    Straight out of the box I can say that the fit and feel is perfect. I usually wear 38 with Aeros but because of the slimmer fit I went for 40, with added width to the shoulders, 1" off from the hem of the jacket and 1" off lenght wise. Just to make it a bit more V shaped than normal PHWM.

    I chose Cxl Steer because of the heft and IMO better look when it ages compared to the horse.
    It weights around 2,8kg.

    With the details I went for the Harris tweed lining with cotton drill sleeves. Brown corozo buttons and brown contrast stiching. And lastly double-D buckels on the sides. Which I think look better and work better than the usual. The Hookless zip was changed to Talon for the reasons that many of us know too well.

    All and all everything seems to be perfect, thanks to Julie Leitch.

    Mega perfect! Don't think I've ever seen one fit so great. It fits you and it suits you. I keep forgetting what a beautiful jacket PHWM is.

    It really is a beauty, but the lenght have to be perfect. If too long it ends up looking silly IMO.

    Agreed w/ regards to the Highwayman family. Too long throws the intended proportions off.

    That collar is so much cooler than the regular Highwayman collar.

    But, man: CXL Steer and Harris Tweed?1? I know from many a moshpit that you guys from Finland are nuts, but this sure is some choice for a summer jacket…! :)

    You may have gotten the best batch of black cxl Ive seen on this forum. For real it looks incredible. All of it looks great fit, style, collar...but Im mesmerized by how good this cxl steer looks.

    Nicest HWM I've seen. The leather and fit are spot-on. As somebody who's tried and failed with the HWM, that almost makes me want to have a second go.
