    Thanks for the additional information/details regarding the White Sheep Leather version (especially 715creeks). Think that has to be the most in-depth and helpful analysis of the WSL version we've had. Good to know.

    I heard back from WSL regarding an issue I had. I noticed that when stood up over the face, there is a big separation between the guard and the rest of the jacket. Zlurpo's definitely doesn't have this issue as the fabric sits together nicely when the guard is up over the face. I have a naff faux leather version of the jacket, and while I'm not a big fan of it (hence me looking for a cotton one) it has a zip in the section (pictured) which holds it together better when it sits over the face. This may sound confusing but the pictures should hopefully explain what I mean.

    Anyway, to clarify. WSL got back to me and confirmed a zipper can be added (like in my dodgy faux leather version). I still don't think I'm going to go ahead with WSL as I want a proper, warm winter coat (Winters in England don't tend to drop below freezing but I still think it may be a little on the thin side). But hopefully this helps anyone still planning to order from them - you CAN ask for a zipper to be added (if you want that kind of thing).

    A zipper would work, but the other versions (including the original) just use stitches to attach the lapel together. That seems like it would be much easier to add.

    [QUOTE=Zlurpo;4392095]Here's some pictures of the coat I'm offering. I actually don't have a coat that fits me just right, since I didn't order a final version. But these show the final coat on a hanger pretty well!

    Pros: Overall look, weight, outer color I think is perfect, I love the new fur texture, and the magnets actually seem to do a solid job of holding it closed.

    Cons: The fur is a bit too orange. My initial reaction when I saw it in person was that it was WAY too orange, but after seeing it for a while I really think the biggest issue is that it's too clean. I think that dirtied up, it's pretty dang close. Not as perfect as the outer cloth color, but very close. Second run I believe will have a slightly lighter, less orange color. But not far from this.

    I have tried to use flat lighting and photoshop to get the third picture to reflect the colors accurately but gosh it's hard to get it just right with a camera. Inside looking at a coat, it looks like the right shade of green. As I carry it outside, it looks gray. Get outside, it looks blue (as seen in the first two pictures). I guess that means it matches the movie!

    Attachment 788037[/QUOTE

    Love it!!! I agree on the fur color. I hope run two is a bit more beige.

    For those doing a K style stealth costume (one with plausible deniability), I can recommend Baracuta oilskin outerwear in forest green. I ordered a G10 winter coat on sale as an impulse purchase, and was determined to return it once I received it after much recrimination. However, the weight, color, and movement of the waxed cotton is dead-on to my eye. The color is liminal, at once black or dark gray and green. The navy blue coat looks cool, too, though I've not seen it in person.

    The shape has a slight A-line from the shoulder to hem. If I measured correctly, mine (US/UK 36) is 32" from shoulder to hem. At 5' 7" or 5' 8", the hem falls 3-4" above the top of my knee, about the same length as K's "action coat" (below) that we are not supposed to notice. It fits true to size and appears to be very high quality. Baracuta has a long history from Elvis to Sinatra, Steve McQueen, Tom Cruise, etc. Their most famous jacket is the G9, but this G10 makes a pretty great Blade Runner-ish jacket if you are interested in Blade Runner-ish style over verisimilitude.

    I might put some patches on it or maybe add some detachable sherpa. K's actual coat looks to be more of a Belstaff style (from the felled shoulder detail), but this Baracuta one is a fine detective coat, too. They are having a sale at the moment, 40% off. The color of this really makes me want to run through a wall at full speed. The waxed fabric is a bit stiff in a good way--it has some memory. I expect it to develop unique wrinkles and wear similar to a leather jacket or a pair of good jeans.

    I did the same thing with this coat from QOR. It's a very good waxed cotton that falls just below the butt. I had faux shearling sewn in and placed a button under the right collar to make it stand up. The coat is intentionally cut larger than normal, so I ordered a Medium and the fit is amazing. I'm 6'3", 195lbs, slim-ish, and it fits like it was tailor-made.

    So I think I am ready to push the button on the WSL coat, will go down the custom size route. This thread has been so helpful, you are all wicked!

    Decided to do some weathering on my Magnoli coat, just a light dusting of fullers earth on some of the seams and stress points, I used some pictures from the movie for reference, but tried to keep it a bit more tame. I think it came out alright while not looking to costumey for everyday use.

    that looks great! you planning on attempting to "dirty" up the shearling at all? looking forward to getting my coat soon, ordered it a few months ago! (although i have been regularly pestering Indy with frequent revision requests which has probably caused delays )

    Not yet, I'm not quite confident enough to use shoe polish because that seems a bit more permanent than fullers, but sometime down the road I will
    Hopefully it gets to you soon, looking forward to seeing others peoples coats with all the revisions and custom options they do with them.

    The addition of the sherpa here is excellent. Did you use the Alibaba sherpa cloth mentioned earlier in the thread?

    For boots, I got the usual 8" "Strike" ones from Amazon. I wasn't totally impressed with them, as it looks like the only leather part is the toe piece. I was using some Huberd's neatsfoot oil on them, and I think most of the other "leather" pieces are just vinyl. I checked out the Bates Boots site, and it now looks like they are selling the boots, perhaps slightly upgraded, as 8" "Shock" boots.

    But I also noticed they have a new version called "Shock FX." The Shock FX boots differ in that they have an additional reinforced toe cap, but it also looks like they have much more actual leather and come in three colors ("Dark Cloud" looks especially nice) and black. These look like 6" boots.

    No, I used a faux shearling from Mood Fabrics (below). It's sold out but I have plenty left over if anyone wants some.
