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

    HAd a few different Bates over the years. I actually just fired up my old iMac and found a vault of pics of loved and lost jackets...threw up in my mouth a little bit, all those jackets that I passed along

    My man, you did the same on the gray E. I was waiting for response and he came back “sorry man, just sold it”. Then the Ton selfie pops up on FL.

    I figured this Bates would go fast so just pulled trigger. If it doesn’t fit I will send it your way.

    LOL. Turn about is fair play!! I knew the second I saw it I should just hit the buy button. It for some reason I'm more cautious lately. That's a score man. Cant wait to see your review, if I can, through tear filled eyes. :D

    Uh-oh... Fonzie's done it again! :eek:
    I should have shown more restrain knowing that I have an Eastman Californian in Havana Brown coming sometime in the next few short weeks but I couldn't control myself any further and just bought a Thurston's Buco J-100 in Dark Seal Vincenza!
    I've always felt that I "needed" one of those to round up my collection so, if this one fits the way I think it will, I will be very close to ending my collection on a couple of high notes. :)
    No more buying jackets for me after that, if anything, I will trade later on (if the bug bites again) existing ones in my already quite decent collection with other TFL members, but I will try to avoid the eBay route for good!

    Ps: This Buco x Aero is gonna be epic, by the way, I am very excited. @Carrie as usual, was a pleasure to deal with.

    Carrie emailed me today, says she has my Aero BR. I guess that means I will have it by Wednesday!

    I just talked to Mike, first he wants me to send the jacket back to him for the inspection. He also mentioned Vanson is now using different competition weight leather from before.......

    Thanks. If the new comp. weight is soft without wear, it ain't worth a shizzle. If true (you received one of the new comp weight batches and not Firenze), glad I got in before the change.

    Seems very reasonable that they want to look at the jacket before deciding on a resolution. As far as changing the comp. weight leather, they have broken a cardinal rule: If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    In those pics it looks like comp weight. I guess we wait and see.

    I'll be really interested to see what the difference actually is. The comp weight I'm familiar with is typically glass like smooth, heavy and stiff as a board...keep us posted @Hh121
    Will that Enfield stand up unsupported?

    I just test it, sorry about my previous answer to JMax, it actually can stand by itself..... [​IMG][​IMG]

    But it is really much softer and thinner than Model b

    Looking forward to seeing this. The ELMC Californian is one of my favourite jackets but I’ve always felt lost in no mans land between the L and the R. Nice of you to work through this for me on your dime

    Now we are talking!!! haha. Looks good to me, more than good. It looks great. Please keep us posted on what Vanson says is the difference between the two competition weight leathers. Now I am even more intrigued.

    This has been rattling around in my head last few days; such a distinctive take on the lancer-front style, I knew I'd seen one before. Clicked this evening: it's the same jacket as Mel Gibson wore in the original Mad Max film (give or take the placement of the sinle pocket; in 2 & 3 Max's jacket (supposed to be the same one) had two pockets, otherwise identical (save for the missing sleeve....).

    Well, the lapels are different as well.

    Yes, most of the photos I found have more traditional lapels but this photo looks close....
