It was an awesome jacket all around, but my wife hated how it looked (too short in the body and arms, which I sort of agreed with), so I sold it.
But it was great... leather was sturdy, stitching was excellent, details (authenticity, if you care about that - I do not) were spot on. Dealing with John was excellent... I imagine he may have someone answering his e-mails now, but regardless he runs a very tight ship. When I purchased the jacket he did everything himself, from sourcing and buying the leather to making the patterns, to cutting and sewing, etc. etc. The only thing I wish were different were slimmer sleeves.
