Mens trousers were worn at the natural waist, not the hips. I like actually prefer this than pants at the hip. The way suits are tailored now you can see shirt material winking out from under a buttoned jacket. It never looks right

If you are bored, do this, it's kind of fun:

I'm not sure what the quality of these is like but they offer a platinum package which upgrades the leather to 3.75oz. I imagine the stock leather is probably flimsy.

"not sure what the quality of these is like..."

When these First brand and other import jackets first appeared on the market in the late 80s or early 90s I was shocked that so many people were buying these, when they could have one of the moderately priced US names (Fidelity, Lesco etc) that were so much better for just a few dollars more.
The hides felt like shit, stitching was sloppy, the fit was just not great.

But after eBaying one of their newer sport riding coats at a ridiculously low price for a Harley Davidson/Marlboro Man style project a while ago, I must admit that they've come a long way. Pretty nice stitching, good riding position fit, although the leather is still cheapish and over processed.

Yeah I assumed about as much. One thing they do offer that genuinely intrigues me is the 20oz canvas mechanics jacket. It’s out of stock now but I may grab one next go round.

Not really a deal. I've never seen a Walter DYer in this color combination. Brown/black Walter Dyer Size 48. Pit-to-pit = 24". https://poshmark.com/listing/Rare-W...orcycle-Jacket-48-US-63bc74dc81078aa2c07cbb9d

Would run into WD at a motorcycle events back in the day. Walter was... a little different, more of an artist type than a businessman. He would be willing to experiment and try different things.
I've seen quite a few of his jackets in multiple colors, although not this style.
It's definitely interesting, kinda like it, but don't know that I'd buy it.
The right person will probably fall in love with it.
