    That brown seal goat is dark, huh? It looks near-black in a lot of pics. I bet it will age beautifully!

    Man I just haven’t caught the sun yet. It’s definitely seal/coffee bean brown but I also see gunmetal gray in it.

    Yes! This is so clean looking and fits you very well. You can wear that thing anywhere and it will look right in place!





    Sweeet! So rough and ready front and hooch hauler back? That's so smart looking! Looks great on you, hope the leather stretch out more.



    Yes, sir! They have horse hide on back order and I hope that is good stuff like the goatskin

    Finally have been able to wear leather jackets lately.
    I think this is the only jacket I have ever owned that looks better zipped up than unzipped.

    I agree. The lapels seem to create an odd sag in the chest and the jacket looses its shape a bit. Somewhat true of most cross zips imho but the extreme width on these lapels mandates the jacket be worn closed. I think the only way cross zips look good open is when they are actually a size too small across the chest. You otherwise end up with an open peacoat effect. That’s a big reason why I personally have moved away from crosszips. Well... For now anyway.

    Please I have to see it completely zipped up with that collar! Looks amazing by the way, and those engineers are drool worthy.

    Wedding this weekend for a friend brought out some things I hadn’t worn in a while including this pretty great vintage banana republic leather waistcoat.

    I am the definition of poseur in the "What Jacket Are You Wearing In Your Living Room Today?" thread.
    Pretty sure this Bates was raced as besides how filthy it was when it arrived, it's arm length is 27.5" in a straight line (a 40LL). It still needs a new main zip and could use a liner I guess.
    A few before and after's below .. last two pics not doctored one bit: jacket really came up that white ; )

    Los Angeles finally has jacket weather. Only took to about November for it to happen LOL. I can finally wear a jacket outside and not just inside with my boxer shorts. Let the breaking in begin.

    Schott 118. Think this is my bury me in it jacket. Although I got a couple things in queue that are going to give it a good run.

    Same for me & my 613! Man, I wish any of my Perfectos had that belt snap. It's kind of annoying as it's hitting the sleeve when I walk.

    I know. Totally. Only reason why I went for 118 (well that and I really like the 100 series Schott leather). I guess you could add a snap, no? Ask Schott, they may even send you the proper hardware.
