    The real question is: Are they leather lined? If not he's not really serious about pockets...

    The jacket looks well made though... I wonder who the maker is. It seems like a good custom jacket... the customer got what he wanted made to high standards. The fit also seems very good.

    That grey leather is also a nice shade and the knits match pretty well in terms of shade... I am thinking a G1 in these colours would look pretty special

    For those who have a long torso: an elongated type 3. 15EB3C4D-9230-4033-9FBC-C94235150F82.jpeg
    Comes with handwarmer pockets as a bonus.

    My mom had a duster length stone washed denim jacket that she bought in the late eighties and wore for a good ten years afterwards. Even at the time I thought that jacket was kind of funky, but seeing this Type 3 extra long makes me realize but I was too hard on my mom.

    I've seen these in thrift stores in women's sections but yeah, I think my mom had something similar, too. It was also stone washed and probably more in a style of a Levi's shirt than a Type-3.

    I know it's a women's dress but still, pretty atrocious imo.

    Spotted on eBay. Not cheap either. If I were 8’10” with bone claws I’d wear it 100%.

    Something similar was very popular back in the sixties: click here to see. You can still buy the full length version, it's known as a: "Hooded Toscana Coat." Your's for a mere £1625.00. If that link doesn't work go to Celtic & Co and search Toscana.

    It looks very military. Whenever you see a movie depicting WW2, you see a pilot wearing his RAF uniform jacket underneath an Aero Irvin. Could that be the inspiration?
