    Nice creation, like it a lot! Could it be… is it based on that oh so dear cardigan pattern??? Nice work.

    Nice! I love the two different grays put together, and the off-center closure is always classy!

    Waww felt? it seems soft and warm, isn’t it great when you finally pair the fabric with just the right pattern for it? Really great job, nice closures

    I really like this jacket. It’s sober and so…NOT sober ! And this first photo is the best one too…as it was said in the first comment : smart and casual.

    Super cute jacket! I like the contrasting trim and the fact that the jacket is asymmetric. Single breasted for sure!

    Nope. Don’t make it double breasted. The jacket is wonderful right now. Not just “okay” but wonderful. If you’ve got itchy fingers about it, just make a second version with the added row of buttons. But please. . . this one is so cool the way it is.

    love the jacket! the cut, fabric, buttons and color combination is totally awesome. love felt, i’m actually searching for boiled wool fabric to felt on. i spent the superbowl trying to cut out a pattern for a jacket myself.

    I like it a lot! Much better than if it was double breasted, i think.
