I just always assumed FCL used Shinki. They may not use it exclusively but they definitely have used Shinki.

The Roberts is a repro of Vanson Race JacketCA harvest japan has the Roberts available "1.3㎜ thick, fine Nordic horsehide" that sounds neat.
Jacket really reminds me of an RO intarsia though which is most likely why I like it.

Himeji huh? Can I get a jacket with the Himeji mascot on it?Shinki use horsehide from Poland for tanning. Also Shinki is based in Himeji, although there are other tanneries there too. I don't know if FCL uses Shinki or one of the other tanneries there (maybe Kiya or someone knows).
This looks great. Curious what the difference is between this and getting something straight from Aero; I have something similar on the way from them in natural CXLFinally pulled the trigger after having too much time at home on this thread. Was going back and forth between this jacket which I’ve had my eye on for a few months and a black horsehide dr. Aero for Thurston Bro’s Buco J100 in natural Vicenza. First legit leather I’ve owned and excited to see how the patina develops. Nothing spectator allowed right out the box but last picture is the same leather after a year of occasional wear that I found on Instagram. Overall like the fit.

don’t think there should be much difference, think they’re just a vendor that has a handful of stock on hand and do custom fittings as well. Thurston has some photos of the natural cxl on their Instagram. Color looks great, just wanted something lighter in weightThis looks great.
