    Looks like Thedi are going with more shearling and aviator styles this year.

    https://thedileatherscompany.blogspot.com/2018/04/collection-18-19.html

    MTC-1279118 (Basically an A-1 inspired jacket, with larger front patch pockets.)
    B3 (Literally a B-3 jacket)
    MTC-127985 Grizzly with what looks like a shawl collar?!
    MTC-127946 cafe racer
    MTC-141159/2 padded cafe racer
    MTC-127995 A nice looking shearling collar jacket, reminds me a bit of the Aero Highwayman, but yokeless, and looks more trim. Something's a bit off with the collar, though.
    SJ-1248 shearling lined D-pocket biker jacket -- this one's pretty nice looking.
    MTC-1279117 - A twill gabardine & cowhide jacket.

    Most of these new styles are a miss for me, taking elements of various classic jackets and mish-mashing them in ways that don't work for me. But I like the MTC-127946, SJ-1248. Nothing that I'd trade for my existing Thedi jackets, though.

    Last year’s models look way cooler.

    I think that black one with the shearling collar could be really great!

    I have to agree. I don't like any of the leather-and-cloth styles -- personally if I'm looking at a jacket, I want all leather, or all fabric, not a hybrid. A bit of leather for trim is a different story, like elbow patches, or a collar, or pocket flap, but that's as far as I'd go.

    The hard finish denim and leather ones were genius though.

    I do like this one, but I think the shearling collar could be done a little better. Maybe this style just needs a little fine tuning to get perfect, but I definitely see potential.

  8. I like that denim and leather..!! Some very intricate work done on that one. Plus just imagine a little wear and fading on that denim. Very nice.

    I'll pass on those...prefer a little more "traditional" models overall.

    That's the one.
    I think the combo is brilliant...Denim and goatskin.
    I mean..Just look...

    His hides are amazing, and he's trying something new each year.

    Oh, don't get me wrong. On the whole, I'd rather have someone pushing design, trying new things, taking risks, and having some things that succeed brilliantly while others fail spectacularly. I'm very, very happy with all three of my Thedi jackets. Not everything has to be suited to my tastes.

    I would love to see a Thedi half-belt. Have they or do they do one?

    They posted one on Instagram early Jan. but it's just a frontal shot. Maybe somebody has both sides, I'd love to see it too.

    I suppose Thedi's B3 is for the mediterranean climate. The shearling seems to be thin.

    Are prices posted somewhere or does one need to go VFR direct to him?
