First of all - if you haven't yet watched 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'; go and watch it! The film is funny, feel-good and it inspired us to make a new jacket. Although we have taken inspiration from the film, we want to be clear that this is not a replica jacket, there's a variety of differences in our fit and design which make this jacket completely unique. We just wanted you all to know how much this film inspired us.
The jacket is made out of a grainy black hide, with suede tan features on the underside of the collar and the inside of the cuff. The leather is durable, but the hide is very soft so the first time you try it on will feel like it's a well-worn jacket rather than being stiff when it comes out of the packaging!
Although the jacket is a box fit, it is a slim fitted box jacket! It is a really nice easy fitting, easy going jacket that you can throw on in a second with pretty much anything.
This item is a replica, not an original jacket. It's made in England.
• 7 button fastening
• One leather bound inside pocket
• Fully lined with black satin

It's REALLY important for you to know that this is an approximate general size chart and not exact, these jackets are true to fit so all you need to do is take your chest measurement and pick the size your chest measures (e.g. if you measure tightly a size 38 then order a size 38). For a custom size, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

From the movie Kingsman 2, not my favourite, came the whisky jacket.
To me this jacket is very reminiscent of the 1950's blue collar worker or teamster jacket. The kind worn by union workers in 50's America. Those who know, will know.
It is a great design, basic & perfunctory. If you only had one leather jacket, this was it !!
With two handwarmer pockets, button front, side straps for adjustment, that was your lot.
As a custom made order, Wested put a second inside pocket in, fitted the all cotton lining & with made to measure specs I'm good to go. I also dropped the contrasting inner leather.
In horsehide, yes again, I have a solid throw on & forget good weight leather jacket.
This jacket would also be good in pre-distressed lambskin, for a lighter yet more vintage feel. Goatskin would also be good for a very long lasting jacket.
With most Wested leather jackets, there's plenty to love & nothing to hate.
The whisky jacket is no exception. With a classic design, practical pockets, solid leather, you have a lifelong friend.
I just don't personally associate the jacket with the (not good) Kingsman sequel.
Wested have delivered a classic design which deserves attention in its own right.
I believe this is my third jacket from Wested and it is outstanding. Beautiful, soft leather and the suede highlights just add to the overall look. Had a 44 regular custom made and it arrived faster then expected. Great work as always.
I popped down to Wested Leather in person this morning to get measured up for a Whiskey jacket. They had one on the rack; a standard size 44. It fit me perfectly so I bought it there and then. I own a lot of leather jackets and this one is instantly my favourite. The hide is substantial yet soft and flexible. The style and cut is excellent and the brown suede under the collar and inside the cuffs makes the jacket really stand out. I couldn't be happier. Thanks, Wested!
