    Congrats my friend. Awesome seeing you in a new JL jacket. Leather looks awesome, brown cxl is really gorgeous. Love the southpaw quirky vertical chest zipper, glad to know I'm not the only weird one here lol.

    The fit looks superb, it took a while for me to warm up to my jacket as well because how incredibly stiff it was at first. It will look better once it relaxes and the shape starts to form. My jacket also had fit issues with the waist/Hem being too big that ended up making the jacket look tubular so I brought it back to JL as well.

    Maybe wear the jacket consistently for now to break it in a little, you will have a better idea then how much is needed to be trimmed then send it back to JL for a better fit. Sleeve width/length is perfect.

    I can understand that if you prefer a slim fit (like me), the jacket seems too wide.
    But I think that goes great with the style of your jacket and it looks really good.
    Hem, yoke is fine and i like the chest pocket much.
    Very cool jacket.
    Congratulations and have fun wearing them.

    Looks great! Yeah break it in a little first and it should drape a little. My jacket is obnoxiously loose, but it allows for little things like being able to keep my hands in the pockets while sitting much more comfortable.

    That leather looks amazing, super smooth, and of course can't go wrong with the jin jacket, but I like your tweaks. Yeah the beauty of a bespoke jacket is getting those little things like your south paw chest pocket, those are the little things that go a long long way.

    Have fun breaking it in!

    A question I have been asked. Never, is my immediate response!!

    I think it looks great and in line with your preferences, as you have stated. Nothing else matters. Wear it, and wear it well. It’s a beautiful jacket and looks great on you.

    Jacket looks very nice and I appreciate how well it matches your boots! IMO, it is a little big. If you're going to layer with it, it should be OK though. For just a t shirt, I think it's a little big.

    Fit is a personal thing, but I think it looks absolutely perfect on you, wouldn't change a millimeter! Much tighter and it would be harder to live life in it, and do things like talk on your phone, eat a meal, or push your grandkids on the swing.

    I also like the line of stitching in the hem - it's a subtle touch of style!

    No, because it isn’t.
