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

Gotta say, I honestly like it more than that Vanson. Maybe it's just the leather or something, not sure what but it just looks better.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.
