Oh, well, if we are going to go full nerd, let's at least do this right. I think that "The Stick" will be both descriptive of the jacket, and appeal to comic book nerds, alike. I also feel that. I think that the beefier version of the jacket should be named "The Bushwacker", The really big version of the jacket should obviously be "The Kingpin."
Re, fits - I would allow Thurston to make the adjustments, guys. They had the actual sample, and have experience adjusting leather patterns. I think that we have given pretty good ideas on what we'd like the jacket to look like worn, both verbally and through pictures. ime, unless you are pretty experienced with pattern making/adjusting, micromanaging at the level of "it should be slimmer by 1" as opposed to "I'd like the jacket to be slimmer through the shoulders", especially remotely over the net, is generally an ill-advised idea.
International fit jacket - imo, completely worth the additional cost. It's $60 to ensure a jacket that actually fits you (you would pay the duties regardless). I am in the States, but I would definitely not skimp on the extra money to get things dialed in.
