The Fedora Lounge
Just received this Bronson A-1 jacket. Bronson is one of the Chinese brands that does repros workwear and military clothings often copies of the Japanese brands. This A-1 according to the manufacturer is made of Goatskin. It is seal colour with olive knits. I paid around USD200 including shipping. The leather smells like new car leather upholstery and those unknown mall jackets. Leather is thicker and more rigid than the Eastman A-1 Capeskin. In fact, the leather feels soft to the touch but feels rigid when you wear it (not yet broken in I guess). Also available is a steerhide version which according to their photos look like deep reddish brown with rust knits.
The stitching is acceptable except for the one place shown in the last photo. Knits are quite thick though I do not know if they are pure wool or not. IMO, it looks quite good until you get close enough to examine the leather etc.
Hi to all,
I'm looking for an hat,open crown (I think could be better) for reshape it into a Boogie shape, I love very much that kind of shape (I think for me could be better with more wider brims).
What about Akubra Fedora, to do it?
Anyone have any idea about?
Anyone has a Bogie hat,any pics?
