    the back looks like a disaster, full action back that doesn't retract, back darts with strange triangular reinforcement stitches that probably causing those weird dimples, huge upper sleeve. Marc's RRL jacket there has a much better pattern on the back for the same design.

    24" ptp. 22" back length (56 cm) worn with low waisted jeans.

    Some patterns have a short back length by design and I think it looks great on this one. I even think this particular jacket would have looked odd if it would have had a 24" back length.

    This Thedi cross zip in horsehide brown treated (wash and wax method) should be amazing.

    Some of you may enjoy the attire in this music video from Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, a band of brothers from the southside of Chicago. The sons of Phil Cohran, who played with both Sun Ra and the AACM [the latter is famous here locally, not sure about elsewhere], they used to busk on the streets of downtown Chicago & around El stops, but moved to Queens NY a while back to reach greater fame (more info).

    This is nearly my size. I don’t have the balls to wear it but I appreciate it as a work of art.

    Cresco was a cool label and they hung around for a really long time. See mainly bad looking late 70’s early 80’s styles come up on eBay and Etsy. But the early longer Halfbelts were sooo cool.

    Come to think of it I may use that burgundy Cresco as the build for Shawn’s new “CXL” hide.

    It’s quite impressive eh? It’s on Etsy. I forget the name of the technique where the design is burnt into the leather. I’ve seen it done with wood too. It’s all done by hand. The symmetry is what strikes me the most. I’m tempted to buy it as a display piece as I find it to be really beautiful!
