    Do I need to worry about fakes when buying used leather jackets?

    If I'm looking to buy a used leather jacket for brands like Freewheelers, Real McCoy's, Himel Bros, Field Leathers, etc. do I need to be wary of people selling low quality knockoffs? Are fakes of these brands common? What are things I should be looking for if I want to avoid fakes?

    Fit Check: Buzz Rickson N-1 Non-Stenciled Demotex-ed

    Hey everybody, My Buzz Rickson N-1 arrived from HPA. I feel like the overall fit is solid for a N-1 jacket, but it does feel like the arm holes are digging into my armpits a bit. It's nothing that will make me hate the the jacket, but I'm curious about your thoughts on a) the overall fit, b) if...

    FS: 1960s Cal Leather Horsehide CHP Motorcycle Jacket - Size 38ish w/Great Patina

    Here is a fantastic Cal Leather, horsehide, angle zip, motorcycle jacket in a smaller size (38ish I think). I just bought it but unfortunately it doesn't quite fit; I had this exact model for many years and foolishly sold it. This jacket has a fantastic distressed patina; perhaps the best I've...

    Are these lines (scars?) natural to the leather?

    I was just browsing the internet and found this. The surface of this leather jacket got me curious. Under the two chest zippers there are many lines/scars. Are those supposed to be scars that existed on the animal's hide before it became leather? Or is it something that happens over time as the...

    Can someone tell me if a black RMC J-24 will entirely change into brown over time or would it keep its original black color but only show brown in high wear areas?

    Can someone post pictures of a dry (but not cracked) leather jacket that needs conditioner vs one that does not need it?

    I've heard that you should condition your leather jacket after 20 years, if it gets wet, or if it looks dry but I'm not sure what a dry leather jacket would look like. I want to be able to spot the dryness and condition it before it starts cracking. Does anyone have pictures comparing dry and...
