    Which one???


    Spot on fit for a Comet. It's a spectacularly nice jacket.

    Thanks! It's an instant favorite. Got it at a really good price. Love the tartan lining, too.

    I said this purchase made me feel like I've entered the "big leagues" because this Comet gives me a greater understanding of exceptional leathers and construction.

    I have no frame of reference for knowing if this example is of Vanson's older or newer "comp weight" leather, however.

    I have a Vanson Comet in 44" bought new (in a clearance sale here in Queensland Australia !)

    It is my "coolest" leather jacket ( in terms of temperature !) and yes they are cut shorter then the norm.

    So short it is strictly for the Harley on days over 28C. I REALY like it....

    This Real McCoys take on the Lee Storm Rider should be in my hands tomorrow. I have very high hopes for this one, and I don’t think I will be disappointed. One thing I am particularly happy with is that RMC kept the jacket boxy and on the shorter side unlike some of the other repros.

    Well, to be honest there’s a fair chance it may be slightly too large. If it is, then it’ll be moved on I guess. It should arrive (hopefully) by the end of the week. Let’s see where the cards fall...

    I sent the serial number to Vanson. They tell me my Comet was made in Feb. 2003. So it’s the older heavier comp weight. Winner!

    Building anticipation for sure...I had a lovely Numac of Sydney Kangaroo leather trucker jacket in 42" and by a coupla years ago it was "too squeezy" for me ! It now resides with my brother in Tasmania , he is the mountain biker skinny/fit type and it fits him well

    Don't forget me, I wear a 44 too:) I keep trying to look the other way when I see a cool leather trucker, but I fail. My failures will become apparent soon.

    Your Golden Sun Feeds ones are equally good! I really love both. And brand new, at that!!

    I sent John some dough for that Acme A-2 on his sale page. Fingers crossed. Goodwear virginity lost on Easter!

    I'd really like a Moonshiner in tumbled cordovan. I managed to sell a cordovan LHB and a cafe racer jacket. Still trying to shift the SB and (possibly) a Stockman. That'd leave me with a Highwayman, a Teamster and a 50's HB. They'd be my 'exit jackets'. I'd squeeze a Moonshiner in to celebrate my freedom. :).

    That’s a beautiful oxymoron, my friend.

    I have three jackets I’m very interested in and I have asked the sellers questions and not a single one has bothered to answer. That instantly puts me off. If you can’t be bothered to reply to a simple inquiry about your wares...go pound sand.
