    Feels like winter here again. I’ll pick up the yard in the Goodgal Air comfort. I was on the fence about this one at first. The leather is amazing. Super thick HH and the shearling liner aired out and lost the smell. Once life resumes I think I’ll take it to my tailor and get her good to go for next year.

    the weather had me thinking about HH and shearling/mouton. Such a nice combination of things. The Cal is too small for me but it’s a really nice jacket. Need to get it back to it’s rightful owner. 9A51B33A-0F4F-41C2-89B5-02EF3B0E731A.jpeg

    I've been to Cikarang, Jakarta, Bali and a couple of other states but I am one of the weird Asians in that I was born in a hot country but I love the cold.

    Even during a tech dive I was only in a 3mm wetsuit and a 1.5mm vest w hood. It was 13 degree at 60m and I loved it lol.

    On land 13 degrees, will find me in a sweater and jeans.
    Anything above 24 degrees and I start to sweat like a pig.

    There's no way I can wear a jacket in this weather.

    I was happy in the cold, rain and wind until about 23. Then I moved to Asia and stayed there for a long time. On returning to the UK for a year in my mid-thirties, I realised that I could no longer stand the cold. Jacket weather is anything below 23C for me. Much below 13C and it's layering, and anything below 5C and I am really cold. I am comfortable at 28C to about 30C, but I can stroll about in 36C as long as I'm wearing a cap and have a bit of water. I remember my first Shanghai winter being a real shock to the system after years in Guangzhou/HK heat (even the winters there I found cold). It is strange how you can get used to things so that even minor variations in temperature can feel much colder or hotter. I'm even fairly happy in a jacket in humid rain. I far prefer hotter weather now- so much so that it influences where I choose to live and work.

    That is very true. Humans adapt to temperatures in which they dwell. When Floridians or Californians complain that 50F in NYC feels "freezing", it is real, not just talk.

    cikarang sounds like industrial district, jakarta, and the tourist area of bali are both hot places.
    I think it is also normal for people who are born in hot country to like the cold, and vice versa
    I used to sweat easier when I was 10kilos heavier and eating more meat, with weight loss and less carnivorous diet, and forcing to adapt to local temp by not turning on airconditioner at home I run a lot cooler now. my jackets are all having very simple lining, and eyelets to let air circulates too

    I know your familiar with bk, how is your jacket coming along from them? Reg there is a few jackets on there vintage selection that resembles the 70s style.
    They have a huge selection of cool vintage jackets to choose from. I am disappointed in bks leather options. The victory appears to be amazing problem is its not available an i would not pay that crazy upcharge. Imho they have the biggest reproduction selection available

    Always wanted one of these.. Aero had a similar hide 10 years back too. I managed to snatch up a 50s HB in that once but unfortunately that one didn't fit.. great leather!

    The words "heavy weight" "4oz plus" "4oz plus" " too heavy" always makes me smile, great collection you have Robbie!

    It's Non Stock Flyer (I think the tag said Bronson- can't remember). I wasn't going to go all-out on a 90 pound shirt, so I was really happy with this one. Guy on Ebay was helpful and recommended sizing up, which worked.

    Thanks! It's definitely at least 4oz+ (could be 5oz) as the leather is soo thick but it doesn't require break-in and is easy and comfy to wear from day 1 even if it is really heavy. The leather itself is so unique - many scratches from the wilderness and not for lovers of uniform leather structure.
