Well, this Jacket company isn't a scam, as much as the site looked to be and I'm just about finished with the modifications.

I took the base jacket, Removed the Velcro, Black pocket flaps and back center flap. I took the back flap and used it to make belt loops. Replaced the clips and D Ring to Brass and the black upper webbing to orange. Added the Nylon strip, Velcro to the bottom pocket, Brass Snaps, Patches, Plugged Hose (I know it's a new Frozen Empire style of plug, the same that's on the Engineer suit but until someone starts making them, these Afterlife style ones will be used as a stand in). I had to sew 2 Pistol Belts together to get all the way around the jacket. I hid the seem under the back center belt loop and tacked it in.

It's got a Pixel Props Coat Gizmo in it for now, again until someone starts making them more accurate and have some spare funds.
Also included is a WIP Engineer Suit shot.

@PaulDx508 - Is this the jacket you modified? If so, how is the overall quality for the price?

It is that jacket. The price to quality is great IMO just opt out of the printed name tags and mooglie to save money. They literally peeled right off immediately.

And Magnoli aside, even the Wuxly Ghostbusters Collection jackets at all price points, all need to be modified. So this is the best bang for your buck. The shoulder flaps and back zipper are the only 2 things that aren't accurate that I feel I couldn't really remove.

I received my Magnoli fake today. It came from Karachi Pakistan. I’m glad I have a coat for the premiere but you can tell it was made hastily with threads and scrap material in the pockets. The fabric also looks like it’s been on a shelf for years. It could use a washing or maybe I leave it for that weathered look lol. I ordered it WITHOUT the patches but it came with them anyway. They’re just tape and peel off.

That's a bummer, mines in pretty good shape, if I have to guess they're just going to keep getting worse and worse. Making them quicker and quicker, now that words out that they're not actually scamming. But yeah the patch tape is awful.
