    Thanks Lear a great idea for my next tread - My wife (thanks god) has a lot of understanding for me and therefore for my hobby - So it doesnt take any efforts - once more thanks god - to convince her ;)
    Well - I/we own several pants, shoes, shirts . . . why not several jackets for different seasons, occasions, or just for matching our wardrobe??

    Thanks

    Thats a great looking jacket. Really cool to have so many of the same style!
    Beautiful color.

    I got the cheyenne for winter and the Highwayman for summer.
    The Highwayman is kinda thick for summer tho so I have on order a thinner jacket for summer.
    I thought I could maybe get away with another thin one in another color, and then I could need a real winter jacket with sherling lining.
    After that I thought about a military style becasue it will be so different so I think its not gonna be a problem.
    But then Im feeling I might be in trouble getting more jackets after that.
    I felt like I needed to be like "yes its a new jacket but im selling one of the old ones"

    Some days ago I was talking with my girlfriend and she have many brown/black handbags of different styles and got a new black one. Then she just bought a brown one that was kinda expensive (almost like a jacket) and I asked her if she is done with the bags soon. She explained to me without any problem that beacuse of the grey shoes she got yesterday, she will offcourse need a grey handbag, and went on with about 3-4 more that is relly life esential.

    I said: -Um.dont you think its enough soon.
    She said: -I can buy as many bags as i want.
    I said: -Oh reeeeealyy. But besides the money difference, how may jackets could I buy?
    She: -You can buy as many jackets as you want
    Me: :cool: :cool:

    She explained to me that if I have the money to buy something else that is for me, then I can buy whatever I want, including jackets.

    Yay for women shoes and handbags :D

    That has been a remarkable amount of movement that has taken place during one month in order to break your jacket in so nicely.

    It looks fantastic!

    New (to me) Vintage Jacket - Windward by Montgomery Ward

    This is a well-weathered and broken in steerhide that I picked up recently. I have been looking for something like this for many years. Although I wanted horsehide this is pretty close.

    For the first time I have found a vintage jacket that is a bit too big for me but with a layer it fits well. The style and pockets are perfect and the brown colour is what I wanted, although with the flash it looks a bit more like burgundy.

    I will have to get a better camera soon but I hope that these images give you a good idea of the 'personality' of this jacket.
