    Beautiful jacket, if I wasn’t set in mid season jackets I would look into Thedi collection for sure!

    Also great fit, congrats!

    2 points.

    First: my initial impression of break in time revealed my complete lack of leather jacket knowledge. I was only basing the time off of red wing boots that get worn in rotation. I am one week in and it has softened so much. I'm wearing it daily and since I'm not spending a ton of time outside, it is getting worn indoors (strange looks). By Christmas i think it will be perfect. If it ever stops raining I'll post some progress pics.

    2. Skerritt! Day made. Thankyou.

    3 weeks in softening up very nicely. The break in has made it feel like I've gained an inch in the chest. Any concerns about fitment are a distant memory.

    Got it at Goorin bros right up the street from Mild Blend. Nice shop, nice people, but somewhat limited selection. Hats plus on Irving and Cicero is where it's at.

    I agree, BFD70 should change his name to Viper and be done with it.

    The jacket looks great man. Wear it well.

    Fantastic! I have been looking for several weeks for a Cossack type jacket (just ordered a Bill Kelso A-1 Aeronaut 10 minutes ago). This jacket looks great on you. Enjoy.

    I do like the cut of the Thedi, possibly even more than the Himel Heron. Well done.

    @Bfd70 question if I may sir

    Would you be able to let me know how long the cuffs on it are? I have an interest in cuffs on these styles

    The mustache is seasonal October-March. It gets cold here, gotta keep the lip warm.

    Thedi cuff on a size small is 3” and feels very well proportioned.
