    Great Jacket, Kelso uses the best hides with the best grain, makes most of the other makers look like Pleather
    I'm jealous

    Pilot, is that olive drab thread and mid brown knit?
    Never to hot for a fit pic!

    See the color shades if compared with the dull orange liner...
    The knits are mid brown..colors in photos are incorrect.
    Last photo is more realistic

    Hows the fit Pilot, did you go standard 46? Is that your normal size?
    Reason I ask, is cause Andy's recommending something and I'm not 100% sure, as I'd have thought something else.

    Wow! Ok so I am getting one of these. Was up between this and a goodwear but I can’t get an email response back from John and besides it’s more in price so going with this. I am hoping for a used one to show up but if not I will be ordering one soon.

    Hmmm while I think BK does great work and I hope to own a new one someday, I would not go that far. Take a look at my ELC monarch

    Better order quick J, not as long a wait as a GW, but.... you are going to wait. I'm still waiting, but in no massive rush.
    I like the colour/ hue of the Seal liberty... No one else does a colour, quite like this, I wonder why. So many originals I've seen have this mid brown/ seal colour...

    Just standard 46”, fits me perfectly, its the very same fit as my GW Dubow in 46”, my ELC RW in 46” and my Ex Aero in 44”.
    Will post fit pics ASAP.

    I was thinking of going with the rust knits with the seal. And same make. RW.
    Think that would look ok?

    lol
    My only hesitation with buying another jacket is that I have been wearing the heck outta this ELC and it’s really comfortable and fun to wear and picking up tons of character. Afraid of getting another nice one and splitting the wear of them.

    Yep, really need a fit pic. The hide looks amazing compared to my old BK. Congrats on the new Rough Wear.

    Thats the authentic configuration for a Dubow 1755... If you don't mind authenticity, then sure, rust-knit the RW ;)

    You mean, if you don't mind un-authentic, then sure, rust knit the RW. ;-)

    Ah. The mid brown looks good though and if it’s more authentic then I will stick with that.
