Ok, finally waking up and smelling the coffee. I think it's time to accept that, yes, maybe the Fine Creek Roberts jacket might be just a tad too small for me.

Everyone here was right. I was wrong. I am humble in defeat and the jacket shall be bequeathed to a new, more worthy owner.

Goodnight sweet prince.

@Understatesman in that Neighborhood collab after all of the jackets he's stolen from appreciative homes.

Nah, that kind of behavior demands a Simmons Bilt.

(The brand was founded on the back of stealing £200k+ of Aero’s property, then it came out in the trial that they stole the patterns as well… to the point that some of their jackets have certain mistakes in them that Aero fixed in between then and now— a real “copy the mistakes on the test next to you” situation. 😂 The main guy went to prison but there are something like eight key employees there still who were deeply involved in the theft and fraud.)

That jacket is a cursed object and should be delivered to the Warrens for safe keeping alongside Annabelle.

I think the TOJ was the best fit for you. Not that everything has to be flattering, but that jacket was the most flattering of all the jackets you've posted.

Tried looking up in this thread if the mystery of the distinction between "Fine Creek Leathers" and "Fine Creek & Co" was ever solved...no dice.
That said, to add more to the mystery - one FC retailer told me that the different labels are lined up with the era/style that the jacket is replicating (i.e. 50's vs 60's, American vs British inspired, etc), and another FC retailer told me Fine Creek & Co is their "price point" label...he wanted to say lower tier, but didn't know how else to describe it, because it is still very high quality. This same retailer also mentioned that FC is phasing out "Fine Creek Leathers" as the specific leather used for those jackets primarily is decreasing in quantity (not quality, QUANTITY), and "Fine Creek & Co" will take over.

Take this with a grain of salt, because clearly everyone is on a different page.

According to the guys at FCL (met them at the Self Edge trunk show 2 years ago), Fine Creek Leathers is strictly horsehide jackets made in-house by the brand. There are only three or four employees in the company who make jackets with this label on it. With this line, they try to replicate a vintage style as accurately as possible. In one example they showed me, a jacket had triple stitch details on the back. They said they couldn't apply that method in one go as they didn't have the tools necessary so they would first stitch the jacket with a double-needle, then once more with a single needle.

Fine Creek & Co is made by a separate manufacturer. This label consists of jackets that aren't restricted to horse hide and historically accurate vintage styles. They have also used lambskin, deerskin etc in the past.

Not just yet. I want to see how the ones I have coming in compare. If measurements are anything to go by, they should all be slightly bigger, yet some shorter in the body (which could be a concern, I'm starting to think).

To the back of my closet it goes.
