    Thanks! That matches. 3 Ibs are 1.36 kilograms. My M-size type III sherpa is 1.3 kilograms.

    Even though the jackets all feature different denims they all seem to weigh about the same. Wonderful, pleasant and easy jackets to wear (and they look cool too imo).

    I wish this had double black denim with dark brown “Sherpa” lining... the little bit of extra contrast would be nice.

    Every black Sherpa I’ve seen has black lining; doesn’t really have the same effect as the indigo denim jackets with white Sherpa lining....

    Ahh, Ton you’re not sick, just s searcher. And a searcher gotta search.
    I personally like this year’s seasonal search better that last year’s suede ones!
    The black on black is the winner in my book. Although.....nvm!

    I think I have better odds at having an intimate relationship with Scarlett Johanssen then I do finding that jacket in my size and to be honest I’m not sure which I’d Prefer.

    Long term this jacket will age very well. Johansson... not so well.

    Lol. Yeah well I probably won’t either. It would be a coin toss. Definitely some type of toss. Maybe a coin would be involved?
    Either way that IH Sherpa lined jacket already escaped my grasp once due to my own ignorance of both the denim itself and the kavorka of the trucker pattern.

    I don't know, man... Scarlett from Lost in Translation and I'd happily give up this jacket. And just get another since we're already in Japan.

    if there is/are still another textile jackets I want, then perhaps
    a camel colored cord type 3 of which I will bring it to the people where I ordered my leather jacket to patch the collar with closely colored leather to make it stiffer and longer lasting
    and
    green duck canvas type 2 or type 1,

    but no shearling sherpa just unrealistic for my climate

    And I want a 70s style hazelnut-brown Cord type III. :) Would be damn good for turtleneck pullover!

    Easy choice - the jacket. Of the two, it'd get me in marginally less trouble at home. ;)

    Now there's a thought - "Yes, dear, I'm sorry I spent hundreds on yet another jacket, but it was either that or I would have had to sleep with Scarlet Johansen, and I didn't think that would be fair to you...." :p
