    Speaking of cross zip...I just got word from Aero that my order for a J-106 is going into actual production. I was worried that they would not be able to make it, as I am bigger than the largest base size they offer. The folks at Aero are great, they are doing a custom size up pattern for me. I am super excited and I cant wait. However, this means that I have to get rid of a jacket (to keep a happy home life, I agreed that if a jacket comes in, one must go)...so therefore I will need to sell one of my cross zips. I narrowed it down to one of my three Schott Perfectos, which one do you think I should purge? All three fit about the same (the 118 is a size 52, the 618’s are both 54’s). The 118 is about 7 years old, and is especially thick and nice and has not been worn only a few times. The 618 in horsehide is beautiful, and about 5 yers old, and a bit more worn but needs to be completely broken in as well. When i first bought it I was a bit disappointed as it was thinner and more lightweight that I was expecting, but it is still very cool and is developing nicely. The last jacket is my new 618 in brown steerhide. I got this during the beginning of the pandemic when Schott had their 25% off sale. It is again thinner and lighter than i expected, the brown is not the deep near black brown i had hoped, and I don’t really care for the finish and appearance of the steer (at least in unbroken in looks). On the upside it is nice and creaky (as is the horsehide), something I am very fond of. My thought is to purge the steerhide, but what do you guys think? I have to get rid of one, as i am at seven jackets and I also just ordered a new Dainese Adria race suit...so I don’t want to end up in the doghouse!

    Got me a US Border Patrol goatskin bomber for US $80 in near mint condition. What I like about it (along with the price) is it's an actual issued working jacket not just a wardrobe queen repop. It has a G1 style back. A 42 fits me well - 26 inch back; 26 inch sleeves; 19 inch shoulders; 23 inch pit to pit. The goat is very nice.

    Two weeks ago, I moved from desert adjacent to the beach. Loving the new climate, which is far more conducive to outerwear. Have worn more jackets during the past two weeks than I previously wore over two months.

    Thanks -- taken from my roof top sundeck.

    Thanks -- loving the new lifestyle. My doctor repeatedly urged me to walk 30+ mins a day, but I balked. Now, I walk the dogs along the water every day for 30-60 mins.

    Branded Garments CHP style. Shout @Monitor for giving me advice on the history of this brand. I'm super glad I picked this up on Ebay. I think the best $205 I've ever spent. Super and I mean super thick leather. Probably 20 years old and was used a lot (I can tell by the grime and nicotine that came out of it after a wash) and barely a scratch on it. Gave it a coat of coconut oil, maybe one more tomorrow in the sun. Sleeves a tad long but they still a little wet. Hoping they cinch up a tiny bit.

    Simmons Bilt Nebraska for today's Sunday Harley ride. Yesterday was way too wet. We have just had the wettest November for 30 years already and still half the month to go ! Weather forecast still says 50% chance of rain this evening.
    Carpe Diem ( seize the day !) Had a pint of "Captain Sensible" pale Ale before my Kebab. That's me thru' and thru' haha...

    I wonder if that’s named after the Captain Sensible from The Damned?
