    My first trucker!

    In leather that is. I did wear denim truckers as teenager after, but more importantly to the jacket: It all started with the idea of using sharkskin for a jacket. I went online to find some examples of what is feasible and… found nothing! My next course of action was to contact Alan at Johnson...

    Johnson Leather Custom Aviator Style in Bison

    “This is serious” was he first thought that came to mind when the cardboard flaps opened to reveal what was sitting in there… a beauty. A beauty I had seen in pictures, but there she was in the flesh, in all her glory… Yes, we are talking about a leather jacket :p Heavy bison crowned by a...

    Lost Worlds Cow hair panel grizzly

    I had been considering getting a cow-hair panel grizzly from Lost Worlds for quite a while... Reason I did not have one until now, is that I always have too many models I want to get made. Initially I had in mind of getting a black-on-black version. Clean, understated, with a nice contrast in...

    Lost Worlds Peacoat in red deerskin

    Yes, red again! This time in deerskin with Lost Worlds :D I had the chance to take some pics while the sun peeked a bit from out of the clouds I have still to improve with getting the colour closer but this is not too far off It might not seem in these pics, but this deerskin is...

    What was the road to your fit nirvana? :)

    I was tempted to call this thread "the road to the perfect fit", but I think it is more about the fit you are happy with. I got this idea from @Marc mndt mentioning the fun aspect of nailing your fit in another thread. It could be fun to hear from members how they started with understanding fit...

    Johnson Leathers black cowhide MC-500

    This is a long overdue review, I got this jacket a few months ago, and it is meant for the motorcycle exclusively - the "to go" jacket when I am taking the motorbike. I wanted to use it before reviewing it, which I did, but then I couldn't find the opportunity to take some pictures until...

    Thedi in Red!

    I have been alluding to this jacket for a while, it is indeed in production and I have pictures to show! Normally I tend to just wait to get the jacket in hand, but I am really impatient with this one so I thought I might as well post some pictures. First let's take a look at the shade of red...

    How do you button your jackets?

    I was thinking about that the other day, I tend to leave the top and bottom undone with buttoned jacket, same as I would do with the jacket in a suit. Made me wonder what is the convention if there is any for the buttoned jackets, cat coats and peacoats?

    Lost Worlds Leathertogs B in black HH

    It is finally time to look at this one :) That jacket has been long in coming for me. I remember years ago, a friend showed it to me and I thought "it looks odd" as in I would never buy such a thing. Then having spent time here, I got used to the jacket, saw the freewheelers version, the...

    red devil fit checks & evolution

    I was told that I am not posting enough pics quite some time ago, so this thread is to address this, sorry it took so long! :) It is not exactly a "what are you wearing today" thread, as I generally wear a jacket and go out, otherwise I would simply post in the relevant thread. This thread is...

    Dave Sheeley 30s Monarch Aviator

    This jacket is based on a vintage design @tmitchell59 posted a while ago, it looked striking. So I got in touch asking if he was ok with the idea of reproducing it. Thankfully he directed me to Dave Sheeley who did a tremendous job as you will see in the pics shortly - or just jump directly and...

    Lost Worlds Speed Demon

    This is a jacket I have been guilty of overlooking. I suspect that it is a natural reaction to gravitate towards jackets like the J24 or the Leathertogs when browsing the Lost Worlds site. Problem is that this classic style has been so overdone that we tend to gloss over it, Any person on the...

    Langlitz Leathers Death's Head Cascade

    This is a jacket that I liked from the first time I had seen, after hearing about the issues surrounding getting a good fit, and the fact that you were supposed to have a very athletic build to pull it off, I thought it was one of those that would not work for me. Then I tried a stock size 46...

    Leather and other fabrics combinations

    There has been quite a trend in combining leather with other fabrics such as denim, canvas and wool. While it is certainly nothing new, there seems to be a renewed interest in combining leather in sometimes new ways as well. It would be interesting to see what are your current thoughts on this...

    Navy Deerskin LW J24

    So this is it, another take on such a classic jacket. It is really interesting how the difference in leather changes the whole jacket. I know well yet it feels completely new. The deerskin had a very nice weight to it, and drapes beautifully. At the same time it is not too soft as to be...

    Electric Leather Studio

    Considering I am seeing interest in this maker, I thought we might as well make a dedicated thread. I have been interested in their jackets for a while because they have a unique flair and are hitting a different style, mainly the 70s. Another aspect to note is the creativity that oozes from...

    Fedora special! Horween X Vanson

    I hope the title is fitting here :D I just saw in the other thread that Vanson would be happy to work with leather supplied (not that surprising actually). Since there seems to be quite an interest in this, we might as well create a thread to discuss this specifically. So far what we know is...

    If you could get only one armoured jacket for riding , which style would you choose?

    So I am thinking of getting a vintage style jacket made with full armour and was told that pretty much anything can be made :) I will go with a single versatile colour so that I can wear it no matter what bike I ride. So what would you go with? a CR? Cross-zip? Something else like say a...

    What is the longest order time you have gone through before receiving your order?

    Thought it would be fun to look into this. I would believe it only comes with small makers of artisan items but would be curious to hear from you guys. Only thing is that you must have received an item in the end (give us details as to why it changed in case it did) So for me, it actually...

    Lost Worlds Leathertogs in Navy HH

    I had been eyeing this jacket for a long time, it was the one that I thought could stand toe to toe with the J24, and it has not disappointed! The original that this one is reproduced from was a full custom order, I wonder how much input came from the buyer and how much from the maker. Probably...
