    Catching up with this thread, it's ace to see some love for waxed cotton and canvas. I'm always in waxed cotton (because Britain), and one of these days I'll get round to sharing some pics.

    I always wonder if you wear all of your jacket sleeves unbuttoned and what's the reason behind it.

    I couldn't do it. It would annoy me so much to see them unbuttoned and feel my wrist lose.

    Yeah I wear all my leathers that way. Always keep the zip cuff open to. Unless I'm on a really cold ride. Most of the time I can't get the zip closed all the way anyway...

    Ditto. Well, I don't have any jackets with cuffs but the two that I wear the most have sleeve zippers that don't have the sleeve zip lined so they get pretty wide when unzipped. Sometimes for extra blasphemy, I roll up the sleeves only 'cause I can. I think that looks pretty stupid, though. XD

    today I collected my jacket back from adding an extra line of stitches along the main zipper flap, I prefer non visible stitches as far as it can be done, but apparently after the leather has soften a bit, and how the jacket fit, lately the main zipper was getting exposed and leaving unsightly roll at the edges, so I asked for an extra line of stitches through the zipper tape to make it really strong, it is a compromise but now it will faithfully cover the main zipper all the time, they pick a very stealthy thread color it is almost invisible, I also ordered a glasses soft pouch to be worn on the belt from my sketch, and they didn't charge me for the jacket fix, so I'm a happy guy right now.
