1) Those tweed Hertling pants are *INSANE* The fabric is from Magee in Scotland, and Julie only used it to create vests for Ben Silver. It's super heavyweight and beautiful. If you have a grey or camel sportcoat, they'll be your best friend on the coldest days. They'll never have any fabric like this again.
Thanks for the hype! If I lived somewhere colder they would never have gone up for sale, but they went the whole winter without making it out of the closet so I am begrudgingly passing them on to someone who will make better use of them.

Absolutely! Some Walt 36 fan of tweed and being warm AF should definitely grab those, they're incredible.

True story: Julie Hertling wouldn't actually let us use that fabric for years. Always said it's "too freaking thick for normal pants"

Which might be true. But it's not too freaking thick for EXCEPTIONAL pants.

Oh man, these bring back some great memories. Two notes on them!

1) Those tweed Hertling pants are *INSANE* The fabric is from Magee in Scotland, and Julie only used it to create vests for Ben Silver. It's super heavyweight and beautiful. If you have a grey or camel sportcoat, they'll be your best friend on the coldest days. They'll never have any fabric like this again.

2) That Cafe Racer is from Thedi Leathers in Greece and it's freaking amazing. The rear vent zips are bad ass. Will fit an Epaulet large well and that's a great price.
The leather and detailing are top notch. I put this out as a feeler and if it doesn’t work out, I’m determined to drop 10 lbs in the next couple months so it will fit again!

I have a barely worn (4-5x) Tab Collar Cafe Racer Horsehide Jacket (size 40) in black available for sale. Unfortunately my broad shoulders plus a few extra lbs have led this to sit in my closet this past few years.

$600 shipped

Here are Epaulet pictures, I can post pictures of the actual jacket later tonight for anyone interested.

Relisting this and using Jay's photos because I'm lazy. Haven't worn it and I think the sleeve pocket on the arm is bothering me, looking for a more minimal look. Will let it go for what I paid for it, which was $335 shipping included to US or Canada.
Bump, $300 including shipping. Get those sweet sweet dopamine hits while locked down.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
