    Ok, so almost ready to go for it, I am going for russet veg tan goat, it is apparently at about 1.2mm which sounds good. For the thread, I will go for beige as I want some contrast. And the zipper will be size 10 antique brass.

    Last question: which liner is good? Is the cotton twill sturdy and functional?

    Edit: made the whole post more readable lol

    I have the "heavy" satin polyester in one jacket and the drill in the other....the drill is far better. The one I have incoming has quilted nylon...I can update on that one as well but I suspect the heavy cotton drill is the best one.

    Cool jacket and the back is beautiful.
    Only the boxy shoulders are an issue on 5 * jackets. When ordering, it doesn't hurt to point this out. I once sent Shawn a link to the VLJ describing how to prevent those boxy shoulders. I will always send it again with every order.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your russet veg tan goat. I have a modified moto jacket in black premium goat on the way and had Shawn put in a black rayon liner. Amazing the level of customization 5* is willing to do. I'm already thinking of a trucker style jacket next and am looking at a russet or distressed leather next.

    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
