    It certainly looks thinner than the leather on the black Vanson one I used to have.

    Aero Board racer zipper splits open

    Ask Aero for a replacement puller and instructions of how to change them over. Cheap and effective! - (they’ll probably send it for free)

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    If you search TFL for Lesco leathers halfbelt you should pull up a jacket like the one above. Schott NYC made the same style at the same time (50’s-60’s) and Schott Europe remade it in black and also tan in the 90’s.

    It’s either a Schott or more likely a Lesco multi pocket. Mind you the label doesn’t appear to say either brand name. Perhaps it was made by one or the other for another retailer?

    Anyone take a guess?

    Please help identify this ‘MA1’

    I realise it’s a long shot with the missing pocket label but it was cheap and it struck me as having age and high quality. The zipper is heavy duty and has pullers inside and outside with a leather fob attached to the inside pull. The leather attached to the outer puller dropped off in the wash...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    I’ve seen a few Bronx and owned one for a while but this is the first Vanson ‘twin track’ I’ve seen. A search for Vanson twin track and Vanson double track brings up a few examples of the Double Riders model with twin track zippers.

    Yes it’s a ‘twin track’ similar to a Lewis Leathers twin track Bronx designed for layering or not.

    Footwear to go with our jackets

    For years I’ve bought shoes and boots for under £100 except for the odd pair of Gortex Ecco boots which are just a bit more. Yesterday I was in Flannels and was smitten by a pair of Grenson Brady Boots and now my credit card has suffered for the first time in years.

    Albert Richard at a great price. If it wasn’t for the import duty I’d be snaffling this not posting it here. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304332324415

    leather jacket treatment question

    No don’t believe it! The cheapest conditioner you can safely use and then only if the jacket needs it which is seldom is a light application of Vaseline. There are numerous threads about when to condition how to condition and which is the best product - look them up but never ever use WD40. If...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    I believe eBay U.K. calculate their final value fees on sold price plus shipping costs so I assume it’s the same wherever. I think they used to base it solely on sold price until a number of sellers sold stuff for peanuts and cranked up their shipping charges to avoid fees. If the selller set...

    Game changer fix for Aero // \\ pattern issue

    It looks to me simply like the difference between an ‘off the peg’ jacket eg size XL etc. and a ‘bespoke’ jacket. In short an off the peg is never going to be a perfect fit whereas a bespoke jacket made specifically for you taking into account a wide range of your measurements, will be a perfect...

    End of life report - Ecco GoreTex boots

    I bought a pair of these when they first came on the market in the 80’s or maybe ‘90’s? They had to be replaced within a few months of light daily wear. The part of the sole that wraps the toe came away. After three free sets of replacements and a loud argument in the shop to obtain the last...

    What do you use to shave?

    My latest razor is a vintage Wilkinson Sword Kompakt. It uses the ‘Atra’ type two blade refill which are supplied by carefully breaking off the cartridges from a each of a lifetimes supply of two blade plastic disposables bought for £20 from Aldi a few years ago. I got into this two blade...
