    Can’t wait to see it in the flesh. I may well simply copy and paste that when he has the black heavy ready.

    1.) I love seeing something you have been waiting for is out for delivery.

    2.) I can't stand though when I see the notice and I'm not at home to get it instantly.

    I asked my wife to get it off the porch and she asked why the box was so heavy. Good sign.

    Which is ironic because one of the pics I sent was a Bootlegger you owned. "Make it as awesome as Mr. Tony's," I instructed.

    I envy you. Right now we (Europe) have a VAT threshold of €22. Starting the first of July, the threshold will be lowered to €0. Thank you European union.

    Wow. When I said it couldn’t be as thick or stiff as anything I’ve had before I was very much mistaken. Makes LW’s 4oz feel like cheese paper. This is almost comically thick. And insanely stiff. I do fell like it will soften eventually but as a warning to anyone who wants to try…it will take extreme commitment. The pattern and cut are superb. Ironically one of the best jackets I have in terms of ease of movement. I’m hesitant to post fit pics b/c it’s so holding its own shape right now it’s not even funny. Will get better shots in 80-100 years when it’s a bit more broken in. It does have a pleasant aroma similar to cxl. I should also add that it creaks. It doesn’t squeak. It creaks.

    The fit feels great! I could’ve subtracted 1/2” from the sleeve but it’s otherwise totally spot on.

    Just get ready dude. At first it’s honestly a little scary but after a few minutes of wear and crumpling it’s already starting to yield (a little).

    I hope so.

    I bought a Brave Star 21.5 oz denim jacket in January. Even with regular use, it only very recently stopped standing by itself. I've begun to wonder if I should take a baseball bat to it. 20210422_110837.jpg 20210122_132603.jpg 20210122_135108.jpg

    Looking over that leather some more...I think the colour is really good. Dare I say...Horweenesque?

    I have a feeling a lot of guys are going to make orders based on your pics.
