    Badalassi is great for boots, and ages beautifully.

    Guppy, looking at that jacket again I realize that we were married in a previous life (the jacket and me). It's only right that you let her come back to me for a fair price. Deal?

    I'm sorry. I misunderstood. Thought it was for leather coats.

    Vanson's Deer-tanned Cowhide - per their website, it can be done in many colors and the lighter ones, such as this (and other even lighter ones I saw), will darken with sunlight and wear. This and the olive green are freaking calling me. Loudly.

    Hi Mark,
    I've just realized that I never got back to you after all this time. Of course, I've pulled the trigger ever since and bought the Baloo jacket from MF. Size 40 ended up to be the correct size even though it might be on the larger side. I'm glad I didn't pick up size 42 which would have been way too big for me. Actually, what surprises me the most with MF apparels is the sleeves length. It appears to me that they're always a tad oversized and the cuffs cover half of my hand most of the time. Otherwise, the fit is correct! So if you haven't made up your mind yet about owning a Baloo jacket, be sure that it is pretty nice stuff (awesome quality as to expect from MF) and the look is second to none. As for the size, I would say that the fit is quite loose and not tight at all as it may be the case with other vintage leather jacket.
    I hope this will help and do not hesitate to ask if further questions arise in your head!

    Epaulet just announced they have enough leather to make seven more jackets with Aero.

    Yeah I got in on this, I practically begged them to make me a Sheene rather than a cafe racer but the original run from July was over and I by the time I saw about it I had missed out. The proprietor Adele was kind enough to scrounge up some more of this natural leather from comipel tannery to facilitate my order, and I guess enough for several more jackets as well. I had to pay through the nose but I’m glad some other folks will get another chance to get in on this as well.
