Does Shawn have a selection of these? I really dislike the current buttons I have that are all loosey goosey
I bought mine (plus the tool to apply them) from a Japanese seller on Etsy, Citron Jeans. I read the horror stories about Shawn's buttons and put in very specific instructions to not include them on my jacket.

I got some of those that I added to high waisted jeans as suspender buttons.
Is it really as easy as "place tool on button, smack with hammer"? I can't seem to find any instructions online.

How do you call this style of jackets? I kind of like it, save for the belt.
30's style "sport" or motorcycle jacket, specifically from brands calling this a "California" style.

The belt makes it a bit of a half-belt, which was a Sears Roebuck make under the name Hercules, although there were others. I think "Californian" was another brand, possibly made for Sears as well. The Freewheelers Mulholland is based on a Trojan Leathers jacket.
Looks like they were made well past the 30s.

The Mariana is closest to that 40s one.

So is it the general consensus of the board that the James Grose suede shearling is indeed cooler than the nappa shearling? I'm rethinking an order I wanna place.

And I should size up all the way to 44, huh? Remember, this is me in a 40. I agree I should size up, but by how many is tbd.

It really depends on what you're planning to wear. I have no idea how people seem to layer hoodies and knitwear under shearling leather jackets. Anything more than a tee seems like absolute hell to me.

I mean I get it in the context of the Arctic where the fur coat is the outer layer… but yeah that’s not most of us.

I live in Canada. Not close to the border but not in the actual (mostly inoccupied) North either. 48th parallel.

A shearling and a tee will be enough until December but in the coldest months of our 6-month-long winter you’re gonna want that knit. Probably more.

I realize that’s the exception and not the rule.
