    I think people are unsure what you are asking,

    If you're asking if its accurate, certainly seems to be.
    The only thing i can see that may be innacurrate is the poppers on the sleeve cuff, supposed to be 2 each but you cant tell with their images

    I don't think the pockets on the show coat are zippered. Maybe. But I can't see it in the pictures you've posted.
    And the pockets on the coat they are selling look to be on the wrong angle.

    It just sorta' screams 'knockoff' to me.

    It's a replica rather than the same jacket, Rick's jacket to my knowledge is a UGG Brown Belfast Suede Bomber Jacket with the pockets altered to remove the zips (you can actually see some loose threading in the first of those two images where the zips were).

    As far as I know though, it's been out of production for a while so you may be in for a hunt to find one.

    I own the original jacket and can tell you it is impossible to find. There are some good replicas though, the best one currently made can be found on ebay by the seller White Sheep Leather, it even has the stretch fabric panels on the sides, as does the original one. It does not have the correct zippers, nor the quilted inner lining of the real jacket.

    I own the white sheep jacket. You can see it in my own Rick grimes thread. It's as close a replica as I've been able to find, and I actually like it so much I regularly wear it all the time. It's a warm, well made jacket, my only problem is the lining on the collar could be better quality, but that could most likely be modded if you like. Hope this helps!!

    Well, it's your choice but the collar is actually not correct. The zipper is supposed to go all the way up along the edges of the fur collar. If I were you I'd pick up the one from White Sheep Leather. It has the correct collar and has the ribbed fabric side panels and underarm pieces.

    So, even though I keep looking regularly, I apparently missed 3 listings on eBay already without even knowing it (2 were UK-only so they never turned up in my search results).
    I already have one myself as well, so I don't really care, but I saw that one was sold for a mere 80 pounds (!!!). The insanity! :eek Especially considering the fact that one was sold earlier for 900 US dollars! Equally insane, but somewhat more understandable.

    Yes my auction was UK bidders only one and at first I got out bid by £5 which really hacked me off, so I sulked for a while, and out the blue got a second chance offer as the original buyer was from overseas so ended up paying £225 which was a bargain as they cost over $600! new even before the popularity of the walking dead.And on a second note my jacket is like new!!

    Would you mind taking some more detailed photos in good lighting of your jacket? I'm considering ordering a replica and want to get the details accurate and it would be of great help

    If you could, please take photos of the front, back, sides, close up of the side light brown fabric, the sherpa collar, the open jacket, the wrist snap buttons, zippers, and the back shape of the jacket, and also a couple photos of you wearing the jacket along with fitting details (Height, average clothing size you wear, etc.)

    Please and thank you!

    I apologize for the intricate and insane detail, I've been following this jacket for YEARS and have been trying to get the closest thing possible.

    White sheep leather - http://www.ebay.com/itm/walking-dea...074187825af8e8ca419d33&pid=100505&rk=1&rkt=1&

    Suzahdi - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rick-Grimes...hash=item1a21f669dc:m:maz2w-FT817KiG-5LX9MjGA

    These are the two I'm currently contesting between. I've spoken with WSL and Suzahdi and both have said they will do customization on the jacket

    Suzahdi sent me some images here http://imgur.com/a/Kz9Cn

    WSL also sent me some images here http://imgur.com/a/idBX4

    My main gripes are getting the details right, this includes:

    - The color of the stitching detail is brown, not gold

    - The fit of the jacket is more athletic shaped than square

    - Suede quality of the shell

    - Distance between the two buttons on the snap cuffs near the wrists

    - Zippers being gold or brass

    - Side rib cloth being a cotton Lycra blend and being the right color brown, not purple

    - The fur collar being toledo shearling and having the right length of the collar

    Also been following it for ages, i orderd the Whitesheepleather one back in november but im not quite satisfied and i think i might got the wrong size. The material under the arms dosnt look close to what Rick has. And if you lift your arms it makes the shoulder kinda follow up with it so it looks odd. I can send you pictures of it if you want. If you are going to get it you should get a custom size. The one i am currently looking at is this one http://www.americanjacketsstore.com/product/the-walking-dead-rick-grimes-jacket/

    Yes if you could post some detailed pictures of the WSL jacket you have that would be good. From what you're saying and comparing the WSL jacket to the original, the WSL looks more rigid and stiff when it should be softer and a little more flexible.

    The Suzahdi jacket looks a bit nicer, and I've also heard that the americanjacketsstore replica isn't the good either. I'll try to contact Suzahdi and see if they have more images

    I also have the whitesheepleather one (though I ordered mine from an ebay seller called "Marvel leathers") (the paypal payment still went to whitesheepleather)
    I'm also ridiculously picky about the jacket to the point of being obsessed, i've flicked through any episode with the jacket in and looked through every picture there is and tried to find the perfect replica, though it's very difficult to find one.

    I've recently also been looking at the Suzahdi one, they sent me some VERY low res pictures when I asked to see a real example of the jacket, they apparently also do a real shearling collar for an extra $15usd, but I'm unsure if this will be the right type of shearling or whether it will look completely wrong (too thick/fluffy/too flat/not fluffy/not bendy enough etc)

    Ricks collar seems quite thin and flexible compared to a lot of the replicas out there. And yeah I know what you mean about the length of Ricks collar, it seems to reach further down the chest and be wider around the neck than the replicas do, unsure if this is just the design of the jacket or whether it's to do with the fit of Ricks jacket (it seems quite big/baggy on him)

    The Suzahdi pictures you sent also seem to have a leather material under the arms (it looks shiny and reflective rather than matte) instead of the stretchy kind of material Ricks jacket has. The Whitesheepleather jacket seems to replicate this better (although in the low res pics I have from Suzahdi it looks like the material could be the strechy kind and not leather?)

    I have attached the 5 pics I have from Suzahdi below (one of the pics is comparing synthetic shearling to real shearling - the bigger piece of shearling is the real shearling)
    And I have also attached some of my pics of my Whitesheepleather jacket.

    There's also how the collar seems to have more of a curved angle at the edges rather than a squared off look, again I don't know if this just wear and tear that the outfit team added on the walking dead or what (the original UGG Australia Belfast jacket that Ricks jacket is, has more of a squared off collar again, ive also attached pictures of this to compare what i mean)

    You may want to reupload the images to imgur, for some reason the links are broken

    From what it looks like in your images from the other post, the White Sheep Leather model looks accurate design wise it's just the material of the Suede isn't as soft and looks very matted

    The Suzahdi one looks great quality wise, it's just like you mentioned with the side rib quality and the length/quality of the shearling collar

    Man this jacket is tough to get a decent replica for :/

    No worries, uploaded here: http://imgur.com/a/W7ewL (ricks collar somehow looks more rounded/like a softer edge/maybe its just the suede/collar folded weirdly)

    Yeah I know what you mean about the suede quality on the Whitesheep jacket, although i wouldn't say its as rough as it looks somehow, but again, Ricks jacket looks like a smoother suede with no little fibres sticking up out of the suede.

    And yeah it's hard to get a very accurate replica, especially when trying to communicate with the ebay sellers and explaining your customisation requests and their english isn't the best lol. I'm curious if that side material on the Suzahdi is leather or whether they use a stretchy type material, looks leather on the pics you uploaded but the stretchy on the pics I uploaded.

    If you can get pics of the overall jacket front and back, sides, cuffs, interior, pockets, up close of the suede fabric, up close of the collar, up close of the interior fabric, things like that

    Oh nice, not sure why they sent you the high res but not me xD (unless it's related to an issue ebay have been having recently - attaching pictures seems to have been partially broken recently, so maybe they thought lower res would be easier) but yeah it looks leather, i wonder if they'd customise that and make it lycra cotton blend, and even then if it would be the right colour etc, would need to talk to them and see high res pics of the lycra cotton blend they'd use, would need to be the same ish colour as the leather i guess. (they haven't replied to my message in a few days)

    For the real shearling collar, I think it looks relatively accurate in terms of the actual fluffyness/texture etc, i guess it's just the length/how it sits around the back of the neck, which might be a hard thing to explain for them to customise. The Suzahdi jacket is more accurate/higher quality in every way apart from the under arm sections I think.

    There are also little details that are better with the Suzahdi jacket like the buttons on the wrists are more accurate (they're on the correct side of the material and also have a little bit of suede that sticks out - i'll show what I mean on this link: http://imgur.com/a/0S6ph )

    The Suzahdi also uses darker stitching (maybe black as opposed to brown like the real one but could always ask what colour it is and whether they'd customise)
    From what i've seen of the zips on the suzahdi too I don't know if these are too much of a shiny gold somehow and again whether they put maybe a duller bronze on or something - again might just be me being very picky)

    I've been messaging them on facebook and they said it's better through FB since the images aren't compressed to death, as far as the zippers go it's hard to tell but it looks like an antique bronze but the lighting can make it difficult sometimes. For the most part Suzahdi looks accurate, my only gripes are the zipper shininess, the interior, and the collar lining being too fluffy; from Rick's official jacket it looks like it's a shorter more tame look of the shearling

    I'm surprised but glad this thread's been getting a lot of traction lately, I've been wanting a perfect Rick jacket replica for years! Just been trying to nail every detail and find the right seller

    Ahh I see, I shall have to try messaging them on Facebook then, thanks for the tip! And yeah I think again the zippers shininess could be down to wear and tear in the apocalypse - they might have been gold on the original jacket but have been made to look worn down and... "grimey" ;) so yeah bronze would be better I think (that's also what I asked for on my WhiteSheep version.

    And I see what you mean about the collar, maybe a bit shorter and neat/clean (wondering if certain shearling is more expensive too, I know the original UGG jacket that Ricks is was very expensive so could be a more premium shearling) although you mentioned "toledo shearling", is that the definite shearling? And if so how do you know? Or is it just from looking at examples etc?

    Another thing to note is that I think the Suzahdi version has 2 pockets inside while the Whitesheep only has the one.

    And yeah I also thought it was surprising that this was getting attention haha, I found the post and noticed the most recent reply was hours ago, I'd assumed it would be years old, I dont know of any other sellers who make the jacket with even details like the rib section under the arms, these are the only two sellers I've seen who do that.

    So I have been messaging Suzahdi on Facebook, so far I discussed whether they could customise:
    - Bronze/darker gold zips and buttons (less shiney as shown in picture i sent them from my WSL jacket)
    - Stretchy cotton-lycra blend type material under the arms (in the same/similar colour as their leather under arm material) (I also sent them a video and pictures of the material used on my WSL jacket under the arms to demonstrate the type of material i want)
    - Brown stitching (as shown in picture i sent them - http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/2016/03/07/walking-dead.jpg )
    - Real shearling (they said they would sample a few pieces of real shearling and share the pictures with me)

    I sent them these pictures for shearling reference:
    - http://cdn.thedailybeast.com/conten...t/image.img.2000.jpg/1396324500621.cached.jpg
    - https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon...OTIyNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDQ4NTY0ODE@._V1_.jpg



    I mentioned that there may be a few others interested in having their jackets customised in the same way.

    They replied with the following:
    "All right, please allow me 2 working days to share your video and requirement with our team to arrange this material for your jacket. How many other people are interested with you for this jacket with this material. So we will arrange its material accordingly."

    I told them 2 or 3 of us in total but that I couldn't guarantee you buying them etc so we shall see in a few days and I'll let you know what they say about all the customisations and shearling.

    I'm definitely interested in a jacket like that. Let us know as soon as you find out about the materials, shearling, and stitching color. I got the WSL jacket and it's cut rather short in the torso. Almost like a motorcycle jacket style with elongated sleeves. Also the soft material under the arms is almost a maroon/red color. So I'm looking into the Suzahdi jacket myself as well

    I just found these images on ebay and it's the exact Ugg jacket but in black, and it has the fabric details front the manufacturer tag as well as a good image of the rib fabric on the size as well as how thick it is, kinda looks similar to a sweatshirt in terms of thickness

    Also, don't forget to mention the jacket should have more of an athletic shape than a square straight form! See the reference photo from the above album showing the back side of the jacket

    Forgot to post the pictures sorry! So i tok a few pictures, but my phone is old so the quality isnt good at all. Taking the pictrues made me realized that i need to get a new phone. The interior has one pocket on the left side, The stitching of the it is okay, not good nor bad. The stretch colour looks brighter than it really is, but it is nowhere close to the real one. There is a few loose threads and the edge of the cuff can be split. I didnt get a picture of it because of the picture quality. Anywhere they are! http://imgur.com/a/dnABU

    Edit: also you can kinda see the shoulder thing i talked about.

    Wow, you have a high quality camera/phone. Btw do you have the same shoulder issue as i have? If i tok any size smaller the jacket would be too short so. I might sell this one (Dont know where so any tips to sell it would be great, maybe to a large guy or something) btw the colour under isnt fully purple, but its not brown either.

    Yeah it's a Galaxy S7 Edge.
    I think I know what you mean about the shoulders, they kind of crinkle up when if i lift my arms, I probably needed a size up on the jacket I think.
    And not sure on where you'd sell it, I was actually thinking the same thing about mine, maybe ebay?

    I have never used Ebay to sell something so maybe.And no if you got a size up the shoulder thing would happen but a lot more. I normaly wear a Medium-large but got a XL so it wouldnt be too short.

    Ahh yeah nice spot, not sure whether they'd be able to replicate that when actually making it, i guess it would just be the suede/shearling that would be cut at a different angle?

    http://imgur.com/a/hBGdC

    Will likely show them that picture and see if they can make the collar at that angle with the zips curving like that.
