    It really reminds me of that beat up model E I posted last year. It just feels like that. This one:

    Are you emailing your observations to Tony so he can fix the issues going forward?

    Great write up @ton312, great fit and an honest appraisal. Frankly, it just makes me more keen to order as soon as product is properly ready to roll.

    Well done everybody!

    Vanson leather always looks like plastic/vinyl when new, and within a few yeras of hard wear looks amazing. While this Herc PJ27 looks amazing right off the bat, I think the Vanson will in time catch up if not exceed.

    Thanks for the great review @ton312
    Really pleased it turned out well and the jacket looks great on you. We will address all the issues you mentioned and hopefully keep improving.
    In another week or so we should be ready to roll

    ton312—what an honest and balanced assessment. If Hercules can correct those two components to detailed, then I’ll be a customer, if for a slightly higher price. The jacket looks great!

    the leather creases very nicely, for the leather I think this more relaxed fit looks better

    Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Jacket looks phenomenal for what you pay. Have seen much more expensive jackets look and fit much worse. Leather in particular looks sweet (even though it is very unmanly ultra thin leather at only 2.5 oz, ofcourse). Imo, it fits great in the body and the only negative things I can find are the ones you already pointed out. Stronger elastics on bi swing and more taper in the sleeves from elbow downwards towards wrist.

    Will absolutely get one of these as soon as Tony has everything set up.

    Nice looking/fitting jacket. I like the label! I've owned these two in the same style. A Buco and a Ralph Edwards. Both were very comfortable wearing jackets. This style has a lot of pieces to put together.

    Well I gotta say it looks pretty good on you. And as has been said, for that price point, it's a mighty fine product.
    Hercules is definitely off to a good start.
