    That is bad. And if potential first-time Vanson customers with some leather knowledge see that, they are moving on.

    Though a few folks are already bidding on that jacket. They will either be disappointed or blissful in their ignorance of what true CW can be. Now I better understand why you returned this jacket.

    I suspect that HH’s jacket is batch or some small timeframe- specific. Others here have purchased new Vanson in the CW and have been very happy. Now, the octagon/x-150 is always stellar. Your CHP in those hides would be amazing too.

    The stock chp i used as a fit jacket and returned had some stitching that was not great. Might be a difference when going custom with the leather and attention to detail. Or not who knows. Going to give them a fair shot we shall see. Will be a beater bike jacket regardless

    I think and hope that will be the case. My commando is spot on and my custom Chopper in an in-between size is great. My vest too.
    Edit:: talking about stitching here.

    I think stock in older Vanson is on the rise.

    Vanson needs to order their leather from Horween and be done with it. Quit playing around with these backyard tanneries already.

    Just got an email back from Kim at vanson. I asked if they could make my CHP out of horween horsehide. She said they can do it, but I would have to order direct from Horween and ship to vanson. She gave me the square feet needed. A little too involved/hassle for me, but maybe someone else would be up to the Challenge.

    “Hi Brad,
    Well yes you can, but it becomes involved.

    I do not have horween horsehide.
    If you want that you must order it from them and send it to us.

    You will need to order at least 60 sq ft I think.

    The CHP2 has a very large back piece, which is nice, except that the
    horsehide is front shoulders only and one whole hide piece will need
    to be used for that.
    There is a lot of waste because of the pattern piece sizes compared to
    the
    sizes of the hides. We never put it into production for this style when
    we
    used to have horsehide to use because of this issue.

    Let me know if that is how you want to proceed.

    Kim”

    I did not need to know that. Wonder how much Horween would charge? And I assume Vanson would still charge the same for the jacket, even though I provide the leather? Thanks for the info, may have to look into this.

    @Psant25 just walked by a room full of degenerate leather aficionados, tossed in a grenade, and ambled off while whistling. Not cool.

    This does change everything now... Not for me but for anyone having a lot of money and living in the US, it does change everything.

    Maybe a group purchase is in order.. spec out a TFL Vanson and place a larger HH order from Horween, sounds like there might be interest from a few people.

    I’ll drive down to Horween and pick it up. It’s less than 2 miles door to door. @Psant25 did Kim mention the cost if you supply your own skin?
