I went for a darker brown
Hey that’s mine! It’s on the way, will post fit pics when I have it. & thanks to @PilotJens for helping me with some fit details! Can’t wait for it to come
Do you have any info on the leather?
Is that Shawn's CXL? Thickness, etc?
Beautiful Color..what made you select it in the first place?
Haven't seen their Conic Goat ...
But this one definitely has character..
Kindly advise and thank you in advance
Nailed everything down with nice touches throughout. I think you got dealt with the best looking goatskin they have, that looks like it has a nice sheen to it and lovely grains too. Is it squeaky? Premium black goatskin? Looks like a thicker hide. Congrats man.
Congrats! That looks really cool.
Thank you! Leather is not squeaky at all and it's very thick, I just asked for their thickest black goat. I just tried to measure it and you can see the result, not sure if I did it right though. Shawn said he can wax it and iron it in order to get a sheen so I told him to go for it.
Thank you! I was hoping they will get a good result and they nailed it.
Sweet! the black goatskin is likely the best leather they offer and that wax treatment really made a big difference. I'm sure future orders will get that treatment and they should make it standard really because the leather is usually on the dull/flat side.
That's exactly what I thought, I've asked if he can make it shiny as it's too matte. You can tell the difference indeed from the first pictures before the treatment. The hide was great before but it's better now. I just gotta get rid of the smell
That turned out great!
Thank you, it sure did
should have thought of that before too lol my deerskin trucker would have looked a lot better but maybe I'll put mink oil on it or some oil to make the leather look better. Some have reported that before so just wear it and air it out, should be gone in a few days maybe
Love that trucker, it doesn't seem that dull though but if you think it will help why not. I'm sure the smell will go away slowly, the jacket feels nice to wear since it's a bit roomier than the CR.
Thanks. Its not so bad but really noticeable when I wear black shirt/jeans. I think your new jacket is more versatile than the cafe racer and you did well designing this.
Got it, makes sense then. With your collection though, I wouldn't be worried I'm glad I picked this design, I might redesign it at some point to have it done in a different leather as I agree with you about it being more versatile and looks really nice.
My new A-2 Werber Russet Horsehide from Five Star is here.
Came out really good! Great fit and I like that horsehide. If it would have been a bit thicker I'd have ordered mine in hh. Congrats!
The one in Buffalo Leather is a bit larger and longer… I’ve optimized the Fit
The HH is not so thin as one thinks, it’s very flexible and I like it better than the Buffalo, which is, for an A-2, a bit too stiff.
Congrats! I'm thinking really hard about getting the same done since Shawn posted it on the FB page.
I'll be waiting impatiently for your fit pics!
The improvements are great on this one. Fits you well. I'm glad you're happy with the leather and the jacket overall
I think the average horse's life span in Pakistan is about to drop significantly.
