    Hey guys - I’ll post a proper review and fit pics soon, but my custom shearling racer from Thedi arrived today and I can’t wait to send a couple pictures of this beautiful piece.

    (Disregard the strange carpet. I’m at work.)

    Wow this is so different and interesting. I’ll be honest not as they say “my cup of tea.” Or maybe it’s so new and different I just can’t picture myself in it....yet. I’m sure the TFL effect will kick in and I’ll be wanting one soon ha. But regardless wear this with pride; definitely a standout piece.

    edit: also when you get a chance let’s get a breakdown of the specifics of the leather and shearling.

    Thanks! It's certainly a unique style and finish that's not for everyone. It is new, in that Thedi doesn't even have it in their collection to buy. They posted a picture on Instagram of Theodoros wearing the first one made and I asked him to make me one too. I'll definitely include all the specifics and breakdown in my review. Stay tuned!

    lol
    I was already considering, but then decided against it. I didn't want to copy a current Thedi model.
    If it had been a model that is no longer available, I would probably have got a go.

    looks cool, I like the jacket, although not at all wearable in my climate... not feeling the huge transformers or matchless style brand logo on the sleeve

    Nice choice for the rotten mid west winters. Looking forward to fit pics and hearing how the mobility is.

    Thanks. I really like the grain too. It's shearling, so the the leather exterior is just the reverse side of sheepskin. He did a hand-dyed finish with some old technique that he wouldn't tell me much about.

    I get that. I was on the fence about the logo on the sleeve too. I almost asked him to remove it from the design but decided to just go with the jacket as he intended it. My first name starts with a "T", so I assumed people would think it's an extra detail to make it personal. Had it been any other letter, I'd have passed. That being said, it's larger than I thought. Not sure what the metal is, but it's hefty.

    Yeah, it's definitely the beastly warm jacket I need for Michigan winters. Of course, the day it arrives the temperature climbed significantly and I could have worn a lighter jacket.
