    Sorry Ken that this has taken so much out of what is a trainee jacket and maybe could have been mentioned as such earlier in the thread, assuming it was purchased as a cheaper jacket reflecting that fact...
    It is good to see all the top end makers evolving there products to make them stand up to the scrutiny on sites such as this one, that we all share and post on
    Certainly the up to date B3’s and Irvins are right up there in my opinion
    I posted on a separate thread that the pictures you have on Instagram show some of these jackets really well, so would encourage the good folk here to have a look

    In general, wouldn't it be straight forward to get the shears out and trim 3/4" shearling to 1/4" ?

    That occurred to me, although I imagine that would make the cuffs a bit slack if they were made with thicker sheepskin. You also wouldn't want to get it wrong!

    I thought that ken from aero explained that they have gone back to how they originally had the depth of shearling like the pic he posted unless u ask for it to be 25mm and like the bushier look

    No, the windflap is the strip of shearling behind the zip that stops the wind getting through.
