Hey Brett, I contacted BK a good month or two ago pretty much when i started this thread. I wanted to get an idea how much their Liberty had changed from when I originally purchased a Liberty hide jacket a good 5 years ago, as the idea was a comparison between the early hides and the new. Anyhoo they had issues with their server and didn't get my message till a month ago, so they sent it snail mail a good 4 weeks ago, so I just received it today. The weathered samples I received from M3Cavalry who didn't require them anymore so sent them to me once he found out how long BK was taking etc. Good in a way that both samples can be displayed together to see the difference in hides received from the tanneries. Also been thinking of going a Dubow, but I'd also like an original, but as I said in another post waiting on the dollar/pound ratio to improve which at present doesn't look likely, so which ever comes or bites me first I guess. Time will tell. If you want samples mate I can send them along , just let me know.
