    Johnson Leather Jacket

    I have a hard enough time with yokes on the back, so I'm probably not the guy to ask, lol.

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    Lurk from time to time, I think I got all the jackets I ever need at this point. My jackets are languishing in my closet, CA weather doesn't afford much opportunity to wear them so they haven't changed much.

    Best leather for a lifelong jacket?

    Went through my raw denim phase, glad I'm done with that. Stretch selvedge is all I'll ever wear now, and I've even gone "cheap" with that by buying Uniqlos. What's funny is that I wear them without care and they've been holding up great, whereas I respected my raw stuff and they look worn down...

    Does this bother you?

    <shrug> take it off, flatten the sleeves, fold the jacket in half, lay one sleeve over the other, compare.

    Five Star Leather Jackets

    I know we went back and forth about this a while ago, but how was your experience with them using a more common weight jacket like 3oz or less? I gotta imagine that the higher weight leathers is a chore for anyone to get consistently right. Reason I ask is because I would think by now if you...

    Difference tumbled cxfqhh and normal cxfqhh

    My experience with the two is exactly as the name implies, tumbled is taking the new CXL and tumbling it, essentially beating up the leather, think of throwing a jacket into a giant industrial bingo ball tumbler with the balls. Result is a more broken in leather without using chemicals. With...

    Himel: An Existential Review

    Consider this constructive feedback, not dogpiling. While I am firm proponent of "the customer is NOT always right", I'm not sure what's left to discuss. OP shared his experience, which to be fair is one point of view of the situation. Yes, the internet is full of trolls who are quick to...

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    Nowhere I could think of and it's pretty fluid, for instance the burgundy leather on mine was a new offering.

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    Yeah, the leather choice is a tough one, and you never know how a sample will translate into a completed jacket. I know they just made a CR in the same cordovan leather, and apparently they have other colors as well, food for thought, lol. Hope all is well with what's keeping you near home.

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    I hear that, but my thought is, if you're going to spend this sort of dough on a jacket, and all that separates you is a 5 hour drive (or couple hundred bucks roundtrip these days) from the full JL experience with the added excuse of visiting friends/family, I mean, why not. Much easier to just...

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    It's funny, if I'm being totally honest, the personality of the Hampton at first impression didn't wow me at all. The wearability absolutely did and that was my primarily goal, hence I was satisfied with the choice, but tbh couldn't help but think did I sacrifice too much for the comfort...

    Johnson Leather Jacket

    This is probably their busiest time. Riding jackets getting made/repaired for spring and summer, and then all the large orders for fall and winter season. In the past, I found email works well with them, but keep in mind they don't have a dedicated staff to take calls/emails. When I visit, I...
