That's nice man, I like how slim the sleeves are and how they don't puff out larger than the cuffs (if that makes any sense), same with the bottom hem. Possible to get this type of fit with the a2 bomber or are the body and sleeves inherently more billowy?
no. All peacoats look the same this year, but we added a working cuff with a one button closure. It's clean and inconspicuous, can't even see that from the front view. I've always hated the wrist straps, they don't match the style of the rest of the jacket. They were a customer add-on and then more people added them on.
DR guys make the coats. They can make anything. The Bomber guy works cleaner, more precise, but the DR guy is a true artist and has his own set 'style' that I combine with my designs, and we make good things. Sampling with him doesn't even take more than one or two tries, we've got a very locked-in design relationship.
