    Did anyone receive in the mail a brochure and order form for a masonic bomber jacket? It looks pretty nice and is a decent price if it's quality leather. It comes with a free masonic zipper pull and states that "this offering is made with the permission of the Grand Lodge of Texas". Do you think this is legitimate?

    Amazon also has some nice ebroidered patches for the other appendant bodies you can put on it.

    Here you go. Sorry I folded the brochure. Oh and it's $199 plus $14.95 shipping. 3 weeks for delivery.

    Looks nice.

    Yes, it is legit. Selling advertisment in the Texas Mason magazine is how the Grand Lodge can afford to produce and distribute it.

    I went ahead and ordered one. It's a good price considering similar ones are closer to $400. I was thinking about ordering these patches to go on it:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008C9XN2S/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008CALML6/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008C9P1O6/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


    You can also split up the price into two monthly payments if you want and there is a version of the jacket that comes with a concealed handgun pocket inside for an extra cost.

    I ordered one probably two weeks ago with the hand gun extra. I figured I would take it to the embroidery shop and have shrine added.

    They are advertising the same jacket in the latest issue of the SJR Scottish Rite Magazine. Though you might be able to find the same jacket in a surplus Military store for less. You can always order the patches to put on the velcro yourself.

    Just a thought Brothers?

    A word of caution on sizing. My wife sells leather jackets, vests, etc. of all brands. This does look like a good deal but be advised that leather "bomber" jackets normally run 1 to 2 sizes smaller. All of my textile jackets are 2XL but all of my leather jackets ad vests, no matter the brand, are 4X. A 3X will fit in some brands but is very tight.

    As much as I would like to have one of these, I will not order one without being able to one on first

    I was wondering the same thing. It's been at least 3 weeks for me too and nothing. I hope it wasn't a scam. I need to call them.

    With them it takes a long time to get stuff. Because I ordered my Masonic ring through them and it seemed to take forever but all in all it was worth it.

    I just called them and asked why it's taking so long. She said it will ship next week. So that would make it 6 weeks for me to get it. Double what they said when ordering. They must be running their business out of a garage or something.

    I ordered this jacket a couple of weeks ago and they informed me that ordering the jacket with the Conceal carry option will take a lot more time. I got the impression that the delay could be weeks due to the volume of orders. I did not order the option so I am hoping it comes pretty quick.

    This is a clearing-house company with several mail addresses. They have two "inside cover" ads in every KT magazine. They probably do experience an insane amount of order traffic.

    Mine showed up yesterday finally. Even though she said it wasn't shipping til next week. It's a nice jacket. My only gripe is that the mason logo is barely stamped into the leather and it's hard to see. I may end up putting a patch over it. I have patches for my appendant organizations.
