those are GW worthy lapels! :p
The lapels on the original where a bit more conservative but when I saw them on the mock-up I thought they could use some extra oomph.

JC actually had a hand in this jacket, he supplied the ball and chain zipper which is an original 30s Talon.

^^ note the handwarmer pocket behind the d pocket.

Is this the Kelpie leather?

This looks like a coat that I picture myself sitting around a fire while camping. I like the wool coats. Someone posted one with curved pockets that looked really nice
It is. Green Kelpie! Pretty much run through leather jackets. Not much left of interest there for me (besides maybe something like an obscure vintage piece). I primarily wear my wool jackets in the winter b/c Chicago gets far too cold for leather once fall passes by. Should get a decent amount of wear out of this one. I’m lining it in black corduroy, so it will be toasty.

Have them put internal zips so you can send it to Shawn to get a CHL liner attached.

Maybe I should. They definitely look amazing on the black jacket.

Man I've searched the internet back and forth for weeks hoping to find suitable buttons, without succes.

So glad you got these for me. Thanks again bud!
But which color is the true one?
That's a good question, the answer being: I have no idea. Lol

Shades of browns are notoriously impossible to capture on photo.

I dyed the buttons to match the swatch Greg sent me. The swatch was dark brown with some Burgundy undertones:
