Lost worlds leather togs "b" happened today
you beat me to it
Most excellent. Mine can’t be too far behind.
It really is a great jacket, a fave in my collection - failed zip notwithstanding. Mine was a bargain from they bay but I would maybe even consider buying new
Vanson Gambler in brown comp. weight cowhide. Heaviest jacket I own but strangely the most comfortable.
Real McCoys Buco J24-L - apologies for the truly dreadful picture quality
Yeah boy, thats why you sold tfl,
Buco jackets- there great!
Must be the way the weight is distributed on that jacket.
Vanson have excellent patterns - in terms of riding in it, range of motion, etc. - as far as I heard.
Yeah definitely, as far as ease of movement this pattern is very well thought-out.
The CW brown cowhide leather was very supple from out of the box too regardless of its hefty weight, which makes it a very practical jacket.
I recommend this jacket to anyone looking for a bit more minimalistic version of a cross zip and Thurston has quite a few new leather options that work really well with this model.
Montgomery Ward. I like the mouton collar on this one, the length is nearly too short but it doesn't bother me, and if it did I couldn't wear any of the older cross zips. The belt buckle isn't great, it's like it's made of tin, but otherwise I like this jacket.
Forgot this one. He has been on display right in front of me.
It is a Butwin which I assume is steerhide from the early 60s.
Nice jacket, and one I’ve been eyeing too.
Do you have any pics of it zipped?
Looks like my Montgomery Wards.
All the same pockets, back panels, side zips. Yours is missing the belt? Mine is only 22 in back! But a 42 everywhere else. I'd wear it a lot more if it had at least 2 more inches.
I hear ya Corky, I wish vintage jackets were 1” longer in both body and sleeve length.
Took my first foray into crosszip nation—quarantine has me spending too much time on eBay! Never been sure if I could pull off the style, but this one seemed like a good one to try as it’s not too motorcycle-y with only handwarmer pockets and no belt, just side laces. And it was cheap!
The zip out liner is missing and I have no idea who the maker might be but the leather is pretty thick steerhide (the jacket weighs 6 lbs), has a biswing back, and the main zip is a #10 YYK. If anyone has any guesses as to the maker speak up!
Sorry for the crappy pics
I'd love something like that, minimalist but robust. Very nice.
Everybody's been losing weight. You too, Terry?
If so, there may be more jackets from your collection in the For Sale section... (wishful thinking).
Have you received it yet? Fit Pics?
