@Understatesman I think the jacket looks great. The only thing I’d change is the body length. I prefer shorter jackets (not SLP-cropped though, but IMO Falcon’s standard lenghts are too long, and I’m fairly average at 5’11) because a) at some point it starts looking like a leather blazer b) makes legs look shorter and IMO long legs > long torso and c) hips are wider (unless beer belly) and to account for that either you make the jacket a hourglass shape (not good unless you don’t mind it looking feminine) or boxier.

This is purely personal preference though. Shoulders etc is more objective and it looks good.

@Understatesman I think the jacket looks and fits great. But of course I understand that everyone has their own personal preferences regarding the fit. But from this outsider's perspective, it looks to be pretty much perfection.

Hey guys, can you help me out with something?

Check out this page: https://falcongarmentsco.com/product/a2-wool/

Should look like this on load:
View attachment 1092453


One of customers is having trouble viewing the right side of the page (not showing up). He's tried on PC and Mac and various browsers and it seems to only work on Edge for him.

I've reached out to about 10 people with various browsers and operating systems, and it's working completely fine for them.

So I'm thinking it might be a network issue for this one individual.

Anyways, just let me know what you viewed it on and if the whole page is loading or not. Thanks!

Loads.

Thanks everyone, for the most part I agree it fits really well and the thing's I've pointed out fit-wise (sleeve length and body length) are ultimately very minor. Still feels a bit too "baby's first perfecto" for me. Does lambskin actually ever break in and reach a point of looking less new?

I recall an Armani moto I had for years that ultimately did, but a large part of that was the fact that I caught got in the rain walking from the East Village to the Financial District in NYC late one night and didn't know how to care for leather at the time. So I just let it air dry.

The gloss definitely fades with wear and time in the elements. If you're feeling ballsy and want to speed up the process, you can hop in the shower with it and then let air dry.

Huh. Will that limit the creasing I'd ultimately set into the leather if I rather let things evolve naturally? I like creasing.

My best guess is that it will not affect creasing.

Daniel has washed his jackets in the past and they all look more worn and creased than mine.

So I had an interesting thing happen while wearing this jacket earlier tonight. Was at a local mall, specifically Macy's walking around sipping my Starbucks and trying to locate a couple of friends I was going to meet-up with, when a sales woman working there walked by then mentioned over her shoulder that she liked my outfit. I wasn't sure she was talking to me since she was already 10+ feet past me, but upon looking over my shoulder she was still staring in my direction smiling. So I thanked her.

I was just wearing some brown CXL Viberg service boots, black denim jeans, a black tshirt and charcoal hoodie under my Falcon DR2 (or whatever it is). So yeah, a compliment and no doubt it was because of the jacket. So that helps me make a little progress towards keeping it. Never been complimented by a stranger on whatever I was wearing like that. Actually, I take that back. A sales guy at Neiman Marcus once mentioned that my TOJ minimalist DR was very cool, too.

Hmmm, maybe I can pull off DRs better than I thought.
