Except they’re not the exclusive distributor. Other companies sell FCL, like Franklin & Poe, Rivet & Hide, The Shop Vancouver, Butterscotch, etc. they’re all charging similar prices.The markup is partially due to them being the exclusive distributor for fcl so they can protect their margins.
I thought about that one a lot. It looks like a slimmer fit than a lot of the other models. Not that you want a slim Shearling but the blockiness of a lot of these brands actually hurts them as winter jackets in my case as it lets cold air up into the jacket from below. If they had that model with a hood in brown they would have had me.
However, the model wearing it doens't do the jacket any good i think. It looks too large for him
When you suck it in for the weightwatchers before/afterI'm on vacation so I took my new shearling to a local chain leather shop, Tandy Leather, who I think are a decently big leather supply chain. The staff there was ultra helpful and were totally on board with my idea to put some cinch straps on the waist of my jacket. I spent $80 on tools and with absolutely zero leather working skill I made a couple straps and riveted them on. I screwed up the insertion on the back end so one is lower on the reverse but it really gets the job done. I'll head back there when I have another day off and see what I can do to clean up the edges and see how easy it is to pop off the rivets and re-align the strap on the back. The rivet holes I punched are extremely small so the damage to the jacket would be completely undetectable even if you were looking for the holes. An interesting experience, all in all. Definitely helps that it wasn't a $5000 jacket or something crazy.
