Cross post from the JL thread and I didn't really wear it (quick fit pics in the morning before I went hiking) but feel like it's best to share their lovely work on this thread where there's more traffic. Lighting is not the best when I took the photos but I'll take better (or rather I'll atleast try to) photos when it's a little cooler.

JL's take on the French Cyclist/German flyer jacket. Leather is made from Seal(dark brown) Horween Vermont and has a detachable cream mouton collar with button securement.

I hope you can see the fine grains and striations in the close up. It's really lovely leather

This is a seriously good page.
Perfect fit and great leather on the new jacket from @Jin431 (may I suggest breaking in that collar a little bit?)

Thanks @dudewuttheheck, I saw your Bodie and that looks so good! It will eventually get the hot water treatment so I can shape it better and fold down the part where the inside of the collar and end of the zipper meet.

Great jacket from @thor with a beautiful B-29 in the background

and a beautiful Field Leathers jacket from @JCSD (love your photos btw, what camera/lenses do you use?)
Appreciate that. I shoot with a Canon 5D Mk IV and usually with a 50mm Sigma Art lens.

Thanks! Awesome I think the jacket will look just about perfect after that.

Very nice. I have a Sigma DG DN 85 1.4 and really love it.

Finished another one. One imperfection at the final step, so livid. But the material is pretty good, Italian horse, tweed lining, inside pocket, NOS US made YKK with cotton tape, US made wool knits.
