I bought it. We will see. Tracking sent. By the way is there a 12 step program for people like me?
I could offer to be your sponsor!!
I need it too...
Just hope the seller has been in touch with you - the "0" feedback is a bit of a challenge for me. Hope you get it soon!

Yes it certainly was but not anymore, I made an offer on it last night and he accepted this morning.
I’m very curious about it, I’ve never seen that particular label, the red/black pattern lining and unique buckle.
Cool. The lining and buckle look great. The horizontal pocket caught my eye. At this point, I’m interested in a handful of vintage makers or a unique design by makers I appreciate. This pocket config sort of fits into the latter grouping. I like Reed, but never on my radar. I look forward to better pictures.
I know what you mean Reed was not specifically on my search radar either and this listing never even mentions Reed but it was certainly unique and caught my eye. Ended up paying more than I wanted to on a gamble but it was haunting me.
Also only focused on vintage and or unique, not a big fan of the “perfecto” for that very reason. Great jackets but also the most common and copied
Suede shirt jacket; Golden State Leather Fashion made in California; size large. $50 OBO. Link
Collar has swagger.
Was this posted? Ward, $50 + shipping. Pictured measurements just short of being helpful but dammit, he tried. And listing says proceeds support a rescue farm, with cows, which is ironic, but still cool. Does mention an issue with getting the (main?) zipper started, but no details on that.
What is this Vanson brown leather jacket called? Trying to find it's history.
Label looks kinda modern. Is it a Ward?
T. I have the same jacket but with blue arm lining. My is a Hercules. But did you notice, no bling on the back...
Yes, more modern Wards jacket. I was already walking the earth when this bad boy was for sale on some rack.
Any thoughts on era? (Not to put a freshness date on JMax, but...) 1970s? Leather still looks fairly substantial. Seems the Penney's/Ward/Sears hides trended thinner over the decades, maybe starting in the '60s? But I'm wrong a lot.
I bought this jacket a month ago and returned it. It’s a newer production just as @JMax stated, thinner leather not as well put together as earlier MW-Brent jackets. Zipper almost impossible to get started because it’s sewn to deep into the front fold.
Digging this Vanson for $175 shipped, but it has patches on the sleeve and back that ruin the deal for me. https://www.ebay.com/itm/294396612631?
It's their take on a Swedish motorcycle jacket. I have none seen a brown one before. They no longer make them. Be aware, at least in my experience, they fit huge. I had a size 38 with a 28 pit to pit. No idea what was going on with that thing. Make sure to get measurements if you are looking for the style! Given the overall bulkiness and lack of vintage zippers on all of the jackets I have seen in this style, I'm going to say 1980s-2000s production.
Herm's Leathertogs straight zip MC jacket in Small, Steerhide. First bid $200.
Herm's are pretty rare, definitely a worthy part of MC jacket history.
I would like to see your Hercules jacket that looks familiar to the Albert Richard. As I said I can't remember what I saw that makes me. Think Hercules. I don't seem to see it but I could be missing it. The company that made Albert Richard was in close proximity to Sears in Chicago before they sold the name to East Coast maker oh, so I'm not sure trying to make a connection
Note they crossed out the address in PA and moved to Florida. This catalog looks 60s?
