a relatively thin frame is good but most important imho is broad shoulders and a long~ish torso

I think i might oil the leather to make it more buttery and add some shine. I'm guessing Obenaufs would do the trick?
Swapping the lining on a jacket is pretty easy, the harder part is the construction of the new lining itself, I've done it a couple times, ideally you'd want to take existing lining out first, then replicate the panels with the new material before sewing the new lining back in, trick is to get it done for a decent price, and for oiling leather I mainly use mink oil
