I was torn between the dark maple and the redwood. I think the dark maple is more versatile than the redwood so I went for it. I figured with it being my first really nice jacket l would want to have a more options when wearing it. But that redwood looks really slick.
I'm new to the hobby. I ordered a Vanson Oxford in dark maple bainbridge in November. While I've been waiting I picked up a used Vanson model e and just ordered a five star in whiskey hh. I think I need to chill out a bit.
