    The exchange rate versus the US$ has not been this good in many decades.

    Post Thedi Leather Jacket Photos Here........

    This was my Thedi the first day after I bought it. I don't have any recent pics now that it's a little more broken in. It is definitely wearable. Yes it looks expensive. But, the key is it fits. That's number #1 for any clothes. I'm only 5'7" 165. I can't wear things that are too big or I...

    Sweaters?

    I probably should also mention that the owner will either be very responsive on email, answering questions and asking for your details or completely silent for a few days. She didn't get back to me right away, but then asked for measurements, colors, etc. and needed a prompt reply. Then, she...

    Sweaters?

    A lot that advertise hand knit are actually hand loomed. Die Workwear did a long article on the differences.

    Sweaters?

    A couple winters ago I bought a rollneck from Ó’Maille in Galway Ireland. They make the most traditional Aran sweater around, with hand knitting done by women in their homes. Each sweater is MTO (a true cottage industry). I went with oatmeal, but many of the other colors look great too. I think...

    Post Thedi Leather Jacket Photos Here........

    I usually find black leather too stark, but this is really nice. It's probably the first black jacket I've ever been drawn to immediately. And, the collars are great. When naked, the collar has the perfect roll too. Just perfect.

    New Thedi Memphis- Fit Check!

    I think if it feels too tight under the arms it will always be something that bothers you. Sure it will mold, but it will never expand. If you lift or gain any weight by getting older, it will be too tight and you will never reach for it. Get a bit more comfort. It's worth the $350 and 3-4...

    New Thedi Memphis- Fit Check!

    Hard to say with the length bc you didn't show a pic with it open to see where your belt line falls. I agree you should let the chest out a little. The top pic looks uncomfortable under the arms. Also, you may need more than 1" if you want close the back in a static standing position. A key...

    Thedi sizing.

    Call Carrie and get a fit jacket in the model you want. You can either keep the fit jacket from her stock if you like the way it fits, or you can get it custom made by Thedi with any changes you need. I did this. Based on my general body measurements Carrie sent me a fit jacket in the style...

    Thedi Hektor Half Belt

    There is also Espresso buffalo, which is more chocolate brown than reddish brown. It's also hand waxed and reliced, however it's not hand dyed as far as I know. It has gradations of color as well.

    Looks great. Love the color of the shearling collar. I would worry about cream getting dirty. Also, it sometimes looks too light next to darker colors. But, that medium brown looks perfect, especially with the brass hardware. Just a great combination.

    Thedi Hektor Half Belt

    It's veg tanned. I should have said it's Espresso - that's the official color name, considering how many brown colors Thedi works with. I was looking for something chocolate brown and this color nailed it. I think it's the same model. Thurston calls it the Niko. Thedi only uses a multi digit...

    Same Jacket Different Color Which One Would You Choose

    I always prefer a rich brown jacket to black. Brown just has more depth and goes with more. Black always seems harsh to me.

    Help needed choosing the leather

    I think Aero has a russet horse color that looks similar to the Hyundai, but not in smooth calf. I assume the car seats are calf because they are so grain and blemish free, although they could be corrected grain/sanded to make them more uniform. It looks like fine shoe leather rather than...
