    Where did they get the side pocket idea from? Someone I know with a right jacket in the wrong color has never mentioned that to me.

    Similar styles had side pockets, but if this style did, it would be news to me.
    I believe he is putting his hands in the side pockets in this picture. The pocket flap is visible so he isnt putting his hands in those pockets.

    I’ll pull up a high res version of that picture when I get home to have a look. That would be an interesting addition to my mental image of this jacket if true. I love how there’s still new information to learn about this costume.

    I might be selling my Headgoonie denim jacket that came out in 2015.

    I am sure about the side pockets were on the originals (at least on the smiler pattern) I have posted this before, but this is what I bought on eBay in 2013. Unfortunately this was way too big for me and gave up though. As you can see there are reinforcing stitches on the bottom of the pockets, this one had those.

    Iím glad to see that they did it perfectly! Pretty excited. I am hoping that they fix the curve of the front panels nicely as they mentioned. (that is the only down side for this updated version)

    Yes, sir. I am only 5.4 and this was I think L to maybe even XL...
    i am not sure exactly what size Michal was wearing in the movie, but I can assume that was S.

    Yes he wore a small. With a medium vest over it. Im assuming even a small was a tad too big so they removed a couple sections from the waistband and resewed it back to the jacket. Or they just moved the waistband up under the lining and attached a new snap button since it would be moved up too much.

    I sent this to HeadGoonie. I have screen shots of this in many scenes. The buttons have a little dimple in them. I hope he's adding this to his jacket.

    No, it was not a replica. That was an actual vintage.
    I think this kind of dimple is depending on how hard you hit the snap from the back. (I have tested before) It has a risk to smash too much and ruin the snap, but you can replicate the look easily if you could take that risk!

    Would you sell it?

    As for the buttons, the screen used jacket has identical, perfect, dimples in all the button, they must have been manufactured that way.

    Sorry, I gave that jacket away years ago.
    I hope Headgoonie cares those details, but since the shapes of the Headgoonie’s snaps are already not ultra accurate to me (the vintage one has more pronounced dome shape with pretty thin edges) I doubt that they are going to replicate it...but I am on your side, if they could do it for the final productions, that’ll be super!

    Also, if they care that kind of detail, I wish they could make better paisley patterns...and dig more deeper on the left side inner fabric...etc... However, a replica is a replica and never be perfect, so I should just accept it this time...

    If you check HG's instagram they have a short video showing that they will fix the blue chest pieces to have the correct curve.

    The curve looks a lot better!

    However, I realized one thing from the video. Which is the collar. As you can see in the screen used one, blue denim part is over the gray denim (sandwiching the collar) but the headgoonie’s jacket is opposite...the collar is on the out side of blue denim. Maxcady did it right, so I don't think it is nothing structurally difficult thing to do though.

    No they got it right. The close up screen grab is of the greyish blue fabric. Not the full blue. Im using my phone so Im able to zoom in easily. With the collar flipped up the greyish blue is showing and when its down its normal blue.

    Sorry my description wasn't clear enough. It’s not about color combo!

    It is about how they attach the collar. See the stitch line. Collar should be underneath the blue chest piece.

    Good news. He replied me and said that he told the factory to fix it for the final production!
