The Skyfall Bond jacket, based from the Levi Strauss jacket from around the 1930's is a classic design.
I bought mine in horsehide (see my Das Boot review) both seal & black. Both custom made + made to measure & extra inside pockets with all cotton lining.
Fantastic quality, as ever, very stylish cut & fit. The side straps really tailor the look.
The vented back think Indy Jones but sewn at the bottom, allows ease of movement.
The cuff straps add an extra sense of class & historic appeal.
The collar looks good flicked up as it's not oversized.
Note worthy, again, is not a mísplaced stitch. Thank you seamstresses !!!!
Mine, having four pockets, has plenty of storage space.
Be advised the handwarmer pockets are just big enough for a balled fist, this is per the original design.
The black & seal horsehide are again perfect. With good weight. Sadly, they will outlast me.
The horsehide is quite weighty & if you want something close to the original? Goatskin or pre-distressed lambskin is the way go. It will also be lighter.
The jacket is truly exceptional. Ideal for the Bond on a budget fan, try find the original 1930's jacket for the price of the custom made Wested !!!
All in all, excellent. Style, quality & affordability.
Everything to love & nothing to hate.
So, be stirred & not shaken.
