    Thanks bud, I posted 3 pictures last Friday on here when it went from the factory to LegendaryUSA's store. I LOVE my 641HH. I'm keeping it for life.

    Love the Soft tail, only wish I could afford one, whats it like to ride?. Ride a Superlow 883. Won a Levi commuter jacket on the Bay yesterday which I think will make a cool summer bike jacket.

    I tell ya what guys, its been a chore getting that HH broke In but she's finally starting to look really good.

    Although my 618hh is really looking good, I gotta say my 141 is getting beautiful! I know we don't tend to get alot of feedback regarding naked cowhide around here but the folds and body lines in the arms are really starting to look tough. I don't know if I just haven't put in the time with the HH like my 141 but comparing apples to oranges, the 618hh isn't holding a candle to the 141.

    I'll try to post some pics after work!

    Congrats to your beautiful jacket! Do you have idea how many lbs on your jacket? I am interesting to get 641HH, just not sure the thickness and weight is too light, thank you!

    It's doing great fellas! The 618HH is definitely one of my favorites! I don't have the opportunity to wear it as much as some of my other leathers, like my 141, mainly due to the style but what I have, it's broke in quite nicely!

    Both the sleeves and the body have developed a beautiful character. It's also became buttery soft and definitely worth the hard work that Iv put in to get it broke it!

    I'm out of town right now, once I get home, I'll take a few pics and let y'all be the judge!

    Get It , I LOVE LOVE my 641HH. It's very heavy just the way I love it. Feels bullet proof.

    Pulled out the 618hh today, still doing great! It’s breaking in amazing, I just wish the shine would calm down just a little more! The bottom three pics show what it looks like when the light bounces off of it.

    @Monitor I haven’t had the opportunity to wear it as I’d like to. Doesn’t fit my daily business attire as well as some of my others. Any suggestions on how to cut that shine down a little...besides just wearing the crap out of it lol? I’d still love to see a nice schott HH good and distressed to see what’s to come.... Iv got the Schott 100 year book and wow...there’s some jackets in there with a nice patina but I’m afraid to get my hopes up that mine will ever look as nice as some of those early 50s model Schotts. I’m sure their quality has changed some.

    Wear it in the rain, has dulled any shine off my black leather jackets. Jacket looks great! I am currently eye'ing a 618 HH, if these weren't so expensive in Europe, I'd have one already.
