    I am 5'9" 175 lbs ordered a size 40, only mentioned to Tony that as far as tolerances within production go, I'd rather have it a bit smaller than a bit larger. Sleeves are just fine for my height so I guess there are kinda on the short side, taller people may have to add length.

    Both jackets looks great but seeing your photos JJ has really turned my head. The Admiral Byrd is something else. Now I'm interested . . .

    Same. I just keep pounding away. Relentless. I’m sure he’s got his hands full and it is the holiday season...I can wait. But not long! I’ve done that plenty of times already and I lost my taste for it!

    I’ll let you chase him down the rabbit hole. I suspect once some reviews of the D pocket come in I will jump right in after you. Unless I find a LW J23 or Speed Demon first.

    That jacket looks amazing! The leather looks beautiful. I love how rich it appears.

    Tony must be flooded with requests after the last positive reviews and how good the jackets look.
    I think that that has to be taken into consideration for the delay in responses as well as being a new company with understandable teething issues if there are any.

    I’d wait patiently for a reply, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait seeing the incredible value for money of his products.

    Hello Tony,

    I sent the inquiry to the email found on your website. It was from my work computer so perhaps it is sitting in my outbox. Or I fat-fingered the address. I’ll have to check but appreciate your response. I’ll PM you here in the future.

    Thanks.

    Do the jackets have inside pockets or if not, are they a custom option?

    So if I understand correctly they do inside pockets on request?

    Wow, that pull up effect on that russet cow is nice. How is it holding out? Too bad they closed due to covid, really wanted the grizzly pattern from them

    The pull up on that russet hide is insane. Very waxy feel, but I like it a lot.

    Great stuff, that sleeve picture is so nice. Waxy is good! That will be interesting to see down the road.
