    I have ONE potential jacket.

    I am looking at a Harris Tweed Blackwatch and black leather trim halfbeltish type cross zip.

    I will share more if I make it happen. The maker is willing to do it, I just have to say yes.

    So you got fed up of putting your toes in water and jumped in the pool :)

    Why not, at least you will know for sure in a few days or so, I am crossing fingers the fit works for you! We need more centinela owners here :D

    Enjoying living vicariously through this thread. No new jackets for me til I shift enough weight to *comfotably* fasten my size 44 Aeros again. I'm getting there.... by Summer I hope to be able to order those Shackletons I've been promising myself...

    Are you aware that you don't have to use the paypal exchange rate?
    There is a way to pay with paypal in JPY straight from your bank account, so you get your banks exchange rate rather than the paypal exchange rate.
    I did that a couple times this week and everytime it was quite a bit cheaper to avoid paypal exchange rate.

    The difference is you will only know exactly how much you paid a few days later when you see the sale on your bank account, but IME it is always cheaper.

    Congrats! Very good choice! Watanabe-san from Genco is a nice guy to deal with - I also purchased my Centinela there and he was so kind to reserve the new Freewheelers Worcester jacket for me. I'm crossing my fingers that it will fit you well - if so, the jacket is definitely worth the "investment"...the black leather is really special and nice (different to their other black horsehides they off in some way) and the construction and workmanship are just perfect! Here's mine....

    Not jackets but got these special issue magazines today (revised edition). Slightly sharper photos and a few additions. Great read if you don't already have the first edition (I have the first edition but these aren't expensive for me ordering from a friend's shop).

    I’d love to get these issues. Any tips on how I can purchase them?

    Oh, my advice, forget the "Dear my" series unless you know Japanese. The "Dear my" series are owners talking about their favourite "possession".

    GW incoming today. Perfect arrival to maintain my sanity. New school semester, back to 6am-6pm+ days. Ugh.
