    I just received my new Eastman ELMC Californian in "Havana" brown. Posted a pic here (sorry it's sideways...I'm technically challenged). Man, I love this jacket...It fits me well and it's very wearable. I own a couple of Aero's and I love them, but they can be work to get on/off and are heavy, thick etc. Don't get me wrong, I love the Aero's but there's something about this new Eastman that really makes me smile. The weight is perfect, it's substantial, not too light but lighter than the Aero's and slips on and off very nicely. Superb (let me say that again SUPERB quality). The jacket has a true luxury feel too it...When I wear it I feel great! I was a little on the fence about the Havana color...but I gotta tell ya, it's beautiful and very rich looking. I've received lot's of looks and compliments in the few times I've worn it. Importantly (and those of you who are on this forum can appreciate...Most of these high end leather jacket are great, but you can always find something about them that is less than fully satisfying)...That is not the case on this baby...I love everything about it...Really impressed beyond expectation!

    Congratulations man!
    Looks like a good fit and I love the color. I own two Eastman jackets myself and would agree with everything you said regarding Precision and quality of construction.

    Really beautiful color! Fit looks good from what I can tell. I’ve been on the fence about a lighter weight jacket for early fall and spring. This guy or something from Norshor is what I’m thinking. What’s the liner like? I’ll second the more pics request!

    Interesting you should mention Norshor...I have one on the way. Regarding the liner...Sort of a silky solid greenish goldish fabric that doesn't add weight or thickness. Also (as mentioned) it allows the jacket to slip on/off easily. Trust me on this Eastman...I really love it!!

    This jacket is on my radar as well. It’s quite nice. Just a bit unsure about going with Havana or walnut brown.

    Yeah I like that Walnut as well, but I have other jackets in sort of that color...I took a gamble on the Havana, but I must say I'm glad I did. It's got a richness about it (perhaps more so than the more utilitarian darker color)...But ya can't go wrong on this one. They have it in Black as well for the badass look!

    I've very quickly become an Eastman addict, 1 led to 2 led which led to 5 lol.

    I have the Californian both in Walnut and Black and agree completely, its a great lighter weight jacket and the sateen lining is so smooth it moves and flows on the body so much more than jackets lined with wool, it really does feel luxurious to wear.

    I really like the Havana but don't think the lighter colour would look good on me. @Fonzie has the Havana Californian and it looks great on him as well.

    The only downside is the lack of customisation apart from a Long size BUT if they fit you, oh brother, you won't look back!

    What do you about the color looking good on you...What is your take on this? I'm curious as I often hear this concept? Would be interested to hear what you think? I think the Havana looks good on me...but I like to think the others would as well...but what do I know haha

    I have REALLY fair skin and light skin tone colours on jackets and shirts etc just don’t look good on me.

    Big fan of these jackets, can I ask how tall you are and if you went for the long or regular version?

    I'm 6 foot even and weigh 185. Mine is the REGULAR. Mofo fits me like a dream! I'm always fearful of longs as they tend to have a gorilla arms sleeves which I don't care for.
