    Yep, these new ones are best left in the store. Plus you guys from France don't have to worry about gettin' a good Perfecto. If Vinted is any indication, there's literally one quality vintage cross zip for every French citizen out there. Same Excelled as mine, listed for 60 Euros is listed right now. Size 40.

    Indeed, mine was from vinted also. But 100euros, small sizes are more difficult to find.

    My size! I was about to ask you to PM me the link but I think I already have my bases covered in terms of cross zips.

    Now that is some great styling! Like your new beard arrangement too. That’s what Erol Flynn would look these days…!

    After a weekend of abuse I’ve decided to let the 5 star come up for air. If you are not a fan of faux distressing close this tab! LOL. I probably could’ve done a better job of it if I intended to keep it this way. Two coats of conditioner and some sealant later....easy enough to strip and go full cordo but I’ll see how this wears for now. I can’t decide if I love it or it’s the worst looking mall distress I’ve ever seen...

    I see what you mean. I will say it looks more interesting than the original. The distressing does not look natural (that is super-difficult to do and only Thedi pulls it off, but he is, well, Zeus).

    I kind of like it, but I do see your dilemma.

    If you dyed it down 3 shades it would look good.

    Haha, thank you! It started off as shaving mistake but then I realized I really like it. :D Also, wanted to say something in the sale thread but decided it's best not to because it's a sale thread but you got a really great looking & fitting Schott there and that is a rare thing.

    Yeah I go from loving it to thinking it looks way too over the top. I may try some less invasive means of subtlety darkening the leather before another bout of acetone and dye.

    I think a redye job would add another layer of color and depth. Either way though, I'd rather wear what you did than the terrible color that arrived.

    Bought a cape buffalo “vintage” G-1 from U.S. Wings. Not 100% mil-spec accurate but a really well-made jacket with real mouton fur collar (faded honey blonde) and the cape buffalo leather is very thick (1.2-1.3mm, according to their website), heavy yet soft and pliable. Has a great WWII vibe to it. In the second pic you can see how it compares to an original M-422a (Flying Tiger) jacket. Many Navy aviators wore their jackets looser (and the M-422a jackets were longer in general than the later G-1 models). This longer/looser fit is exactly what I wanted when I ordered this one from U.S. Wings (they were running a 20% off sale at the time, so I couldn’t resist!).
