    Does look good! Personally I’d opt for the Thedi version myself. His take is more interesting to me by virtue of the hide but for a black version this looks really sharp.

    Agree with Ton's point, that looks quite similar to Thedi's Hector buttoned version which I found even more attractive. Black looks a bit boring for this pattern to my taste. Though, vintage black Shinki (blackened brown, i.e. teacore Shinki) might work also well with that.

    They've released this jacket a few times before and it looks great. I don't think I would do another button front jacket, but I do think it looks awesome.

    I am biased of course, but for this jacket, I would go with Thedi over Freewheelers every single time :)

    I associate Freewheelers with other patterns

    It’s been around for several years. The flapped chest ticket pocket is a nice touch.

    I've tried the 4-corners jacket twice, but the cut always felt strange. This probably due to the fact that the jacket has an A-/Bellshape-cut with a wide hip flare. If you are a sporty / athletic V-type, the jacket is probably not for you.

    His picture illustrates the hip flare best:

    The Four Corners is a great jacket and having owned 3 or 4 Thedi and a few freewheelers I would personally lean toward Freewheelers as a better jacket but that is just my opinion and there is certainly nothing wrong with a Thedi. Thedi attaches buttons better than anyone else and one of the best I have encountered in that respect.

    With that all being said, I'd really like to get a Four Corners jacket one day.

    I have been to that McFly shop the OP posted the link from and it is a cool little place.

    I agree with you FW makes excellent jackets. I've also had/have a few models from both. However, since I have owned leather jackets from Thedi Leathers in their used finish, I find the leather used by other manufacturers some kind of "boring". In the end, it's always an individual matter...
