Vanson Enfield from the Classifieds. The zipper tape at the bottom has a lot of stress on it when you sit down, from the splay of the jacket. Damage from past use is evident. I used some Fray Check to try and manage it, but I'm wondering how long until I'll need a zipper replacement. View attachment 484814 View attachment 484815
Another day of…old man and the pea…
I can’t even remember the last time I wore (or even wanted to wear) leather. Oh wait never mind it’s was a self-destructing jacket a week ago. View attachment 483798

A wool jacket is the ultimate in warmth!

After taking off my sports jacket, I decided to try this on to see how the cross-zip with tie combination looked here.

I sometimes feel this jacket is a touch too long, but getting it shortened half an inch at the front and an inch at the back feels like a bit too much of a gamble.
Can't get a better cross zip to do that with, but maybe I am biased...

Thanks Tom! For the record I loved the PHWM and 50s halfbelt style but they were very uncomfortable for me to wear any extended time. They were both in CXL horse, the halfbelt was particularly thick. I’ve been thinking about returning to the 50s halfbelt in a lighter hide or even the wool/leather halfbeltSuits you to a “T”. Still speechless that you let go of the black Aero(s), but as an “only jacket” this one would perfectly do the job (and the “Duke”, of course…).
Hah thanks Dan. Surely they notice I dress differently…have to wonder if they’ll ever think I’m hip or cool lolThe 618 looks great on you. Hope your kids realize what a hip dad they have!
Apologies for posting this one again, but I'm still enjoying the honeymoon...
