And, a few fit pics.
I was happy to see that 5* sent this jacket in a box. I didn't ask for that but they did it and it was a welcome improvement.

Beautiful jacket man! Love the shoulder gussets. I am planning to have them in my next jacket for the mobility. How is it working for you when you raise your arms?

Unboxed this morning! Here are some lit shots, not much sun today. I’ll post fit pics in the jacket O’ the day thread when I run to the post office later this am. This goat is entirely different than the seal brown on my other jacket. No squeak, more of a matte finish like the black one. A bit heavier. All in all really nice. The new tag and red liner are sweet!

Yeeeees, that's an upgrade from the old one plus no SQUEAKS. That's a winner

I am seriously impressed that you didn’t open it yesterday! Whenever I pick up a jacket I have to fight the urge to open it on my way back home.

And yeah, this version looks real nice as well! Seeing your pics of the seal goat makes me even more excited for my trucker that I’m waiting for.

What zipper did you go with? Looks like a YKK?

I was wondering if you’d received yours yet! Yes it’s a number 7 antique brass YKK.

I really like the look of the YKK! It gives it more of a 70’s vibe for some reason.
My trucker would’ve arrived already, but I made a stupid mistake with the sleeve length. They are redoing the sleeves before they ship it out.

I should receive this gift jacket for my sister later this week. A 5* custom size black deerskin trucker, dark brown stitching (can't tell myself if it's brown on photos), black silk rayon lining shell/sleeves, leather lined hand pockets, double welt hand pocket construction, snap button closure to inside pocket, relocated new white logo. No buttons ordered as I'll place my own Japanese donut buttons myself. This deerskin looks good, hope this is better than the premium seal goat they offer. I might want one too lol

Thanks! The gussets work fine and i have great mobility in the jacket. I like the slightly more relaxed fit of this one vs. my first 5star.

@ton312 perhaps we got the same goatskin for.our jackets? I find !ine squeak free so far and a more matte finish as well. Your jacket looks great!! I hope Shawn starts a dedicated page to TFL patterns lol.
