    I know most on here have their own opinion of LW, whether that opinion is shaped by their website or a single conversation with Stuart. He’s been nothing short of professional with me and I appreciate it. Most importantly the fit and finish of LW jackets are top notch and made with the highest quality materials. This is my 2nd LW jacket and I am thoroughly impressed and since Stuart let me add a little customization to liner and sleeve length I believe it fits & feels perfect. I ride a min of 5 days a week so getting the sleeve length right to me was a very important.

    PS, I'm rocking the COIVD-19 facial hair since I've been working from home for the last 2 weeks and will continue on for the remainder of the April...

    Here are the stats.
    Buco J23
    • Black 4oz HH
    • Size 40r with brown collar
    • Satin liner (not quilted)
    • 26 inch sleeve length (not 25.25)
    • #10 solid brass zipper (not wire)
    • Hang Chain
    • Add studded belt
    • Add black collar

    I'd say this is as perfect as it gets. It's how I'm hoping my jacket will fit though in all likelihood, that ain't happening. Kris, how tall are you, if you don't mind me asking?

    Looks great. Is this a custom order? How heavy is the jacket?

    Yes, normally comes with quilted liner not satin and normally a 40r gets a 25.25 sleeve not 26. Will check weight later and reply.

    Jacket looks perfect. Great fit. When you say add black collar are you referring to the snap on mouton? It looks brown in the photos (which is better imho). Stu f’d up the collar on my j-23. Somehow it was my fault. Somewhat soured my opinion of his wares but as your jacket and many others have shown, when he gets its right, he definitely gets it right. Congrats!

    I ordered it with both the black and brown collars. First 3 pics are with the brown collar and 4th pic is with black collar.

    After I ordered and paid for both collars he emailed me asking me which color I wanted, it may have been mistake. So to head off any mistakes at the pass I sent him and email every couples of weeks asking a random question and when he replied I would respond with thanks and I’m looking forward to my J23 with... then list all the options I chose.

    That looks great, congrats!
    I almost ordered 2 collars for my CHP but decided it was overkill, you are making me rethink my decision...
