How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    I just got a darned near identical one on @Monitor's reco, size 40-42. I like it very much, great simple cut. Hide was a bit stiff. The label was hanging by a couple of threads so I cut it off and saved, of course. I gave mine a machine wash on warm with detergent and then a coat of Obenaufs. Hide is supple now, deeper black than before. Happy to own a classic. Edit: mine is a white label. The cut and the leather looks identical though.

    He's a nut job and I have no scruples when it comes to taking advantage.

    Their store still seems to be open, albeit over Amazon. The forums seemed pretty dead, though.

    In all fairness to you, I don't think you posted the Gambler in HDs definite keeper thread.. :D Let me guess, you want a KotR/J106 thingy like our new Lithuanian member got himself?

    Actually I’ve got a bastard of my own in mind and it’s not a cross zip. I’ll have to ask Aero really nice to help me out here. Fingers crossed they’ll be on board.

    ^is it something western? like marlboro country western :D


    yesterday I ordered a type3 in 13oz made from indigo dyed gi fabrics from the same brand I previously bought the type3 in indigo x black for my brother.

    i also got smitten by copper hardware in how they patinas, and shorter body 5 buttons type3 in another tonal blue stitching and rarer fabrics looks kind of unique and would be a summer jacket

    actually drooled over the PBJ version, but had to settle with the budget friendly local made one 1/4 of the price that I know has a good fit.

    I think Goodwear edges it for understated presentation. It arrived trussed up in as small a box as you could do without hurting the jacket - probably to get through customs without attracting attention.

    Just received an email from Aero, my Grizzly is done! Fingers crossed I will have it before the weekend! I must say I am rather nervous. Grizzlys look weird, I can only hope mine will look weird in a good way.

    I'm looking forward to fit pics and I'm sure it will look good on you despite the perfect timing of Aero to finish it at the beginning of the cold season ;) I'm also considering a Grizzly but more likely one with cowhair panels even if my wife would rather prefer me looking like a Teddy bear than a Cow ;)

    Although its not an easy pattern to size, because it is super V shaped.
    Looking forward to fit pics, fingers crossed hoping it fits!

    Yep as Carlos said there is a massive drop from chest/shoulders to waist. If you get that right is a very comfortable jacket to wear ;)
