USPS.  You should have received a tracking number automatically, I think.
I was just about to email you!  Four of them, including mine, did not make it past QA/QC.  So yeah, a few of us will have to be poor little match girls this winter :( It's wierd, because it was not even one we made up in our head.  It was something they had sampled.  But often, sampling and production are very different, so... things happen.  Sorry to you, me, and two others.
American jackets typically have epaulets at the shoulder, and often, full belt.  They also typically have the coin pocket in the front.  English style jackets don;t typically have epaulets, nor the coin pocket, and in the case of Lewis leathers, often have side adjusters instead of a full belt.  Of course, none of this is set in stone.
The Manila is probably closest to a Lightning, with the zippers in the same configuration, but with the belt line of the Cyclone, which is the picture you had up originally. Lightning:   @gdl203 - I'm not a big believer in originality in fashion, but that jacket is an homage to classic English designs, while a lot of the jackets that you have shown are classic American designs.  Lewis Leathers has an "American" style double rider, called the Bronx, that was popular...
 I'll freely admit that this looks cool.
I need to talk to Guy about leathers. On a personal note, if any one wants a pair of Size 9.5 Route 10 chukkas - natural CXL chukkas with ping pong partial structure in stitchdown, NIB, I'm letting go of my pair if anyone is interested.  $500 OBO,  I've just come to the conclusion that I'll end up wearing my Hoppers instead this fall.
We... are still working on that.  Last year, we had Mac n cheese, and it was definitely enough to make a huuuuge meal out of it.  This year, we may have a caterer with small bites, or some cheese and charcuterie, or something else.  A few things are up in the air.   Suffice it to say, it will probably not be the same as last year, since my fellow organizers consider me a barbarian (which I wear with pride, btw), and won't allow me to serve super heavy food. But.. I am...
Oh, and all the invoices for the 50% remainder of the preorder have gone out today.  Get them paid, and we'll get your boots out this week!  I will try to take a few pics before we do.   Cheers,   Fok.
CXL is pretty water resistant.  It really depends on your preference and the actual level of rain. In my experience, San Francisco gets some heavy rains, but not really on a regular basis.  Most of the time, it's just a steady drizzle.  And there is no snow, so no need to worry about things like salt stain.  I "might" spray them with a light water resistant thing, but generally, I do nothing.
Or they'll just avoid talking to me. Nah, they like listening to my BS, for the most part, but they like the MMA talk and training more than the clothes, for the most part.  A right bunch of jocks.
