    The deals can still be had. The one I posted early on a good example of this. A $150 Vanson is a steal. It's free money, basically. All the big names have sure gone up in price but a somewhat obscure, but equally awesome brands can still be found for pocket change.

    For example, some of the nicest CR's ever in my opinion have been made by Fidelity. It's the jacket that Theroux wears on those photos everyone got crazy over. And yet, they can still be found for under $100.

    Ignore their cross zips, though.

    You’d have to steal my money to get me in that Brimaco. 22” back length? LOL. NO THANKS! And the older one might actually be only 21” in back! That’s a sports bra/halter top/bolero!

    Sometimes things are priced low b/c they are undesirable. I can’t see a very large audience for either one of those jackets tbh. Unless of course there’s an army of 4’ tall men in need of a leather jacket.

    No, no. The Theroux jacket is a Schott slant zip chest pocket CR. Unless you’re talking about a different photo... and i agree Fidelity WAY undervalued compared to how cool they are. Some of my favorite.

    He's been wearing a Fidelity early on and in the Inland Empire movie. That's the one with the patches. It's the early heavy horsehide version. These jackets would fade red. Unbelievably cool in every possible way.

    Not every jacket is for everyone.

    Just found a couple of deals, but I bought them. At least I think they are deals.

    It looks like the leather is pretty thick. I can't stop looking at it, but I really don't like it. lol.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If the coin pocket were not present, I think it would enhance the look.

    Looks like they tried to recreate the HD Sportster with that one.

    Yep, was thinking the same thing. So that's HD Sportster in Vanson quality. Can this actually be topped?

    That jacket is a giveaway at the BIN. Length can’t work for me. Otherwise that sale is closed.
