The Diplomat Gun Check

Remember that post I did a while back on Gun Check jackets?  Well, mine showed up, and I’m pumped.  I talked to my man Read at Diplomat Outfitters, and let him know what I was looking for:

  1. Unique, ‘brighter’ Gun Check fabric
  2. Almost fully unlined.  I wanted to be able to wear this almost year round
  3. The nice touches (working buttonholes, ticket pocket, soft shoulders) that updated it from the old-school heavy duty jackets

Needless to say, they delivered.  Read sent me a picture of a fabric end piece where there was just enough fabric to construct the jacket.  Since they have my measurements on file, I gave the go ahead without a second thought.  The jacket arrived four weeks later, and it’s now in the rotation:

How cool is that touch of light blue?

Not a lot of lining…

Workin’

Your ticket, please…

I couldn’t be happier.  The guys at Diplomat did me right.  Expect to see this jacket quite a bit…  And I know you’ll ask: the artwork is by my man Tayler Ayers (@tayler.ayers).  He’s amazing.

Thanks to Diplomat for the jacket.  I really do love it.

    Sharp!  How was the fit?  I assume, by having your measurements on file, you’ve purchased from them before.  Any final tailoring, or off the hanger ready to hit the street?ReplyCancel

    How did you get fitted for yours? Did you provide measurements, or did you use their fit algorithm. If the latter, how was the process?ReplyCancel

    Also, did you opt for half canvas or full canvas? Is your jacket the “half lined” or the “unlined” option?ReplyCancel

    I think I would have gone with some shade of brown for the buttons.  Black is a little too much contrast.  Sharp jacket otherwise!ReplyCancel
