    Yeah I know how to work the angles. LOL. It’s definitely close, but that’s only good with horseshoes and hand grenades.

    John Chapmans first Goodwear Ventura. As I recall this was his first use of Shinki horsehide too.

    In honor of the USAF birthday (Sept. 18, 1947), I’ve been wearing my Goodwear A-2 lately.

    Going hard with the @Carlos840 trademarked spraybottle/water break-in process today. Creases starting to form on the sleeves already. IMG_20210920_103214.jpg IMG_20210920_122950.jpg IMG_20210920_123007.jpg IMG_20210920_103214.jpg

    Dude, nice jacket!
    I would not have thought you would be into the LL style, but it really works on you.

    The belt completes the (awesome) look.

    It's new and shiny and the hardware is quite 'in your face" but the design is so cool. I Just need to wear it and get used to the feel and look.

    It's been interesting seeing the casualisation trend spread, just a couple of years after many big operations in the City dropped 'dress down Fridays'. DDF was unpopular with a lot of people, simply because 'business casual' meant buying a third wardrobe to go along with the work clothes and casual clothes. Funny how these divisions have only become more sharply pronounced, if anything, in menswear in the last thirty odd years.

    Would pair nicely with these:

    Peter Christian's this last season. I'm still torturing myself looking at them. I don't really *need* them, but.... I had a pair of lace-up wing-tip co-respondents made in very similar colours a decade or so ago; since I got really into penny loafers in the last few years, these really appeal. Would tone in nicely with your jacket! :)

    It's an interesting, Americanised take on Lewis' normal design choices with the belt; if memory serves, the only other jacket with a belt rather than side-straps in their catalogue is the Bronx, which in 1956 they designed with a leather buckle with no pin in order to avoid tank-scratches with the very different riding position adopted by their target market as compared to US jackets. Looks good. Like a Perfect without the coin pocket, features-wise, but still has a distinctly Lewis air about it.
