Wested were contracted to make this ¾ U Boat Jacket in Mid Grey Leather for the Film Das Boot, but the coat is so good we were asked to remake the jacket in Black worn by Christopher Eccleston in the TV series Dr Who. The style known as a reefer jacket its the perfect leather 3/4 coat coming in a variety of skin choices and made in England... The double-breasted coat has beautiful double stitch details on the front point design (continued at the back of the jacket). Based on a WW2 German submarine jacket and bought back to the future by Wested Leather.
Made to order so please allow 14 working days at least.

Dr Who? or Das Boot ?
I ordered my jacket in horsehide. I do like Wested horsehide.
I went for the custom made - made to my dimensions & all cotton lining & two inside pockets.
Now, is this Dr Who? Or Das Boot? You decide.
The jacket, at 31" length, is just beautiful. The horsehide is a good weight & will last a lifetime.
With six pockets x4 outside & x2 inside - there's plenty of storage space.
The all cotton lining is a comfortable environment, not overheating or being cold, being always just right.
I guess the thick horsehide helps?
The quality is perfect. Every fold, every stitch, every seam is perfect. If you want a custom made leather jacket that is affordable, practical, long lasting & you like the movie or tv show? This is for you.
There are no cons to the buy, but all pros.
I have six Wested leather jackets. All are exactly what I want. Zero complaints, none.
My advice, funds permitting, go for custom made.
Enjoy the jacket of a lifetime, for a lifetime.
This is a tremendous product - beautifully made and really warm. It feels surprisingly light to wear too. Excellent service and swift delivery.
Gorgeous jacket. I am very pleased with the finished product. Wested worked with me to make some adjustments on the pocket layout. Top notch customer service. The price point is very competitive with similar quality garments costing much more stateside.
I've been eyeballing this one for awhile. Being 6'2" and about 200lbs; I ordered the XL. To me, it seems the sizing runs a bit small but I chalk this up to differing expectations between the US and UK. If anyone ordering has any doubts, then I highly recommend to spend the extra money for custom sizing. Beautiful job. Great craftsmanship.
