    Having owned Lost World's, Thedi, Aero, Langlitz, Schott etc. I kept reading about this guy named John Chapman from GoodWear. My understanding was that he produced an exceptional product.

    My chance finally came when a Beck 666 became available. There is a history regarding an original Beck that had been sent to John by a TFL member.
    I contacted John and made the purchase.

    After doing some research I discovered the Beck had wider shoulders than most Cafe Racers, similar to the Aero Cafe Racers. Just what I was looking/hoping for.

    Jacket arrived and WOW. Amazing quality leather, construction and fit.
    Now I understand the hype of John Chapman's GoodWear jackets.
    Stellar precision made jacket. The aniline cowhide is exceptional in texture, color and smell.
    The Seal Brown is the nicest I have ever viewed.
    Originally I wanted to purchase and then expected to resell the jacket. I just wanted to check out for myself what John created. This is a keeper.
    My two favorite jackets/makers are Langlitz and GoodWear. Easy declaration for me to make.

    Cafe Racers aren't usually my cup of tea, but yours is an exception. Lovely jacket, sweetfights.

    I had seen that same jacket on his website and would have bought before you had a chance but didn't since I already have too many jackets and am not getting any younger. Congratulations for a fine acquisition.

    Its's a beauty...It reminds me of my Norshor. My Norshor is more of a Californian style...but the leather color and overall look is just like it. Trust me guys, the Norshor's are F*ing amazing!!
