Vonne, this is an absolutely wonderful jacket and your model ain't half bad either. (typical US sarcastic understatement....) Anyway, thanks for the review and the inspiration to sew for our men!! I'll have to dig out that WOF issue!

Very stylish indeed! So much nicer than the jacket on the model in Burda. I love all the topstitching and extra details.

What a handsome DH! He's certainly a great model for the lovely jacket. The fit is so good, and it looks like he is already very pleased. Great job!

Wow, I really love this piece. Thansk for the tip on how you traced with two pencils to add an even seam allowance - so clever!

Mmm. Do you really mean to wash off any weatherproofing from this jacket? I'd consider it an advantage. Especially as this hardly looks like your average outdoorsy jacket :-).

Fabulous Jacket, nice fit, hunky hubby, what more could you ask? What really stands out is your impeccable topstitching.

thanks for the review. My DH wants me to make him a sport coat and I keep procrastinating. He looks great in the jacket and it and I hope that he appreciates the really fine workmanship.

Outstanding work, as always. And there are so many useful tips in this review - you should write a book! A thought: shall we call them 'prince' seams when they are on a male? :-P
