  1. We'll put some swatches on order and photograph them when they arrive. We've had renewed interest in this leather, so possibly stocking some colors would be worthwhile. :)

    Thank so much Carrie. I'd be particularly interested in seeing the evergreen. The above hide looks positively amazing.
     
  3. It certainly looks unique and very nice! Interesting process too.
    I am close to ordering a new pair of "sunflower" boots, so the color, along with the green has me intrigued...
    I know it's hard to look at sunflower leather and not think 70's, but that's OK...I kinda dig it (again).

  6. I'm extremely pleased to say that the red fox Sunburst is mine. Carrie's photos do great justice to the colour, which is like honey. Thanks a heap to Carrie for her great customer service, I've been after a Sunburst for some time and it's a beautiful jacket. Medium weight cowhide, it's supple and yet still quite substantial. I'm battling a cold (yep, winter is here in the southern hemisphere) but while try to get some fit pics done for everyone tonight.

    A full blown pictorial if you'd be so kind. Gorgeous jacket Benny. I can't wait to see more of it!
     
  8. I knew you'd like it Tony! I was hoping to have pics done already but it's dark when I leave for work in the morning and dark when I get home, and I really wanted to try to capture the colour in natural light. I will do my best to get some decent pics tonight. Carrie was extremely helpful in suggesting different things, such as nickel hardware as apposed to brass because brass is too much with the red fox leather and so on. End result is an even better jacket than I could have envisioned by myself. So all kudos to her. Oh, and by the way, it's a Julie Leitch-made jacket!

  9. Here are some shots of the red fox Sunburst. I'm going to thoroughly enjoy molding it to my form; it's not stiff like horsehide, per se, but it will still need a good breaking in period to sit right.

    Just got home form work, unfortunately it was dark outside so couldn't use natural light but the pics still pick up the rich tones of the honey-brown colour.
     
  10. I went for brown cotton drill lining (it doesn't get that cold here, not like in the USA or England). Also a photo of the wrist straps, which I really dig.

    Both me and the jacket look lopsided in this photo, and yet I hadn't been to the pub . . . must've been a long day!

    Oh man this is spectacular!! Needs its own thread!! The hide is phenomenal and the fit, cut and detail are perfect. Really outstanding Benny. My mind is racing on this one. If there's a better color leather for a jacket I haven't seen it. Damn man. Congrats!!

    The silver nickel hardware against that honey colored leather is just it man. God damn. I need to leave this place.
     
  13. No doubt about it, this forum is a dangerous place! Thanks for the compliments pal, kudos are all to Carrie on this one. Midday temperatures are okay here but in the morning, or when the sun starts sinking in the afternoon, it gets cold, and this jacket is gonne be gettin' a major workout this winter.
