I've picked up some 90% at CVS. We're getting severe storm warnings tonight, so I'll probably hang her over the back of one of the deck chairs and let a little soft rain water do it's thing. Even with water softening, we have a lot of iron and calcium in the tap water. It left white residue on my Magnoli XO.
It's 101d f here in central Indiana. Monday on we're looking at highs in the low 70's and lows in the mid 50's. Yehaw!!!
A.) My AC compressors can take a break!
B.) I can start WEARING these jackets again!
I'm looking at these belt buckles. That pre-adamantium version you showed us? Where would one obtain one? Also, what's the authoritative source for the chief version?

Saw someone in a Wolverine get-up this morning at the Dragoncon parade, including the jacket. I think it was an X-1. Looked nice. I was nowhere near close enough to take a picture, but I couldn't help but wonder if it was someone here.
Thanks for the shot of the backside of the buckle. Looks like it was haphazardly soldered on, which may give at any time, or at least that's how it appears. I wonder if they were all soldered that way?

wearing the jacket, showing the belt
Im bummed the revelations regarding Herons new jacket weren't addressed before mine was made.
RD, I can see why you're impatient. The design has come along way in 14 months. I'd love to actually see Dan's version as well, to compare the two in person.
Is there any way you can post an image with the arms completely down at the side?
Jorge...Also could you do a back profile with the shirt tucked in and also what Drool stated? This is one of those jackets you have to wear with the shirt tucked in unless it's shorter than the length of the jacket. Can't stand seeing shirts longer than jackets
dbaehw Whoops, repost.

Glad I'm not the only one - drives me frigging NUTS when a guy drops a wad on a nice jacket and can't tuck his shirt in. Secret for ya guys? Women will notice your shirt out and think you're a slob and never even notice a bitchin jacket. Important safety tip.

Ah, that's right. What seems to be your biggest concern, the shoulder adjustment? Is your current jacket not fitted right after you relaxed the shoulders?
Bowel - That's due to the incorrect sleeve shape and arm-hole configuration. Your jacket looked even more pointy shouldered than Drool's in the beginning. And frankly there is no amount of "relaxing" that will fix the issue. Since it seems to be sized slightly wrong for your body shape in those areas, maybe Heron will take it for an exchange or to retrofit the proper sleeve shape and drop the armhole a bit for you...
The jacket is the best ! I really have to get one, it's a really cool looking jacket
What is irritating is i gave Miguel my bicep/tricep and fore arm measurements to avoid this problem.. But i feel they were overlooked. Its comfortable to wear until i have to move my arms, Then it becomes very uncomfortable.
I have aleady really worn the hell out of it. A return is not possible. Maybe they will mod it with all the new additions and make a proper fit actoss my back and in my arms. i was under the impression the jacket would settle to be comfortable. It has so far but not even close to enough. I cant even talk on a cell phone when i have the jacket on, that's how tight the arms are.
Have you spoken with Jorge about these fittting issues when the jacket arrived and you first put it on? It seemed you were happy with the jacket at first.
