Any pics of the front?Comparison of two Cal Leather CRs of similar cut and size.
The one with the standard racer collar I purchased from Monitor who got it from Ton.. It is unlabeled. Monitor
mentioned he sent pictures to the current Cal Leather and the jacket was confirmed to be a Cal.
The 2nd jacket is also unlabeled a commend occurrence with Cals.
steer hide jacket I have owned.
I believe that Cal made jackets to order a lot along the lines of Aero and as long as buyers stayed within Cal's guidelines customization happened. Jacker no 2 gets a dress collar and is the rim shortcut of my 60s Cal racer with the 6 panel back seen of early heaver hide the longer version of the Cafe Racer
I am having trouble inserting text under the pictures but generally jacket 1 is the jacket with the most sean leather
I am returning jacket 2 because the sleeves are too short no fit pictures

Jacket no 1 with the standard collar is made with a heaver smoother hide, the more desirable hide IMO, and reminds me of horsehide. Jacker no 2 the hide more resembles hides on
