    Aug 9, 2010, 1:37 AM - Hunter S. Thompson Jacket #1

    so i want to make a Hunter S. Thompson jacket like the one from fear and loathing
    its a replication of one actually worn by Hunter

    the one i have been using has worked out pretty well, it has the right frump to it and size but i have always wanted to make this one
    heres a few shots of reference





    the first two are of Hunters jacket, the others are of the replication made for Johnny

    so far only two people make this jacket
    Cosplaysky, which is affordable but lacks lots of detail
    and IndyMagnoli, which is almost perfect but costs a small fortune

    but what im looking for is a pattern, something that matches the style so i can modify it

    so far my Girlfriend was able to find this KWIK SEW Pattern 3123

    which is pretty damn close, so ill probably use that if i cant find anything better

    so yeah, any help Pattern wise would be amazing, thanks alot ^^

    I'm wondering if you would be better off searching through shirt patterns, and then adding a lining for the added bulk?

    The pattern you linked is missing a lot of the basic structural details, like the gussets. Plus it has extra panels. I tried finding something better online, but there was a serious lack of back pictures.

    Since I practically live at Joann's, I'll keep an eye out for you

    yeah i know, but things like Extra Panels are easy to get rid of
    im pretty good with modifying patterns when i know how to do something

    but its the Gusset im really looking for
    i have no idea how to do that otherwise id just add it myself.

    Bought a piece of history today! Found the same vintage brand/make shirt Hunter S Thompson wore at the 1972 Democratic Convention when McGovern was running against Nixon while Hunter was writing his book Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail. Bat Country Camo
