    I bought this jacket here from Sweetfights and never wore it. I think COVID and the fact that I no longer go into an office has somewhat killed my ability to wear a leather jacket this cool. Anyway, it deserves to be worn and I'm just looking to get back what I paid. $1500 shipped. Would also be looking for trades in something a bit more casual.

    Best,
    Nick

    These photos do not capture the depth of color of this gorgeous leather.
    A fantastic jacket.

    You're right, I just snapped a couple inside this morning. Maybe I'll go back and grab a few from your original post, it really is a beautiful jacket.

    I am tapped out presently or I would be interested. I purchased a black Kensington from Sweetfights and regret passing it on. I can not imagine a better CR being made

    This brown cafe racer from Dave Himel was especially thick and fit the same as my first black Himel but did have slightly longer arms.

    Maybe a silly question, but can you guys that have worn this jacket confirm whether wearing watch with this particular model (with unlined sleeve zippers) is essentially a no-go due to being too tight at the wrist when zipped to accommodate a watch and with the unlined zipper it would mar up a watch when unzipped. Is that the case? I'm asking because I am a watch guy and very interested in the Kensington but would not want to be unable to wear a watch anytime I'm wearing my leather jacket. Any experience from those that have had this model?

    If u wear a watch, that zipper needs to be lined, as it sits right on top of the watch. This is my Kensington, with lined zipper.

    great way to address this, didn't;t know Himel would make this modification. BTW, looks to be a very nice PP you have there - cheers!
