    There's nothing funny about it...I love my sherpa lined Levi truckers...like wearing a warm marshmallow.

    Looks like your jacket is starting to break in "just a little". Looking good Dave.

    Looks great! May I ask how the process went? Do you submit measurements or buy a stock size jacket and adjust that?

    Mild temps in Chicago lately. Plenty of wear on the IH 23oz OD. Interesting denim. Seems to give in to creasing and fades much quicker than the indigo 21oz selvedge. Won’t be long before temps force me to hang it up but thus far I’m really impressed with this jacket. FWIW it outweighs many leather jackets I’ve owned. No small feat for a textile piece.

    Thanks! It really is one of those jackets I can hardly walk by the closet without putting on or touching. Silly but true.

    I got lucky and found one as new in my measurements on the secondary market thanks to the help of one of the members here. It truly hadn't been worn. I was in disbelief when it arrived. I was so impressed I called Cal to praise them for their craftsmanship.

    I hear mixed reviews on the process with Cal but honestly if I received this jacket I'd forget about any bumps along the way. Its not often I put on a jacket and think this a forever jacket.

    Think I like the jacket?

    If anyone has any questions on specifics of the jacket itself feel free to ask, but unfortunately I can't help on the ordering process.

    That’s the first modern Cal I have seen in its natural habitat. Looks great. I would love to see more pics of it. That collar looks crazy good too.

    Thanks again! I love the collar! I was complimented on it tonight by a friend. She actually pet it and said she loved it! Lol She's into jackets and is the only girl I've met that asked before is that a Langlitz? I was shocked she even knew who they were.

    Back to the Cal...

    I'll get some more pictures of it up. Showing off the grain. Maybe in the other thread or its own? I know I'm very happy to actually have one in the wild. I haven't seen another.
