    The steerhide ones are some of my all-time favorites. @Will Zach the sleeves on yours look great, I always felt they looked incredibly wide on me. Great jackets!

    Went with the TLW Illinois PD after work today, it's been a couple weeks since I've worn it.
    Mostly been wearing the wool or the vintage Fidelity Cafe I've been liking so much since I got it, I don't currently have that many jackets so I don't post them every day.

    It's been cold wet and windy today, and after a work day that started with working outside in the rain at 3:00am I needed a warm cozy stout jacket that really hugs me.

    60s Windward in what I think is some kind of lambskin arrived. Huge pit to pit, and pretty darn short for me, but the sleeves are nice and long. I haven't fond a Vintage that fits perfectly although the Monarch Long Half Belt is pretty damn close, only because the sleeves were expertly lengthened. The Windward is indeed light, weighing in just under 3 pounds. More silliness me wearing leather jackets on a tropical island, and still having fun. Thanks T.

    Wearing the Schott 613SH again, though I switched to a Buzz Rickson's L-2 for a couple of hours.

    Right up there with all those Goodwears! Easy on the back and easy on the Wallet! I bet John C. would approve of the Windward. He has a Vintage heart.

    Thanks, it is a new one just arrived from Wosfbrae Custom Hatters (@belfastboy). It is a Silverbelly, 160gr Ukrainian rabbit felt, suede finish. 2 7/8" raw brim, 6" open crown with top crown and side venting, and unlined with bright copper grosgrain ribbon, and neutral brim binding. I’m digging it.
