    I get up early in the morning to have a few hours to enjoy it when it's cool enough! Lovely thing! CXL will never feel light, but it's not much warmer than even a 2.5oz leather, even with the lightweight tartan. This batch of steer is waxy af!

    If your referring to the jacket posted directly above your comment? The jacket @JMax owns. Thats made by Lost Worlds. Site can be found here if you want to look http://www.lostworldsinc.com/
    Be forewarned the site looks like its from 1998 and has a lot of hyperbolic language, but they make a killer jacket. Hope this helps!

    One and the same. I call her my off-duty supervisor, The Polskanator, things like that...but most of the time it’s under my breath.

    Haha, she literally just “screamed” that I forgot a key ingredient. Guess who is putting the LW back on and heading to the corner market to finish the mission. Haha.

    In my house, she is the general and I am the corporal (on a good day) . . . I wouldn't have it any other way. In fact, I introduce her to contractors, salespeople, etc, as the general . . . so that it is clear who will be making the decision.

    Exactly right. Yesterday we had the AC repairman at our residence for a coil cleaning. The corporal was left to deal with the situation. In fairness, it gets really hot without AC in South Florida and my General really dislikes the heat, so I usually, and very carefully, ask her to leave. Anyways, once the work is done I am inspecting the AC and I hear a strange noise. When I mention it the technician tells me its normal. I then ask him if he met my wife prior to her leaving. He says yes, and slowly swallows whatever he had in his mouth. I tell him that she has the hearing of a bat and the memory of an elephant, that if she gets back and hears this new noise, she will have his ass in a sling. He understood and set upon finding the cause of the noise. It took him two minutes, a loose screw. Crisis averted, both for the maintainer and her corporal.

    Wow, looking forward to the “more to follow” part. Be interested in how it compares to some of your other stellar jackets. Quite favorably from the looks of it.

    Outstanding J!!
    You saved a man’s life.
    I often wish i could contract my ex-General to be on call for any “discussions” needed. No prisoner would be taken.
    Oh, you forgot...mass spectrometer nose. “Did you smoke a cigar”? (Last week).

    Haha, that’s right on too. A Bloodhound nose can lead to all types of uncomfortable questions. Though she never cares what I’ve been up to. Don’t know if that’s good or bad.

    Iconic Black steerhide Highwayman today.
    Well used with tons of character.
    A perfect ‘grab & go’ jacket.

    Shout-out to Dena at Great Leather for the stellar sleeve work. Tough pattern and leather to work with but she was up to the task and nailed it.
