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

    Incidentally, I just ordered one in navy last Friday. Saw it on a colleague, and he was full of praise. The beast got delivered on Saturday, and I cannot recommend it enough. Runs pretty long in the body with an otherwise pretty neat fit. incredibly heavy too.
    Funny to see a post on this just now.

    Heaven. You won't be needing a leather jacket next to this thing. Some years ago, life gifted me two days on a sailboat in an open sea and it's one thing I'll never forget. Just... Amazing. I know I'll never again in my life be able to relive that but whatever, nothing lasts forever and I'm happy.

    Maybe you’ll make it to Hamburg one sunny day. Drive down the Elbe a bit and visit their only store in Stade. If I’ll have time I pick you up and we make our noses red on the Reeperbahn afterwards...:)

    I already got a Troyer from them which is perfectly made down to smallest detail, just stunning.
    Switching my clothing a bit from US to European stuff this cardigan is going to replace my Carhartt Berwick and possibly, combined with my chore coat, my arctic traditional coat of same brand.

    Cheers

    is this "journeyman" uniform, I remember reading article in wikipedia about apprentice of crafts there wear such uniform to take pilgrimage across the country to apply their skill... I thought wtf is this 21st century looks very steampunk cosplay meetup-ish, but got to say apart from everything else (velour jacket and top hat and stuff) their bootcut carpenter pants looks fashionably cool.

    I can assure you, it has nothing to do with cosplay. It´s the real deal.

    You can freequently see young apprentices of the carpenter trade and related professions wandering cross my country in their traditional attire. Occasionally they will approach you for a free bed for a night and/or a meal. Your picture of a "pilgrimage" is accurate, I guess. It s a very old and "real" tradition in an ever more virtual world.

    It came and went, it was way too large. Even on the tightest adjustments. I was literally swimming in it:D.

    Beer and Ebay are a dangerous combo for folks with the leather jacket affliction...... Hopefully these end up being keepers.

    I think the pics are lying a bit but hopefully these are nice. If not, I will try them on after a couple of beers to improve their fit. Sorry to anyone who was in on these. But they could hit the market again if they don't fit me.

    Hoping to come up with something special in the next 6 months to have 5 Star make. Then I GOTTA shut down the purchasing. :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops::(:(:(
