Zipper pull.

I wanted something more relaxed, but still historically rooted.  I loved the photos of the Real McCoys Oklahoma, but I was concerned about the deerskin.  While I wanted a more relaxed hide, I did not want something thin or lightweight like my Menlo.  Rather, I wanted a hearty and rugged hide akin to a good horse, without the rigidity.  After much contemplation, I took the plunge and went with the RMC Oklahoma sight unseen.  I own a RMC Buco J-100 and the quality is extraordinary, so I was confident that the Oklahoma would not let me down.

The Real McCoys Oklahoma far exceeded my expectations.  First and foremost, the deerskin is indescribably incredible.  It is as rugged and hearty as my HH jackets, yet relaxed and pliable . . . exactly what I was looking for.  The grain and texture of the deerskin is exquisite.  I am awestruck by this leather.  Likewise, RMC’s quality and craftsmanship is superlative.  The stitching is stellar.  The corduroy lined cuffs are a great detail.  My only gripe is the 1930s Talon zipper . . . while it is historically meaningful, it is not the easiest to operate (many thanks to those who advised me on the zipper – I applied some candle wax and that appears to help).

Exactly!  Way out of place on that jacket.

Of course, all chaps are assless. If they weren't, they would be pants.

I've never gotten so many compliments on anything I've owned. Hope to end up with another one of your castoffs.

What's up with Rick pricing this season? Prices came down for awhile when some pieces started being made in Moldova, now they're back up and higher than ever...
post #11144 of 12276
Can't say quality since it seems there are good and bad quality every season (though dominated with bad quality than good) but maybe pricing on the leather he gets? Maybe it changes every season? Just guessing.
post #11145 of 12276
Could just be observational bias too, I don't check retail pricing every season. In AW 2012, leathers were a pretty reasonable $2000. Went to a preview the other day and saw the leathers you posted (the full grain Stooges was very nice), but prices began at $3000 and went to $5000+. To be fair, in 2009, prices were around there.

This is probably better suited towards a larger discussion towards pricing, but it's disconcerting being priced so far out of brands I'm interested in - PH, A1923, BBS, MA+ etc. have been raising prices consistently every season. Can't blame them, people are obviously buying buying. I thought Rick had made an effort to keep prices a bit lower with a production shift but here we are again. Oh well, still looks cool!!!
