    Yes, Langlitz made it for me. It's actually a modified version of their Columbia jacket. They're a great company with a well-deserved reputation for quality workmanship.

    Some badass motorcycle jackets you guys are posting. I'm a returning rider since early last year, after being away for 15-odd years,. I have a bunch of new motorcycle jackets, but no top-level leather jacket that has been broken in yet. Wore my Schott 141 for a bit, as well as a Japanese brand jacket (Degner) that's a bit too small on me so doubt I'll be wearing that too much going forward. Recently picked up a new Lost Worlds Buco Rider that I'm really liking - need to put in a lot of miles in it though before it comes anywhere close to the personality of what you folks are wearing. Also, waiting for a Vanson Chopper from Insurrection :D

    My two riding jackets, a Lewis Leather Dominator and a Schott 644.

    I had the Schott altered as the stomach was huge, took out a good 3 inches from the bottom hem and 1 inch from the chest.
    The Lewis Leathers is custom made and is a perfect fit.

    I always wear a Knox armored shirt underneath when riding.

    My Vanson Comet PLU-3. I puchased it off the rack at Insurrection a few years ago and sold it to purchase a Langaliz padded Columbia. I had the opportunity to buy it back so of course I jumped at the chance. Now I've got both the Langlitz and Vanson in my collection. As much as I like the Langlitz, I think I like the fit of the Vanson more.

    The only one I've got -- Aero J106. Minus the belt and loops to keep from scratching the tank.

    I'd like to get another, more heavily lined for the colder months (and about 3 more just because) but that's where I'm at right now.

    Another vote for the Vanson Enfield- in the venerable HH which unfortunately is now hard to come by. IMO it's just the best jacket on the planet for the money.

    Oh, right! I'm just looking for a jacket like this one. I opened a threat (http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?81214-Doubt-about-Leather-Forever) where I ask for some help to know places or makers which sell this kind of jackets nowadays. I posted this pic:

    It's the same jacket except for the yellow stripes and belt loops. @strokes1251, do you know if it was made by Leather Forever? Thank you!

    Vanson produces a padded model of CHP, called the Colorado. It does have belt loops, though.
