What are your thoughts about a type 3 with zippered cuffs and epaulets? Does this thing have an identity crisis?

Anyone know what kind of vanson this 2 pocket DR is? Looks appealingly minimalist but possibly also a bit shapeless!

Not related to Five Star Leather, but did Vanson Leather Prices just go up? I’m recommending Vanson for a friend who wants an affordable biking jacket and they’re asking for $700-800+ now. Could of sworn they were under a $600 for almost most.

They went up about two years ago. Honestly they were underpriced at the previous price point. I don't know how they covered labor/materials with that.

What price range are Branded Garments leather jackets new? They sell for less than Schott and Vanson on the resale market but some of them seem to be very high quality.

They went out of business a few years ago.

to the point: anyone with strong feelings about the where the adjusters go on "hercules" jacket? Have seen them placed at the abdomen like a half belt or at the bottom hem...asking mostly in terms of fit and functionality

They were originally low. For my jacket they were moved up to the 1/2 belt where they function as they should. I feel the low adjusters and “pot belly” were the flaws in the OG pattern.
thanks, yea...feel like they would be more functional there as well

Is the reason there is no thread devoted to Regius jackets that there aren’t enough in circulation? I’d love to see more examples.

Does anyone have an interest in creating a separate forum or email thread by invitation only with classifieds offered at cost for likeminded members who appreciate “camaraderie”?

I’m thinking of @Marc mndt @ton312 etc. just an idea.

Who makes (or can make me) a brown center zip without any chest pockets? Think the LL Corsair. And closer to $1k than $2k.
