    Wow! That is an awesome jacket from a great movie! Does the chest pocket (D-shaped one) function like the one in the film? Whoever made it did an outstanding job.

    quick with screen cap
    the spacing on the film jacket is differant but the size of the dude is very different to me
    the open map/pistol pocket functions as per the film one
    i got a little tired of my A2 and Indy stuff ( and it doesnt ever get cold enough to wear the B3 ) so i thought i would take a stab at one of my favourite film jackets
    a little obscure but you only live once

    The map/pistol pocket makes the jacket! The spacing looks fine considering the overall look of the jacket. Can you tell me a little more about the leather type, color (russet?), who made it? You could be starting a High Sierra trend..;)

    Gday
    I went into Mars Leathers (Melbourne,Australia) with an A2 in hand (RMNZ Roughwear) and some screen grabs and a hand drawn diagram
    i flipped thru the leather samples and selected a reddish brown ( i would guess the film jacket is a yellow honey brown) cowhide with a smooth light grain
    if you check my other threads in the jacket section you will see some other Mars custom jackets
    regards
    Sam

    High Sierra is one of my favorite Bogart flicks. That is a very cool jacket you have there.
