Quote from: MWBailey on November 20, 2020, 12:46:50 AMLooks a bit like the (apocryphal, yet still blendable) shell jacket, albeit in blue rather than confederate gray, worn by Patrick Wayne in the movie Rio Lobo (John Wayne Jingoistic wetsern movie). The collar's different, but not much else, so far as I remember.Nice look!
Quote from: J. Wilhelm on August 07, 2021, 06:14:04 PM It looks like I just lost this jacket on my way home yesterday. If I lostit in the bus, then it's gone for good. I'll be searching for a replacement, but I don't have too much time to do that in person, and it looks like the jacket is nearly sold out and out of print.
Quote from: Sorontar on July 31, 2022, 02:31:29 AMI can certainly see possibilities. Depending on what look you want, you can add black or white lace around the neck and/or cuffs. If you decide not to use it as a cropped jacket, the black section can be replaced with loose white cotton or similar for a blouse/shirt-like look, or a darker leather/suede apron effect. The arm pockets can have a logo painted or stitched onto them, or maybe bits of radio aerials or other equipment stuck into them, or maybe bones or feathers or something appropriate to your persona for the occasion when you wear it. Likewise, the front can have something placed over the trademark and new buttons can be glued/welded onto some of the existing press-studs.I have been wanting to make a costume based on the (lesser known) Star Wars pirate, Talon Karrde - Being able to adapt existing clothing is crucial as it saves me having from to make the jacket myself. My main problem is finding suede that matches the brown of my existing jackets.Sorontar
