    Im letting a few bits go as I need to downisze ahead of a move next year., and first up is this, purchased a few months ago from @58panheadfan, who described in his posts the history and details of this jacket better than I ever could, so Im just going to copy and paste his info - I hope this is...

    Washing a jacket, flooding a utility room, and other mishaps.

    Hey all - I thought I'd document my experience washing a particularly objectionable leather jacket, if not for anyone else, at least for me. Last week I got an old Perfecto and it was in a real state - lining gone in a few places, holes in the pockets, zips gone etc etc. All fixable, if not to...

    Joe McCoy Fit Check - Opinions gratefully received

    Hello all - Unsatisfied with my last, not entirely positive, experience of hookless / vintage zippers, it seems I'm a glutton for punishment and so today I took delivery of this lovely Joe McCoy Nelson/30s Sport Jacket. If feels really comfortable, it seems to fit nicely, but I was hoping for...

    Hookless Zipper Hell

    Hey all - So - a tale of woe, and a plea for any advice. I sold the Freewheelers Mulholland I had for sale today, and decided to get it ready for shipping - made sure the pockets were empty and clean, made sure the lining was lint free and looking nice, and gave it a final once over to ensure...

    2018 Freewheelers Mullholland Sz 44

    As title - FW Mulholland in Sz 44. I got this a few weeks ago and I wanted to love it, and I sort of do - it fits great, it looks great, smells great, it is next level in terms of craftmanship, and looks stupidly cool - however I think I'm after something a little more lightweight as spring...

    Hello all - I'm sure somebody here has some experience of and/or thoughts on Double Helix Works jackets? My eye has been caught in particualr by this jacket, which the more perceptive among you may just notice bears an ever so slight resembelance to a Freewheelers Mulholland -...

    FS - ELMC / Eastman Californian American Walnut 46L

    More or less a catch and release on this jacket from me, purchased from Gav of this parish a couple of weeks ago. Absolutely beautiful jacket, but Ive gone and bought something a bit expensive for xmas(details of which will appear soon no doubt) and need to backfill some funds. Fits a true 46...

    The Real McCoys Buco J24L Sz 44

    FS - My beloved Real McCoys Buco J24L Sz 44 / L - Stupidly cool looking leather jacket. Includes mouton collar. The Shinki 'teacore' leather is showing slightly through at the usual points - with a bit more wear and breaking in this will start to look even more awesome. Now realistically too...

    Detailed photos - Vintage Buco J-22

    As requested in my hastily aborted for-sale/trade thread, here are some detailed pictures of the jacket in question. Interesting to see how its construction differs from , but also in what ways it is the same as, my McCoys Buco J24L. It is much more comfortable to wear than the modern version...

    Vintage Buco-J22, Sz 44. FT or maybe FS

    Putting this up to see if there’s any interest in trades at present - absolutely phenomenal vintage Buco J-22 from the late 40s/v early 50s I think. In unreal condition given its 70+ yr age - so much so that some may remember when I showed it off here many doubted that it could possibly be...

    Fine Creek Leather Leon Custom Sz 44

    Hello all - As title, Fine Creek Leathers Leon Custom (comes without the epaulets and belt, or cutoff parts) in Sz 44. Fits like a 42(or more accurately a 43 if such a size where commonplace) so is now realistically a bit too small for my 6'2 frame. Really cool looking jacket, purchased last...

    Hey all - Today I took delivery of this lovely item - an Aero 'Seven' jacket in their natural CXL FQHH. To say Im impressed with the finish and general quality (not to mention the smell) is an understatement - it seems so well put together and is such a lovely colour in person. Now, heres my...

    New old Buco J22 pics

    Hey all, Some of you may remember a few days ago I was asking for opinion of a 50s Buco which I had spotted for sale at what seemed a decent price. Well, it arrived yesterday, I've been getting to grips with it (literally, it's like armour - the heaviest jacket I've ever come across), and I...

    What do any of you make of this..

    Has anyone any thoughts on this as regards price, condition, desirability etc etc ? Seems pretty cheap compared to some that Ive seen, but then those that Ive seen have probably hung around unsold because theyre too pricey...
