Thank you, Tom. I have said this before, but I'll say it again. This community taught me well when I first started exploring leather jackets end of last year. Never had leather jackets before. It was all hoodies and carharttYou really keep shredding this thread with your collection! That Himel looks good enough to eat.
As for this Himel jacket, it is extremely light weight even though it is full grain hide (1.2mm). The fit/ pattern being versatile also helps. Love the lining. I feel lucky to have got this as their 'ready to wear' offering at a good discount. Overall typical himel quality and details at good price and no issues like some FL folks had experienced. Only thing I did not like as much (others may love it) is the leathery smell. It was very strong. I had to hang up the jacket in our sunroom for a whole week and then bag it up with a cedar block to get rid of it.
