Anyone knows where I can find zipper pulls like these?

Dear leather jacket experts,

I hope this message finds you well & I hope this is a right place to post this question!
I recently purchased a Hercules jacket for myself and would greatly appreciate your expert opinion. Do you think it looks too tight on me or this is acceptable?

Thank you for your time!

Does anybody know to Identify deerskin?
I don't know if you can tell by looks , but it has that soft supple spongy feeling that I believe deerskin is supposed to have.

Dear leather jacket experts! Please help to identify a jacket that I just bought. A tag is missing.
Thanks a bunch! I was told by the seller that it might be a Montgomery Ward, but there are different ones that were made under that company. Leather feels nice, soft, supple, high quality. I'm not sure of the hide, but most likely it's a cowhide. I'm not sure if the collar is made of an animal or it is faux, but it feels pretty genuine to me & also warm.

Thank you!

Whats the difference between an Aero 1930 vs 1950 halfbelt?

Why doesn't Aero make a 1950s halfbelt version of the Maxwell?

Why does the Schott 641HH fit well on people with board shoulder?

Thank you,
the hercules looks too tight for the style
the cross zip looks fine for its style

i'm having a rough time deciding between a b3 or a b6. I like both, but i'm worried about the flap on the b3 looking dumb on me. looks great on static glamour shots, but in practice i feel like it would be annoying having it flapping around. however, i always wear jackets with at least 1/3 zipped up. does anybody have images of a semi zipped b3 and/or b6?

Does Vanson have a double rider jacket similar to vintage Schott Perfectos (613/618)? With slim sleeves, no “d-pockets”, just the essentials

What’s the best regional Vinted site to check for Aero stuff? The German or French Vinted, maybe?

As far as Vanson is concerned, Have you checked out the C2 and C2RN? I can't speak to the slimness of the sleeves, but they seem to have all the standard perfecto features. C2 for more standard perfecto, C2RN for no belt or loops. You could probably call Vanson and ask for information regarding the sleeve slimness if you like, I've found them to be very helpful on the phone.

Thanks a lot! Will check out these jackets.

Since the principle is the same as with an Irvin or D-1... no, it doesn't bother me. At least I don't think so.

great looking jackets, they suit you very well. thanks for the images. the flaps do look good on you, but i have a smaller frame and I'm worried about how it will look. on the other hand, i'm worried the b-6 is too 'plain' zipped up

With pleasure. A B-6 looks like any other leather jacket without a wind flap. I like the flap because it's even warmer than if it's just a zip. I think the flap suits every frame.
