Right, I loved my specced up LC from a little while ago, and I think it looked pretty good in pics, but I fell into the trap of trying to follow SA length and ended up speccing it too darn short. This presented itself in pockets so high up on the jacket that if I managed to shoehorn my hands in them I was stuck there!

So, I had another go, using this jacket as the sizing guide, I added an inch here, trimmed 1/2 an inch there and here is the result. Very Very pleased... even more so after giving it the 'TC treatment'.

Thanks Pete, that's the LC well and truly crossed of the list along with the ToD and Hero.

Darn... need to start looking at other movies!

That looks great!!
I see they even used the correct seam for the back of the arm without the over stitching (a small detail that has been overlooked on almost every replica I've ever seen).
And that collar is pure perfection!

What hide is that?

Let's see it on you KT.

It's flippin hard taking a pic in the mirror at night with an iPhone! I currently don't have a camera with a self timer!

Any way here goes!

Kwad... it's a antiqued cowhide - a thin cow, Wested calls it 'lambtouch', though it's got a bit more body to it than lamb TBH!

A) Acetone
B) Wirebrush and pen knife
C) Bricks
D) None of the above

:)

You'll notice it doesn't have that scratchy sandpaper effect that a lot of distressing has.

Really nice, KT! One of the best jobs, pattern-wise, for a LC that I've seen from Wested. Nice job on the distressing as well!

I like the fit on you. From what I can tell you nailed it. I'm also digging the look of the leather. I can't decide from the angle of the photos if the end of the sleeves look a little bellowy or not. They look pretty good in the second pic.

Thanks, fit is great and the sleeves fit perfectly too. The first jackets ones were slightly too fitted so I added a tiny amount to the cuff width.
