    Leather jacket length short torso

    Currently waiting for my Lewis Leathers 402 to arrive (ordered at the beginning of Sept and still waiting!) Getting nervous about the length, even though I went through the measurements extensively with them, speaking on the phone, along with sending photos to them of a jacket I already have...

    Custom Langlitz experiences?

    Hey all, I've been thinking about pulling a trigger on a custom columbia for a while now. I haven't ordered the catalog or spoken to anyone there yet. I wanted to hear some of your experiences first. How expensive? How long did it take? How easy are they to work with? Any outrageous sizing or...

    Fine Creek Leathers - "Leon Custom" - size 40 (2mm Horsehide)

    Been sitting on this jacket for a while, and just doesn't fit me quite right. At least not enough to justify keeping a jacket of this price and magnitude. It deserves someone wearing it regularly. Fine Creek Leathers - "Leon Custom" model in size 40 (which fits like a US 38). I wear a 38 in...

    Himel: An Existential Review

    TLDR; I ordered a bespoke Chevalier jacket from Himel Bros. Leather. It took 20 weeks to complete, more than double their estimated lead time of 2 months. The jacket itself is excellent, but their service was not very good, especially at the price they charge. What was supposed to be a...

    Custom Vanson — any insight?

    Apologies if this info is floating around, but an initial search didn’t uncover anything obvious. I’m between sizes on the Vanson Commando (LeftField and ButterScotch Tri-lab) and am toying with the idea of having modifications made to the fit (on a new jacket order, by Vanson during the...

    Gail (RIP) from Schott: her thoughts on fit and custom jackets

    Was just reading this on the Schott forum and it seemed interesting enough to post here as well as a tribute to her: Our employees, most have worked for Schott about 20 years before the first Schott Retail store was opened, personally this is my 38th year. It is easy when you have an actual...

    Fit check Aero Premier Highwayman

    Aero Premier Highwayman in black CXL fqhh with zipped sleeves. Brass hardware. Bought from the Aero's sale section in order to mainly use as a "fit jacket". How would you improve the fit? I am thinking of adding an inch or so to the sleeves and - maybe - pulling in the waist section a bit. I am...

    GoodWear Leather - 1939 Werber A-2 (new)

    So, John is alive. I just received a custom Werber 1939 A-2 from him. For those of you who are curious, I've been on his waiting list since April 2017, when I first started looking at getting a new leather jacket. I ended up ordering an Aero Wayfairer, but John's name was thrown around a lot...

    Custom Johnson Leather jacket, virtually new, size 40

    Gentlemen - about three years ago I had a jacket custom made at Johnson Leather in San Francisco. In the window I saw a "Japanese Train Engineer" jacket they were selling and combined its details with their standard M-200 motorcycle model, which offered a slimmer and shorter fit. The result...

    I thought it might be interesting, if we can have a thread for people to talk about their Kickstarter, if it is related to the forum. Let me introduce my Campaign: I love suspenders and I wear them most of time, but I couldn't find a fair price and good customization options. So, I created...

    Leather Jackets in China : Fabric Markets, Taobao, Vintage, and Custom Leather Shops

    I’ve been living and working in China for the last 5 years, and as far as I know, I’m the only person on this forum that posts from China. I figured it might be helpful to share some of my personal experiences regarding the leather jackets I’ve purchased while living here. An honest and accurate...
