    Hi new here. Is wearing a leather jacket basically an invitation for trouble?

    In all honesty to the OP, leather jackets (particularly biker jackets) stand out on guys. Back in NY, during jacket season, I sometimes used to look, on purpose, whether guys on the street in NY Metro area are wearing leather. Nope. Nobody (statistically speaking of course, I am sure very few...

    Celebrities jackets

    A Polish actor Mateusz Kosciukiewicz is wearing what is almost certainly a Harley Davidson One Pocket Sportster jacket. He may not have fame (beyond Poland that is), but he certainly got style.

    Hi new here. Is wearing a leather jacket basically an invitation for trouble?

    The only trouble I envision is having a good comeback to the question: "Where is your bike"?

    One for those with unfinished horsehide jackets,

    Don't use Pecards or Obenaufs on a new natural CXL, it will darken too much. Later on, maybe, but initially just wear it. @navetsea did a tremendous aging job on his natural steerhide jacket, and only applied conditioner after some time when he wanted to achieve a deeper color.

    How can I get the wind flap removed on a Vanson Mercury jacket?

    I hacked mine off with scissors. Off with the thing! - very satisfying.

    Schott leather care

    Yes, Pecards will make it darker and more uniform. There are conditioners that preserve patina, though. URAD I think is one.

    Schott leather care

    The misconception is perpetuated by conditioner brands. You'd think most of them would be out of business if all new jacket owners knew they don't need conditioners for the first 20 years, lol. Different story with boots and perhaps with jackets heavily exposed to elements, like riding jackets...

    ^^ For that money I'd enjoy a nice trip to Scotland and bring the jacket myself. Edit - you get hit with VAT then... they get you one way or the other...

    Aero leather natural chromexcel

    Just tell Aero you want a batch with lot of pull up and color variation. They will tell you if they are able to honor your request. It depends on batch-to-batch variations in natural CXL and only Aero knows if your request is possible to be met.
