    I’m totally in love with the collars on these 40s jackets!

    I bet you could. Besides, this is much easier for the non-rider to “pull off” than a full blown MC jacket with all the accouterments.

    You can wear the jacket while sailing your dingy. How cool is that?

    Looks to me to be in league with Langlitz and Cal Leather

    I actually like it more than Langlitz hide. It's the same hide my Vanson trucker jacket is made of. I posted a lot of photos of it here: https://www.thefedoralounge.com/thr...levis-lee-type-whatever-jackets.91747/page-27
    It's an extremely heavy, shiny monster of a leather with fantastic character. This is the only kind I truly believe hasn't been corrected. Shows great variation in grain. Cross zip in this would've been my dream jacket. If only I could afford this one...
