The jacket does look great but for me the jeans are the business ... and I'd like to hear how they stack up against Mr Soul's standard issue '47s (any or all)

Love the fit of the jeans. The jacket looks great too, but I can't keep thinking how those jeans look perfect. Well done OO

Thank you for all of your kind words gentlemen.

Duke- The attention to detail is peerless here its less like reproduction and more like finding new old stock but im still in that honeymoon period let me live with them for a few months wash them a few times and get over this severe giddiness then i might be able to give you a more consideration opinion.

Im the meantime, courtesy of Lightening.

Thanks Double 0 - I think your plan will give a more balance analysis.
 
Interesting image too ... the main comparison shot tells a story in itself.

Here's a thing.
 
Back in my Art School days, I learned a trick in the Pictorial Composition class  - if you want to get proportions right, don't just look at shapes, but also look at the shapes of the spaces inbetween the shapes...
 
That has always stuck with me, so I guess that has helped me to be a bit of a picky bastard when I look at jackets.
 
Here's a close up comparison of the front of the original 46 jacket and the CSF copy:
 
 
 
The button spacing is spot on, but the stitching on the pleats is not. The bottom one, in particular, is way too high, and the relationship between it and the bottom of the pocket looks very different.
 
However, all is not lost. I reckon they just chose an early sample to use in that pic, because if you look at the jacket that 00 is holding, the spacing of the stitching is slightly bigger between each one, and the distance between the pocket is correct.
 
 
I guess they went to Art School too!LOL
