I've written this thread in my mind a few times. A couple of recent jacket post got me going. I started this thread in another post and copied it here. This isn't a court and I'm just ranting. Curious what others think on the subject. Here is how I started. How about a a thread on 50s Vintage leathers? Big topic! Not all were Created equal as a subtitle. I have a variety of opinions on most of the major brands as I believes others do. Here is an example: I am always leery of 50s Harley Leathers especially the Steerhide. (I've got a Horsehide HD jacket coming on Monday) I am always leery of Schott Steerhide jackets from the 50s (I've been disappointed by all I've owned and most I've seen) I am always leery of Buco Steerhide jackets from the 50s. (I've owned one and it still survives here at another home, they have to looked at closely) I am always leery of Grais jackets. (they can surprise though) Leather quality during the 50s was all over the map. (heightened demand and production?) Appalachian Tanned & Tailored were lesser quality (And I love this Brand) OK, I'm going to bed.
