    That's the coolest jacket you got, @dudewuttheheck !

    Switched to Speed Demon later on. Using the most of this day as it might be my last chance in a long to wear leather. Back to t-shirts, shabby jeans and sneakers tomorrow...

    Whenever in doubt, I put this jacket on and it reminds me why it's my favorite. I guess I'm stuck with it, for better or for worse. And when I try to think of any other jacket I'd rather have, I can't. I guess this'll do.

    Thanks @jonesy86 !! :)
    @Monitor Thanks! I think my coolest is my San Mateo, but that jacket might be too cool for me. This one matches up with me better :p Also, I wanna see full shots where I can actually see those beautiful engineers. Don't cut them off, you tease!

    That's exactly it - You need to dress down with San Mateo, otherwise it's too cool, if that makes any sense! San Mateo is a statement. :D
    I tried to catch the boots too but the stupid phone won't stand at that angle. That's the downside of being single, gotta take selfies.

    Yeah that's true. It tends to look best with an otherwise very simple outfit. I even prefer not to wear a hat with it.

    I figured that was the reason. A shame though as those are great boots!

    Good Wear Leather Coat Company Two Tone Italian Horsehide in russet with seal accents.
    Taking a break from the beach, thought I would see if I still fit into this jacket. I don't wear jeans, or leather jackets much these days, and it was cloudy so I gave it a go, but just couldn't put on any shoes. This jacket is really a unique design and probably the only one like it. JC sure does nice work.

    I’ve abandoned all common sense/ logic on this jacket. I’m sending it to Dena tomorrow to narrow the sleeves. I don’t know... Maybe it’s covid brain. Scratched up hide, meh construction. There’s something about it though. Must be the weight. My spectrum is showing. Bon voyage turd.

    really? would girlfriend or wife would always be willing to take pictures from front side and back each 3 times almost every single day sometime twice a day?:D

    I put a cellphone tripod in front of a mirror, so I can roughly see how I look through the reflection of the cellphone screen on the mirror and capture with remote.

    That spread collar works so good with the curved frontpanel design!

    Actually, yeah! My ex loved to take photos of details, she'd take the additional 10 photos of the snaps, zippers and grain, anything she found interesting on a jacket she normally didn't care much for. It was nice.

    Been doing this for some time now. Get a cheap ebay DSLR from the mid-2000's that works on SD cards, keep it mounted on it, move it around. Easier to use than a cell phone, and can set the resolution to a lower MP so it loads right in on FL. I use a Nikon D60, the Tripod, which is a ProMaster brand, may cost more than the camera these days: https://www.promaster.com/Product/3426

    A nice D60 outfit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-D-D6...060014&hash=item4b7a74d9b6:g:Nx0AAOSwRSpezKQ6

    Any smilar camera or point and shoot will work very well, and since most of the deprecaition is already gone, you don't take such a hit. (Such as a new i-phone for $799 that will be worth $0.00 in 2 years.)
