-I'm a big CXL fan and the leather (on mine) looks good
-Fits well for me - I especially like the waist taper
-I'm a fan of the overall style. Some have commented that it's a bit too "dad's leather jacket" for them, but I like the simplicity. I'd last about two seconds in a motorcycle before I crashed and killed myself, so I feel like an ass walking around in something like a cafe racer.
-Big fan of the Talon zipper
-Some were worried about the one piece back and the effect on fit; I have no issues with the fit and like the aesthetics, so it's a positive for me
Stuff I'm not crazy about, but I knew/expected going in:
-Would have liked thicker stitching. I don't think it's going to be a durability issue, just an aesthetic preference of mine
-Lining doesn't seem substantial enough vs the leather. Or maybe needs more attachments points inside - just feels loose inside the jacket. Have the same issue with my lined chore coat, so this wasn't a surprise to me. Very substantial leather and zipper and I'm not sure the stitching and lining are an appropriate match, but time will tell
-Button cuffs - style wouldn't have been my first choice, but wasn't a deal breaker for me
-I'd like an extra inch on the sleeves, but I have long arms and have this issue with everything, so I can't really knock Gustin here
-While I'm happy with the leather on MINE, the pics that a few others have posted leave me feeling like I dodged a bullet. Knowing what I know now, would I order again and take the chance? Honestly can't say for sure
-I expected the CXL to be waxier. In fact, it's really not waxy at all, and there's no pull up to it. I'm debating whether to give the whole thing a light coat of Saphir Creme Cuirs Gras
-The leather looped around the bottom of my zipper is really tight up against the zipper, which makes it hard to get started/fully unzip. Not the end of the world and I'm sure it'll stretch out, but I do wonder if it'll end up tearing over time (even it it did, wouldn't really be noticeable). This might be unique to my jacket, as the sample pics show more space here
-The edge of the leather on the inside by the zippers is really noticeable when you're putting your hands in your pockets. I'm really nitpicking here. I'm sure it'll lessen over time as the jacket softens up, and I'm not really sure how this would've been avoided, but it's not something I've noticed on other leather jackets. Overall just gives me a bit of a feeling of "this was a company's first try at a leather jacket and they still have some minor details to iron out". Speaking of which....
-This jacket is BEGGING for a two way zipper! This is the only negative that actually bothers me on mine. It's longer in the body than most leather jackets and I already mentioned the taper - both are positives for me, but as a result, sitting down with this thing zipped is an interesting experience.
TL, DR: If you like the style, the measurements work for you, and you're willing to roll the dice on the leather (or the possibility of some loose grain doesn't bother you), buy it. I've been looking for a leather jacket for a while, and I'm really looking forward to breaking mine in. I like the fit, I like the leather, and I like the style - any negatives I see are of far less importance in comparison. And Gustin, get some two way zippers on the next release.
