Tech start-up. It's all a gamble really, might as well gamble on yourself.
The leather on the newest edition of the jacket's probably the best I've seen. I don't like the addition of canvas, though, as well as the buttoning system.
The orange is actually a nod to the original painted hood on the jacket it draws inspiration from. Originally it's a really bright yellow, so that it'd be easier to spot it when the wearer was lost at sea (or elsewhere). This one's an overpainting, and it's supposed to peel off pretty easily, to give it a distressed look.So you think a size up would work for someone with slim jeans and even skinnier legs?

Wish this was the navy one. Excellent-looking jacket, nonetheless.
