    I generally prefer collars up on jackets (product of eighties teenager), but with this style can it be done

    Sure you can pop the top on that jacket.

    How long have you been learning to make jackets? Did you take any course or get training? Super cool. Seriously I'm sure j.c. an hemil started out like this an they surely had there first prototype jacket one day as well

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the support. I’m mostly self-taught while had a lady who got me started but she shortly developed breast cancer and we lost touch. The thing is (around where I am) nobody has experience or interest in making leather jackets, the dry cleaner ladies could provide theoretical hints but there’s very sporadic and material-specific challenges with leather (and leather/fabric combo, which is...well, about every leather jacket). JC has always been a tremendous mentor, very generous in sharing experience.

    Awsome. Its always a good experience talking with john and I totally believe that, I have always been surprised by how much he is willing to share. If he would let me i would come work beside him just to help him and learn

    You have my infinite admiration and support in this. The jackets look well made, you're not afraid to do new stuff and most importantly, you know exactly what you like about the jacket, a certain part, detail, etc. and are doing it that way. That's what I think matters the most.
    I've wanted to have a go at this too but never got thru with it as with so many things in my life so I know how difficult and admirable it is to make that first step and do something that isn't just wishing or even planning.

    That's an amazing jacket @marker2037 . Love the olive canvas and brown leather together and it fits perfectly.

    Very cool @regius ! I don't think I would ever be able to do that.

    The feeling you get from personally realizing your own vision, out of your own hands, is definitely the sublime kind. We've seen this saying a lot in start up businesses, that the founder does it because he/she can't find what suits them so they decided to do it themselves, this is almost a trope and honestly in many instances, I don't quite believe it. But in this case, there is only so much you can discuss/describe to an existing maker and get exactly what you want (with rare exceptions), so I am very happy to be able to make the jackets the way I want it. Of course, when it became a business, I have to find a mid-ground between my preferred fit vs period-correctness vs. what the customer wants.
