I contacted Andrew about reproducing the Edward Oldham jacket, which is an undyed, wool jean jacket that Oldham wore while in the 7th Tennessee Cavalry. Andrew was enthusiastic about taking on this project and emailed me all the details of how the jacket was constructed. A few weeks later it arrived at my door. I just can't say enough about the jacket Andrew produced. Completely hand sewn of undyed wool jean per the original, seven eagle buttons per the original, and a perfect fit. Absolutely perfect. He even found fabric of a very close match to the plaid shirting used for the lining on the original. Andrew's hand work is neat, tight and precise. The jacket I received compares very, very favorably to the original in fit, finish, material, and construction method; all the requirements for an authentic reproduction of a documented garment. Further Andrew is a true gentleman to work with in every sense of the word. He was in communication with me every step of the way and was true to his word in every detail. I would recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a high quality, authentic garment with which to better their impression. Andrew, it was sincerely a pleasure!
