Thanks for making my day so bright and shiny! It has to be an inspiration just to hear all these lovely flattering words!!
Yes, it was just a normal plan duffle like jacket, I imagine you can apply the technique to anything that's too large. Defintely was trying to achieve the "historic era" look into someting that's mod and could be worn on a daily basis.
If you're still interested scuffmark21, I would be willing to part with it... since I did buy a few more of the same jacket's in different sizes with the intention I'll PM you.
