    The Background . . .

    When posting jacket photos here, some people post with the same background every time (or most of the time). Nothing wrong with that. Others post with different backgrounds every time. Some people clearly pay attention to the backgrounds of their photos; others clearly do not. Do you pay...

    Sometimes blind trust works out . . .

    In a world rife with duplicity and skulduggery, I am pleased to report that my imprudent blind trust of a new, unknown member’s offer of assistance resulted in a successful transaction. A few months ago, Iron Heart released this flannel shirt: It sold out with lightning speed (literally...

    Most great artists are not appreciated during their lifetime . . .

    I just read @jonbuilder ‘s new post wherein he describes his newly acquired vintage deerskin jacket manufactured by “WM Gallagher Co.” in Fenton, Michigan – “The Deerskin Center of Michigan.” I have never heard of this company but, based on @jonbuilder ‘s post, they made a fine jacket. This...

    Freewheelers Mulholland (Spartan Leathers Sportwear Repro)

    First and foremost, huge thanks to @dudewuttheheck and Duke Mantee for making this happen. I am very grateful!

    The Relapse

    We all are well versed with the supernatural TFL Effect, which corrupts many new members of this fine community: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/the-tfl-effect.94299/ . I love watching new members as they succumb to the TFL Effect and purchase new jackets at a furious pace. Their...

    Is it ok to negotiate and/or offer less than the listed price? What qualifies as a low ball offer?

    I just read a thread in the classified section wherein several members denounced the practice of offering to purchase a jacket for less than the listed price. Frankly, I was surprised by the disapproval. I have sold several jackets here on TFL and, in every instance, I received offers for less...

    “An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” ~ John F. Kennedy

    As I was enjoying my self-imposed temporary respite from TFL, I became consumed with a philosophical question that compelled my early return from hibernation. “To err is human.” ~ Alexander Pope. “An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.” ~ John F. Kennedy Even the...

    Fine Creek Leathers Tyler

    Fine Creek Leathers Tyler Approximately two years ago, I reached a state of mind rarely found in this community: leather jacket contentment. Yes, I know: blasphemy! I liked my assortment of jackets and I did not feel the need to purchase any more. Nevertheless, in the recesses of my (tiny)...

    First new jacket in a couple of years . . .

    After resisting the urge for a couple of years, I finally succumbed. I took a risk with an OTR jacket that I had not tried on. The risk paid off. The jacket fits like it was custom made for me. More to follow . . .

    Minimum Annual Usage

    Earlier today, @Carlos840 wrote: This got me thinking. Because of my local climate and the number of jackets I own, I do not wear any individual jacket more than five times a year, let alone ten or more times. If I had a minimum usage requirement of ten days per year, I would only own four...

    Lewis Leathers / LL Cowhide

    I am contemplating a Lewis Leathers jacket in cowhide (sans chest patch). I do not have any experience with the brand. For those with real world LL experience: 1. How is the quality of the workmanship (e.g., stitching and seams)? 2. How does the workmanship compare to: (1) Aero; (2) RMC...

    Rocketman: Bernie Taupin's Leather Jacket

    I saw Rocketman this evening. Stellar movie! Scene after scene, Bernie Taupin (Jamie Bell) wears a series of great leather jackets. I did a quick search and it appears that Taupin was/is a patron of leather outerwear. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any photos of the best jackets in the...

    Do Denim Type I, II and III Jackets Look Like Cowboy / Cattle Rustler / Ranch Hand Cosplay?

    Given all the recent discussion about denim jackets and my indelible penchant for controversy -- :p -- I thought I would light a match. Do Type I, II and III denim jackets evoke visions of cowboys, cattle rustlers and/or ranch hands? Are they borderline cosplay? Or, have these styles...

    Shadow boxing, rowing and cross-arm stretches

    As we were about to leave the house for Thanksgiving, I showed my wife my Buco J100 and my black Himel Kensington, and I asked her which I should wear. I fully expected her to select the cleaner looking, less worn Himel. Much to my surprise, she selected the Buco and observed that the Himel...
