That must've been an interesting process, who gets which design spin the wheel!
Did you request flawless hides or did you order extra and cut away the scars? Usually game animals like moose has lots of scratches and arrow marks and all.
The color now looks like very dark navy. These are very special leather!
The tannery doesn't offer flawless hides ( they don't grade them), we just ordered what they had.
RD ordered much more than what was "needed" because we where expecting to have a bunch of waste because of scratches and bullet holes, but when they arrived Stu said they where pretty much flawless and he wasn't expecting to have much waste at all.
It's a good news/bad news situation, we originally wanted to order 6 jackets total, we now have enough clean leather for 10!
Not sure what we are going to do with the excess yet, either order more jackets or make it available to a few LW fans.
Edit: getting flawless hides was just luck, apparently Stu wasn't that lucky when he ordered the original green and blue batches years ago, which is the reason why he doesn't want to risk ordering more himself, he says' its just the luck of the draw and we where very lucky this time...
