    Just wanted to post some updates at the roughly one year mark. The first few pics show how well the jacket is draping, I'm very happy with how the hide has broken in. A decent amount of the base coat is starting to show through the black. This jacket has started graining up really nicely, particularly on the left shoulder. This jacket doesn't get nearly enough wear, what with the general Texas climate and overly provisioned stable of jackets, but this was my first real leather jacket so it holds a special place. Really a fan of the clean single yoke back, and sort of weights the jacket visually in the shoulders.

    Absolutely killer man. That jacket is perfect, the fit is perfect. Couldn’t possibly be improved upon!

    He's a great dog. I've also been taking care of my parents two dogs for the last three months while they are in India--so much work but all the walking means lots of time in leather jackets so I cant complain too much. Plus all that fetch does wonders for the elbow creases...

    That is a great looking jacket. I have a Sheene in Vicenza and I love it but that heavy black horsehide is particularity delicious.

    Nothing else to add apart from what's already been said. It's great to see a jacket with some actual wear on it. More threads/updates like this please!

    You continue to do well with this CXL FQHH jacket. I feel your pain regarding the hot Texas weather as I live less than 200 miles from you, straight north. My only CXL FQHH jacket is my Teamster that has broken in similarly to yours.

    The heat is running on longer this year but it seems were starting to get jacket weather in the evenings. Cant wait to need a jacket all day long.

    I see on page 2 that you spec'ed this:
    -Interior and Exterior Kidney panel

    But, I don't see an external kidney panel. Did you change that spec? And, does the jacket have an internal kidney panel?

    Yeah I ultimately left out the external kidney but the jacket does have an internal one. I think the internal one will prevent a lot of wear on the lining, especially on a closer fitting jacket.

    What is the difference between the V yoke and the western single point? Which one's on Highwayman?

    ^^That's the same standard V yoke that's on the Highwayman model. Just do be aware that the Premier fit Highwayman has a little different and more distinct V-yoke.
