Here are the promised pictures This jacket is real head turner! was impressed with 5 stars services.
Awesome craftman ship this jacket is very comfortable and love the bulky look! The straps, buckles, and reinforcement panels are just fantastic.
The leather is very supple the fleece is fantastic so fluffy very close to the original colour just asked shawn to add a second loop on the collar like on my original B3 was kindly done .He is very helpfull and provide very good advices for the right fitting and sizing. Choosen a 46 size and its roomy enough to move my body... despite the longer sleeves 69 cm instead of64 cm( got short arms) jacket will be worn with the bottom of the sleeves rolled up..
Tracking was easy and delivery was fast only 10 days since ordering! With a little bit of wear and aging this jacket will look fine . Higly recommanded such a jacket for the reenactment people.
Can you post some close up pics of this beauty?

@Shawn Ali and his staff have really knocked it the out of the park
On the what you get for your dollar value game
Your right jacket for the right price and not needing to break the bank is exactly what I’m thinking

I like the jacket very much but the (collar press) studs on the jacket are a bit poorly set.(see second pic in post 404). The used type is not correct to the US style studs. More correct military type of press studs whether metal or brass are easy obtainable and should be an easy upgrade. Just a minor detail

The B-3 is one jacket where the collar should never be done up....

The Horsehide leather facing are nicei the seal brown contrasting colour of the jacket too. Been asked where does this jacket came from ! and SHAWN services are 1st class.

It looks like it would handle the current temps I’ve had here in Alberta with
Ease, it is currently -21c as I get ready to head out to the dentist for a cleaning

A look of work has gone into this and it looks great!

Is the coloring on the red fleece panels solid/even color like the seal fleece panels?

My understanding the the earlier finish on these were more aniline, hand finish look.
That’s a good detail to notice, but ultimately I don’t think the cost of doing that would be worth the effort. It would likely cost more (maybe a lot more?) to hand-apply the coat, and frankly, on my Eastman B-3 it’s a very subtle effect. I think this jacket looks beautiful, and I’m sure I’ll buying one in the future.
