    Gents,

    I have just finished the pattern grading for my newest pattern from John. That being the Bronco 29191 contract.

    For the first jacket, I decided to HWT the leather FIRST instead of shrinking it afterward. Then cut out and assemble
    the jacket. Reproduction Talon zipper with original slider and pull tab.

    Size 44

    Pit to pit front 24
    Pit to pit back 24
    Sleeve 27
    Shoulder 19
    Back 26
    Front 23

    Verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry nice. If I didn't already have a GW Bronco in goat I would be sorely tempted. (I'm tempted as it is.)

    I think that is your best A-2 yet Dave... Is this for a customer? Well, a customer waiting for said jacket?

    Not yet. I have not found a cowhide that is stable enough in color to handle it. But Shinki HH could work with the method very well, it really works better with semi-aniline leathers as opposed to aniline. Mostly because the latter darkens in a variable way.

    Gents,

    The 44 is now spoken for and winging its way to Oz.

    46 is still available for purchase, as of now.

    The 46 looks great and I always wanted a Bronco, sleeves are long enough but it says It's for a slim guy even though the pit to pit seems wide. Just trying to figure how slim I need to be. Love the Bronco pockets too. Is this jacket preshrunk also?
