I was torn between the dark maple and the redwood. I think the dark maple is more versatile than the redwood so I went for it. I figured with it being my first really nice jacket l would want to have a more options when wearing it. But that redwood looks really slick.That Vanson Oxford is pretty sharp, especially in that particular leather you chose.
Here are some pics Shawn at Five star sent me of the crystal brown (what a name) goat. I think it looks awesomeI am torn on what to buy next. I am thinking a type 3 leather trucker from Five Star in dark brown goat or the Satchel and Page Montgomery. Any experiences with either would be appreciated!
