    Not quick for me. It took one week for the package to leave the country of origin.

    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!

    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.

    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. ;)

    Ps: Congrats!

    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.

    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.
