I have a feeling we'll be saying that about the B-6 as well in a month or so...
They're really exciting times. Over the last decade or so we've watched prices on accurate repro flight jackets go through the roof to the point where a lot of guys, enthusiastic as they may be, have had to say "I can't afford this". Suddenly though we have a company which wants to make accurate jackets and priced like they were back in the early 00s. Not only that but Shawn has demonstrated a willingness to improve more than any other maker I have seen. He reacts almost immediately to feedback, no defensive posturing or bullshit, somebody says "that's wrong" and he automatically asks how to make it better.If the actual jacket that is received matches the photos, it’s going to be a fairly significant entry into the repro fleece market, at a fairly significant price reduction . Based on other 5 Star repros we seen , I have full faith in Shawn that it will match his photos.
I only have one shearling jacket Scott, an ELC Irvin which I ordered one size above my usual chest size and an extra long sizing.I'm with you @Smithy 100%!!!
This is why I am willing to do it without ever having bought a sheerling jacket before.
In fact, I would love some tips on comparing fit numbers on such a jacket with a "regular" leather jacket. I sent my info to Shawn, but I honestly say I feel some anxiety since I don't know how to compensate for this thicker stuff.
I'm sure he knows how, but you guys with more experience in the sheerling jackets probably can offer up some tips?
Wow that looks fantastic and makes me think an affordable c3 vest is in my futureHi Dear VLJ Friends
I studied all of your great inputs, feedback and all the details carefully, I am also aware about the thickness of the D1 and B3, But some buyers who buy the D1 they were more interested in The Bigger hairs so I made this accordingly, But I have the right small Hairs Fleece for the D1's as well, Now Its the buyers wish with what Hair Length they want to proceed, Below is the comparison of our both fleece hair lengths and both are in stock

These Skin's have almost half hair's length than the thicker fleece, now its totally depends on buyers which thickness they prefers as we can make this in either in thicker fleece or Thinner Fleece.
