    Looks spot on from behind! The clean and simple back is my preference too

    Is that the Vermont Espresso HH? It looks a lot darker than the sample Alan sent me.

    Yup.. it could be the lighting here and also some variance in hides..

    Out of interest, was the piping on the pocket welts always a different shade to the rest of the jacket, or has that developed?

    Looks pretty cool, just never seen it occur before! Must have been from a different batch of leather I guess?

    The new JL looks fantastic, but that Aero Sheene is just beautiful. You really nailed the fit on the Sheene and the hide is gorgeous. I would've thought that was CXL.

    Another good job by JL. You did well.
     
  9. Nice. How heavy is this leather in ounces? Did Alan say?

    A picture of the jacket from today. Love how much lighter this is compared to the Aero and the wool lining is amazing..

    Lighter than Vicenza? Is that even possible? LOL. Jacket looks great man. Beautiful color and fit. Alan does amazing work and this is another fine example. Fit is spot on as well.

    Thank you. This jacket is a lot lighter than vicenza and easier to maneuver in actually. My Aero jacket was from the first batch of vicenza and that hide was definitely heavier than the later batches.

    That is a beauty. For my own curiosity, what's the price range for a Johnson leather custom?
