og bros for a song. a little big for me.

these are made by y2 to og bros design, limited quantities, unevenly hand dyed with some lovely grain. I have the same horsehide and it's very nice stuff.

Sears Hercules half belt by CSC - $200 BIN (with offer)
Big problem in the shoulders where leather looks stretched from improper hanging. Has anybody been able to remedy this?
View attachment 565192
I've owned this Hercules in a couple of different pockets. The "Stiff" leather and the scuffing look exactly like mine. This jacket is made by California Sportswear probably early 50s. The jacket I owned did not have the CSC logo. I doubt any conditioning is going to soften the leather, just the way it came. The hanger burn is deep, The rest? They have an offer, big shipping, try it on..

2-Different California Creations CrossZips - 2 different sellers, but both size "40". Both look to made of very thick, heavy Steerhide with amazing graining developing. Both have fixed quilted lining and would make a great daily driver, or starter jacket if you fit this size...(there are more out there, just put the first two I found...)

Jacket #1 - Size "40" with a bit more usage and more broken in...$205 BIN or offer
