That's unfair, you strongly dislike Stuart, not LW...
Stu and whoever made my last jacket so that's all of LW. XD But yeah, I love the product still.
There are many jackets i don't really wear, the Himel is no1 in that club, my Aero bootleggers are worn once or twice a year, i never wear my Schotts, really i usually wear LW or Vanson, to me the other ones are a collection and a way to compare jackets against each other.
I don't feel the need to sell a jacket just because i don't wear it often, as long as it has some cool feature that i appreciate. I enjoy them for their construction, their leather, their features, not necesserally wearing them.
But i am and have always been a collector, i have collected everything from stamps to rocks, coins to spanners, cards, bass guitars, you name it...
Haha, no need to justify the collecting habit as I have that same bone in my body. I mean, I live in the friggin Caribbean for god's sake and I own a collection of leather and cotton jackets meant to be worn in spring, fall, and winter outside of the tropics. But I love doing it all the same.
For me, it started with cards, comics, collectibles and gravitated to motorcycles and now menswear items and bonsai. I just like to collect things I find valuable to my personal tastes and hobbies.
Did you have a problem with the craftsmanship or the people themselves?
It's a long story but I just had some issue with the company, is all. Made a thread about it, it's still somewhere.
Thank you for creating this thread Carlos. I just stumbled on it yesterday and it’s helpful to me I understanding pattern/fit/and measurements.
I’m still gun shy about my next build, but I’m hopeful it comes out the way I hope.
What about your Thedi, any wears?
I have worn it m`ybe 5 or 6 times, got cought in the rain in it, it got wet pretty fast and after drying was covered of weird stains... I like the fit and the construction, but i am not a great fan of the leather.
Hey @Carlos840, I'm trying to determine sizing in some of the jacket models you own. Any chance you could add your arm length from shoulder to wrist in your measurements?
