Nice collection Nick. Thanks for sharing.
Lol! Yep, seems it was all my fault! :eusa_doh:
How's the jacket looking three years on, Dav? Any pix?
Well apart from it being a lot softer and I'm in need of a hair cut, not much to report really.
Here's a few new pics any way.
Looks good, it certainly looks 'owned' by you. - interesting to see the way black doesn't undergo the same level of colour change that the brown does. The Clooney bearded look suits you too!
Great pictures Nick. Thanks for sharing.
I'm not a great fan of black leather, but that jacket is looking very good.
I have a similar hand-made jacket that a good friend gave me.
I must start wearing it!
Looking good as usual Nick. I'll take Sloan's statement a step further...........you could pass for Clooney's younger brother.
No. Dav IS George Clooney!!
Ha ha Thanks gents!
Looking good! Breaking in very nicely.
How long did it take to soften up the button-holes? I've heard people moaning about how it can take a bit of effort to get them going.
It took a while, probably sometime during the second winters wear before they became somewhat easier to open.
I remember thinking to myself the first time I did them up "now can I actually get out of this", it was a struggle.
It's taken me three months to master the opposite facing American zip on my jacket. The first time I managed it without looking like a dog trying to master a Rubix Cube was a proud day. I also felt slightly ashamed of myself
I wonder why they have them on the other side.
I know driving on the right is down to Napoleon, but I don't think too many zippers were around back then!:eeek:
Well, the zipper is an American invention, so I guess the rest of us are wrong...
Thats interesting. . . here in the US, fasteners like zippers and buttons are put on coats and shirts depending on the "gender" of the garment. So if for you guys American zips are on the opposite side than you're accustomed to, then maybe you've got women's zippers?
weeeeell the version that is used tody was actually made by a Swede....and that company later became Talon.
Wasn't it for an American company though? I thought it was the Lightning Co? That still doesn't explain the weird back-to-front set-up.
I have a G&B Expedition (Indy) jacket with a British zipper that drives on the left hand side of the road and requires all of my ten thumbs to engage and zip. :lol: I suppose that it all relates to what one is accustomed to using (or not).
