    Langlitz versus Cal-Leather....how wide is the gap? Asking for a friend

    I've handled a number of Cals and a couple Langlitz for resale purposes. I've never really been super impressed with the hides I see on Langlitz jackets, even when I'm able to sell their jackets for top dollar. I've seen some Cals with mediocre hides (I have one I'm listing soon right now!), but...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    Pretty sure Mr. S and a lot of other fetish brands had their jackets made by Golden Bear. JL’s model is pretty similar too, though.

    1950s Horsehide Cycle Champ Harley Davidson Jacket, size 40

    A straight 23". I live in NC. Definitely no musty odors, but it does have an unusual vintage smell I'm not really able to identify. The only time I've detected this smell in the smell was on a similar era police jacket from Buco. Kind of rubbery? Hard to describe a smell, really, but not "bad"...

    1950s Horsehide Cycle Champ Harley Davidson Jacket, size 40

    Hi all, Just listed this one on Ebay, would obviously prefer to sell it here to avoid their fees. Excellent condition 1950s era Cycle Champ jacket. No cracking or damage to leather. Great grain. Only flaws to note: 1) Chest and sleeve zippers work smoothly. All other zippers are a bit...

    This one would probably fit me and looks great, too. I've sworn off buying jackets for a time, though :(

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    It's quite an ugly jacket anyway. Also the seller told me it has significant mold issues. Also the seller failed to include several pictures of irreparable cracking in highly visible areas - very deceptive. I highly encourage everyone to not bid on this jacket, stay away! Also, it's a black...

    Cal / Al's Leather Leatherman NYC CHP Jacket, size Large

    Quick bump. I'll throw this on Ebay soon and would prefer to avoid their fees. If you're interested, make an offer!

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

    I think it's a Beck, not sure what the actual connection between these two brands was though. Check out this old deadstock Beck. It matches the jacket to a T. Tag label at the neck, stars on epaulets, and belt placement (but this other jacket has had the stars, belt, and tag removed).

    Cal Leather White Two-tone Six Panel Cafe Racer

    Hi all, This is a really unique Cal jacket I stumbled onto a while back. A standard six panel CR, but what makes it unusual is the two-tone coloring. It reminds me a lot of a Bates racing shirt. Cal CRs are fairly uncommon to begin with, but I don't think I've ever seen one like this...

    Cal / Al's Leather Leatherman NYC CHP Jacket, size Large

    I measured it tonight and came up with 18 inches at the hem, but I know a previous measurement I had was 18.5 inches at the hem. Somewhere in that range - I can give a picture if that would be preferable. I have another jacket I'll try to get up here tomorrow night that you might find cool...

    Cal / Al's Leather Leatherman NYC CHP Jacket, size Large

    Hi all, I have a couple jackets I'm finally getting around to listing. This is one that's sat in my closet for awhile. It's in great condition with minimal signs of wear. Tagged a size 48 for Leatherman NYC, likely a more recent creation by Cal Leather or Al's Leather. I'll throw it on Ebay in...

    It's a Fidelity, a maker from Boston. They rarely have brand labels, but they do have the "This genuine leather garment" spiel tag. Maybe 80s? The zippers look a bit more recent as opposed to all Talons or something.

    Any clues to what brand this could be? All Talon zips, partial tag torn off (see the bottom of the collar in image #1), nothing in pockets. Seems to be a modern maker though.

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    It's a Fidelity, around 1970s. Pretty good jackets, but a bit overpriced for $200+shipping. A lot of sellers don't identify them correctly because they tend not to have a maker label, just this on the inside. Unfortunately, it makes finding them a bit difficult, despite the price. For instance...

    Do try this at home: leather jacket repair tips

    Any recommendations for smoothing out a bunch of stiff zippers? Working on some TLC for a jacket that was probably in a barn (very wrinkled, mildew smell, some mold, etc) and while the zippers work, there's a decent resistance when I try to zip any of the zippers up and down. Don't want to...
