    That’s good to know. Sounds like we might be seeing Mr. Proper in a shiny new Vanson one of these days!

    Did you provide Vanson with the cxl leather?

    Lol Who knows? I've had a look around the Vanson site. Many Café Racer and Crosszip. I'm well equipped with those. But maybe really the Oxford.
    But maybe I'm so happy with the new Lewis Leather that I no longer buy another leather jacket ;)

    No, i ordered through Left field, the commando pattern belongs to them and they had some CXL left from the "gold standard" commando run they did.
    All i did was convince them to allow me to order a custom Commando variation with some of their remaining leather.

    I had one of those. Very nice, I had to move it on for fit reasons. I don't know what leather it was, but it was good stuff.

    I think Logan’s closet sourced that hide. I remember the sleeves were laughably long so I never pursued one. That was an attempt at screen accuracy that yielded comic result. Mine won’t be a screen repro. It’ll be a wearable jacket.
