Good for you Thomas! Wear it in the rain and you may be pleasantly surprised how it develops...
Much like the progression of John Chapman who’s earliest efforts were average. Something to be expected of course but when i dared say it at the time, i got mullered !I'm really looking forward to seeing the fit pics Thomas.
It's quite remarkable the improvements that Shawn has made in the year or so since he first posted here. Comparing those first examples to what he's making now, he's really making progress.
Yes but when you get to Alabama you’ll have a nice warm N-3B Parka waiting for you there to keep you warm and toasty in the 95 degree heat wave we’re having right nowJust got a notice the jacket passed customs so should arrive at my house by Monday - unfortunately i will be on the way to Alabama on Monday and not be back before Friday
Another week of biting fingernails and inpatient waiting
Yeeeeesh ...Yes but when you get to Alabama you’ll have a nice warm N-3B Parka waiting for you there to keep you warm and toasty in the 95 degree heat wave we’re having right now
Have a fun and safe trip over here
You are right Smithy, the collar is a bit on the short side and could be longer ... - should mention that to Shawn when ordering ...Not bad at all Thomas. It'll loosen up with wear obviously so just wear it.
One thing I'd do a bit of work with is that collar, maybe some HWT but it looks like it needs a bit of beating into submission. I'm probably biased though as I tend to like A-2s and A-2 patterns which have a bigger and/or longer collar than that.
For the money though a damn good beater. Let's see the missus' one too!
Well said that man. Naysayers just have to naysay.Sean, i’d not blame you for never coming back on here. People insult you, goad you and no guarantee their behavior is anything more than academic interest and browbeating with no intent to ever buy.
Good luck with your venture. You have more balls than certain “warriors” on here & it’s hardly life and death is it ?!
And if they don’t like your wares, let them buy a Cooper !
