I have the aero hooch hauler and indeed the sleeves on it are kind of wide. The premier half belt I have has slimmer sleeves. (Also narrower shoulder). Maybe consider a premier bootlegger with a custom chest pocket to achieve a similar look as the hooch hauler.
So for a vintage jacket if one wants to cover discoloration on the wrist etc should I just use a bit of similar colored urad alone?
Not sure where I could get urad though. Does Fiebings have anything similar to urad?
I have VSC too but I can only get the natural color. Not sure if they do different colors. The saphir crème has a little dye/pigment in it so I figured I might be a little better for hiding marks. Before the crème I use VSC/ renovator for conditioning if I feel the leather is dry. Renovator...
Does anyone have experience using this Saphr crème to restore jackets?
It’s mainly used for boots and dress shoes. It works well to mask light scuffs and to give it a light shine for boots in my experience.
Can’t get urad where I am at. The Saphr is probably quite similar?
Newbie question here. I made a design mistake when I was getting a custom jacket made which I decided to not use a zip on the chest pocket.
When the jacket is new the pocket looks fine but as the jacket becomes more broken in the pocket kind of deformed and constantly pops open which bothers...
@dudewuttheheck I think I read in your review that your vanson is a sz 38? If so does it have a p2p of about 21” and back length at around 23.5”? With your chest at 41.5 does it feel restrictive at all?
I don’t normally pay too much attention to off the rack jackets as most are too long for me. But it seems like this vanson could work as we share similar height and chest size.
But the product pictures don’t look nearly as good as Jake’s pictures. Are the early versions better?
This makes me want to get a vanson c2. It looks so badass.
Anyone know how does the new c2s compare to the older ones in terms of hide and fit? I have checked out their website but they look kind of different. It seems they are cut longer in the body and the sleeves don’t look as trim?
Shoutout to Rizky at Onderhoud. Just received the engineer remake made with the Maryam 1071 Horsebutt overdye black.
The leather on the first pair I received was bad. Grain was really loose on the left boot across the entire vamp as soon as I put it on.
This second pair seems to be much better...
As I’m new to the jacket game I have always wanted to try out aero’s bread and butter Horween FQHH. However the badalassi makes it difficult to justify getting one. I figure it’s pretty hard to beat.
Maybe I will get a used fqhh when one in my size pops up.
Congratulations. Beautiful boots!
It normally takes me about 2-3 months to fully break in a pair of Flame pandas. It really is no fun at the beginning.
I found the reason why these boots are so robust and heavy. It is because of the lining leather. I bought a pair from him recently with no...
I have always been very interested in stuff from Ooe Yofukuten. I think I have a similar build and preference on jeans as you do. Waist around 31-32”, thigh at least 13.2” leg opening around 9”. and your Ooe look like they fit perfectly. May I ask what’s the best way to purchase them and how do...
