I just thru-up !!I’d say even worse than 5 Star. That looks like Hillside’s D- pocket.

It's hard enough to sort through the changing (miss)information coming from the official sources on this... Just trying to keep things straight.That was a typo on my part. If you see the next paragraph, I identify the jackets correctly. I was going to get a 689H myself.
Just went over both Legendary and Schott web pages. I do think this is simply a brand mis management done by their marketing team. There are no D pockets on Schott offering right now, maybe they think it will dilute the Schott Perfecto (the first moto jacket) brand. Funny thing is Legendary has the Beck brand, but vest only? And Schott has actual racer jackets that aren’t being marketed under the Beck name. Some dots are just not connecting.
I do believe those who signed up for this Legendary D pocket will get a great jacket. Hoping the best for you guys, and can’t wait to see them in a few weeks. Lead time says one to three weeks.
I will say this, I don’t recall Schott being named directly as the maker of previous versions (at one point there was a brown version as well).
Perhaps my eyes are deceiving me but new Legendary home page picture appears to just be an enhanced version of the Hillside D-pocket jacket which sells for $641.
I sent an email expressing my concerns about the pictures which seemed to be marketing two different jackets as the Black Stallion. I told them that this was (at best) confusing and I was now uneasy about the purchase and requested a refund to spare us both the time and expense of a probable return.
If I was incorrect about anything in my email, I’m sure they’ll let me know in an effort to preserve the sale. I’ve bought three items from them recently so we at least have a little history. I’d love it if I was way off in my assessment.
This jacket could very well meet everyone’s expectations and I could be missing out. If it is in fact a Hillside and they’re the ones that made my Beck vest (very probable), I think people will be happy with the quality of the horsehide. I guess I’m just having a little trouble getting past the fact that a Hillside D-pocket (as created for themselves) sells for $641. This one could be above and beyond what they do for their normal price point or it could be an overpay in the $900 range….who knows.
I’ll obviously stay tuned to the thread and pass along any pertinent updates.
Money back guarantee on Legendary branded products.
Schott or not, im still going through with it
They told me straight up they only do store credit. I'll be Guinea pig for the loungers lolLegendary branded items are refundable so I might wait it out as well, but I don't know that I'd be comfortable telling non-enthusiast friends I recommended this to not to cancel.

Edit: Hillside is not from NJ, or am I mistaken? Thought they're somewhere in the South
I attached a screenshot above, the context was I want to buy two sizes and they told me to just order one because otherwise it's just store creditThey told you that specifically about returning this jacket?
