No epaulette accents on this version
Also looking at the grain of the leather in the close-up shots, I don't think HH would have come to mind if I had to guess what it was.
I’m actually thinking this jacket could look better still in person. Not knocking anyone‘s staging or photography skills, but my EBay listings look better than these new Stallion shots. Can’t wait for one of the regulars on here to get their’s for some proper pics and a review.I will say one thing in their defense (doesn't excuse many of the weird choices so far) in that this is better than I expected from the standard Hillside photo they had up for ages.
I wouldn't ever buy another naked cowhide jacket.
I'd never buy a 1928h reissue/ repro either as long as it's a half belt.
That 1928 hh repro is one of the nicest Schott jackets I've ever seenThe current naked cowhide on my trucker and @TooManyHatsOnlyOneHead's 118 is quite nice.
I think you're confusing the 1928H with the PER28.
The 1928H is a repro of a Beck/Perfecto #333 D-pocket motorcycle jacket. As you can see it doesn't have a half-belt.
The PER28 is a repro of a 1920s Perfecto D-pocket aviator, complete with half-belt. I've handled one in person–it's a shame that it's predistressed because the hide is quite nice; the distressing ends up looking quite over-the-top.
Personally I wouldn't care about my number or whether they change their strategy, but if they don't declare that change, it's another slightly flippant turn/ another aspect of slowly eroding trust.I'm guessing that they're over selling. If the jackets are made to order, what do they have to lose? How can anyone dispute that their jacket number is the same as somebody's in another country?
The actual jacket number isn't important to me either. It's really just a point of reference to detail that whoever bought the jacket did indeed get 1 of 100 limited anniversary version jackets. But if they did accept over 100 pre-orders, how then would they handle it? Hopefully not by deception. I'll admit that having this jacket re-introduced in a small run was intriguing enough to be a factor in pulling the trigger on it.Personally I wouldn't care about my number or whether they change their strategy, but if they don't declare that change, it's another slightly flippant turn/ another aspect of slowly eroding trust.
