I was inspired by @Eisenherz  and @Chesson ’s pics today to wear my IHJ 35. Mine is the Self Edge variant, with side pockets but no side zips. Pimped with a GAH snap cap

Chesson’s cool pic with the new snow UHF got me thinking of something similar to wear under it. The closest I could get was my IHSH 91. An IH groundbreaking shirt...the first work shirt with snaps! I love it.

Last pic is to show that I have finally learned how to control my tripod mounted SLR from my phone...pick where it should focus....no more composing, firing, running and standing still in 10 seconds. You’ll have to bear with the ‘small print but forgot my reading glasses’ attitude from now on.

That looks fantastic and the fit is smack. The Good Art pimp is just the right amount of subtlety. How does the Good Art button install? Can you explain how that works?

I love this jacket more everyday.

Cheers!

Thanks for your comments @Powerband   I like my jackets a bit looser than many on the forum. I’ll take some pics this week with the jacket zipped up so you can better judge fit for yourself.

The snap caps are very easy. They just snap onto the male snaps which come installed in the jacket’s collar. There are two male snaps so you can use one for the cap and the other one when you close up the collar strap.

There are several snap cap designs...

Do it, this is a superb jacket.

A great look @motojobobo . I also have the same combo of SE jacket and Good Art snap cap. It is my wife’s favorite of all my leather jackets so I wear it often, lol.

I had the SE version but sold it because it was just slightly too large for me, and I’ve moved on to other jackets like those from Fine Creek & Co., Aero and Johnson. But the quality and hand-feel of the IHJ-35 horsehide keeps haunting my dreams.

Last night, before laying down to bed for what would have been another fitful night of sleep, I ordered the last size small on the website.

I had the deepest, dreamless sleep I’ve ever had in a while.

Hopefully the jacket lands in a few days.

Haha! The GAH snap is one of the driving reasons I reordered this jacket!

RESTOCK

Good news. This is one of those rare jackets that has to be handled and thrown on the back to understand its significance. I had the SE version (but regretfully sold it), so I truly appreciate the quality of this IHJ-35. Can’t wait for the delivery of my second one.

Just arrived. And exactly as I remembered: easy to wear right out of the box. I sold a previous one, but this one is permanent.
