Hi all.
Last Thursday I ordered an A-2 Doniger jacket from Shawn at fivestar and whilst I’m sat here eagerly waiting I was wondering what’s the longest anyone has had to wait from initial ordering from a supplier/maker to actually receiving said item.
I know Goodwear is 2 years and to be honest I can see why. Maybe I could flog one of my kidneys...
My longest wait before getting into this has been 4 months when I ordered a custom knife from a maker (SWC) that supplied knives to Ray Mears to counter the crazy waiting list times for his Alan Wood woodlore knives. I heard it was up to 12 years and the resale value of the knives was ridiculous! And yes before you ask I added myself onto the list for one of them as well lol

Last I heard GW are well over 2 years now. With that 5 Star Doniger judging on past performances you won't have long to wait ;-)
