Penny it looks great - I found it hard to picture a zippered jean jacket but it looks really good, well done!

Wow, welt pockets on your jean jacket. Fantastic! Very nice jacket and I'm sure you'll get lots of wear out of it.

Your jacket looks very nice, ITA that the zipper is a nice detail! Can't wait to see the next one!

The zipper is a nice detail. It keeps your jacket from being just another ordinary jean jacket.
