man, that wrist knit looks a lot longer than 3".
We've drawn up an "ideal body length chart" based on an estimation of Hap Arnold's height, would appear to be no less than 6'1" based on Mary Pickford's height which is well documented. This will ensure all 25 look "right" on the person who ordered it.THAT I can agree on... What do you think Ken?
.................and some!!!!!!!"Never before, in the field of repro jackets, has so much been written by so many about so little"
Yes and with us laying all the groundwork, it will be a lot easier to make. I wonder what they will "copy" and what features may be different, their own take..................and some!!!!!!!
I sometimes wonder what on earth made me say "Aero are up for making a repro" in the first place, I should be working on next years knitwear range not putting so much energy into what is basically a 25 piece order. :>)
It's a service industry but someone's got to do it..............wait I forgot there are two more at least on the case :>)
Us being you and me Ken, with the help of the community. Remember the big thread?Please define "Us" and "They"
Sir............Thank you bringing common sense into the collar issue and for putting what is known in Scotland as "The bleeding obvious" into seven simple words .
And in every photo the jacket neck is wide open and, as you've probably discovered, the collarstand isn't just deeper, it's also longer making the neck opening larger than later jackets, hence the accentuated "Saturday Night Fever" neckline.Only trouble with the angle and small size theories is that the collar appears bigger in every photo, not just in one photo. Also how can you say it is not bigger when there are jackets right next to it zipped up in a similar way, and still it appears bigger?

dinna fash yersel, as we say in these parts............... Otter may offer a translation...........we are on the caseI am sure it will look great when produced whatever size.
Just make sure it’s not that RW clown collar look
I doubt if a 19" collar on a 14" neck or vica versa is going to work out quite as the pattern cutter intended, I've heard that anomoly quoted before to explain a badly finished neckline on a replica jacketcollars tended to remain the same size, regardless of size of jacket.
