My Wested Hero in shrunken lamb size 44" has arrived (yesterday in fact) and I have literally taken it straight out of the packaging, given the jacket a hot water soaking and worn until dry.

The fit is great, so thankfully my requested measurements were good so thanks for all that helped in getting these right (especially Tibor), anyway here are just a couple of quick photos of the jacket. :TOH:





I'm impressed with the shrunken lamb, very SA I think and the hide is wonderful and lightweight plus showing a lot of promise on the breaking in side of things to.

Dark Brown Novapelle

Ive purposely not given my custom LC a coat of Pecards, want to retain the dusty look the novapelle is developing...

So that look has developed from wear? I like it.

Yeah, it was quite an even shade of fairly dark brown when I got it. Gave it the usual water treatment but no pecards. I've worn it lots since then, been rolled up in my locker at work many times, and it pretty quickly developed a dusty grey colour and an almost velvety texture. Probably a bit too light to be SA, but looks nicely lived in. Feels really robust too, quite heavy but very comfortable.

Still loving my Hero jackets at the moment. I've come to the conclusion that the jacket looks best when halfway zipped. Looks badass.

I agree, I've been wearing my new Hero jacket constantly since receiving it about a week ago.

Love the fit and drape, the shrunken lamb is really breaking in now and developing some lovely creasing.

Probably my favourite / go to jacket at the moment.

I have a pair of old Todds indy boots from back in 2007/8 I have no idea where they are now (in the loft somewhere), Wested's new offering look pretty good and for around £100 seem within budget.

Not sure anybody has bought a pair yet as I would love to see a review on these.

Recently moved back to the States after 10-years in Germany. Rented a house there that I used the top floor 2-bedrooms as walk-in closets. Coming back to the Washington, DC area had me renting a much smaller house due to cost. Ended up with 2-childrens sized closets for my stuff. Had not realized how many items of clothing I had accumulated in Germany until I had to unpack here.......

I had over 30-something leather jackets with most being Indy ones from different makers. Around 40 Fedora in their boxes and at least 40 pairs of ankle boots with many Alden ones.

I made a few trips to the charity clothing drop. Several jackets, a few fedora and quite a few boots (kept the Alden of course). Friend at work wears the same sized hats and boots and he got many. Gave him most of my collection of Affliction t-shirts as well as I now have one drawer for t-shirts. I still have boots under the bed, in the closets.

Still weeding everything down. Also collect functional swords and over 20-years of collecting have around 200 of them. Using a child's bedroom to put them out on the stands. Still working on the room. Have a finished basement but the wife will not allow me to use it for my stuff as she made a guest bedroom there.........

I was fortunate in Germany as the gov paid my rent and utilities and I am also retired from the Army. Here in the States, I have to pay 100%. When you live in a really big house, you don't actually realize how much stuff you have until you are forced to downsize. My reduction in stuff is still ongoing. Need to sell off over 1/2 of the swords.
