    I think the jacket looks great. The shoulders look boxy from the back, but won't they relax over time as the jacket breaks in? MrProper - can you send the link to the VLJ description. Thanks

    Mr. Shawn on Trust :
    “Thanks for your trust :), I will do accordingly.”
    You trust him and he will make Jacket exactly what you want. I’ll post more about his process when my latest jacket arrives next week

    Bugger it. I just ordered a version of this Sears - minus the belt in medium weight premium goat with a dark undertone. Cotton lining - quilted is mostly pointless down here. Always wanted one of these but never liked the belt.

    For me it’s the semi veg tanned heavy goat (1.2 mm). But I don’t know if something has changed since January.

    Seb, what is your length? Did you go 27” or 29”. Mine has a taper at the end of the cuff which is a great design- it clears your thumb but covers the out side of the wrist.

    The zipper stops just below the beltbuckle, so there is the ability to sit down too. Mine isn’t as boxy as some, I can get you pics and measurements if you’d like (for a 38). Mine was fully belted, with the channel only in the back.

    Mike, I went with 29 inches as I am six two. I saw on ebay an original size 44 once and it was close to 30 inches at back. Can't wait to see yours, Mike.

    I didn't specify the angled sleave cuff. I wondered if it would bother me. I did ask for ton's collar as it has so much flair. So I've gone with a similar jacket rather than goign for a copy. It has the elements I've wanted.

    I took the dive back in for one more. That'll be it for me for awhile. 3 goats is plenty for the herd. Once Shawn gets his HH back in stock I'm sure I'll do at least one more.
