    Correct, stiff leather such as horsehide would hold that better and the ultra soft lambsuede will leave that naturally.

    You are the lucky one having 5 A1s in your wardrobe. With a button front and stand up knitted colloar, A1 is always going well with suede for a sartorial look, compared to other flight jackets.

    A1s can be tricky for off the rack as A1s in the market tend to have a very tight waist.

    Hey Andy, I will get you with a fitting if you're looking for another leather jacket in the future [​IMG]

    I'm sure you will enjoy the pleasure of the bespoke process from the basted fitting to adjusting the perfect armhole height or bicep circumference.
    Sleeve length is rather tricky as some of our customers may prefer shorter sleeve length to show their watches. The try-on garment with the ribbed knit will show clearer pictures for the customers.

    Of course, we will review and guarantee a better shipping service for all of you guys!!

    Yes, we've called and emailed both local post office and USPS with a long conversation. Hong Kong post office had nothing much they could do but communicated with USPS for us. We definitely review our shipping service and gurantee you guys a better delivery and detailed tracking info.

    Compared to the off the rack flight jackets in the market, Craftsman focuses on the softest and smoothest lambskin, mastery of craftsmanship and high quality of trimmings. We make sure the money you spend goes to ultrafine leather and finishing rather than branding. Full bespoke and MTM service will be our extra bonus.

    Hey Harry - it's prertty hard to capture the actual color of the Polo suede by phone camera and it easily goes off.

    Photos below are accurate to acutal color of the Polo suede. And yes, Polo Suede needs to reach a MOQ of 4 jackets with 50usd surcharge due to its availability.
    Thanks for the shout outs, Winston.

    Our customer picked up his olive green Nathan G-1 jacket. You can definitely tell that green in indeed his favorite color.
    Look at that stunning green gator watch strap on the Grand Seiko!

    One of our customers chose something other than his name to be put as the embroidery on the lining,

    "Des Caritas Est" means "God is Love". We would love to see more of this!

    It's your jacket, so please take the chance and choose something unique and meaningful to you, and have fun!

    There are some teaser pics of the back view, and the chest, of their upcoming safari, on their IG account. Just look for Craftsman Clothing.
    I'm sure they will be uploading some good full frontal views soon.

    Hemingway: "Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another." - Ernest Hemingway
    He was a Nobel-Prized winning writer and an adventurer. His writing has a strong influence in 20th century fiction. Shortly after his famous novel - The Old Man And The Sea, he then went on safari to South Africa. It's the reason why most of his photographs are seen in a safari jacket. Our product is named after him as a tribute.

    • Buttery soft Lambsuede
    • Bemberg lining and genuine horn buttons
    • Hidden button placket with four bellowed pockets
    • Inverted back pleat and half belt with side buttons closure
    • Barrel cuffs
    Suede: Navy / Midnight Blue / Snuff / Chocolate Brown / Elephant Brown / Olive Green = 850USD

    The Hemingway is astonishingly beautiful. I love how you guys engender a sense of exploration, romance, and historicism into your work. Really adds a special touch to your pieces.

    I'm probably getting ahead of myself here, but would Craftsman Clothing consider doing waxed hunting jackets one day? I'm basically thinking of Barbour's waxed hunting jackets (especially the Bedale SL), but my issue with them is their cuts are very large... it can be like wearing a tent almost.
