How does the back cinch thing feel day to day?

I've only worn for a few hours. You have to be aware of the back belt catching on things. Other than that I don't notice it. The adjustment pokes another couple of holes through the belt. I will adjust as needed after some wearing time.

I have a Freewheelers denim early style with the same belt.

I first saw High Large posted here several years ago. I was in love! This is a different leather than my Fine Creek. I bit less stiff, which is fine with me. Size 44 fits fine.

I picked up a leather trucker jacket for work a few days back, I hope some of you could give me more info about it … I know very little other than it fits pretty well as a work jacket and seems bombproof, it’s a similarly style to a waxed Levi’s and a blanket lined Carhartt I own. It was sold as Horsehide but I really have no idea as there aren’t any tags other than what is shown.

Cal Friday anyone?!

Thick as Horse......hide

Heavy Cal pre-conditioning, no collar required today.

Not sure on the age of this one, @JMax what would you say?

Expert? No way. But I’ve had a few. Hard for me to opine w/o a better view of the hide. Also, Is it heavy or more medium weight? I’d say 70s, but maybe a bit earlier. Main zip and teardrop pulls sorta point to that timeframe too. Message me some more pics if you want. Beetlejuice out.

Teardrop talons =70’s-80’s.

Thanks Ton and JMax.

Guy I got it from said he bought it for his job from Star Leather in '81.

A completely different (reminds me of riding elephants) hide) to the Stealth, it sort of doesn't feel '80s. It might be getting a bit of an Obenauf's tomorrow. (not sure how it will take it (It looks thirsty) tester first).
