Do you have the full measurements for that one? I am pretty sure it would fit me...
Same as the all weather. I don’t have it off hand but you can see the full spectrum in that thread.
Far out man that jacket is almost too good to be true! The price for that build is crazy!
Do you recall what you paid???
The hide was 3.5 oz Havana brown CXL steerhide and I think I paid around $650 including shipping. They actually shipped the leather to me first and then sent an invoice a week or two later!
Incredible all around!
They already added his jackets to their stock offerings!
I will go for red russet then as I was leaning towards it, just wanted your opinion
As for leather, it would be between 40 - 50 sq/ft for a jacket as far as I understand. I do have 100sq/ft of 2.5 - 3oz navy CXL that I toyed with sending to Shawn. But I didn't feel confident enough to do so...especially not for a first jacket. Although the smoke in that hide would look stellar.
Yeah, hold the blue in case there is an oversight with the first one.
Once you’ve got everything dialed in...Go for the Midnight Rambler!
This build is a testament to ton's expertise in classic leather jackets and 5* skill in executing the patterns when given the right visuals and direction.
And it looks like the red russet goat is the right hide, stiff with no sponginess. Good stuff, congrats.
@ton312 which thread colour did you use here?
I asked for "match to hide"...appears to be a Khaki color.
ton312 - your work with Shawn has been a true inspiration. The fit and detail you have been able to get from 5* is amazing. I have my first 5* coming tomorrow. Just a basic black moto jacket to dial in the fit, then I'm jumping back in for a second one with a bit more detail. Great work!
I'm thinking about a black CR style as well, with brass zips. I'm interested to see what you get. Please post pics.
Will do - I should have it tomorrow.
