Hi Terry, I've been binge watching all your half belt jacket videos on youtube (I'm a big fan of the California and the Monarch of Milwaukee jackets). Since you have had multiple half belts, do you think that there is an ideal or even minimum weight or metric thickness for a jacket like that, like 3 oz or more? Also, do you have a preference of Steerhide vs Horse?
DUHHH....Brainfart here. My phone wasn't showing all pics but I see the listing on my computer and I see the measurements. Please disregard prior queries. I posted the question via eBay as well. My bad.
I had already ordered a (black) Suburban a few years back and have 2 other pre-owned Suburban (a green one, and a brown one with a wool lining). I posted some pics of them. I’ve just ordered a brown (full bore) Test with brass hardware, as you well know. Thanks again Terry for your help. It is really appreciated.
I’d like to take the time to thank you for your videos on the LW Test jacket you’ve posted on YouTube. I’ve watched each and every one of them last spring and finally decided to order a black one (the "full bore" as you call it). Despite the fact that the lining was dark brown instead of black and that the main zipper was a C&C (the pull seems much smaller) instead of a Talon, I like the jacket very much.
Hey there! I'm on the hunt for a walter dyer cafe racer, but before I buy one I'm trying to find as many pics as I can of them. From reading the forums I understand that you either own, or have owned one. Would you mind sending me any pics you may have of it? I'd be very grateful!
I might be interested in selling. It's a size. 42 or 43
I'll send measurements but it's the wife's birthday gotta go.
Thinking about cancelling my planned DD order which i haven't paid for and getting a Himel but man those $$$$.
I'd like to get $800 for mine. Think I paid $1200 or $1250 or so.
