^ it won't. That wait time is an anomaly exclusive to us last minute cutoff orderers.

So, not to spam the forum, but I got tracking for my CWU that I ordered sept 9. I'm also very excited. I have a leather boner.

Haha biggrin.gif It is such a good thing as I already am so distracted from studying for other reasons. One more distraction will only cost me all my hard work from the semester :P Hopefully I get it next week when I'm done all exams biggrin.gif

ALAS!!!!

 

Nearly 22 weeks later I finally got my jacket..

 

Murdered out 4 Zip Moto in Black Lamb....

 

After wearing it for an hour...... First impressions....  material... beautiful...buttery soft..

construction.. .flawless....

 

Fit... couple things...

 

Definitely tight in the pits.... not unbearable....but it definitely pulls...don't know if I could get on anymore than a t-shirt underneath...  and don't know if that is gonna stress the area excessively...

 

Everything else seems right..  when I zip it up fully it there is some kind balloon effect going on in the gut/chest... sitting down zipped up is out of the question...

 

Never had a high quality leather so I'm ignorant to how it'll break in/age...

 

Thoughts?

As long as I can lift a can of beer to my mouth I should be alright....

Shoes for the A2 discussion:

I think the 1000 Mile would be great with the A2. I've got some Alden Roys that go real well w/ my brown bomber.

The A2 also works nicely with, in my experience through a few years of shoe choices/price levels here, Clark dbs, brogue boots (sorry drew), derbys--did you see that fit a few pages back w/ the two guys, one in #8 derbys?--and various sneakers. If I had a black A2, I'd wear black derbys a lot.

edit: oh yeah, and my bomber has a similar wrinkle in the back, but it never occurred to me to be bothered by it.

I don't own 1000 mile, but have seen it numerous times before in real life and stock photos.. matter of fact, was seriously considering of purchasing it at one point, but just couldn't get over the ugly metal hooks and the dressy sole. it could be just me, but something about the boots came to me a little weird, as opposed to the praise that goes on in this forum.


but like you said, one of the initial choice I was leaning toward was alden roy boots. similar to wolverine in some ways, but a little more rugged - but i gotta wait couple of months as it is preorder status. I guess same with viberg and dayton boots with production times..

I guess I'll just wear by black derby and clarks for now. I just wanted to see if there were any other brands/style that was worth taking a look.

Man, I've been forced to think a lot about shoes lately. Lack of footwear is killing me. I could wear my white chucks and it'll look passable but I'm thinking:
