John made me a Modoc in size 40. A zipper is nos double slider crown #7. The hide is Shinki light russet, which is quite darker than older batches (too much sake during Covid?). The lining is nos english rayon. What can I say, the jacket is spectacular. I have a Brunello Cucinelli leather jacket but it simply pales in comparison.

PS
I know that John has recently made a trial modoc jacket in his size, 44 I think, in Russet Italian horsehide and it is gorgeous as well. It has very interesting buttons.

Love the collar! What a nice looking hide and that's a really nice half belt! Congratulations to having a great piece made just for you! How long did your project take from order to delivery?

Good looking jacket! Not a fan myself of double zippers but if it works for you then it’s fine.

By the way, I don’t get the making of all samples in size 44.

This is a great looking jacket!
Congratulations!
I tried one on once, and was delighted to find how easy it was to wear. Kind of like Himel’s Frobisher in that I think it would look good on a whole lot of body types. This hide looks softer than many of his options- perfect for this style.
Let’s see some fit pics :).

Since John is a size 44 I would imagine he makes them in that size so that he can actually wear them around and see how they fit and move in real life. I see your point though that it might be nice for him to offer samples in other sizes so that people who aren’t a size 44 could have a chance to pick up a Good Wear without the wait.

Agree that it looks good on more body types and that’s why I went with it. Ventura is more restrictive/selective. Fit pics coming soon.

That’s the way to test a jacket for John. He makes a sample jacket the first time around or when he makes changes and wants to test them out himself as he wears the size 44. I think he is a perfectionist and likes to test the fit to make sure it works for customers too. No surprise that with his perfectionism it takes a bit long to get his jackets. Anyway so he actually got/ bought 40’s Californian, it looks a bit different than his other jackets. He recently made a test jacket that replicated it. It is shorter and the collar is more curved. Really good looking. He sent me some fit pics of both old and his replica.
