? Is Shaw's leather a fast tanned hide / very loose fibres on the flesh side or something in between because it is semi veg tanned leather? Also I guess after looking at his hides that they are dyed on top/ spray finished and not dyed through .If someone could give me a picture of the grain that would be wonderful .I hope the AliExpress seller will ship out my front buckle .I searched for ages for a 40mm square slim design . I might ditch the front buckle design if they can't ship it and do the most common photographed luftwaffe design with just the latch and snap button .

    I determined four basic Luftwaffe/French cycling jacket cuts .I call them Long/short Commercial Cut and Long/Short Propaganda cut .The jacket I will send him is a commercial cut.

    I am also working on some reproduction zips for Shawn .But I would need some input if they are of interest or if I need to register a business for myself and start a limited run of jackets myself .

    I just ordered black goat.
    I've only had Seal and Russet so far. Seal is great, I don't like russet that much. There seems to be too much top coat on it.

    Thanks for reaching out to him .I didn't want to spam him with questions on WhatsApp before sending him my package.

    Thanks man, definitely the trimmest jacket I have. Just enough for a shirt. I think this will pass for what I wanted it for, a spring/summer jacket.
    I hope the weather is just cool enough for jacket weather!

    Currently ordering type 3 trimmer (inspired by yourself & Mr Proper)/ unlined for summer, wouldn’t have a jacket on with your temps though

    Anything new to your order aside from a trimmer look? Keeping with the deerskin? I know it was warm but I wanted to test it out. I walked for a mile and was fine, the silk rayon was comfy.
