Oh jackets are out! They look awesome.

 

Only quest, do you think the way the leather drapes in this image is a sign of the high arm holes persisting on the jacket cut?

Pricing is better than expected - $499!

The #8 chromexcel looks BEAUTIFUL. I've been burned too many times on sizing with Gustin, though, so I'll probably just opt for a Schott when I'm ready for a leather jacket.

I've got one of the truckers from G. I'm going to email them and see what they say about the leather fit vs the trucker fit

Thoughts anyone on the splotchy color on the natural jacket?  Is this something that evens out over time?  Am I the only one turned off by it?  I think the dublin one also suffers from this, but the natural is the color I was most drawn to.

It will likely even out, but in doing so, it will become darker.

I suspect the people who opt for the natural version are looking for this. 

 

Personally, I like it. I could understand why it's not everyone's cup of tea though

"L1" would imply that "Lmore" is yet to come. Which is very cool given how well these have turned out.

 

I love the design. Very subtle, minimal, lets the leather speak for itself. The price is outstanding. I'm planning to buy one that's as tight as I can manage and to let it break in over time.

that same pic turned me off from the jackets but not bc of the Natural CXL color but rather bc the back of the jacket has no shape.  just a straight tube....

not a fan of the cut.  

 

i know some people prefer the solid piece of leather...i just wish it had some shape.

That might be related to how he is standing too.  I have shirts that have plenty of taper, but if I stand a certain way, I can make the backs look tube-like.  The description says "plenty of taper", though if anyone is emailing them with questions, a waist measurement might be good to know.

It will not even out.  This is a famous pull up leather.  Under tensile and compressive stresses the leather will form lighter and darker areas, respectively.

its not the light and dark areas that bother me in and of themselves, more the fact that they look "forced".  Instead of looking broken in, it looks like its faking the broken in look.  Will it start to look more genuine over time?

@Gustin - jackets look great. double zippers in the future would be aces though

I've got few distressed leather jackets and they are filled with a lot of wax so they splotch up like that (but more subtle).  That's probably one of most splotchy I've seen.  It could look neat if it was all over but a more subtle.  Hopefully it's just blown out with the lighting.
