Dude that looks freaking awesome! Congrats! Very happy for you and also feel a sense of pride. We did it man! Haha yes you can blame me and M for sure. What shearling did you use btw?Well, my pockets are now significantly lighter (don't ask how much, and don't tell my family) and my spirits immensely higher. I'd like to take a moment to thank/blame everyone in this thread, but especially Shahrooz and Mechanismo . Here's my Soul Revolver coat. This was done by lamoda custom tailor over in Kew Gardens in New York.
A few notes:
-Piping was added around the lapels, top collar edges and shoulders
-shoulder padding was added
-the collar was shifted
-all the shearling was replaced using the uniqlo coat recommended earlier in the thread
-magnet enclosures were added using the same stock magnets SR used for their collar. An additional one was added on the bottom of the collar to help it clip into place
-I still need to distress/blackwash the shearling, as well as comb it. That will happen, just a matter of when, given that I picked this up just in time for summer in NY it seems.
-Yes, you can see some of the former seam lines where the piping was added. Unfortunately this was necessary as the seams had to be widened to accommodate adding the piping by hand. There are machines that may be able to accomplish this without widening the stitches, and I know it may immensely bother some people, but I'm attempting to put my neuroticism over getting this jacket 100% right to rest (at least for now). There is no good way to patch/soften the stitch holes due to the nature of the material, although I'm hoping time and wear will help. In the interim, we'll chalk it up to the coat being "weathered"
-The shoulders were padded and piped, and while some may disagree on how accurate it is, it looks right to me based on what we've seen and I personally love the silhouette it produces. I simply feel cooler walking down the street wearing the coat with these shoulders done this way
All in all, I'm a very happy camper.
Also, just for reference, the sweater IS an aster. It's actually navy blue and not the black one. I mistakenly purchased it in the wrong colorway, but for the $33 usd it ran me on Mercari, I can only be so distraught. If you can find one in navy blue, it makes a nice substitute for the black one IMHO, especially if you're trying to channel K's overall style rather than being exact.
Anyway. I'm tired now.
