In case anyone is interested in a Donkey sample jacket at a great price: http://www.alexanderleathers.com/sale/donkey-jacket.html Besides, I was wondering whether anyone has any experience with waxing (Cabourn) cotton jackets?

Alexander Leathers was established as a spin out of Aero Leather (I think the owners and the manager had some problems with each other in the end).
