    Thanks for the enabling guys, I can always count on you!!

    But seriously, I was supposed to sell 2 jackets before buying this one
    At least one is listed so I’m almost half way there right? So maybe in the future but not right now....the espresso colour does look really nice.

    @navetsea I couldn’t really layer comfortably under the medium I had previously so had to size up for this one

    Don't feel too bad ProteinNerd, I have a BK (taking an absolute age btw), another Dubow (Platon) and an AVI A-2 on the way... Was supposed to sell something to make room for something else, but 'ell... sell what? I like em all.

    The jacket looks really good and I especially like that colour.

    If Thedi had an action back or shoulder gusset option on that jacket, I think I'd own one already for riding in.

    That is true, though. I knew something isn't right when the second 526PJ arrived. It was only at that moment I realized I've got two of the same jackets in what was basically the same size, without understanding why.

    I received today my new Aero Bootlegger in Cordovan Vicenza. Customized with Teamster action back and button cuffs.

    This must be my best fitting Aero so far and I absolutely love the colour of the cordovan Vicenza!

    I can top that though, I like the RMC Storm Rider I recently got so much that I am contemplating buying another one in the same size! I tell myself that it would be good to have a back up in case something happens to the one I am wearing As if I don’t already have 20 leather jackets and three or four different denim jackets to wear if something happens to this one.

    You and Red Devil own the most well-rounded, colorful and interesting collections. Another winner.

    Thanks! I guess I might beat @red devil at well-rounded (and quantity), but I'm sure he beats me hands down at colourful and interesting!

    So we've see the stock Storm Cuffs, Zipper Cuffs and now Button Cuffs on the Bootlegger!

    All 3 seem to work really well with the style but think I like these buttons cuff the best though.

    Any shots of the Teamster back?

    Lol that’s the very thing that has delayed me listing and selling the Diamond Dave j-100 now I have the ELMC J-100.....what if “something”happens to the ELMC

    It’s not like I don’t have the Aero J-100, the Flat Head CR in a similar style or the 2 other CR I have....Pure insanity .....

    Prote, it's not insanity, it's simple collector's logic which has obsessive inclinations. By ordinary standards of owning shit, it does seem odd but collecting has it's own logic and humans may well be hard wired for this. The drive for completion and the fear of loss is part of every collector's experience.

    The only way I know off this path is to not begin in the first place or to get rid of everything while you still can. None of us will ever be happy or satisfied, our incandescent hunger for more or different or improved jackets will never leave us.

    Or maybe I'm wrong about this. :p
