    John has just listed a Cossack jacket on his sales page. It's already been sold, unfortunately not to me.

    It's off a Security Aviation Togs pattern from 1932. Unusually for a Good Wear, it's unlined.

    I like it a lot. Were I to get one, I'd ask for the patch pockets to be replaced by handwarmers, add an inch or two to the length, and maybe get it in a natural horsehide, like the Mister Freedom Campus Jacket.

    I like it. Doesnt need handwarmers. Just delete the front pockets altogether. One inside pocket only.

    Out of curiosity, why are these jackets referred to as "Cossack style jackets"? Are they Russian-derived?

    HOLY COW!

    I want one of these. It's just amazing. In goatskin it must be perfect. I wonder why he decided to use the Aviation tag.

    I suppose this is the original from Terry:

    I posted a couple of pics of the original Scully in a thread. Don't recall which one. John saw the jacket and asked to reproduce it. The original is a magnificent goatskin. John identified the Talon zipper as a 1932. I did not ask about the zipper placement, so not sure why it is on the left side. I'll ask John his idea. John has seen a variety of Scully jackets so he was well aware of them, but not sure he had handled one.

    He did not think he had the correct Goat on hand. I am quite sure he will source whatever in any hide and do his work.

    I was floored when he sent me some pics. He sure got the color correct.

    I know he has some other ideas for a label.

    Beautiful piece of leather. [​IMG]

    You would have to look at it on a hanger or on someone else, too small for you.

    It is a beauty.

    I saw that on John's sale page too and was sorely tempted as it was my size. I think though I am like HD, and enough is enough. Maybe? :rolleyes:

    Wow, I have now idea why, (especially since i'm so new to this world) but I just love that Cossack look, especially with buttons instead of a zipper, and less pointed collar, and maybe just a little longer. Of course I'm sure I could get one made eventually, for a price. Just wouldn't be able to retire soon, if I did.

    Thanks for the bump, seeing this for the first time.. Johns re-make is amazing as any of his jackets, but Terrys original... dang! I just got an amazing jacket in and said I'd stop getting new ones, but now that I look at this, my desire to get this or at least something alike is unreasonably big.. :D That goatskin looks amazing..
