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?
Absolutely on the 98%. What Shawn has accomplished is utterly remarkable. To think of what we paid for Avirex and W&G jackets 35 years ago--these are far more accurate and in many cases less expensive.Congrats to Shawn and his team. This is pretty darn close, just a few tweaks. As we notice those few needed details, let's not forget the 98% they got right.
I’m sure some here will call this blasphemy, but I prefer steer hide to horse hide.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!
