    @Broark What suit do you plan to wear with the shoes?

    I'd definitely look at the English shoes for your wedding. Not Viberg. They do nice boots, but the English do really great shoes. Trickers are very chunky, country shoes. C&J are great. Also check out Carmina (from Spain). Very well made and you could get a fantastic shell cordovan in tan from them, you choose the last and shape you want.

    Tender Co. Denim

    I have exactly the same problem on all of my Tender jeans. It's the only gripe I have with them. I've tried the plier trick, arranging it vertically, etc but the buttons always eventually pop out. I almost lost one into the toilet, too. Lucky miss. I wonder why William didn't sew them on? The wire seems a very precarious solution.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    I recently purchased two jackets. First one is the Flat Head Single Rider in black. This replaced the smaller brown pre-owned version I had (I gifted that to a friend who fits it perfectly). This is the best leather I've ever seen. Just incredible feel and texture. The slightly larger size (new size 40) means I can actually raise or cross my arms now. The previous size 40 restricted me to t-shirt only and even that was a bit tight. This one I can wear a shirt and light sweater underneath and it's not too bad (a little tight). The second jacket was a total gamble. I had long looked at the OG-2 from Original Garment Bros, finally decided to use a proxy to order one when the pre-orders came up last September. Arrived in March. I really love it. A lot lighter than the TFH and the leather feels 'drier' but it's a really lovely horsehide and very well made. What I liked about it is the super minimal design.

    @Double 0 Soul I'll echo @mpukas here. Looking at the fit on you, you should keep it. And wear it. It's beautiful and it fits you perfectly.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    Hmmmm... I'm on a bit of a leather jacket binge of late. Could you post photos and measurements? I wear a 40 in TFH single rider and Original Garment Bros OG-2. Both of which I've had for a few weeks. But I'm in Canada so can't drop by and try it on!

    The Flat Head

    I have a new black version of the TFH single rider's jacket arriving Wednesday. I got it to replace the brown version I bought used. The tag size on my brown one is 40, but it's definitely the chest size, not a normal size 40. My chest is ~40 (39.5" to be exact), and the jacket fits me with no room for more than a t-shirt. P2P is like 19.5". Shoulders are just under 18". It would fit a normal but trim size 38 This is an older version, I think. The new ones have different measurements. So the size 40 on the current new version measures around 44 in the chest and 19" across the shoulders. Here's the fit of the one I have in brown:

    The Flat Head

    What's the best way to buy from the Flat Head? I want to get a couple of things from their site, including the single rider leather jacket in black. But I'm not sure if they ship overseas. Anyone here ordered directly from flat-head.com?
