    Yeah, I'm getting a bit tired of crappy jobs. That's is disgusting and now I'm left with a jacket with all those needle holes...I'm really pissed off with them.

    wow, time for leather putty and black dye. congrats with the fit certainly look much trimmer, that forearm is trim, it will get more relaxed when the lining allows.

    @Riu that jacket looks fabulous on you now!
    Forget about the holes, wear it in the rain or shower and then with pride.
    Those hole can be filled in if you want, but that fit can’t be improved.

    I'm sure man, it's not something that can be unseen but looks like @navetsea @handymike have some tips to try to make it less noticeable.

    That looks great already! Is the premium goat 1.3-1.4mm?

    Thank you! The forearm was already trim before but now it's a bit tighter and I didn't want that. I'll have a look at that leather putty later on after wearing the jacket for a while. What do you mean when the lining allows?

    I'm trying to forget all about the holes but it's just too fresh and it's stuck in my head for now :D I know there is a solution for everything, I was just hoping it won't be the case.

    Indeed, it's good to know there's a workaround for this. I'll see how it shapes by wearing it more and then probably get back to those nasty holes.

    You gotta get through this, cause the fit and look is so cool!
    No one will ever notice. Get the filler, fix it and wear the thing all the time!

    There's nothing else left to do anyway so I'll just go with it. Thank you for your support!

    I do not know exactly. I mean, Shawn would have said something from 1.2-1.3 once. But if it's like my seal brown jacket, then that it fine for me.
    But of course I will report as soon as I have the jacket.

    Thank you.
    I'm curious how it turns out, so that's the jacket with curved sleeves I take it. Did they actually make a new pattern or they had one and modified it? I'm thinking to have my other design in goat but not convinced yet.

    I think I always get a new pattern because of my extreme dimensions lol

    Most likely, I’m sure it’s a easier now for Shawn to make a pattern for you since he knows your measurements so well already :)

    same thing happened to me with my Schott 141. Tailor did an insane job actually making that jacket look like a piece of art from the box it used to be. But he missed holes, didn't finish stitching. Was a mess. I got past it after about a week because the cut is just perfect. I haven't tried this "putty" but what I did do was dampen the holes and then blast them with a hair dryer to get them to cinch up. Now that's with Schott leather, don't know what will happen to the Five Star stuff, so proceed with caution. It didn't 100% fix it, but I'd say at least 70%.
