Looks great! Did you go with shoulder zip or on the side or both? Lined or unlined with only lining in sleeves?

I got a JL package sitting at my front door now that I can't get to for another few hours. I hope our neighborhood watch do not fail me today...

Just arrived. KDL-72 size 44 custom cuff and waist band. Heavyweight CXL Steerhide. 2mm variation in pocket top stitching between the two sides. Honestly, I am ok with it, from any maker, in this thickness leather. This one is gonna take a while to break in. A side note about JL's custom capability is that they can split down the leather either the whole hide or individual panels. The OP told me this from his first hand experience. And is the case on some of my builds as the action pleats or underarm panels works better in thinner thickness while the outside shell panels are full on thicker weights. I am back in the heavy weight game, thanks to Steelbahama's 6oz jacket. And I was also inspired by MrFrowns Langlizt, so the quilted elbows. And the pocket top stitching I got from a Star Glove jacket and also a Himel jacket had this detail. Big shout out to JL for another grail. Thanks for reading and now pics,

The way they did it is more like an elbow/fore arm pad, so it goes from the elbow to mid fore arm. It is a bit more coverage than usual.
I like that it covers and strengthens the forearm area; it‘s an area that has to endure a lot of strain in jackets that I physically work in because you end up pressing your forearms against stuff a lot, its a very natural movement.

It's the same with my Lewis leather Racing Jacket. The padding goes right down to the forearm.

Thank you, Professor X! Props to Canuck for putting me onto the shrunken horse before my SF trip.
