    Hey Everyone! If you looking for a budgeted G-1 jacket, maybe this post can help you.
    Before the purchase, i am just lurking around the forum and seeking for a decent nice G-1 jacket. After reading a few reviews from internet regarding that supplier, i would like to take a risk.

    On the eBay, just search keyword "G-1 jacket", you can find a supplier from Pakistan. In side their item page, you can see lots of jacket pictures, and i believe some pictures were "lended" from other companies.:rolleyes: I just chosen the G-1 jacket, which the picture looks like 55J14 model. The first purchase was a 55J14, but by my fault, i have to replace the knits. So the first review will be the M422.

    Customization of the jacket:
    1. Leather: Reddish Brown (They provide varies colors), 1mm thick. (They provide 1mm-1.3mm thick leather, 1.4mm on request.)
    2. Zip: Talon Sliver zipper
    3. Size 46 but Sleeve 64cm, body Length: 66.5cm
    (i wear jacket normally at size 44, but 46 according to their size chart.)
    4. Rounded corner pocket flaps, pencil slot without seam, reddish brown button.
    5. Brown custom waist knitted knit sleeves and waist band.

    Feeling when dressing on the jacket: Not Stiff, but not too soft. Good fit to the jacket, not very loose.

    Price of the jacket:
    USD119
    Price for all customizations:
    USD 84

    Nice jacket, and a very good label. I checked eBay and found FS Leather in Lahore, Pakistan. Is that the company you purchased this from?
    This one looks much better than the pics that are on eBay.

    After sending the jacket to tailor for button and knit part replacement, the jacket look like to the original one.

    The jacket is a little bit tight in size 46. I have a good fit in A-2 at size 44, so i think i have to choose size 48 in this jacket or do some workout:p
    This lining is dark colored silk, so it is comfortable and warm when wearing it.
    Craftsmanship and leather is excellent, the sew is neat and the leather is soft but firm in 1 mm goat hide leather.
