    This will be called our 'East Coast' Jacket.

    Taken from an old 1940s Cross zip half belt. Not sure of the maker but part of the label that was still intact mentioned that the jacket was made on the east coast, hence the name... :)

    This is our take on the Grizzly. Will be available with or without the belt. Leather is our standard Cowhide, front panels are Hair On Hide Horsehide....

    Love this. What do you think by when this will be available on your website? Would love to get a second one of yours. I don't get to wear the Admiral Byrd too much lately but every time I do, I think why dont you put this on more often.

    Just came across this. Looks very interesting and will be checking back once this civid-crisis ends. That Grizzly looks very neat. I'm particularly interested in the Northeastern and the 50s Racer. And yes, I second what you say about Thailand manufacture. I live a short flight away and have spent a lot of time there. Fashion and pop-culture is hugely influenced by Japan and Korea. Denim and workwear is hugely Japan-centric, with a dedicated following that loves their Iron Hearts, Momotaros and Red Wings, chain stores selling these brands in high-end malls (ex: Pronto Denim), and also several very earnest home-grown manufacturers (ex: Amory Jeans, Nama Denim, etc). In fact right now I'm wearing a made in Thailand pair of 15 oz selvedge jeans by Nama, with denim sourced from Okayama, Japan, and for its price, I'm really happy with the quality. So yes, I'll be very comfortable with the Made in Thailand tag. Both my motorcycles are also English but made in Thailand, and they run and look as good as my previous made in UK and made in Germany bikes, so ... :)

    I'm also looking forward to your reopening, as I have the hots for the cafe racer with a couple of modifications.

    Sign me up for the reopening too. I think I'm going to give the Creighton Aviator a try. Such a cool design.

    Hey all,

    Sorry for the long delay in posting. Unfortunately i don't really have any positive news at present.

    For various reasons we just aren't able to start taking orders again just yet and i don't really have a time scale on when we might be able to re-start.

    I will post again when i have more info.

    Apologies to those of you who have made enquiries and are interested in jackets.

    All the best and stay safe

    Tony
