    I've just posted this in a different thread, I have 2. My new Langlitz in goat, and my Aero King of the Road in FQHH. Both very different, but both outstanding.

    impressive jackets everyone :)

    I like collarless jackets, the tan is sheep with padded lining modified from touring vent jacket model, and the black is heavy cow of my own design.

    check out Northstar Leather: http://www.nstarleather.com/optimizer/category/Horween.html#.VP2sC44gIdU

    I recently bought a navy cxl business card case and I think it's well made for the price. I guess the owner sources his cxl leather from Alden and buys them as scrap. His prices are very competitive too.

    here's a couple of pics of my navy cxl business card case:

    I actually like my Northstar Leather wallet better than my navy shell cordovan front pocket wallet from Ashland Leather. For some reason my shell wallet from Ashland came with raw edges and the stitching was weird. I've posted a pic below of my Ashland shell wallet. the unfinished edge looks a little sloppy and I'm not sure I like the raw edges. Northstar Leather at least emailed me and asked me if I wanted edge paint on mine. I'm not saying Ashland makes an inferior product, I just wasn't blown away by the craftsmanship. It looks as though they simply slapped two pieces of shell cordovan together and called it a day.

    Just watching BBC4 doc on Mods and Rockers, and was intrigued about the suggested origins of jacket studding as a way of making motorists aware of the biker by reflecting the headlights. Opinions? Interestingly, one ageing biker pointed out that when people went sliding along the tarmac, the studs would heat up and leave the wearer with dozens of 'cigarette burns'.

    I love my Vansons and LW for on and off the bike use. Essentially the same jacket...

    I don't like collars too much on a MC jacket either :)

    The d pocket is the LW. A phenomenon of a jacket but for whatever reason I always reached for my Vanson first when I needed a leather to ride in. Both are black. Just a straight model e, highwayman. I couldn't justify keeping the LW but somehow could justify purchasing three model e's.

    I would think you want pics of vintage style jacket. But hey ho you asked the question, and to prove I ride. Yes this is my favourite riding jacket. GoGo Power Rangers. It's a Dainese.

    Thanks Damo. I don't know why but I always reach for my Vansons first. The LW is a perfect jacket in every possible way imaginable but I just love that Vanson and for the $ it can't be beat.

    Thank So! I really love it. So comfortable, and really functional. It's a really good experience when dealing with Langlitz. I thoroughly enjoyed the process. I love the LW of yours. They are superb jackets.

    Langlitz is my final frontier. Never owned one but have admired them and everything I've seen and heard tells me I should try and have one spun up for me.

    Do it! You can just throw a deposit on and start the waiting, and just pay it off over time. Makes it real easy. Ask for Scotty, he is great to deal with.
