    Not familiar with FJ. Try buyee, I will look at FJ. I typically don't pay much attention to their fees, the jackets I'm buying are not available anywhere else so I guess it just part of doing business.

    Yeah FJ have pretty decent fees i believe but even if it was more expensive that would be ok for me, they offer great services and they always pack items very well, last time they even found a smaller box to pack my items so i paid 150e of shipping instead of 250
    But yeah i'm gonna try buyee for sure thanks to you

    I have used both Buyee and From Japan many times and they are big rivals each trying to match/undercut the other all the time. Buyee used to charge 10% of the item price as bidding fee then reduced to 5% then to a fixed fee like FJ. FJ used to need the bidder to pay deposit before bidding then use the deposit to place bid (deposit will be returned if unsued within a certain period) but now allows a direct link to the credit card like Buyee. I think FJ still has a maximum direct link amount per month that if you go over, you would need to pay a deposit.
    The tricky part with Yahoo Auction JP is that the end time can be extended if someone else places a higher bid. I have had auction that went on for an hour after the initial end time because every time someone places a higher bid in the last minute, the end time is extended for another 10 mins. It does not matter that your actual bid is higher, as long as someone else places a bid that trigger a move on the bid price then the time is automatically extended.

    This was 3 months ago when I asked for this shade of brown as Greg had enough hide for 3 more jackets. I felt I had to get on it when I saw mrproper's jacket.

    What design and hide did you end up getting?

    @jonesy86 Wow, you are a lucky guy to get one from JC. This one is impressive, both leather and overall jacket design. One of my personal favorites here. Fit is very good IMO. As @Marc mndt said please don't swim with it...but...why not?! ;)

    to answer @Marc mndt 's question...one Thedi will probably this one made of cocoa brown washed Buffalo (not the pictured brown goat) with slightly modified pocket design and removable black shearling collar. This one is more physical / fittet cut than normal Pea Coat design as Pea Coats are too loose for my taste. Not 100% sure yet if I rather change the order but on the other hand this jacket/coat design would be a perfect addition to my collection. In other words I don't need another HB, cross-zip, Cafe Racer, etc. and I always wanted a tight fitting Pea Coat.

    @Marc mndt Thanks, I also think that it's cool but I'm still concerned about the length and consider to ask Theodoros if he can make it shorter...not sure if it would then fit. I also consider to remove the halfbelt on the back.

    I can see why you would like to have it a bit shorter. Something like 4 inches? Not only would it look better, I think it will also be more wearable in terms of comfort: note that the jacket doesn't have a centre back vent like traditional trenchcoats do. The longer it is, the harder sitting down will be.

    What about the halfbelt? Why do you think it doesn't look good?

    Not sure if shortening would ruin the look of the jacket. Perhaps I'll leave it as it is even if it is a gamble. I hope that it's still wearable. I don't really wear a jacket when sitting down, so this will not be an issue. Normally I like half belt jackets but in this case I prefer the plain back.
