They are both fantastic jackets, and the Brooks just feels the part of being really badass. When I see them on, I prefer the look of the Kehoe which is more of a casual weekender about town jacket IMO. The Kehoe while being an authentic racing shirt seems a bit more civilian, if that makes sense.

Finally! Took an extra week to arrive because Fedex held the package and insisted I fill out a "Importer Identity Form" and provide the missing details for the customs declaration. Leather is horsehide per the label - no idea what kind, but it's really nice material. At a size 36, it has pretty much the same cut and fit as my ELS Church that I've written about previously. Hand warmer pockets are larger though - which is nice. These jackets seem to run really small, as I usually wear a size 34, and this is still a pretty snug fit. I find myself exclaiming "damn, that's nice" whenever I see the back of this jacket, lol.

That one is a very cool racer fit, question, do you alter the hem of all your shirts? They all seem to have the perfect length untucked with your jackets.
Thanks.
I had my last few shirts made with the short length and had many of my older ones shortened.
Since I never tuck my shirts in and don't need to for any formal occasions, short shirts are the best solution for me.

After playing this game for 11 years, I seldom receive a jacket that makes my jaw drop like this Kehoe did yesterday.

Yes, the Kehoes of that era are hard to beat! Highly underrated I think in relation to some of the other brands. This looks to be more or less the same era as mine, though mine has the slanted pockets:

This makes me want to throw all my jackets into a burning 50 gallon drum. INSANELY COOL!

I have no words for how much I like that! Big congrats on yet another great collector’s piece.
