    Well now I've no choice but to have that jean jacket made from it. That same 4 oz + steer. That'd make a good jacket. :D

    The leather is thick and smells great. As expected, new, it is a little stiffer than horse but as others have observed slightly more spongy to start. Now I see how cxl horse and steer can be mistaken for the other.

    It was handymike’s photos that were a real deciding factor in how well it ages. And I believe handymike described the slightly “sponge” texture that really convinced me.
    Thanks to all!!! Takes a whole community worth of experience to hit the target unknown.

    The weight and thickness are the only real noticeable differences and they are pretty slight. Now. Fit pic man.

    This is an extremely sweet jacket! All the details nailed IMHO....
    Can't wait to see how it looks on you.

    Glad I went with the August collar.
    Always loved the Suburban collar too.

    @Alphahunter According to my rough estimate, you are purchasing a new jacket every 17.8 hours.

    My Eastman B-6 in progress...glad I ordered before the price rise. Crikey - £849 to £1049 in a week! :O

    This is a regular size 46 which Rob had made for me so I could get the body and sleeve lengths correct for the final jacket. Flip flops are optional of course! :D

    The sheepskin is terrific - I particularly love the 1/4 inch shearling which should be very lightweight and more wearable than Aero’s which I always thought was a tad too thick. The final jacket a hould be with me soon...exciting!
