What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

Ah, spring in England! New life is bursting forth under the ever warming sun aided by the occasional light shower of warm rain. Gentle breezes stir the young leaves and blossom on the fruit trees...
Damn, I must have been dreaming! It's bloody cold, bloody wet and too bloody windy!!

ELC B-3 & A10 gloves and other winter warmers time again. Young Willow was not impressed but hunting up a pheasant or two cheered her up a bit. We were in a sheltered spot for the photo.
BTW I am not a professional dog walker, all the dogs in my photos are ours.

Sporting a GW Acme 21996 on a rainy cold day. This is an A2 that is a russet with a light seal colored top coat. When the jacket has a lot of wear the Russett will bleed through the top coat giving it a pretty cool appearance . Once again JC is a wizard . I posted a couple of photos in difference lights so you can see how the color of the jacket changes with the change in natural and interior lights .
Cheers

What a stunning jackets that is, Burt. And it fits like a glove to boot. What is it about John Chapman's jackets that they always look like pieces of art?
I’ve asked myself that same question many times Lorenzol . I think it just comes down to a personal bar or level of artistry or craftsmanship that JC sets for himself . That and a desire to give his customers the best that he can offer . On a side note, you cant help but like the guy after you’ve talked to him on the phone he’s just that personable . I know some may think that I’m saying this to suck up but I’m really not . I haven’t bought a jacket off of John in a few years now and no plans to by one . I just think highly of the guy and business ethics .

His jacket are no doubt and stunning to look at, at least in photographs (Ive never seen one in the flesh). Re Mr Chapman, I have tried contacting him in numerous occasions without success. I have all but given up now.

sorry no leather as I’m in the car and at
+9 c and cloudy with the odd spritz of rain
It’s actually a little warm ( for me at least ) for leather so we’re
in a carhartt denim jacket and leather hat
And new mask I sewed up from some material ( old pillowcase ) I found at a thrift store
Gotta fly my sci fi geek flag

He still watches the forum -- don't give up, he's just pretty busy.
He does and he knows what's going on. He sent me a PM out of the blue a year or two back about some stuff. And I agree people forget he's a one man band. So he spends most of his time making these amazing jackets which probably doesn't leave a whole lot of time for his personal life let alone answering emails, etc. I'd keep persisting Lorenzo. Not a perfect world but he'll eventually get around to you.
