    Inspired by other members generosity and seeing how 5 Star is taking off, I think this could be a useful thing to do. I have two jackets that I’d like to see folks use as fit jackets, to be passed around the forum and maybe help people guide their own projects. All that is required is the shipping fee. Let’s call it $15 each. If you are outside conus we can figure it out.
    The first is the first jacket I had Shawn build for me. Didn’t work out for size or style. Tagged a size 46” it fits more like a larger 44”. Seal brown steer with red drill liner:

    The second is this red russet goat Californian. I absolutely love the style but the color just isn’t for me. I’ve tried to convince myself otherwise and have failed. I’ve already got this one queued up for a rebuild in seal brown.

    Ideally these will be passed around to multiple members. That said if someone gets ahold of one and really loves it, maybe that’s the end of the line. If not, bump this thread and let these guys travel. I’ve been pretty fortunate with jackets of late and I also need the space for incoming stuff. Hopefully this takes off and people can eliminate some of the guess work out of their builds! Or....just wear a nice jacket and pass it along the same way when the mood strikes!

    That's super nice. I'll just happily watch these go around. The russet jacket looks really great.

    Both Stars are moving to new galaxies. I’m looking forward to seeing how this progresses, not only with these jackets but with future builds as well. I love being a part of this great community!

    You should get a kick back from Shawn at Five Star for every jacket that sells as a result of this generous initiative.

    Dead set legend! Old Aussie saying.

    LOL. That would be great but if I’ve learned anything at all from my time here...jacket Karma is a thing and I need to pay it forward!

    Mate, you are such a cool and generous dude! the TFL is so much better a place with you as an illustrious member and owes you a lot, like the makers you patronise. Well done!!

    Daaaaamn, how did I sleep on this? I would have loved to have a shot at the Californian. If my current 5* order works out, that will be next in line to order.
    Awesomely generous of you!

    I hope these jackets do in fact travel the world! Wear them, get sick of them, pass them along! Will also be a good litmus test for how they hold up!

    Very good idea and very generous of you, Tony! I‘ve been to many forums (clothing, watches) in the past 10 years but this is the only one I‘m still an active member just because of the members here! There is only one bad thing about TFL...getting too many inspirations for new jackets...

    Just to add to the others....would be helpful to lounge members, and 5-star, to have the "guinea pigs" leave honest (i.e. constructive) reviews of the jackets. I've looked at them for some time but always hesitated due to lack of track-record in the jacket-junkie community. I'd love to hear honest opinions.
