    Fine creek. Leon custom.

    longer sleeves on the shirt and shorter sleeves on the jacket are not ideal, especially when the jacket is zipped up. I need to pick my base layer with sleeve length in mind.

    At the risk of my photos in this thread being somewhat similar, another outing in my Buco J24L. Screenshot 2021-09-26 155957.jpg

    Fits you great but... Seems like you've got quite a few issues going on with this jacket that you're trying to justify and that's what, a $2K jacket you're wearing? In my view, if a jacket I've paid that much for doesn't make me feel "Holy crap, this is literally the best jacket I ever had!" each time I put it on, like my Walter Dyer does at a fraction of a cost, I'm not sure you're getting your money's worth here.

    I've been trying to incorporate this approach to all the clothes that I buy and it goes something along the lines of, if there comes a situation when I'd rather grab whatever else I've got lying around, over something I paid major money for - For instance, short evening walk with a dog on a rainy day - What good is the pricey item for?

    On the other hand, like I said, it looks really good on you and I wouldn't change a thing about it, fit-wise, so it all depends how the jacket makes you feel. If you can't return it, give it time. Looks to me that it can't be all that uncomfortable and besides, it's the only thing you can do at this point so why the heck not just enjoy it. :)

    I love that you're getting so many jacket wears in Texas. Makes my complaining about Los Angeles weather seem very snow flake so to speak. Lately, mornings have been chilly out here though, so I'm getting one jacket in until about 10:30ish. And then usually at night around the house I put on another. Really digging how even after 10-15 steady wears really starts to transform it. Picked up something that had been on my wish list for a while. I'll post some pics later. But I finally got my rotation down to about 10, so I can easily wear each jacket at least once per week. But I got 2 more on the way (that LL Lightning and a future FL) so we'll see if I need to streamline a couple down the road. Any case, glad to say jacket weather is upon us. Got some hot days later next week, but without a doubt, mornings and night time in the least, you can wear a jacket without looking like a total freak LOL.

    Thanks for all the input, guys. @ton312, the leather is pretty stiff and a medium weight, but it feels like it'll break in relatively fast. And it's comfortable already... Not like the beastly Schott 613 that I gave up on last season.

    It is a step above in the Deerskin ratings. The more Tailored Deerskins can be quite nice and a bit harder to find. The Color is true.

    I know. I've grown to like it myself. This one would be more difficult for me to part with. I've thought about contacting you on the Taubers, I know your interest.

    Seriously impressed. The design is exceptional - although this jacket will work for a distinctive body type - that is, if you have relatively short torso (0 tummy) and long legs. BTW - this particular style would work really well in deerskin and the pockets+cuffs being stiff leather like cxl - giving some shape. Again - congrats for this one.

    Thank you, i love to sample deerskin or other soft yet thick juicy hide, one day. indeed I picked different leather thickness for the pocket and cuff hoping the thinner leather will be broken in around the pocket and cuff and would age slightly differently.
