    I bought big7's Sheene from the classifieds. It fits perfectly.

    I don't have any fit pics right now.

    I've been playing with my phone camera settings to get the best color accuracy, and these are the closest I've been able to get, at least as the color is replicated on the screen of my phone. It's a bit more maroon in good light than it looks here. But these are much closer to reality than the very saturated magentas that typified big7's photos. I couldn't be much happier.

    Stellar pick up! The Sheene is such a great pattern, so easy to wear. I recently got a hooch hauler in cordovan horsehide and it looks pretty similar to this. Fantastic color with a lot of depth and variation, very hard to photograph.

    I'm very busy getting ready for a conference this week, so I hope you can hold out a while.

    I have a few other photos with different white balance settings, none of which are accurate, but man would I like them to be.

    This last one is actually fairly close. But it's actually almost kinda purple-ish red/brown.

    I understand. I’ve been around the block with cordo. I believe there is nothing else like it. It’s the tier above God tier.

    Always nice to p/u a preowned jacket like you did, especially one that fits properly. Unfortunately I only own two Sheenes!

    Is your latest FQHH or Vicenza? Both of mine are Vicenza (russet & black).

    This is CXL FQHH, I'm pretty sure that both Chromexcel and Vicenza Hh are both from the front quarter of the animal.

    I agree. You are getting pretty close with some of those shots Guppy but there is another dimension to cordovan CXL that I think only comes through in person.

    You are correct. I should have stipulated CXL FQHH. In any case your CXL is really nice, a major advantage having much greater water resiatance than Vicenza HH.
