    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    Vanson Comet is what popped into my head as I read this passage. In terms of cut and pattern this has to be one of the nicest café racers ever made. It is rather short as well, on the plus side for you. I have seen a lot of them for sale on eBay and here over the years for not much money. I...

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    I have four Good Wear jackets that John has made for me. I did wait almost three years for the first one but the last two jackets were all right around a 12 month lead time from deposit to receipt of the jacket. I have found John to be slow responding to emails and calls but I just keep trying...

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    I’m pretty sure they are not going to go for that. The purpose of the fit jacket process is to insure the right fit for your order. If the jacket they send doesn’t fit properly then they know what to tweak for your custom order. I don’t think they will send a jacket out though until you have...

    Bates style action back Vs. Aero style shoulder gussets

    If you are buying vintage you very well may get a jacket where the elastic on the action back has worn out. i had this problem on a G-1 I purchased and it was an easy repair for my tailor, as @Aloysius said.

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    You took some heat for this observation but I think I understand your point here. The Flat Head jacket you posted has a really nice detail at the waistband with the French seam and contrast stitching. The Langlitz Cascade on the other hand has a rather plain folded seam at the bottom and the odd...

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    I hate to hear that because I have a jacket on order from them through Butterscotch LB. I will just cross my fingers and hope it all goes well.

    What do you think of this New Flat Head Leather Jacket

    Yep. A Chopper without the padding would come pretty close to the mark. I worry that the stitching might not be impeccable enough for the OP though. The contrast stitching on my custom chopper (shameless copy of the one owned by you @JMax ) is very good but there are flaws to be found if you go...

    Bomber in San Fran

    Head over to Haight street and get yourself a Derby jacket. https://www.derbysf.com/ I grew up in San Francisco in the 1980s and every kid in the city wore one. The brand went under in the late 90s but someone brought them back to life again a few years ago. Cool jackets.

    Dye Stain on Lining of Aero Highwayman

    This is so true. I got a small bleach spot on one of my favorite pairs of jeans. It was not too noticeable but it bothered me so I bought some RIT dye that I thought was a good match for the color of the jeans. Turns out it wasn’t a good match and what had been a small bleach spot is now a much...

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

    Welcome to the tan IH N1 club! Definitely one of my favorites and it goes well with almost everything.

    In theory the sleeves are built to conform to your body measurements. Langlitz asks for measurements around the bicep, forearm, and wrist as part of the order process. I would say they did a good job on both of my jackets, sleeves are comfortable and not overly large. As for the photos on their...

    "New" Thedi Fit Pics - Opinions Wanted

    Hey man, if your lady likes them then that is a hell of a lot more important then what a couple of dudes on the internet think. The jacket is a keeper for sure!

    Good Wear Hercules Half-Belt

    When I was working out leather choices on my GW Mojave back in January I’m pretty sure he did have Shinki available in russet and dark seal.

    Things you want but cannot justify buying...

    This is the one for me The Mister Freedom Baloo Grizzly. I love everything about this jacket, and to my eyes they got everything absolutely perfect. Price actually seems reasonable to me for what it is, but I’ve already got way too many nice jackets that I never wear and this just seems to me...

    To alter or not to alter

    That jacket fits you so well! I know we’ve all had jackets where we are trying to convince ourselves that something that is a little off works, when really we know in our heart of hearts it doesn’t. That is not this jacket, not even close!

    Congratulations on a beautiful jacket there! Is that made from their midweight cowhide?

    Purchasing a Jacket That Smells

    I expect a bit of odor from an old jacket but I remember one of the first vintage G-1s that I bought smelled as if it had been used as an ashtray for the last 20 years. This had not been mentioned at all by the seller and I promptly returned the jacket.
