    Thanks. 30+ year old brown CXLFQHH is amazing. So characterful. I'm really pleased with the Ogilvie of Airlie light weight tartan remnant that was in a pile at the back of the factory. I love my occasional trips to Galashiels and Melrose on the Tweed.

    Leither,thank you very much! I just wanted to understand what size sits on you like that, so that I can start from something.

    Highwayman I think 38 is my size.

    Good luck. They do say size down with a Highwayman as it's a boxy design. I wear a size 42 in the Aero sheene/Cafe racer. My Sheene is 23 p2p, 25.5 both arms and back, 19.5 shoulders.

    Wearing my Ridley as much as possible. Yesterday my girlfriend asked me whether I am in love with this jacket...we were sitting in a cafe and I was admiring the cordovan changing colors in the sunlight - I felt like a weirdo

    Watching cordovan changing colours in sunlight is one of the simple pleasures of life. Repeat

    On a whim in October of last year I decided to buy a natural HH highwayman jacket through the epaulet project...I waited patiently all winter and now that the temps are in the 60’s and leather jacket season is about a week from ending, here it is fresh from the box.....well after the epaulet guy tried it on..

    It’s a pretty standard highwayman no bells, whistles.. or tartan lining.
    Actually my only gripe is that I ordered an olive cotton drill lining... man if it don’t look brown..

    Other than the wait the jacket fits pretty well how I like & spec’d it..
    now me and @Sloan1874 can race to see who gets theirs patina’d up First.

    Lunch with friends in my trusty G-1 at NYC’s Fraunces Tavern, the oldest structure in the City (built 1719); a place where General George Washington had dinner with his fellow Continental Army Officers!

    That’s crazy talk!

    A natural leather jacket should ONLY be result of serious, ponderous consideration over months if not years

    Looks great though, please keep us updated with its evolution.

    My wife has asked me the same question. Try responding that she goes before the jacket does. You may have better results than I did.

    It’s winter in Chicago for the next few days so I’m happy to have this Mister Freedom p-jacket. This thing will see tons of wear time next year.
