Anyone knows what Greg is up to?
I was told on May 25th that my mockup should be done soon and complete silence since then...
Considering i was originally promised a mockup in February and a jacket in March, i am wondering if other people are experiencing this kind of delays?

I am expecting my jacket sometime in Sept, which means I’d hole to see the fit jacket soon …

I know he has a lot on his plate with the shop and besides … he needs that button hole machine for my build lol

My PMHWYMN had zippered cuffs, and I would highly recommend it! :)... along with D-rings on the adjusters and slanted chest pocket.

If Greg can make the tweaks that his former employer won’t, he will have a real winner!

I thought I had this figured out … gimped button holes in each sleeve. Zips would give it an edgier, cool look. You’ve got me thinking.

Amazing jacket! Wow. Not much else to say. Does FL do French seams? It’s got a Leathertogs vibe.

Thanks @jonesy86

Thanks brother. I am not sure if Greg does French seams but that will be my next request out of him for my pending order. Basically the same jacket but brown leather. Yes the sleeves and back are likened to the leathertogs design lol I can't seem to stick to 1 jacket design so it's always a mash up


@Kuro thanks! It's not as nice as your bad ass la Brea in rude black but pays a little homage to both the J24 and leathertogs. I wanted to also emulate the J24L snap to the bottom hem by the main zipper but there's not enough space to place the stud

Perfect. How do you like the teacore (as compared to the full aniline black)?
THanks @Marc mndt. Graining is similar, the black aniline has very fine grains and so does the teacore shinki. The teacore has a coarser touch to the hand, it feels lighter on my back, may be thinner than 1.3mm (that's probably why Greg had to redo my jacket as the 1st jacket he made had panels that were too thin for his liking and did not pass QC) but more rigid overall. I like the shiny black finish but it's not as warm looking as the aniline shinki, the brown has to really peak through to better appreciate this hide. The sleeves does not roll as nice as the full aniline FL but maybe because it hasn't gotten wet yet, the creasing on the lower back is also not as defined as well. The teacore shinki feels like it will need more wear time to break in.
