Introducing the Field Leathers X Carl Murawski B-3 inspired sheepskin jacket
We have had great fun working with Carl creating our spin on a B-3 sheepskin jacket suitable for the modern world whilst retaining and increasing the detailing found on the originals it stemmed from.
Every material used has been specially sourced for this project and we hope you agree it has paid off.
Made from 15mm North American sheepskin with a deep redskin finish, Chrome tanned & fitted with a #8 Reproduction Talon zip manufactured in Japan.
For our straps we chose to go with a tannery who are known for their quality in heavy but luxurious harness leathers, Wickett & Craig who was established in 1867 so there is no doubt they know their craft, we opted for their 6oz harness leather to use in this jacket.
A softer hide was required for the taping and trim and ultimately we landed on a beautiful Semi-Aniline Italian Cowhide from a tannery in Tuscany which we feel compliments the other materials very well.
We hope you agree that these choices along with the design details which vary the Connecticut from the B-3 originals was worth the time and effort.
