    Is this a half belt back? Or like a plain back suit jacket type? Monarch made great jackets.

    Yeah man...the collar was the "soul" reason I had to have it!

    It has gathered sides, what I call the "invisible halfbelt" like the Kurland I picked up. I figure making this one shorter is essential. It will be the brown equivalent to the Kurland. Better pics when it returns from Dena's workshop.

    I bought this one today on the SJC sample sale. Had a look at @Metatron photos and review here of the brown one and decided to give it a go. Basically the black vintage one I had in similar style is a mess, stains everything , etc so wanted a replacement.

    Looks sharp! Post some fit pics when you have it. I like the design quite a bit.

    I will!

    I just checked and hadn’t bought anything since January I believe from SJC. All my points for discounts had expired.

    An interesting departure from your usual aesthetic.

    Picked up my first Langlitz today at a garage sale. Seller had 0 clue what they had. I kid you not, came with a pair of Sz 28 Aero leather pants for a STEAL. Interior is pretty beat up, but exterior is immaculate. Nothing a little cleaning can’t fix. It fits pretty tight so it’s likely a catch and release. Same goes for the pants. Jacket fits like a 40?

    22” p2p
    23” sleeves
    19.5” shoulders
    23” back length
    22” front length

    Wow, beautiful jacket! Everything is in place: all belt loops, the laces, all zips pullers... even a Sam Browne belt. Enjoy it! :D

    Got my battered tan Wayfarer through today. This hide is incredible but, man is it tough. I have a tumbled Brown Highwayman and that is my only reference point for jackets like this and their pliability. Of course the tumbled brown needed breaking in but was a little more forgiving. I love the battered tan though, really beautiful.

    It fits great and I am looking forward to seeing how much better it'll look when it is broken in.

    i got it a couple days ago. I'll take some pics once I can and there's sunlight at home.

    It fits pretty well I'd say. The sleeves are longer than what I'd go for but they're not as wide as I expected.

    It is short in the back(Around 57cm or 22,5") but must be that I haven't worn a jacket in months because it felt quite long somehow. For being goatskin it is actually rather stiff and holds up on it's own.

    Me too. I really like the cut, extreme front drop, ala 50’s excelled chest pocket and the collar. I’m tempted.

    Quick phone pics, not the best!

    I massaged it a bit but still stands up on it’s own.

    Sleeve lenght is longer than what I prefer but I having had a bad experience with sleeves being too short I prefer it this way for now because it doesn’t have any sort of strap or buttoning cuff. I’d have like it to be able to adjust it but it’s fine. I also have a vintage one like this.

    Looks superb! I don’t see the black version on the SJC site. They have a russet and a two tone. I think the black is the best of the bunch. Well done. I really like that!

    That's a pretty cool jacket. I've always wondered about SJC quality. They offer great looking pieces at competitive prices.

    Last week I ordered a couple of club collar dress shirts, 20s style. VAT was deducted at check out for European customers (total amount is divided by 1.2). They were shipped the same day and delivered the next day. I was positively surprised by the quality of both material and construction: Mother of pearl buttons, split shoulder yoke, button placket is one with the shirt (no pre-fab) etc etc.

    Unfortunately the shirts fit like a tent. Zero taper to the waist and huge sleeves. I guess that's true to the 20s style? Apart from that, the shirts are beautiful so instead of returning them to SJC I took them to my tailor to have the sleeves and waist taken in.

    Great product but I wish the fit would be just a bit more contemporary.

    I just received this Ross Langlitz made green label Columbia that looks like it straight to a time capsule when Ross finished it
