    The leather is certainly beautiful, and it looks like a good fit to me.
    Welcome to the Lounge!

    Whereabouts in France are you located?

    THX WIndward, no it's just simply "brown FQHH", no vintage, or special request for the color. This color is the best, because my first highwayman was cordovan...I prefer brown...;)

    Very Nice Brown . . .

    AWESOME - :eusa_clap For me this is the real "true" brown with much of character from the beginning. My next jacket must be a brown cause it is indeed very different to the rich dark cordovan - but I also love it.
    Enjoy and wear it in good health

    Maybe your jacket will look like this windward after years of good wear - found this pic years ago but sadly didnt won the auction . . .

    Hello FabMX:

    Looks like a perfect fit to me. The color of the brown is fantastic too. I like those Zip Sleeves a lot more than the version with the wool cuffs inside. What type of bike do you ride?

    Interesting mod on the front without the pockets and the horizontal seams added on the chest, VERY nice design, wish I'd thought of it. Also like the zipper pull on the right pocket, very nice as well, but it looks like you left the left pocket as a regular opening.

    Are you sure its a "regular" Brown FQHH? The creases make it look like the vintage, unless you've had the jacket for a while before taking these pics?

    The fit is perfect BTW...

    Very, very nice! :eusa_clap

    I'd like to see pics of the zip sleeves unzipped. If you could add a couple that would be great.

    That, to me, is the perfect brown leather.

    Right and left pocket are exactly the same. I'm not sure about this is the real brown because i never see a vintage brown, but i ordered a "brown jacket".
    My jacket is about one week, i just "knead" whith my hands. I didn't wear it because here in France now is about 30 Degres with everyday sunny! (It's not normal because last year it was 18 degres!).

    THX all for your comment, i'm now sure is fit good (i was a litle bit sure!). Sorry for my bad english...:eusa_doh:

    I didn't notice that modification, that really looks clean. Definitely matches up to a Super Moto but with the Harley Bobber or Dirt Track style I'd say that would be perfect. Good Luck on your build idea for the Harley.
