    Today was delivered a LW Goatskin Seal Brown A2 w/Rust Knits. Everything was done on the phone and via email with Stuart and I'm very satisfied. That said, after reading posts on FL, I made it a point not to pull his tail. Here's two pix

    IXL, You predicted this!:eusa_clap No I didn't win the lottery nor am I in a manic phase. Just call it starting to collect Social Security while still holding down a day job (plus I lost some weight). I always dug "outerware;" but never had anything of quality. Now I figure: whatever good years I have left, I'll spend wearing nice clothes, especially jackets.

    Good looking jacket, and fit couldn't be better. I can tell that you are happy with everything by the grin best illustrated in the top picture.

    Thanks. I know it's the right size because Stuart sent a 38 Russet Horse to try on for size. He was pretty sure I'd be a 40 and it indeed was too small, so I sent it back and he made the size 40. Here's a pic I sent to LW showing where the 38 pinched. P.S. This daytime pic shows truer colors. That's a truer rust knit color and LW Russet Horsehide looks like a milk chocolate Hershey Bar.

    As posted above, that grin says it all!!! With that jacket, you just might have to move someplace with a longer "cool weather" season. :)

    Don't worry. I'm walking down the street wearing fourteen layers and somebody is coming the other way in shorts and a tank top.

    I have a recollection that Stuart made the statement that the A-2 is a summer jacket but doubt that Stuart or anyone else would wear an A-2 in Texas in August.

    ...or Oklahoma....

    That's good news about the weight of the jacket. I was afraid Vespizzare was going to have to move!

    You don't need pictures, Vespizzare , the name Santa Monica alone makes me think of blue skies, crashing waves and long sandy beaches. *stares out at frost-bitten hills and sighs*

    Great looking jacket! LW can't be beat in terms of quality, workmanship and of course their incomparable leather! Enjoy your new jacket.
