    Just wanted to share the great work done by JL. Thanks @jonbuilder

    I've been browsing the Thedi website that you shared and you know how that goes lol plus it also helps that your Thedi cross zip has the same design feature ha!

    It finally arrived! My first customer J-106 from Aero arrived last week! They did an amazing job, as being a bigger guy finding a good fit is almost impossible. I am so very excited I cant stop wearing it around the house. Every pillow, seat cushion, and chair smells like Horween FQHH heaven! My Highwayman is getting jealous for sure!

    @Jin431 Great looking jacket and perfect fit. I really like this slim jacket design, pocket placement and collar shape. Good idea to add a removable mouton collar...I'm sure it looks very good. When seeing so many beautiful JL jackets I'm more and more regretting that I didn't visit JL store during my combined business trip + vacation to Silicon Valley + SFO last year October. On the other hand I really enjoy watching pictures from your, Ton's and others JL jackets!

    I love the californian. The havana color looks great on you. The hh is rather thin but they do age beautifully.

    I know not the first picture of this jacket, but there's nothing like wearing a Thedi leather jacket, especially in this canvas and leather combination MTC C1279405 :)

    @Robbie79 the battered tan CR looks great on you. Is that new? How does battered leather feel to wear? All your jackets are so mean looking, the fit is incredibly perfect and the leather looks gorgeous.

    Thank you again. I was lucky the collar design they have on their new pattern was able to be transplanted to my jacket project and the slimmer version makes it so much easier to wear! The vertical chest pocket really grew on me, I didn't like it so much at first when I received the jacket. The aero stf BL should be ready in 3 weeks, just in time for the winter season here (not that we get a real winter though).

    I know JL has always been a good maker but I do notice JL stepping up their game with better construction and more options with the leather they use. They will only get better and I'm so fortunate I live so close by to them. That's too bad that you weren't able to visit the shop then but maybe in the future when things are a little better and you are back in the SF Bay Area you can visit them. Ill be happy to buy you a drink too. Cheers

    Freewheelers Dust Bowl. This one has a couple vertical creases by the neck that is from what I think is from the design of the wool band collar. Arm holes are slightly pitched forward also. It immediately creased like that when I put it on for the first time and on the hanger as well. Just a strange consequence from the collar design.

    I have really come to like this jacket and it feels great since shoulder width and chest is bang on for me. Those creases are odd but I don't look at myself while wearing it.

    I personally like the vertical greases, that breathes life into the jacket, many jackets without creases in the shoulder / chest area look lifeless, uninteresting and often too tight.

    Edit: How does jacket look open/un-buttoned?
