    Does anybody have any review or pics of the Thedi MTC-C127913 Military Canvas & Buffalo leather jacket? I love the look on Thedi's website but I haven't seen any other pics or reviews of it. It's calling my name but I'm hesitant to pull the trigger without any other reviews or pics of it. Thanks!

    Those look pretty epic! I do love the olive and brown combination.

    Something like that with the appropriate back-protector pocket would make a fantastic Summer riding jacket - the appeal of the leather, with the denim panels to help airflow and reduce temperature.

    The cut of this is very nice - reminds me of a J106 crossbred with a Lewis Monza. I've seen a lot of shearling Perfecto-styles, but not one quite like this before.

    This has a very cool workman look to it. Are those canvas panels waxed? I can see that being good in rain.

    That denim and goatskin D pocket is very cool. He does not have pricing listed on his page? What, is he charging different people different amounts? I will shoot him an email but curious to see what others have been told for this or similar jackets.

    I don't think he charges any different amounts. My taking is that's just a blog and he simply can't use it as a commercial site, so no prices there. Again: I think he's one of the most talented makers I have ever seen.

    No doubt he is talented. Thanks for the info. For the record, not implying any sort of malpractice, just curious. I tend to try to negotiate haha.

    I really like the canvas/leather combo stuff he does - both the shawl collar and the cross zip are pretty flippin' a. Mazing.

    I was looking at a store brand cross zip in canvas and leather recently, but passed on it because I didn't have the courage of my convictions. However, judging by what Thedi is producing, clearly I'm cooler than I realised.

    I really like the side adjuster here: it is not located at the half belt but at the bottom of the jacket.

    To negotiate is ALWAYS a good idea!

    Have to agree with the Thedi appreciation here. He manages to achieve a classic look and be genuinely innovative with the design at the same time.

    I have one of his classic two pocket cafe racers in black horsehide, which is just awesome. I do sometimes wish I'd pushed the boat out and gone with something a little more exciting, but theres always next time..

    I wouldn't bother with negotiating though, he does have set prices, just doesn't have them listed on the blog.

    It's interesting to see the Thedi brand evolve over time, from a very 70s / early 80s bike jacket theme to incorporate earlier designs as well. Nice to see a brand doing its own thing rather than the mainstream fashion 'me too' stuff. That's the great thing about the companies we love in our niche, that they are able . willing to do that rather than jsut chase the mass market.

    I recently emailed Theo about pricing for 2 different styles of jackets but have not heard back. Sounds like (from another thread here) there are mixed reviews on service and communication. That said, I think he is making some of the most unique and awesome jackets out there.
