I really like the Talon Zipper without an opening at the top.

All the original leathertogs i have seen had either the same buckle that FW used or an even worst wire buckle.
It's just what Leathertogs used to use back then...

Complaining about a reproduction being too accurate is a bit weird, maybe in the future learn a bit about your heroes before you meet them.

Jacket looks amazing to me! I understand being sad/upset not having everything used on it such an expensive jacket being "top" notch. But as more informed individuals have already said, I guess it's just the buckles thst have always been used.


I say if it fits and the only thing that bothers you is the buckle...just forget about it and enjoy the jacket! Don't let a simple buckle deprive you from enjoying such a beautiful jacket

After seeing all the other awesome FW La Breas here. And many long searches later. I found an used one on Yahoo Auction for a little over what a new RC jacket would cost.

Don't meet your heros. The high expectation of these (when new) $3k uber jackets will always end in disappointment and mild depression. I have a section on my rack for these jackets. Even at used price it hurts. This is the last time I buy into these uber jackets. F my habit. Don't meet your heros.

Congratulations.
Such a La Brea in narrow and long would also please me.
Since I would also accept the buckle ;-)
But I can understand that. If I have other expectations in mind and other demands, then I am of course disappointed by something like that.
The only thing that helps is to inquire beforehand (which I unfortunately do too seldom myself).

I see nothing wrong with that jacket. It's gorgeous and well made.

The pricing is something you have to accept from Japanese made products. It is what it is.
