    looking for the OLD Vanson jacket guide?

    I have a near mint 1999 Vanson full line catalog w/15 page insert for custom orders and a rainbow of leather/horsehide and fabric options. I ran though the catalog and there is no size info chart on any available jacket from that era. Not sure what you are looking for but I couldn't find any...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    Yes, the natural Vicenza is nice but the contrast between that and the Raw horsehide is rather dramatic and I would wonder how the Raw HH would fair with casual wear and picking up every bit of grime. It appears the Raw doesn't have any type of treatment or topcoat to the hide. I'm sure the...

    Greetings Panda! Super special Aero Type-3 in Raw Horsehide you have there. I often wondered what one would look like and now I know. I really like my Natural Vicenza Type-3 and it has aged quite well over the year I've had it. Your jacket will become even more spectacular over time I'm...

    Another stand out from your extensive suede collection. It appears as those the chest pockets are smilng just a bit. Maybe you could find some red felt and cut out a couple of pieces shaped like a tongue and insert them in the pocket openings - just for fun of course!

    Super snazzy jacket there Panda! The natural leather color is sure to season into something even more special that it is now. With the multitude of jackets you have posted on this forum, I can only guess you are posing at the front door to your jacket vault where all your gems reside. You...

    Lucky you - I was 50 23 years ago! I'll never be younger than I am today but being young at heart helps keep me young. BTW, all your rough out Type-3's that have graced this forum are super cool.

    New forum member brand (Rugged West)

    The fit of the jacket after a few days wear is incredible - I doubt it could fit any better. After giving this jacket a look on the Rugged West site I thought about the Fox Creek Leather Trucker jacket I bought about 12 years and how similar it is to your RW. It's not exactly alike (snaps...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    Wow! Super nice Type-3 - I like it almost as much as my 2 Aero Type-3's. However the fit of yours is perfection and the western vibe of the back yoke almost matches the stitching on the back pockets of your jeans! As always a look that has substance. I checked the website for this jacket and...

    30 year old Steerhide Aero...SQUEAKY

    I many leather jackets that are rather boisterous and just let them be as loud as they want to be. After all, they want to be worn and are letting you know how much they appreciate being worn by creaking at you. I do have a few that are rather 'soft spoken' in regards to announcing their...

    Driving in leather jackets. Seat belt abrasions.

    I've never had an issue with either vehicle when driving while wearing a leather jacket. The restraint belt is (should be) height adjustable to ensure a proper fit. The only issue I've had with my Aero Type-3 jackets in particular is the buttons on the side adjustment tabs rubbing against the...

    leather type 3 options

    What a wonderful way to describe the Aero T3 in Navy - I couldn't have put it any better.

    leather type 3 options

    Another option would be Vicenza HH for an Aero T3 - I have two (Navy & Natural) - really nice hides that break in quickly. My navy one is a grain monster the natural one less so. I've attached some images for reference - I got the Navy one on 9/22 and the natural one on 5/23. No fit pics as...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    Nothing weird about wearing a leather jacket indoors. I do it quite often - especially now with the cooler Fall/Winter weather here in central VA. Why wear an itchy sweater when you can slip into a nice leather jacket that only becomes more comfortable the longer and more often you wear it...

    Wow! Super cool Budweiser jacket and the bowling alley backdrop is icing on the cake! Really neat image.

    Trucker-shorts! (shorter than Bermudas)

    Oh my. Apparently they were a local national treasure for their attire and public squabbling. I can't even imagine considering wearing anything like that much less wearing it in public. Still, I admire their onions for being who they were. The world certainly has some colorful inhabitants!
