This Bates went for $270 on etsy a few months back. I passed on it cuz I really was not convinced I'd wear it...
@Will Zach You mean, not even for Pats games!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!???????? If Belichick wore this instead of that raggedy ass cut off sleeved Hoodie Brady never woulda left and Giselle prolly woulda stuck around a bit longer too!!!! Lol But yeah............. All patriotism aside, perhaps its not an Every Day Jacket for most...... But the guy who CAN rock this on the Reg is just BOSSING LIFE!!!!!!!!!

I would love to find one of these in my size one day.................. if I were President, I would have my entire administration wearing these jackets compliments of the American Tax Payers!!!!! Prolly the very reason I would never get elected but still.................imagine sitting across from Putin wearing this baby!!!!

Only $2400, act fast! Can anyone explain how this jacket is worth $2400?

I have a similar original the same size, probably made by Rough Wear clothing Company, will make a better price!

I think because the Mulholland fetches high used sale prices that some think that all Freewheelers are a safe investment but sold listings tell a different tale.


I think I learned from here that a safer choice if you plan to sell your jacket after a few seasons is to buy vintage, if you get a good deal.
I see that’s what many veteran members do

I'm glad it's a size 36, otherwise I'd have to shell out 500,000 jpy. This is my dream jacket.

But is yours also made in Japan in limited quantities that only 'drop' once a year?
Just have to see if it makes the yearly lineup. If it does not sell like the Muholland, FW would really drop it.
The leather actually looks kinda cool but that price is ridiculous.
It is a reseller who inflated the price by around $1800. I remember the listed price of a CH leather vest was GBP1700 while a leather jacket was GBP3300 back around 1992. Those have more silver than this one.

I will provide an opportunity to buy Vintage tomorrow! One is an "Original Mullholland"!

Amazing find! A true testament to the Golden Years of leather jackets. Looks like a West Coast jacket probably bay area San Francisco. This is an example of the Highest end of the craft c.1937. Probably a custom made, small shop jacket that was very expensive. Highest quality leather, hard wear, and execution. Amazing.

I created an album with pics of this design, it's on my wishlist to have it reproduced.
