The love hate I have with this one. Probably my most evolved jacket. I've literally beaten it to break it in, I'd say 85% there. At least 10 shades of brown in various nooks and crannies. But the CXL isn't very forgiving on this paterrn. Probably need a size up or lose 10 pounds to be comfortable. No way I'd go through that break in journey again from scratch though. First world problems, I know. Might see this one on classifieds sooner or later. In the meantime, it gets quick wears here and there. And honestly, I can stare at this one just sitting on a hanger. If I ever opened a leather store, I'd have this one in a showroom on display.

Another McCoys Nelson day and, in a break with what seems to be TFL tradition, a photo of me sitting down wearing it.

My absolute favorite jacket today. This is the one that started it all for me back in 2019. The one Carrie told me not to buy, my yeah I know it’s too small but that’s ok because I didn’t eat this week and I’m playing a show tonight Board Racer. After 3 years it’s like a well broken in second skin, only it’s torture when zipped.. size 36, my other BRs are 40’s. I still LOVE it

This Iron Heart Split Steer Trucker doesn't photograph well, but trust me... the leather is amazing! Super easy to wear, cozy and warm. Although, being a button up the wind gets past the front of the jacket a bit. Especially on a cold day like today.

If any of you are interested in seeing a video of me riding this sweet 1967 Triumph, check out Motocann on IG!
Have a great evening!

I‘ve been checking those out. Numbers wise the sleeves seem long. How are yours?

Yes, they are a tad long, and I have long monkey arms. But, if you button the sleeves they stay tight on the wrist. Mine is a medium- I probably could’ve went with a small.

It might feel small- but it looks good on you! Shoulders and sleeves look right

Thanks man! Really only feels small when I zip it up. It’s a t shirt only jacket for sure. That Triumph of yours is a beaut!! I have my eye on a Thruxton TFC.. I’ve entered the “negotiation” phase with the wife, haha. She’s not the biggest fan of bikes.

Hey, thanks. I have a Thruxton R 1200, it’s a beautiful motorcycle. Have you seen the new Thruxton chrome? Just released.
Yeah, getting around the wife is a challenge fer sure. I had motorcycles when I met my wife so she knew what she was getting into. But hey… life is short, everyone deserves a nice motorcycle to ride! ;-) Cheers!

^^ thumbs up on the Thruxton R. I need to take a closer look at the Chrome! I just love what triumph did with the TFC, such an artful scheme all around. I gave up the bikes when we got married, but she let me buy a Viper, so she’s not all bad, I suppose. Compromise ya know.. I moved the car along, so it’s gotta be time for another bike. Am I wrong?

For my taste, the jacket fits perfectly and does not look too small.
A board racer I would order exactly the same.
