Great deal, really great jacket.
thanks, Carlos. Really helpful. So funny about Schott, now that you say that, it's true, they do tend to fit short and wide. I have a love hate relationship with my 141, somedays I'm like yeah, this jacket is fire. Love how the leather feels. But the sides are a mess with the biswing, gussets, straps.
Yeah, I think I'm going to get an Aero D1 or B6 which have more of a fitted look over the B3. I did find an old Schott B3 from Japan going for like $275. Looks to be in good shape, so might try for shitz and giggles. But like I was saying about the leather, it doesn't look like there's any grain in it. Just kind of like it's been sand papered LOL. But living in SoCal, I'm going to get maybe 10-12 wears out of it a year, so I definitely want it to be spot on, otherwise it's just going to sit in the back of my closet.
Cal LAPD 44L. Snap cuffs. Sweet jacket.
Branded CHP. $180
Schott Legendary CHP. Very nice jacket.
Goodwear A2, check out the other items for sale.
Hall American Horsehide Biker 38, $250 BIN. First time I hear of this brand.
A very interesting way of leather processing, certainly not for everyone, but still I guess someone could use it as an inspiration and apply similar approaches on a jacket?
To me it seems that the rough side of leather is facing outward and has been partially polished. Yeah some fashion treatments, but doesn’t affect the thickness of leather and you can still make a hefty jacket out of it.
I've got these rough hide boots of which some parts are polished. The shine only lasts on parts that don't crease. Once the leather creases it will loose it's shine. Therefore I don't think this will work on a leather jacket. Too much creasing.
Reminds me of this Schott/3Sixteen Oiled Rough Out. Not identical obviously but probably as close as a jacket can get. It’s near the top of my wish-list. Long been sold
Out but maybe will pop-up used somewhere.
The word on the VLJ is that this is an Eastman with a wonky hanger, and not a GW label.
The leather on his RRL car coat looks amazing.
Could you share a photo? I guess u
you have to be in the US to be able to see his other stuff.
I follow this seller because he often comes up with a lot of GWs. The car coat he has is a bit big with short arms for me.
thanks for posting this concern/assessment. I would think folks there would know pretty quickly. The label looked familiar, the jacket looked to be quality. Does John put his personal label in all his jackets? I've not owned one of his A2, I've owned a bunch of others and I don't even remember!
I hope someone informed this seller of the identification of that jacket.
I don’t think he puts his name in the A-2 reproductions. Someone pointed out that the reproduction label was different. They also said that they ran it by JC and he said it isn’t one of his. It still looks pretty good to my untrained eye.
Great price of you're looking for one of these. Brand-new with box.
Check out this listing on Grailed:
This is kind of cool!
I like the convenient rings to attach your nipple tassles... Quick detach ready!
Was thinking the same AND there's one on the back, too.
But really, I'd cut the rings off (because wth) and it's a kinda neat jacket.
