Sheeley Gearing Up For M-422 Jacket

Having just received one of Dave's Sheeley-made jackets today, let me just say that this jacket is the single best jacket I've owned on every dimension (fit, leather, mutton, zipper, etc.). The 12 months in between was completely worth the wait. I'd even wait 24 months or 36 months for it. I tried the jacket quickly on and it fits so comfortably well that I didn't want to take it off at all (this never happened with any other jacket I own).

I'm travelling tomorrow and won't be able to share any photos for the next few weeks, but you can already see from Dave's photos how well-made this beautiful M422 is. Dave's craftsmanship and his sourcing of the materials make the jacket worth every penny you'd put in.

What an amazing experience. Dave is such a great USN jacket artist. Thank you, Dave!

@stanier Hi Chris! Dave and I worked on a custom sizing so that the jacket fits me well. If I'm not wrong, almost everything is the same as a standard size 40 from Dave's original except for the sleeves, which are tailored to my arm length. I'm sure an ANJ-3A with Dave will be great (isn't there a review already?)!
