    Well, this is a very happy day for me. There were always three Freewheelers jackets that I really wanted - The Caboose, The Sunset, and The Mulholland. I also wanted a Brakeman for a while, but trying one on in 2017 made me realize that it wasn't for me.

    I know have all three of those Freewheelers jackets that I wanted. This one was meant to be for me. The jacket is completely sold out in my size in every store, but as luck had it, one in my size popped up here on the Lounge. I actually found it while just lusting after pictures of it on google images. Somehow I stumbled onto @cellini 's sale thread and saw that @GW KY bought it off him and then it didn't work for him.

    Without hesitation, I contacted him and made sure I secured the jacket for myself. At under 10 wears, this jacket was basically heaven sent for me. My only real worry was that this was going to be the first black leather jacket I had bought in years and the last one I tried immediately went back.

    It fits wonderfully. I am not sure if it fits better than the Sunset or not overall, but the sleeves definitely fit better. The construction is unsurprisingly stunning. The only "flaws" I have found so far are that in a couple places, the double stitching doesn't line up exactly, though it does in most places. I love that this is a "flaw" for Freewheelers. This jacket doesn't do anything to change the fact that Freewheelers makes the best stitched/constructed/finished jacket I have ever owned, seen, or handled, and I've handled most of them at this point. The intricacy and accuracy of their stitch work is so gorgeous that I actually sometimes just spend time staring at stitching on my Freewheelers jackets (and my White Kloud and Clinch boots).

    This is the 9th Shinki jacket I have owned now. The leather is also gorgeous. Quite grainy in some areas and so far quite smooth in others, especially on the back. The teacore is already becoming obvious which will look great with my teacore Clinch engineer boots. Obviously there are more details that I will get into when I do a full written review on my website, but as of now I am thrilled to have this jacket. I adore the styling of it and the cut. The collar, the stitching on the handwarmer pockets, the bottom details and the cinches on the side, and the cut make it look special to me.

    And now- too many pictures:

    Best of the bunch dude. No question about it. Fit is *to the nuts*. I absolutely love that jacket. If it gets better than that, I’ve not seen it. Congrats!

    Well, my great regret at not buying myself is tempered by seeing how well it fits you. Congrats.

    Great fit and almost strange to see you in a black jacket. The "California collar" looks so great.

    That jacket is really nice! It's the best I've seen from you and that says a lot. Really, really impressive all around.

    All your three Freewheelers are absolutely superb, but exactly this one definitely seems to fit you best!

    Noooo! Please don’t do that to me!! But after your fantastic fit pics (best jacket on you!) I somehow have to convince myself again that I do have enough jackets and don’t need the Mulholland which more and more turns out to be my favorite black jacket! Congrats from my side! You’re so lucky to find an almost new jacket at that price!!!

    I had to take a run at it, genuinely happy it went to a pure leather enthusiast like myself.

    I put it on Ebay, and had a great offer. Wanted to sell it here and glad it worked out. If Ebay buyer had done buy it now, they would have had it
    ..fate put it it in the hands of dudewuttheheck, and the world is better for it.

    Cheers!!
