    Field Leathers

    Looks great! I was tempted to order a bone jacket when Greg offered that but I have to save up for some traveling. Great to see the finished product with this color. Curious if you guys know when the "new" pattern went into effect? Is it just a difference of sleeve rotation? I asked for a...

    Schott 641HH size 34 (fits 36, maybe 38)

    I bought this new and have worn it for a number of years. It's well broken in but still tons of life left in it. No unpleasant odors. No holes or cuts in the leather. Just some minor fraying in high wear areas. I love the super grainy leather on one side. The quilted lining is in great shape...

    The link also redirected me to the homepage. But if you search for "blouson les motocyclettistes" then it should come up.

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    For that "collector's item" kind of money, I'd think you'd want to ensure it was the real deal with a label. I imagine there could have been other makers doing this style, so how do you know what you have without a label?

    I was watching that one as it looked like a perfect fit for me. But $5k? Wow. There was no label on it, at least not pictured. Is that typical with Leathertogs?

    Fit check: Aero Highwayman 36

    They do. I should clarify: some of the Aero styles I'm interested in don't seem to have the fit I want. This is mostly based on their "ready to wear" pages that have measurements. But some of it is guesswork without trying something on.

    Fit check: Aero Highwayman 36

    On the 36", everything looks right except for the slight tightness in the chess that others have mentioned. And I expect that's only an issue when fully zipped. You could just go unzipped or half zip most of the time I would think. If you're gong for a trim fit, it may be hard to get that...

    Oof that’s a good scam to get a “real” tracking number. Glad that you got it sorted, and getting an actual person at Paypal is not easy. But at least you got the right outcome.

    This is a good point. A seller can get screwed by an unscrupulous buyer using PP buyer protection. The trust door swings both ways. Start a conversation, get some info, and go for it if it feels good.

    It's a matter of trust. Check the seller's history and reputation on their profile. If still unsure, you could ask for references to previous buyers. Paypal F&F (friends and family) is popular because there are no fees. And also no PayPal buyer protection. If you want the buyer protection, then...

    Ask a Question, Get An Answer About Outerwear

    Yes, this is what I was expecting might happen. Seems like the "tighter" button is not a practical option. So I guess it's mostly for show?

    Ask a Question, Get An Answer About Outerwear

    Could someone please explain button cuffs to me? It seems they almost always have two buttons, I assume to adjust the tightness of the cuff. But I've never seen the tighter button utilized. Is there some other purpose for this second button? Just wondering if I could expect to be able to...

    Field Leathers

    Yeah Greg had said on his stories that there were 4-5 colors he was interested to try. I remember tobacco, sienna, cognac, and bone but might have been one more. I inquired about the bone. He said it was already spoken for but would try and see if they could send him some extra leather for...

    Schott Perfecto 613, Size 38 — $325

    I believe the hardware is nickel plated brass. So if the nickel wears off, it'll show the brass underneath.

    @Canuck Panda do you have a picture of the full FL belt? I like belts with stitched patterns and curious to see the full design.

    What is the purpose of kidney panels? I'm learning there are both internal and external. I assume the internal is to prevent lining wear. So what is the purpose of an external? Just aesthetics?

    Mister Freedom Campus jacket review: A nice jacket with both design flaws and construction defects

    Have you received this Thedi yet? I’d be very interested to see it. I really like the MF Campus design. I’m sure a Thedi version would be a step up in a lot ways.

    Field Leathers

    Strong words, no doubt, but isn't better to get opinions before you make an order? Whether or not you agree with those opinions is your own choice. You gotta go with what feels right for you. I doubt you would receive the same ridicule for side adjusters on a jacket. But re: dreadlocks, a good...

    Field Leathers

    This makes sense. Perhaps I was unfair to Aero. It's not about period correct stubbornness, but ensuring the right proportions. Just wished they had explained to me better. I do still like the Aero IR. Maybe one day I'll try it out as is, big chest and all. The IR collar was another thing Aero...
