    Always a pleasure to get to see this jacket! So friggin nice!

    This looks good! Can't wait to see how it develops with wear!

    Coming along really well! How does an unlined jacket wear?

    Great outfit! Love the dark seal on this pattern.

    The Campus is great for SoCal weather. Not uncomfortable at all.

    When I ordered my custom Jacket from JL about 5 years ago they had a particularly nice heavy buffalo available that was just the shade you are looking for. I would ask them about that hide if I were you.

    Schott 141 that has had some major alterations.

    Part of this was me not understanding all the different components of a jacket. I've come to realize I'm not a big fan of the biswing back. A little bit around the arms/shoulder socket is ok, but don't like the deep cuts along the whole back line. Other part was just the typical Schott sizing for barrel shaped men. I love the 100 series naked leather so wanted to make it work. Sized down to a 40 hoping, but no cigar. Was boxy as hell and that biswing w/ the under arm gusset with all the collapsing lines felt like something out of a 1990s Janet Jackson video. Unfortunately the sleeves were also .5 to .75 short on the stock measurements, so not much to do there, but I think I accomplished a much more trim and streamlined fit with all the various lines. Wish I would've taken a before pic as always. The whole biswing line was sewn down, elastic taken out, shoulders and chest were still big enough to allow. 24 p2p and 19 3/8 shoulder on a size 40. CRAZY. And then more of a hour glass shape in the abs and hem line.

    Cost me a good $200, but I figure it's better than spending $1000 a new jacket LOL. And now I feel like I got a custom hand made jacket.

    Cold snap and rain brings the temps down into the low 70s F., and brings out my GW A-1.

    Gotta admit, saw the pics prior to reading the text and I wasn't exactly sure what jacket was it. I mean, looked like Schott but I know their CR never fits as good as this, which had me a bit confused for a moment. Then I read your post and yeah, this would explain it. Came out more than great!

    The alterations were worth it for sure I really wouldn't risk it with getting a pricier jacket 'cause this fits you as good as it gets.

    thanks, man. I know you're a Schott afficionado so I appreciate that. I love their stuff, but the sizing is crazy. Their cross zips fit me pretty good off the shelf for whatever reason, but I"ve returned like 4 other models and have now altered 2 in big way to get them just right. The journey continues.

    Was going to say, massive improvement over the typically boxy 141. Looks like a more than proper CR now. Well done!

    I would not go through this exercise again. Luckily oh man how lucky I found a competent tailor few blocks from my house. I went in for like 4 fittings. No way this could have been done via email. Well at least now I know what to look for when I buy things.

    edit: btw, I screwed up sewing down the biswing panels with a bad tailor the first time. That's why you see the extra stitch line. There's a way to fix it, but didn't want to start over again. I might go back to the better tailor to fix. He mostly focused on the waist, arm pit, and chest area and nailed that stuff. Live and learn.
