    The post in another thread gave me the idea to start this new thread.

    The content should be photos and description of your own (or of people you know, no uploads from websites, etc.), (Leather) Jacket that is heavily aged through use (not artificial).

    In contrast to my brother's leather jacket (see the following pictures) I am not able to show such a jacket because I have too many jackets and it would take decades to just show a patina on one of my jackets.

    "used but not used up"

    This thread should be renamed "Terry's school of fades".

    This is my first leather jacket, bought in the mid 90's. I've spent all my under and postgraduate years literally living in it. Had it redyed once, haven't worn it for more than 10 years (well it doesn't fit anymore).
    Sorry for the poor mobile photo.

    Beautiful fading pattern. Clearly shown the jacket is worn and not just fading/ aging hanging in a barn

    This jacket was posted a couple years ago by a forum member here. He had just had it relined by Aero but eventually sold it on. I think the black leather patina adds character and a nice ruggedness.
