Hey, no worries. I think we all go through the customisation craze.Thank you for taking the time to write me a well thought out and informative reply. I don’t take offense, you did not come off as rude. I agree with you. At first I felt like I knew exactly what I wanted...then i went down the rabbit hole of the Internet reading every post I could find here, TFL, etc... and my ADD/OCD kicked in and I have been all over the place second guessing my decisions.
so starting with the liner, I like the look of yours as well. So this is the seal brown polyester (#1) on Shawns website? Interesting, on the website it looks almost black.(As you mentioned) this is helpful as I think this is what I am going for.
I believe I went with Seal Brown Satin; not sure if that's the same as SB polyester.
In all honesty, the hardest part about a fully made to measure and made to order jacket is exercising restraint.
Yes, every individual option may be beautiful in and of themselves; but (at the end of the day) they've all got to work together in harmony.
And its the ability to exercise a little restraint and being a little more conservative with your choices which, I think, will help greatly in making a jacket which works as a whole. All being said and done, its difficult to exercise restraint when you have a carte blanche and can choose whichever crazy options you want on your jacket.
