Alternately, kidnap him to get 3 for 1 deals for life.

Just throwing it out there.

I can totally understand why some of the sewers are unwilling to work with the heavier hides.

I just started sewing back together a rip in my faux-leather vinyl motorcycle seat and its a huge pain. I really should be measuring out these stitches and opening the holes with a small awl first because pushing the needle through is a bitch (sometimes I gotta use pliers). Good thing this doesn't have to look pretty (since it will be covered with taping to keep the water out)...

well, the machines for making the jackets are a good deal stronger and the needles are really sharp, so getting through the lamb is like butter, and the calf and horse is a bit harder - but the real reason they don't like working with that stuff is because of what happens when you turn the seams back and then stitch back over - the seams gotta reverse back out and lay flat, which the stiffer stuff doesn't do. That is the hard part. That, and the people making them are obviously trying to make something that looks nice and shows their work off, and they dislike the way the shoulders are stiff when the jackets are boxfresh. That's why they love the lamb, always able to turn out nice product that way and people stay happy.

Would be amazing to see them all together, Drew if there's a few orders for the same style of jacket, do they get done in a batch?

I'm not drew, but I've been following the thread enough to be comfortable saying that yes is the correct answer.

Such a nice looking jacket. The suede is something else, and all the details like the hidden placket or the snap button sleeves make this probably one of of the more interestingly put together TOJs... But I think it's too small for me. I just went with a stock 44, which normally would be fine, but I didn't account for the lack of shoulder gussets. It's pretty slim on me, and really hard for me to move or feel comfortable in, unlike a similarly sized lamb jacket. Hopefully someone on here will get to enjoy it.

That jacket is sick, if it wasn't so tiny I'd have it!

post #20879 of 45038
that jacket is awesome. would be amazing in brown suede.
post #20880 of 45038
So here's a fit pic. I think it actually looks good, but I could have made it a little bigger for comfort, even with the slightly larger chest(which I guess accounts for the lack of gussets). Not a fan of how it drapes unbuttoned though.

I also agree with Mikey. This would be phenomenal in brown and would probably age as nice as a brown A2.
