How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    That coat must cost a lot in shipping! Love them both and the boots. But mainly the coat. Perfect length. Just above the knee and not showing too much thigh. Most modern coats are too short to be proper coats. What kinda lining did you put in that coat? Wool?

    This is a bit later Windward in a very similar style. This one I can wear.

    I got your message, thanks! Beautiful jacket. I am tempted. I really like the other one too but I have that look in a Sportclad.

    They are very difficult to find and one that fits.

    Indeed they are! But no self respecting Midwesterner should have a closet without one! I’ll report back on the SJC when it arrives, hopefully in early December.

    I knew I’d seen that jacket before but it didn’t click together until he said it. I’ve always thought that was an ultimate at least for me,.. the half belt, the pockets and the cuff straps all together. I’ve had Admiral Byrd, Albert Richard on my searches for a few years but they sure don’t show up often. I’d trade a closet full for one of these and just wear the hell out of it. Thanks for posting. Is the 1st one yours?

    Oh yeah, love it. Think he’ll do “Buy one, 2nd half off?”:D

    I'd wish. These are just pics I found online, saved them so serve as inspiration for one of my next Field Leathers projects. I'll be using those vintage buttons you sourced.

    This doesn’t fall into my usual sense of style, but I was watching this Cooper for a while before finally taking the dive. Great condition IMO and a removable liner! With the right turtleneck I’d look like I’m right out of the ‘73 JC Penney Fall/Winter catalogue lol.

    I used a burgundy rayon, with a hide this silky to the touch, I wanted a lining that matched in feeling :)

    Bit the bullet and ordered a Buzz Rickson Gibson MA-1; this will be my first nylon flight jacket for when leather is too much for the occasion

    Not an Admiral but maybe the boy will be the leader of the pack. Out for delivery a day early:
