    Christ and God almighty, this is the coolest thing ever!

    This thread has literally cured me from wanting more leather jackets. There's just so many insanely nice stuff out there that I'm overwhelmed, can't deal with it and am giving up. I'll just stick to looking at the pretty pics from now on. Like that RMC. That's freaking perfect! I don't quite understand the benefits of having the lining leather perforated but I love the idea.

    ^^I have one of those Vanson's with perforation on the front panels. My first, quality leather jacket. Fit is terrible, you all will really laugh if I ever do a thread on it. But I absolutely love it and got it for a whopping $85 in 2007. It's a Mark II Cobra with the cotton lining, and no mid-arm zip vents, was fully broken in at that time, but has gotten a lot more so. These are great, practically un-damageable jackets! :)

    On edit - funny but I just read the ad. It was her ex-husband's. That's how I got mine so cheaply, via Craigslist in Chicago, she even took a check from a stranger, she was ready to be rid of it!

  8. I love my Comp Steer Vanson Enfield. One of my favorite jackets. That is definitely a good starting price Guppy.

    Avoid this seller like the plague, he lied to me about the condition of a jacket i bought from him, after i gave him a negative feedback he harassed me with threatening messages and phone calls for a week.
    It only stopped after i repported him to the police.
    The man is a mentalist.

    I thought the same, but it says "Japanese"... not sure I would trust without a tag photo.

    I’m not sure how I missed this. It ‘twas me... I’ll throw up some fit pics after it arrives. The price point royally sucked - but the killer style of the jacket plus those perfect-for-me measurements couldn’t be passed up.
