more goatskin

a few months ago, our own steve sellers made this button up for me, based on late 1920s- early 30s civy jackets. it is made of what i call "megamorph" goatskin. steve did a seriously kickass job in and out. between steve and, we decided to go with a simple center back pleat, and back of the upper arm pleats. this set up facilitates nice and easy vertical, and lateral arm movement. i wanted the lapels set up as seen in early 20th century jackets, and steve nailed it. details and the devil: check out the double butted french seams, od thread for the stitching [makes a nice contrast to the caramel hide color], original early 1930 casein buttons, an original early ''30s talon art deco chest zipper, vintage side buckles. as you will see in the fit pix, the jacket fits like a glove, as it should since steve very meticulous about the measurements. so many thanx to steve for making this remarkable jacket for me, and i would also like to thank dave for the monarch label. i wanted to add m ore pix, but rules is rules, ie: only 10 to a customer. enjoy the pix.

"back of the upper arm pleats"

Never seen these before, interesting. Learn something new every day.

Congrats on a beautiful bespoke piece. About how much time from placing the order til receipt in your hand?

depending on steves work load, 4-7 weeks would be my guess. he is after all a one man operation, and everything ha makes is bespoke. that said, its best to ask him what his turn around is.

Very intetesting jacket, I especially like some unique details like armpit sewn-folded gussets/pleats and unusual zipper pull on the chest poctket zipper.
