    The collar is indeed altered. I'll explain it here: http://upload.vstanced.com/images/2016/09/20/Vk0.jpg
    I've also just got these pics, so I'll show them this and try and explain it that way:

    Like Mike said: View Post
    Also took some of mine which may help! (i asked for a lighter brown colour on the under arm material instead of the purple on mine along with bronze zips)

    From what I can see on both of your jackets, the side rib fabric is stitch on top of the suede shell of the jacket instead of being integrated to the jacket as seen in the retail Ugg jacket here http://imgur.com/wBwKdFN If possible, hopefully one of the manufacturer's can integrate the cotton-lycra fabric in the side ribs of the jacket as opposed to how they put it on top of the suede.

    Another detail I noticed is that the sleeve/arm hole size is much too large and causes the discomfort you mentioned before about whenever you raise your arms/shoulders as shown here http://imgur.com/a/dp6Kd It seems like it would be much more accurate if the arm hole was somewhat smaller and the sleeve was more equal with the shoulder hem

    Yeah i think so too, as the other guy said he also has this problem but maybe not as much as me.

    some reference pictures of the real deal for you guys. it's a metric ruler and measuring tape. the jacket is a size L. the zippers are all pretty standard stuff, that can be found in the IDEAL zipper catalogue. the inner lining is slightly padded. the shearling collar was cut down for the jacket used on the show to approximately fit the collar length at the back of the neck.
    I don't have the jacket anymore, it was sold to a fellow forum member, so I can't take requests for additional pictures.

    That also has something to do with the width of the jacket at the arm pit and chest (basically the shape of the arm opening and how it cuts into the torso part of the jacket) and the angle of the set-in sleeve. I also have a White Sheep Leather jacket and mine was a bit snug in the chest (actually it was overall a bit snug) and because the armholes cut quite deep into the jacket (and consequently the shoulders were sticking out more) the shoulders looked 'pointy' when I lifted my arm up.

    By the way I also have the original in size L and the jacket is pretty wide in the shoulders (50 cm) and the arm pits (60 cm) and the armhole (measured straight 27 cm) doesn't cut that deep into the torso (smallest width between armholes at the front is 45 cm, at the back it's 47 cm). When I lift my arm the jacket does wrinkle a bit, but the shoulders are nowhere near as pointy as they get when you lift your arm wearing the White Sheep Leather jacket.

    Thanks for the pictures, these are very useful.

    When you say the collar was cut down to the length at the back of the neck, do you mean it was cut down to the length of the shearling on top of that stitched arch type thing? (so the collar should be about 7cm?) Or if not, what do you think the measurements for the collar should be?

    I'd probably go for something like this (9,5 cm at the back, 10,5 cm at the points of the arch-thingy and some 7 cm along the edge of the zipper):

    I'd also try to have the top of the zippers folded inwards into the collar if I were you rather than have it cut at a curve (definitely not straight), because it makes that part of the collar/fur look thicker which would look rather flat otherwise.

    It kind of looks like the zip just cuts right across the chest onto the collar, I think this would also explain why/how Ricks collar looks so wide when he wears the collar down like normal

    No, I'm sure that the chest piece isn't altered. Ricks collar often looks wide, because he doesn't close the zipper all the way up. The unaltered collar would look even wider then.
    Just underneath the collar, the zipper edge (and the collar itself) start flaring outwards, but because the collar the gets folded inwards the zipper edge gets a rounded shape.
    I hope I make some sense to you.

    Yeah I getya, and no you're right the chest isn't altered, i looked at pics and the stitching that runs next to the zip looks unaltered haha. The collar does look like its cut at a slanted edge though on that pic, I guess maybe in a similar enough way to the collar pic you edited earlier:

    How would you fold the little bit of shearling over and hold it in place then I guess? Unless you make the collar a little wider just next to the zip and somehow got it folded over?

    I don't think anyone has ever analysed a jacket in so much detail as much as we have on this thread xD

    I guess if you just had it made like that picture we edited, aslong as the zip runs underneath the collar a bit somehow, it would let you fold that edge without the zip stopping you.

    I was just about to say the same thing! I didn't think there were other people that cared as much about the details on Rick's jacket as much as I did, I'm glad we're all collectively working on this hopefully we'll get a good result

    Yeah I currently have two replicas, one is the first one I got which is not really at all like the original and the other is the Whitesheepleather one, so I'm hoping by talking with Suzahdi we can get all of the customisations right and sorted.

    I think a lot of the changes should be relatively easy when it comes to cutting material down into the right shape etc or changing materials for the underarm section, I had a reply from Suzahdi to say that they had received the lycra that they'd ordered for the jacket but that it wasn't close to the colour of the leather that they use for the underarm section, so they've said that the next option is to buy white lycra and have it dyed, I'm hoping to speak to them tomorrow and see if they've had any luck with that. I'm also still waiting to see if they manage to find anymore shearling (I've let them know it's toledo and they've said they'll try and find some samples of different shearlings)

    I've also asked about ordering zips from IDEAL ("accidental" pointed out that the zips were made by IDEAL earlier on in the thread) I don't know how to order from IDEAL though, i've checked the website and that doesn't seem to be much help, and I'm in the UK so I don't know if IDEAL is a thing over in the US or what. I think it's mostly YKK zips here but I could be wrong.

    I still have a few things to ask once they sort the lycra but again most things should be relatively easy I think. (I also sent them a link to this thread so they can see how picky we all are about the details and hopefully so they can see what we're after)

    Speaking to them on Facebook, you'll probably have an easier time once they've made one of these customised jackets haha, once they know what they're doing in terms of the lycra and shearling being right etc.

    Speaking to them on Facebook, you'll probably have an easier time once they've made one of these customized jackets haha, once they know what they're doing in terms of the lycra and shearling being right etc.
    Excellent work in your previous post on the comparison images! You also mentioned to Suzahdi about the side cotton-lycra being part of the jacket and not stitched onto the suede? That's a main detail I noticed all the jackets seem to miss but it does seem a little more difficult to make

    and if you haven't already please show them this image http://upload.vstanced.com/images/2017/01/20/r6e.jpg detialing the sleeve holes as well

    I haven't mentioned the cotton-lycra section being a part of the jacket, I think that'd probably be more of a tricky one somehow for them to do. Although it doesn't affect the outside look of the jacket as such does it? More so just the inside where you can see the cotton-lycra?

    In terms of the sleeve hole problem, I'm not sure if the Suzahdi jacket has the same problem as the WSL one with that, or whether its cut differently anyway.

    I have just noticed another easy thing that I will show them to alter:

    Yeah I getya, and no you're right the chest isn't altered, i looked at pics and the stitching that runs next to the zip looks unaltered haha. The collar does look like its cut at a slanted edge though on that pic, I guess maybe in a similar enough way to the collar pic you edited earlier:

    How would you fold the little bit of shearling over and hold it in place then I guess? Unless you make the collar a little wider just next to the zip and somehow got it folded over?

    I don't think anyone has ever analysed a jacket in so much detail as much as we have on this thread xD
    Like Mike said: View Post
    I guess if you just had it made like that picture we edited, aslong as the zip runs underneath the collar a bit somehow, it would let you fold that edge without the zip stopping you.
    With the excess fur you could fold it over the part of the collar that gets folded inwards. I don't know how they managed to keep things in place, but I guess they stitched it tight somewhere? As far as I can see in the pics the zipper teeth run all the way into the collar as it's folded inwards into the top of the collar (without a zipper stop that you normally have at the top of a collar).

    Everything all comes down to fit, which affects the whole model and shape/cut of the jacket.

    As far as the ribbed fabric on the side panels and underarms is concerned, it's on the outer shell of the jacket and also integrated into the lining of the jacket (including arms) allowing the jacket to stretch out. The original jacket can be completely stretched at these parts, whereas the White Sheep Leather jacket is beginning to tear at the seams on the inside for me (logically). That jacket is too snug and too short for me and the ribbed fabric is merely aesthetic.

    Also the jacket has a slimmed down ") (" shape. The Zuhadi jacket doesn't appear to have that.

    Ok, here are a few measurements:

    The jacket that I have is in size L.

    It's 50 cm wide in the shoulders, 60 cm in the armpits/chest, 58 cm at the bottom, but 54 cm in the taille/waist. Smallest width between armholes is 45 cm at the front (46 cm at the horizontal chest seam) and 47 cm at the back (at the horizontal back seam).

    But if I measure the suede at the front, it stops at 49 cm wide in the armpit area, then goes inward to 42 cm and then goes outward to 44 cm at the bottom stitches.
    At the back the suede runs differently. The front also shows more suede than the back does. It stops at 48 cm wide at the armpit area, then goes inward to only 37 cm (at the curved seam at the back) and then goes outward to only 38 cm at the bottom stitches.

    The side panels measure 14,5 cm at the smallest width (at the same height of the curved seam at the back), 17 cm at the bottom stitches and around 17 cm at the height of the armpits. It runs a little bit wider at the top but I'm unable to accurately measure it.

    Width of the armhole (measured straight) is 27 cm.

    The sleeve length (shoulder to cuff) is comfortably long: 69 cm. Underarm length (armpit to cuff) is 50 cm.

    Sleeve width is 21 cm at the armpits and 15 cm at the cuffs.

    Also the part of the cuff that sticks out, should only stick out 1,5 cm. At the current Zuhadi jacket the cuffs stick out too much and also the buttons are placed too much outwards consequently (the centre of the buttons are on the same line of the edge of the slit of the sleeve).

    Jacket length is 69 cm when measured from the bottom of the collar across the back to the bottom of the hem, 70 cm when measured at the side of the collar to the bottom of the hem. That means that the collar has a curved cut of 1 cm downwards at the back.

    Length of the pocket openings at the front is 15 cm.

    I hope these measurements help to get you a more proper fit closer to the original. Remember that these measurements are for a size L, so if you need a different size you're dependent on how the jacket gets scaled down.

    Yeah they probably had to stitch it together weirdly to hold it in place, I guess it depends if you'd ever wear the jacket with the collar upright too, if so it might look weird with the stitching and collar folded over etc.

    And in terms of the fit and sizing that may be tricky, I'm hoping that by explaining the shape of the jacket (where the suede should curve and where there should be more lycra in places etc) and then by letting Suzahdi know my sizing across chest, shoulders, waist, arms length, jacket length etc) that the jacket will come out right, I also sorted a pic to explain the cuff part that you mentioned:

    Along with this which may help, I'm trying to think how to do the collar with the whole running the zip underneath/into the collar and then folding the other part of the collar over but I'm unsure how I'd explain it to Suzahdi and how they'd do it, especially while still leaving the jacket functional with the collar up (which I probably wouldn't wear it like that often but still)
    This is always another solution to help make it looks more accurate if not:

    That looks awesome, nicely done!

    In regards to your other post about the cotton-lycra not affecting the jacket being on the outside, I think having the rib sides be integrated to the jacket rather than on the outside give it a little more flexibility. I pulled out some of the old blu rays and went back to specific episodes with Rick's jacket (I've been analyzing this jacket for years I'm obsessed lmao) and the flexibility really showed in his movement, or even in the first appearance of the jacket (4x11 "Claimed") when he threw it out the window onto the roof it wasn't as stiff.

    I mean don't get me wrong it's not an absolute necessity if Suzahdi can't do it, but for authenticity and comfort sake I would strongly be for it if Suzahdi is able to integrate the cotton lycra. Plus I've been wanting a Rick jacket for years and I wanna get every detail down to the stitching accurate (minus the ripped pocket zipper from 5x01 when he used it to splint off a piece of wood as a weapon) If Suzahdi is willing to go all out and take our input for the jacket at such a reasonable price I'd take advantage of it

    Also as lame as it sounds I'm really glad I found some people who are as passionate about this jacket as I am, you guys are awesome :')

    It's your choice. You can provide your own measurements, but that might change the whole fit and look of the jacket completely. Especially if the tailor doesn't make use of the fit of the original jacket as a starting point. You could use the measurements as a starting point to replicate the shape and fit of the original jacket and adjust it to your measurements.

    I've been there, and still am, even though I own the original. At the time I had to do things myself and the current White Sheep Leather jacket design was the result of that. And still I'm looking for a second jacket. Although I don't think it will be a Suzahdi jacket. I have a dislike for companies that advertise with pictures of products that aren't the actual products.
