Chains are great - in Chanel's signature fabric, loosely woven and very lightweight, drapey. But they're there because they have a function, to add a bit of weight to hold the back in place. In upholstery fabric, they'd be purely ornemental, if not fighting the structure entirely. But whatever pleases you ;-). I have to admit that I'm not given to military looks on principle, but you make it looks sooo good it's tempting!

Sharp, crisp military jacket and your use of nubuck was inspired; it really takes the look to a new level. Perfect topstitching, which is always a one-try-only challenge in leathers and nubuck. Your bound buttonholes and chain are couture worthy. Extraordinary! -Lily
