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

    Had to return the Vanson Raid. The size 38 had 58 cm /almost 23" pit to pit and fit like a 42. Unfortunately the retailer doesn't stock the size 36 because the jacket itself is insanely cool, hands down coolest non-belted crosszip I have owned. Broad shoulders, very narrow waist, great range of motion, perfect pocket set-up and due to lack of belt/other bikerish design details very wearable off the bike. I hated having to return it.

    Ordered a Five Stars Leather Windbreaker in goatskin now, very curious how that will play out.

    Update: called, they say they"ll all have to meet and discuss what to do with the situation tomorrow, doesn't sound very promising.

    I had some regret in selling my disco sex cowboy Schott so when I saw this one on eBay in the same size...BIN. Navy blue suede!

    regius,
    Be prepared to stick to your guns and make them honor their “satisfied customer” guarantee. If they don’t want to make you a new jacket then it might be time to request a full refund.
    I wouldn’t worry too much about being banned by Langlitz either. They rejected my order a little over a year ago and in the end I think it was a good thing, it led me to Lost Worlds and one of the nicest jackets in my collection.

    John,
    Funny you should ask, I just sent Stuart an email this morning inquiring as to when the jacket was going to be made. He replied that it will still be another few weeks before they get around to it. I had hoped it would be sooner but I’m sure I’ll be happy when it finally arrives!

    This arrived yesterday. Fit is great. Feel comfortable. No major wear and tear, teacore is only starting to show through. Then it is an old JM that is made by the Few and hence not a shiniki. It is probably Italian HH. Has a heavier coating than shinki. Is softer and heavier than shiniki. I own 4 the Few jackets and the leather surface of this is very similar to my the Few badalassi.

    Update on Langlitz D pocket: They got to it, and very flexibly agree to re-make. They even offered to ship this one to me just to try and make sure everything else is ok, with shipping paid.

    What a beautiful jacket! I particularly love the graceful curve of the zipper.

    Thanks El Marro,
    Dave @Maverickson Knocked this one out of the park.
    I'd love a L.W. CHIP like yours or a Langlitz Timberline, but my Wife would kill me so this is it.
    I convinced Her I needed a mid to light weight jacket to wear.
    I "live through your (and others) jacket collections".
    THANKS to ALL
    steve

    70’s Schott rancher arrived. I love these but the wife does not. She told me I look like I’m wearing the top half of Bea Arthur’s pants suit from “and then there’s Maude”.

    Of course I gave her this look:
