• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

U.S. Authentic also does beautiful, accurate jacket repair-

The work I had done was on A-2 jackets but I have a G-1 by US Authentic. As you know the G-1 used "rib rack" cuffs and waistbands whereas the knitted direction alternates, I will take pictures of both and post.
Post some pics of the jackets/work done.
The first 2 are US Authentic rib rack from a few yrs ago and the last pic is cuffs and sleeves shortened a few weeks ago

OK- The first 3 are rib rack on a US Authentic jacket that is from a few years ago and the last picture is new cuffs and sleeves shortened from a few weeks ago-I also had the lining and waistband changed and the work is immaculate.

A few observations. In picture #1 the cuff knit appears to be sewn together (As in not 1 piece knits). This jacket you mentioned was from a few years ago so maybe they have upgraded since then? Are they 100% wool? You may want to send along your own knits if they are not up to specs.

On the waist knit replacement, looks like they missed the top stitch line and installed it like an A-2 knit. There should be a line of stitching about 1/4" up from the knit like the cuffs.

I would get these details straight with them before having the work done.
