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

    Thank you @Jin431 i went cloudy black with cream zipper, i let it sit for the night, tomorrow will roll it, i will not seal it yet, until it become a jacket, i can touch up a bit along the way if i see color disparity between panels, after that i will coat the surface with final coat cream, im not really sure what is the content but somekind of wax smells like turtlewax to give extra shine and protect the color from bleeding when conditioned or rained on, not sure if really needed but its just a cream and buff into shine pretty easy. Already tried it on the belt part

    Now this is what I call custom! So cool that you are so involved in the process of making your own jacket! How long do you think your tailor will finish sewing your jacket?

    And then you find something like this...

    zip and pulls look to be 60s? Damn this is nice. I think this is @Leather Walker jacket but I can’t find the old thread.

    Waiting on a Highwayman from Aero, this is my first leather jacket of this calibre.

    I think I am into week number 8, from when I placed my order. Haven't actually been thinking about it, once I placed the order I just put it out of my mind, time has flown by fairly quick. Can't wait! I reckon it'll be about another 4-8 weeks before it's here at the earliest.

    How do you check the status of your jacket?

    If you have an Aero account, you can log in to the website and view your orders.

    It is. Nicest CAL I've seen. Reason why I've never bought another one. Untoppable.

    That may be the the nicest jacket I’ve ever seen.

    Ah, cool! Cheers.

    Mines says, Status: Factory. I'm guessing that is the one before 'in production'.

    between factory and "in production" I had a short "exchange". but maybe only because I had thought about a change.

    If any newbies on TFL want to know what patina is, look no further.

    This Californian Chrome Tanned Cowhide is coming. I have three California Chrome Tanned Steerhide jackets. Interested to see how they compare. Never had a jacket with stars or studs, they are original to the jacket early 50s

    I put in an early bid but didn’t want to get into a bidding war with you. And in the past couple of weeks I’ve purchased the Sportclad, Vanson E and Cal. I have to chill. It’s a beauty and I look forward to your review.

    Your comment somehow feels understated. It’s a real beauty. Now I will obsessively search for something like this.

    minvintage excepted my offer for this Cal racer. Hoping the zip with missing teeth works as mentioned.
