    Why a Leather Jacket?

    It’s interesting to me that I only have 1 jacket that I purchased new. All my others have been sourced second-hand.

    Why a Leather Jacket?

    Yes. :) It’s a fun treasure hunt mixed with a history lesson too. A similar appeal as Uncharted, National Treasure, or a Dan Brown book.

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    Thedi is one of my favorite makers. He has shown that he really cares about his craft and his customers.

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    I think over the last few years we have become more obsessive. Social media has helped fuel it along with brands (and their ambassadors) pushing and justifying their high-priced “artisanal” goods. Nothing new, we all want a good story to tell, but it has gotten out of hand. Hopefully, things...

    How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    I’ve had a bit of a crazy morning. 5 minutes after having an offer accepted for a sz38 Brooks I found my CR grail of grails...a real unicorn...a tagged size 38 Kehoe. Now both are on their way to me. I will be reviewing them side by side once they arrive. I will only be keeping one, so if you...

    Bates style action back Vs. Aero style shoulder gussets

    I’ve been having trouble fixing elastic gussets. Even when I put them in the right place something’s off and they either pucker or puff out. I think I need professional help.

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    IMHO you should go to Johnson Leathers and order the @Mrfrown Jacket. It is much cooler with the longer collar strap... and... custom fit! https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/what-jacket-are-you-wearing-today.82949/post-2883308

    Field Leathers

    The above jacket proves that Greg can make a nicely shaped collar, so why are there so few? His jackets would be so much more interesting if he added shape (and size) to his collars IMO.

    Leather jacket painted portrait removal

    I love unique artwork on jackets! It’s a total throwback to the late 80s here in LA, but yeah I wouldn’t wear it today (but I also wouldn’t want to remove it either).

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    I don’t know why these Kehoe jackets are so cheap! The brown ones may not be the same amazing leather as the black ones, but they are equal to Brooks in hide quality. The design and build surpass Brooks IMHO. Truly a steal if you can get them under $100 (and you can). The common problem is that...

    Dye Stain on Lining of Aero Highwayman

    This is by far the best stain remover on the market! Even gets out blood (if garment hasn’t been in the dryer). As stated, the best remedy is none if you can live with it as patina.
