    Hi all! :)

    I did it! I've ordered my first made to order leather jacket.
    From SB.
    And it's amazing!

    Details, please!

    I woke-up this morning to an email from Debs saying my jacket is finished and ready to ship! Just three weeks after putting down a deposit.

    Lookin’ good!
    This is a great color that I can’t wear. Kind of like a baseball mitt...
    Should age beautifully.

    Three weeks - you are a lucky man :)
    My Order had a delivery time of over 6 weeks... due to the new Site and my super duper special Blattwerk Leather that didn't arrive in time.
    I have paid the total amount.

    Thanks. Yes, it is beautiful (in my eyes) - a little 'special', but I like to stand out of the crowd ;)

    Do they follow any particular contract for the A-2 or is it their own intepretation?

    I considered that Blattwerk when I was ordering a cafe racer from SB. It has a fantastic feel, color, and grain. Super-soft and pliable--I only opted for a different hide in light of my plans to ride in the jacket.

    Congratulations on a beautiful jacket!

    Don’t mean to hijack this thread, but I’d love to see a pic of the CR you got from S-B!

    Congrats. Looks beautiful.

    I'm watching for more SB examples. I'm 90% there on an order. Justin, really can't wait to see yours. I'm thinking something similar, the classic biker and want to see how the no epaulets turns out in a brown color.
