Nice work! I agree with Brett: pocket flaps need to be more scalloped and the collars pointier.
I’m not a huge fan of the color either - does it have a purplish hue?

I’m with you guys, especially regarding the pocket flaps.

On the purple hue thing, I THINK that’s just Shawn’s camera. It’s come up a number of times that his jackets look really purplish when he photographs them, but that isn’t how they look. It’s pretty weird though seeing a dark seal Star.

Love the jacket and the Star is my favorite contact, but why the obvious "errors" on thing like the unpainted under arm vents? The Poughkeepsie has painted vents, why not the Star since the original has them? Why silver snaps in the pockets (may be glare)?

Iron out a few of these minor issues and I am a buyer.

IMO, the only thing really left for Shawn is to come up with some really period looking cowhide that has a vintage look. I am saying cow in hopes that an inexpensive hide with some character could be found and used that is within his amazing price point. I don't think its possible with horse (being INexpensive). He did get the goat right with the Dubow hide. I know, there are those final small details but he's really about there!

Agreed - Shawn has mentioned in the past that a lot of his hides come from animals that were slaughtered for Eid. So probably lots of goats, lambs, and some cows. Horses are probably harder to come by. I think if he could make a good batch of cowhide that resembles the leather on the originals he's acquired, that would be a good, cost-effective leather.

I’m sure some here will call this blasphemy, but I prefer steer hide to horse hide.
