This is from the San Francisco City Directory 1932

Not quick for me. It took one week for the package to leave the country of origin.
Hmm... delayed gratification then
Oh man no pictures?! Lemme take a guess. Is it a FW Mulholland in vintage black??
Either way I'm looking forward to seeing it!
Whoops...There it is!
Not a Mulholland.
Here is a hint: It is NOT a Lewis Leathers Corsair, nor an Addict AD-01.
Well unless that hint was meant to throw me completely off, the FCL Tyler is the only other jacket that I can think of in that style. Wait does Y2 leathers do the LL style jackets too..?
It was a really well made jacket but definitely too much jacket for me. I run hot but that jacket was a furnace. You are like me then. I am also fine in a wool-lined leather jacket and a long sleeved tee or thermal waffle tee ect down to -20. Also, - 20 C in Montreal is colder than - 20 C on the prairies. It is dry here not humid like Montreal but the wind here will tear your face off when it is that cold. Anything colder I wear a thicker mouton lined canvass N1 type jacket. Good thing it is + 4 C today so not a normal December and we will get the cold snap in Jan and Feb.
I hate winter.
It has arrived. Endgame?
I've quit buying anything. I turned 75 in August and see no further reason to accumulate "stuff/Trash" to leave for the undertaker. Have good time collecting your treasures, "youngin's".
I say this with humor and good will toward all of you.
I already have it figured...LW j-24 for the most 2020 post/thing/surprise to date. I’m talking full regalia. Forest green elk hide, russet mouton collar....iridescent purple quilted liner...tell me I’m wrong.
Endgame? I am not familiar with that term -- please explain.
I am not saying you're wrong.
Your mixing things up, Tony. This is Trenchfriend´s new stunner. If memory serves you got the specs right, but it reads "rhombus quilted liner"...
I'm still not sure why but I had to buy it because I don't think I'll ever get a chance to find a better priced Freewheelers Sunset (Bootleggers)
I missed the opportunity on a deerskin Darius (Afraid it would be too short for the style) but this has been relisted for weeks and the price was lowering so at ~580€ it's a steal I had to put my bid and I was the only one. Then we'll have to see how customs murder me but man...this is a beauty! Hope it fits because it will be a fun one to wear, specially here where the sun hits all year.
I am crossing fingers it fits you to your liking!
Congrats! Sounds like a good deal. I saw it on Buyee. If it fits you well, I'm sure you will love it, especially the butter-soft deerskin. This is one of my favorite leather jackets.
Thanks! It's a bit of a risk but I'm crossing my fingers too. If not I'm sure I won't have trouble moving it on as it is a Freewheelers and it would be located in Europe already.
Thanks! I was almost considering your A-1 but I've learned that I don't really like the knit necks or cuffs so decided against it although they're really warm when the cold hits.
I was looking at "Seabiscuit" screenshots I took a while ago, and decided to buy the Sunset. There's a cross zip jacket in a similar colour.
Posted in my other thread but in case you do not follow that wanted to share here as well cuz its sweet! Custom JL chp
Making me second guess all the life choices that led me anywhere but to that beauty right there!
Are you happy with the fit or need any modifications?
EDIT: Read your other post. Fingers crossed for the fit, and v happy for you!
