I’m not super happy with the how high the vest portion sits, how much of the arm shoulder bells aren’t showing and how long the sleeves are…so I started tearing it apart this morning.
1. Cut out one bead around the wrists in order to move the wrist collars up= 100% better, more comfortable easier to put on gloves. Still need to be glued back on for good though.
2. Removed the neck collar and pulled apart the shoulders on the back side of the vest, cut them 1/2inch shorter and folded the arm ends inward a 1/2inch and re-sewed them into place= 100% better fit, sits on my actual shoulders instead of in the air and the ends are now open enough to see the bells that I worked so darn hard on so people can now see my hard work lol.

3. Collar is now the wrong size/needs to be completely remade. I will post follow up pics once I have that complete.

Also finished off the gloves with the impact pads. Tried to see if they came off a pair of welding impact gloves but no luck. The kobalt brand found at Lowe’s was pretty close but not enough.
So I drew out some dimensions and a plan on how to tackle them.

Used 4mm for the larger pieces and 2mm for the thin middle section and to cover the top of the knuckle section.

Used puff paint for the lines on the thin bits and painted everything over with angelus black leather paint. In hindsight I wish I found something like a very dark flat grey to look more like rubber.

Glued on piece by piece with contact cement. If you do this while wearing the gloves wear tight rubber gloves under as the glue goes through the fabric quite a bit.

Mostly done fixing the jacket. Completely remade the collar and it’s so much better. When I try it on even know I can see my neck again.

I’ll can this next pic the Before, and hopefully some time tonight after work I’ll finish the collar and post an After.

I’m much happier now, not sure how visible it is but everything bits so much better around the shoulders and collar.
Now back to the pack.
