    Very nice. Can we see a $475?

    The money goes towards the cost of housing and feeding families who have to travel to take care of a child's medical crisis. Many of the families, particularly in rural areas, are those with high risk premature babies. The stress of loss of income and the cost of medical treatment is compounded. The Ronald McDonald House is staffed mostly by volunteers and helps to alleviate that stress.

    The "standard" eather is a good 2.75 ounce calfskin - substantial, but also quite soft and supple, with a fine grain that willl come out with wear. Luxire had the leather specially tanned for this project.

    I realize that this is a sensitive topic, so please let me know if you'd rather not comment, but I was wondering if you could compare these jackets (particularly the double rider) with the SF x Thurston Brothers Daredevil jacket.

    I like both quite a bit. The Daredevil is more "tough", in that the leather is heavier, with that cool and characteristic Vanson leather and super chunky chrome hardware that is characteristic of the brand. The ones done with Luxire are more "tailored, for lack of a better word. The shoulders do not use lapped seams, for example, and the details on the "standard" models are fewer and more streamlined. The leather is a bt more matte witha finer grain, slightly lower weight leather, and less in your face hardware.

    @LA Guy
    Can the winner make out a check from his company directly to the foundation and reference Styleforum's fundraiser in the memo? (For tax purposes)

    Unfortunately, no. It would make logistics nearly impossible. We've been meaning for a couple of years to set up some sort of foundation, but haven't had the time to do so.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
