    I know that feels bro.

    I was driving late one night by dodger stadium switching lanes and as I looked back at the road checking my blind sight i saw something go under my car and the jolt slowed me down instantly 10mph. I pulled over when I could and looked underneath from the front and couldn't really see anything though I didn't have a flashlight. When I got home I inspected from the rear and there was a fucking crushed opossum wedged above my exhaust piping and the chassis. It smelled like wild boar bbq sizzling on the piping. The next day I took it to the dealer and asked my buddy complaining of the smell to have one of the techs look at it pretending I didn't know what it was LMAO.

    Lovely stroll to work this morning. But somehow my Drake's white linen pocket square fell out, probably blown away by the wind into the river :(

    Morning soundtrack. The new album is really good, btw, but now that's over and I'm on to the oldies.

    It appears to be fall 2015. I've never seen tags of the newest fit though. Older versions had comm to denote the season.

    Do you happen to know how heavy the leather is? Wanting a fairly heavy duty one (that one I bought from you awhile ago @baltimoron was a bit too big)

    No experience sorry. From what I can recall though, some of the newer fall versions have a quilted lining inside, so they might be warmer but not sure if that's what you mean by heavy duty.

    dunno if you need more pictures but this might help

    While we're on the topic of leather jackets, I just wanted to give a heads-up here on the SW&D side that we're doing MTO leathers with our new leather jacket maker James Grose. This is something we offered at the Proper Kit trunk show this past weekend, but now we're hoping up orders online until EOD Sunday. I figured I should let you guys here who might not follow our thread know about it.

    We had briefly talked about them earlier but here's the gist: British leather jacket company, taken over by a Japanese crew 2 years ago who updated things with some cool leathers and styles, but still made in their East London workshop. It's nice stuff, and selecting a leather jacket maker is not something we rushed into (as you can tell by it taking us a few years).

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    All of the details are here in our thread, and I'll spoiler that content below so as not to fill up this thread.

    JAMES GROSE LEATHER MTO


    There is a lot to unpack here, so bear with me. I'll try to keep things as simple as possible in this SF post, as the bulk of the information is on the order pages.

    What you need to know before you begin:

    • Three styles: "Manila" double rider, "Kansan" band-collar double rider, and "Clubman" cafe racer
    • Sizes from 34 to 46, although we only have measurements from 36 to 44 for each of the three styles.
    • Two horse options - the two that we already have.
    • Two cow suede options - the two that we already have.
    • Two soft lambskin options
    • Nine cow leather options of various colors and types
    • Many, many linings including tartans, quilted ones (!) and sherpa (!!)
    • Some of these leathers are very limited in quantity (for example the colorful cow leather options are limited to 3-4 pieces at most) but we'll keep things updated as to what is no longer available.


    We're keeping pricing very simple, with half now and half later. The horse and cow are the same price, and the suede and lambskin are the same price. Be sure to use code PREORDER15 for 15% off your pre-order.


    Click here for the horse or cow order page, and click here to see swatches


    Click here for the suede or lambskin order page, and click here to see swatches


    Some food for thought from the JAGROSE lookbook but I'd love to hear what you guys think would be a good makeup.

    Brown horse clubman with quilted lining? Brown suede kansan with sherpa lining? Blue lambskin Manila?

    At this point I wonder if my Alden tankers are paying me as they are 6ish years old and have been my only boot. I'm glad I got black as its gone well with my changes in style...

    The pricing on those James Grose is fantastic...

    What do you prefer, the horse or the waxy cowhide?

    While I'll probably want a hefty boot to go with the insurrection, I have to give a shout out to the new Vans "Lite" series. Got a pair of the monochrome dawn blue slip-ons. They are like walking on marshmellows. Very comfy.

    Vans have always been uncomfortable for me so this is very appealing. Thanks for posting as I'd have never found out about them otherwise.

    Still feel terrible about this election, so I went into CE.

    Yup, nope. *retreats back into cozy, warm womb of random fashion thoughts*
