    Really nice looking jacket John. It really looks like the ultimate jacket for riding. So what kind of bike do you ride? Because you ae definitely ready to ride!!!

    I see that you used some of my ideas, added some of your own, and came up with a jacket that just simply kicks ass!!!

    Very impressed with the fit, perfect in body and sleeves, nice and trim. Certainly better than many other LWs I have seen, in particular the trim sleeves. Stu and his team outdid themselves.. congratulations!

    Thats a great jacket, how do you like the deer in the wrists?
    That's one of my favourite LW things.

    I actually don't have a bike its unfortunate, I drive a truck daily so the jacket won't "ride up" after I break it in. Im either going to have to put my other jackets in "jail" so I can break this in, or sell them??

    These pockets are the one thing i dislike on my CHP, i find them unusable, they are too far back for me and i can't put my hands in them.

    [​IMG]

    Can you guys measure the stitch lines that go around the pocket on yours please.
    The ones going from main zipper to top of pockets are 12.5cm/4.92"
    The ones going from the belt line to bottom of pockets are 6.5cm/2.55"

    2”:: Bottom of pockets to top-stitch line of belt. The uppermost stitch line of the bottom hem, just above the thick portion of leather.

    4”:: Top of pockets to zippers stitch line.

    My short arms have no issue with the pockets. I sort of do an upright row and they then slide right in with elbows by the body/jacket. The angle of my pockets helps, they don’t seem as vertical as yours.

    In The old pattern a reg. Horsehide label was used, now a trojan label is used to reflect the pattern change to a trojan repro

    Great Work John - Socked that one right out of the park -- Home Run!! :)

    I also really like the simplified CHP straight-zip less the belt loops, fur in the cuffs and with the chest pocket instead of the badge holder. Excellent specificaiton and looks like it should break in amazingly well. It will be a great "truck jacket" as already indicated too.
