    Been a while since I posted any of my newer Johnson Leather jackets, but this one came out too good. Horsehide with wool lining on the body, quilted nylon in the sleeves for easy sliding on. It’s somewhere between a Togglehead and a Swedish messenger jacket, which is exactly where I wanted it to be. Alan and I went back and forth fine tuning it, and the result is exemplary to me. I can’t really buy stock jackets anymore when the ones I put together in my head come out so much better. So, if anyone’s on the fence buying from Johnson’s leather, go for it. They make incredible jackets and Alan is always willing to try some thing different and figure stuff out with you.

    That's certainly one you would never find another one of on a rack anywhere!

    This must be your 30 or 40 jacket from Johnson?

    That's awesome. Not my style but I can still appreciate the craftsmanship and vision.

    I actually sent them a note yesterday about doing a B3 style vest. Anyone done anything like that or anything sheepskin with them? Curious about price, timeline, etc. Otherwise think I'm going to pull the trigger on one of the aero ones. But I do want something from them one of these days.

    Love this! It's really different in a good way and so unique to you that it's plain fantastic. JL can really do creative stuff if they need to and this is a perfect example.

    The Horsehides from Horween and is 3.25oz. This project was creative and so much fun to be involved in.

    Lol, not gonna lie, this caught me completely off guard, fuzzy collar, stripes and all, but I absolutely love it! It's got a lot going on for sure though in a super fun way, plus that blue hide is incredible. What's the back like??
