FCL is thicker (2mm) for sure and needs a lot more break in period than FW rebels (1.3mm). But surprisingly, FW rebels is stiffer leather yet very comfortable out of the box. Rolls coming in very fast.
While both fit great on me, FW rebels is just a better pattern overall.
Thank you! Glad you share my thoughts on the leather of this jacket. It only gets better with each wear :) the pattern is also quite versatile in terms of accommodating different body types and to wear on different occasions I think.
Thank you. I just think it is bit short by few cm, especially on sides when worn unzipped. Also, it may not look from pics, but shoulder feels bit tighter for this style.
Color is true seal brown. Gives reddish tones in brought sun light, but looks dark brown under room lighting.
@Infinitum and @Leatherbirdsoul or guys who want to reply your sticker shock thoughts, just move on if you are not interested. Or, Reach out to OP if you are skeptical on his pricing or his perspective. Size 44 La Breas are not commonly available everywhere, and usually are 10% more expensive...
