    Really beautiful hide. The cordovan is really growing on me.

    Haha, I didn't know! But it makes sense...everything about this jacket - pattern, hide, size - seems to match your preferences. Or maybe not, if you sold it (twice?!).

    Yes I did. Best hide Aero ever sent me, hands down. I sold it to Aerofan, bought it back and then sold it to hh. It’s hard to make sense of. It’s a great jacket though, no question about it. ​

    ^^ Yep - very familiar. But I'm pretty "over" half-belts in general, so it goes to another. It's a beast, for sure.

    Great looking jacket!

    Just curious, is there a marked size on it?

    Also, did you measure the hem with the belts fully loosened?

    Having perused this forum for some time I’ve developed a wish that I was ton312’s size so I could buy his cast offs. This is no exception. Crazy amazing. The jacket seems to fit you like a glove too, a really heavy, beautiful glove.

    Why in the hell did I click on this thread again. TFLs version of self-flagellation.

    I’ve had the exact same thought myself many times, i’m just a hair larger than him although not nearly as muscular. On the other hand this has probably saved me a couple grand by now because otherwise I would’ve bought everything he ever put up for sale!

    I am on a run. This makes number three of the jackets I have hanging on my jacket rack that passed through ton's hands, although this is the first commissioned by the master. I am lighter framed and tend to wear my jackets looser than ton does and this one will be on the larger side for me with should work fine for such a heavy weighted beast. maybe I drop in on Stu and see if he is up to going boar hunting with wooden lances if they still got any wild bores in New York

    I think it’ll fit you perfectly Jon. It was a trim fit for me. I’m eager to hear your thoughts!

    I was thinking you may be all set for jousting if you get tired of boar hunting. Sooo many uses for such a nice jacket.
