Come on, who cares? If the jacket looks awesome, that's all that matters. No other argument is needed.

nah I want the Roberts, that jacket looks cool but I don’t think it’s for me
Nah, I (obviously) don't think the point is arbitrary but I do agree, hide is the 2nd most important variable after fit... But the choice and positioning of hardware are what define the look.I'm saying that your argument picks an arbitrary and unreasonable point to decide that something is too similar, especially given that both companies are aimed at making reproductions. The biggest difference, ironically is that they used different leather hides and different dying techniques. You'd think the difference in actual leather hides and processing would be one of they key differences to look at
The Horse I ride has his own whole fell: strip him of the girths and flaps and extraneous tags I have fastened round him, and the noble creature is his own sempster and weaver and spinner; nay his own boot-maker, jeweller, and man-milliner; he bounds free through the valleys, with a perennial rain-proof court-suit on his body; wherein warmth and easiness of fit have reached perfection; nay, the graces also have been considered, and frills and fringes, with gay variety of color, featly appended, and ever in the right place, are not wanting. While I—good Heaven!—have thatched myself over with the dead fleeces of sheep, the bark of vegetables, the entrails of worms, the hides of oxen or seals, the felt of furred beasts; and walk abroad a moving Rag-screen, overheaped with shreds and tatters raked from the Charnel-house of Nature, where they would have rotted, to rot on me more slowly! Day after day, I must thatch myself anew; day after day, this despicable thatch must lose some film of its thickness; some film of it, frayed away by tear and wear, must be brushed off into the Ashpit, into the Laystall; till by degrees the whole has been brushed thither, and I, the dust-making, patent Rat-grinder, get new material to grind down. O subter-brutish! vile! most vile! For have not I too a compact all-enclosing Skin, whiter or dingier? Am I a botched mass of tailors' and cobblers' shreds, then; or a tightly articulated, homogeneous little Figure, automatic, nay alive?Human skin is the original "leather" and everyone putting a different leather over their natural leather is a poseur
I mean this sincerely: stupid arguments are the best feature of this thread. Literally don't care about leather jackets; only here for stupid arguments.
That seem so silly until I realize I commented about a reviewer who doesn't check his backgrounds in photos.TIL we've been wasting so much time over here ruminating about pocket placements while the guys over at FDL have been busting out the freon and fish scales to weigh all their jackets.
