    Is there a pic of what the back of the proposed jacket looks like?

    I think we ended up with a yoke, split back and modest kidney panel. Like so (side adjusters optional) ...

    Oh, man. I really dislike that yoke. Everything else seems good. Wasn't the original version a single-panel back with a permanent belt attached to it?

    Also this is just an OCD thing but does anyone else think the chest pocket would look cool if it was positioned in line withh the right hand pocket? So the two pockets line up in a straight line?

    There are actually several variations of the EyE jacket. Me, I like the yoke, and I think that it works best of most people. It defines the shoulders well, which is something that, skinny or thicker, pretty much every guy wants, Part of what makes jackets attractive on models is that the have wide, fairly angular shoulders. compared to the rest of their body. For most pther people - we can use the help that we can get.

    Noice. Thst'd not a split back though. Something like the ToJ that i have, with a seam down the spine, is.

    here are two of the Junya backs. I think the split back was used on a moto and the "trucker" back was on a double rider.
