Is this the one from Thurston bros vintage sales page?
Couldn’t resist trying this one out. Been looking for a nice vintage brown Perfecto. I hope this is the one.
I saw this on another site, 23" seems pretty short:
Schott A2, size 42 in mint condition. Starting bid at $0.99!
Did I post this already? Looks like a really nice jacket.
Just found this jacket for 100e, it is a chevignon, tough choice
He’s still active on Instagram and Facebook. He posts on the Facebook group VINTAGE WORKWEAR (Pre-1960s) and has his own Brick&Mortar shop now: https://m.facebook.com/vintagehaberdashers/
Just checked that out. Pretty cool stuff. Good for him.
Seems really nice for 50 quid.
50 quid is starting bid, but definitely worth watching.
Oh, right. Didn't see but either way, I don't think it'll go for much. These shearling coats that aren't any major brand usually sell for peanuts and this one is particularly nice. Lol, coincidentaly, it seems to be the closest match to the "bomber" jacket Tom Hardy's wearing on that photo that every eBay seller is using to sell their crappy fake.
That single panel back is impressive.
Eastman Ostmann size 40. £650
Maybe not the best deal, but these don't come up for sale often. P2p seems small for the size.
HD Cafe Racer
These are supposedly very low quality jackets. I haven't handled one but heard by many people they're best avoided at any price.
100% agree. I had one, flipped it as soon as I could. Thin, light, flimsy cowhide on these. Awful, really. Stay away! For good HD racer look to black one-pocket horsehide or steerhide versions. Too bad there is no good brown version, but that's life.
Thanks-I just happened to spot it as an off-shoot of looking at something else.I probably associated "Sixties" as being of reasonable quality.
The HD Sportster and the one that came after the jacket in the link you posted are all good quality pieces, the latter one being made by Brooks but it's just that I heard many times this particular one sucks. It looks nice, I even like the seam extending over the pockets thing but the quality is apparently abysmal.
The leather on this brown Lesco racer looks nice and thick - 38. I don't know why the link is so long...
Mr. S San Francisco 42 $500 looks like new
