    It's been raining all day and i have been switching between these two to get them wet and break them in:
    @JMax and @dannyk this should give you an idea of the fit of the HD.
    I'll try to take better pics once they are both propoperly broken in, will post a review of the Cycle Champ once i have good pics too.

    In the short time i have been wearing them i have developed a soft spot for the Champ, it fits really well and has some really cool sleeves, i prefer them over the Commando, i also prefer the body length. (both are size M)
    A CXL Cycle Champ would (actually, "could") be the end of the road.

    Edit: Apologies for the crap pics, good jackets deserve better pictures...

    @Carlos840 Awesome. I want that HD at some point. I dig the subtle spot work. Fits great too.

    Not a Thunderbird back either. This is nicer imo. This may be the pattern I use for my build with Vanson. Though a pocketless D and no patch pocket on the right side. Perhaps I’ll see if they can base my design/pocket configuration on another famous Harley jacket.

    I don't know what convinced you to sell the first one you had, but don't listen to that voice if it comes back!

    I have literally had the Vanson HD Cycle open on my phone for about a year. I was talking to @JMax about it like two years ago. Just have 3 jackets and a couple of pairs of boots I promised my fiance I would move before I got anything new. With Covid, Work, and Ive been sick (not covid related) myself the last month I havent done it. SO when I said Im excited to hear and see more about I mean it. For some reason as we all know around here there doesnt have to be an actual reason, sometimes we see a jacket and fall in love. This has been the one for me.

    Thanks - It's not coming back (that voice inside my head). :)

    This jacket is creasing up - showing grain all over the place. The arms are quite comfortable at this point. As I am 100% working form Home for the forseeable future, I'm committing myself to wearing this, or the Aero 4-pocket CR pretty much every day, all day for the next month or so.

    Oh I forgot about this. My fiancé is a part time burlesque performer. Their troupe name is The Miss Demeanors for anyone curious they have an IG (the.miss.demeanors716) and Patreon(the_miss_demeanors) and hell yeah I’ll gladly share all that with you guys; help mama bring home that money. Got lots of work to do on our house! Haha. Plus they have big Halloween plans. But i bring this all up because this past weekend we were out thrifting cause she needed stuff for her costume. She found success and as did I. I can’t recall I bought two things one was 4 dollars the other 8. So for either 4 or 8 bucks I decided I couldn’t go wrong on this. Why the hell not? Now I have something to wear for those restaurants/bars that are kind of fancy but I don’t feel like wearing a tie. I could wear this with jeans or throw that tie on if need be.

    This one was very clean, I did not do anything. But if they are filthy, I put the jacket into a warm bath with a mild detergent, agitate by hand, rinse well, dry lying flat over 5 days or so, treat with Obenaufs or Pecards if the leather stiffens.
