Jess reminded me that ‘d never updated about The Jacket. I did end up getting the Doctor Who/Das Boot jacket from Wested. Check out this thread for my perfectionist analysis and more information than you could ever want on the subject.
Short version is that it’s not perfectly screen accurate, and I have a few niggles, but overall it’s a damn cool jacket and I’m keeping it. I haven’t managed to get a good picture yet, but what I have are in the linked thread.
It’s brand new leather so it still needs some breaking in. Since it’s been pretty cold, and we keep our heat on a pretty low setting to save energy and money, I usually wear a hoodie, or warm fuzzy shirt over a T-shirt, but to help break my new jacket in, I’ve been pretty much wearing it every waking hour instead.
