    Yes, I see. But which details? The pockets, the collar? the lenght? Now that I am browsing through my pictures on the harddrive I can't find jackets with all the features at once (of course) But my knowledge in leather jackets is limeted anyway. That's why I have to ask.

    The ladies know to walk very fast through the icy streets ...in heels. Very graceful. And I was struggling to hold my balance in normal shoes.

    Is it just more, or is this a bit Tom of Finland?

    This is the kind of thing I mean:



    The classic modern jean jacket design, but in leather instead of denim. Course, now I think about it, I should also have realised they were around in the Sixties too... Elvis wore one on the 68 Special....

    Ello, Joe, been anywhere lately?



    It's the shiny leather britches.... Too much overall leather for me, but I'd wear those britches with a military dress jacket... Takes me right back to my pre-vintage clubbing days.... ha...
    If in doubt - overdress.

    I mentioned earlier that Friitala used only sheepskin on their jackets. However I found a bit of information that the Finnish Defence Forces used also horsehide jackets during the early 1930s. It is likely that these were made specially for the Army by Friitala.
