    Mark does some of THE BEST work out there. Very skilled. I owned one of his custom jackets at one point - super work

    Brett,
    Your NS1 is one of the best-looking jackets I've seen. Just different enough in design and goatskin to boot. Very unique. I really like his NS2 as well, but don't need another traditional halfbelt. I feel I could rock the NS1, but it's so unique looking my wife would quickly realize that I've bought another expensive jacket. A traditional half belt would blend in to my wardrobe, but the NS1 is an attention grabber.

    Thank you for the generous compliments, Grayland! And I couldn't agree more. This jacket remains my favorite. It's like a work of art IMO. And Mark's customer service and craftsmanship are second to none. He actually reached put to me after he read a post where I commented on the somewhat sagging lining offering to fix it free of charge. And in doing so he also successfully extended the sleeve length by about 1/4".

    My next jacket is going to be an NS2 in seal.

    Me thinks your wife will approve of an NS1 ;)

    I really like his jackets especially the NS1 and NS2. When i was planning my modified Sunburst I almost ditched it for an NS1; only the availability of Red Fox through Thurston Bros sealed the deal. Would still love an NS1 one day.

    I'll jump in here with some pics of a custom jacket Mark made for me back in 2010. It was based on a 1941 Army field jacket, minus the buttons. I don't know where he sourced the hh, but, I've never seen anything like it before or since. It is an amazing jacket. Mark does outstanding work. Enjoy.

    I REALLY like that! It's reminds me of a cross between an A2 and a bootlegger!

    You know if I had not known better, especially where the first photo you posted is concerned JM, I'd have thought that was a vintage jacket from 75 or 80 years ago. The grain in the leather, the design, everything about it screams authenticity. Brilliant work from Mark!

    This thread is long overdue for a bump!

    Just scored this early horse hide Norshor off the bay for $300. It is my first from Mr. Fisher but hopefully not the last. A pattern I've not seen before - civilian A-2 with D pocket.

    Its an earlier production jacket which Mark says was made to measure.

    Comes pretty close to a size 40 though:

    Chest: 21 1/2”
    Shoulder: 18”
    Sleeve: 25”
    Back: 24 1/2”
