It’s important to some of us that newly touted products and the ethical principles associated with the marketing of them are properly vetted. In balance, providing that the feedback is sincere and constructive, it should be valued.Man!!!
Why do we keep beating up on the guys who are trying to produce decent repro jackets. I don’t get it . Please someone explain it to me. I’m not looking to get involved in a pissing contest but this seems to be happening more and more.
Here, a satisfied customer or two of Headwind stated the new hide wasn’t to their aesthetic liking. That’s all. People like what they like. No biggie right?
Instead, there are multiple pics, some quite fuzzy, and others missing evidentiary data linked to the individual’s comments telling us our screen monitors aren’t up to the task or we just need to believe that this hide is representative of the garment from approximately a hundred years ago. Maybe or maybe not, right?
My feeling was there was an impingement on open and robust forum conversation, that this manufacturer apparently claimed to have the truth and we were not being appreciative enough as he may have attempted to spoon-feed possible alternative facts for our general consumption to generate a new consensus more to his liking.
We should be protective of individuals attempting to cater to our avocation, and in exchange they could steel themselves with the knowledge that not everyone here will love every product all the time. And when this happens on occasion it is not necessay to internalize they are unloved or unwelcome here.
