Hey guys, I am looking for a more experienced eye on something. I recently received a custom jacket that I noticed had some surface scraping at the shoulder and back seams (2 piece back split horizontally) where the back joins the sleeves in a T. On closer inspection I noted that, in addition to the scrapes, the leather had actually split at the fold at three of the four joins. My greatest concern was the integrity of the leather, though it is sewn down pretty well. Having contacted the maker, I was told that this is not uncommon, though he did apologize for not noticing during construction whereupon the cracks and scuffs would have been touched up so as to be less noticeable. I was assured that, the cracks will not compromise the integrity of the jacket. So I’m less concerned at this point of the seam tearing, which is a relief. But I am curious if anyone else has ever seen this, because I haven’t. I don’t have dozens of jackets. But I do have several, entirely Goat. This is my first horsehide jacket and this phenomenon puzzles me a bit. So, what does the wisdom of the Lounge make of this? Thanks in advance!
