    Anyone ever take a quilted lining out of a leather jacket? I recently bought another 5-zip, but the quilted lining makes it only wearable in the winter time. Thinking about returning it if I can't have it successful altered.

    Anyone have experience?

    Certainly possible if you're willing to pay. I had the lining replaced on my Rick jacket for $300 + fabric cost by a leather jacket specialist and they did a better job than the original

    Thanks. Do you think moving from a quilted to a non-quilted lining is problem though? I suppose this depends on a case-by-case basis, but I'm somewhat worried of how the fit will change when I have the quilted lining replaced with something plain.

    I replaced the lining on a couple of jackets, got thick canvas replaced with viscose on a ncb leather for like 50 bucks, didnt change the shape much but felt just a tad more roomy and easier to get on-off which was what I was looking for, also got a viscose replaced with wool hb on one of my wife's leathers for like 100 bucks, then again I have a really good and cheap tailor so ymmv

    edit:
    whats up with that moto dww, anxious to see good pics of the eye line

    Thanks for the info.

    Still haven't received anything. I assume it's stuck in customs or something, but I haven't had time to follow up with them.

    Which one did you get? The blue one off Mr Porter? I noticed that this version had quilted lining... Strange, since it was supposed to be a S/S piece.

    Yea, the navy one. I think it's a FW release, actually. Just early arrival.

    Ok. I've not seen 5 zips with quilted linings before, even F/W versions. Is this something new? I for one prefer a leather jacket not to have any thick lining, since I much rather layer with other stuff underneath. It's more "fun" that way imo.

    No, but similar. Darker brown leather in smooth cowhide, rather than a tan, slightly distressed leather (from what I remember). Also no dangly zipper pulls. Mine's the same model, but just different materials. Made a season before that tan one you linked.

    I just had the lining on my vintage 618 replaced with a satin one to make it wearable where I live. It's a pretty easy process for my go-to guy. He just removed the lining pieces one by one, traced the shapes on satin fabric, and sewed it back on after tapering the poofy sleeves to my slim preferences. I'll post up a picture soon.

    Edited with pic.

    I just had a custom zip-out mouton liner and mouton collar made for my 80s Schott 125. The Schott custom dept is amazingly responsive and capable (though they didn't want to make me a custom liner out of glen check harris tweed, for some reason). Expecting it back in the next few weeks. Will share pics.

    Yep I had a similar request in changing the liner with a satin liner similar to their Japanese 613USS model, but they told me they wouldn't do it. Even just requesting for the liner material was met with a no. I am assuming that they have to restore their jackets to 'stock' specs to avoid people selling them as expensive 'limited editions', one-offs, samples or 'special' defects perhaps.

    Another 5 zip question. Do most people go with their regular size (tts) or do you normally size down or even up? I am mainly talking about the last couple of season's pieces.

    Cheers.
