    I think it is fairly new. He’s got a couple new hides aimed at the A2 crowd and I believe this is one. This jacket weighs right just under 5lbs. Super easy to wear.

    I’m with you though. I vastly prefer my mid weight jackets, goat and Vicenza, in comparison to heavy cxl.

    Appreciate it though I admit I take extra care with it's & its as it has been relatively recently that I've fully grasped the difference. The & a is still something I struggle with, the absence of either being most confusing. My language has nothing of a sort.

    I had to look it up.

    It’s is a contraction of “it is” or “it has.” Its is a possessive determiner we use to say that something belongs to or refers to something.

    Sorry, I messed that up. What I intended to say is that I totally agree; my Polish and Romanian friends speak and particularly write far better English than many state educated Anglophones in UK.

    I’ll tell you I am really looking forward to the SJC 33. I suspect I will wear that more than anything else!

    Today it was my 50’s Monarch Horsehide car coat. Terry has one just like it for sale in his latest video.

    Ton, I think we wear too few super-heavy jackets. After a year, my Aero began to show interest and respect for me, I think in another year he will become friends with me :D

    No clue who made this jacket but I love it. Found it on a park bench. Nice, heavy & stiff denim, very beautifully made. Perfect amount of wear.

    Thing is, going back to wearing jeans and textile trousers in general is becoming something I'm disliking more and more with each passing day. While I've never had any animosity toward textile jackets, simply preferring leather, I'm now beginning to downright cringe at the thought of having to wear textile pants.

    I know it is a questionable choice for trousers but it just looks & drapes & feels so much better than any denim ever. To me, at least.

    Anyway, CXL on these is still tough as nails but it's getting there.

    Well here's what happens when you ain't checkin' your cuffs!

    Jacket is beautiful. So is the beach.
