RLJULY4 for additional 30% discount on certain RRL items
 Approx $21.
Sounds like I got lucky -- I received my all black CP Achilles today from Dope Factory -- correct shoe and correct size.
 The Freewheelers Guthrie (thick deerskin): 
 Stronghold, in Venice, CA, has an enormous selection of Lewis jackets. The chest patch/label is a deal breaker for me.
  They have a store front in LA, a warehouse elsewhere, and sell through e-bay using several different accounts.  Some are seconds/flawed, but they disclose as such when applicable -- otherwise, they are new w/o tags.  In addition to RRL, they used to have access to Rising Sun jeans at a steep discount.  The store front has mostly mall brands.
 An 8 oz leather jacket is not "thick" . . . it is a suit of armor.  There are lighter uncorrected leathers that are much more wearable.
 "Best in their class" does not equal "best leather" as defined by the leather industry.  Thin, corrected leather is less expensive to purchase as compared to more robust, uncorrected leathers.  Thus, regardless of which is "better" than the other, the cost of materials are less for a thin, corrected leather. 
 Exactly! Moreover, the more robust (e.g., 2oz+) uncorrected leathers are more expensive to purchase, as compared to a thin, corrected leather.
