How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    I found the measurements to make perfect sense. They were pretty much identical to this one I already have (also Said to be french) but the one on order has some really cool details and features this one don't have. Screenshot_20200405_234045_com.android.gallery3d.jpg

    I had a brown horsehide one of these in the 90s! I bought it in Paris at the flea market.
    Loved it for Winter in New York.
    Does yours have the belt?

    Seems like this one had the belt loops removed unfortunately, but I probably would never use it anyway. Did yours have the removable fur too? Seems like a crazy detail to me, but I love it:D

    No, mine was missing the fur collar, but it had all the buttons for it.

    Yeah, I was thinking about the removable lining. Seems weird to put both a beautiful wool lining and then a thick removable sheepskin one as well, but I'll take IT. :D

    Had to have to it. The earliest Sears issued MC Jacket I have seen. Love that lining! I'm putting together a visual timeline on the Sears MC jackets 1949-1962. Hercules, Fieldmaster, Fraternity prep, Oakbrook. Catalog pics with Real World jackets.

    Here are the auction pics.

    Just bought a Aero Leather Teamster for 150 GBP plus 30 GBP shipping which seemed like too good of a deal to not to go for it. Been missing my own Teamster (my entry leather jacket!) ever since I sold it off in a moment of stupid. This will probably not see too much wear but at that price it will be a good beater for those colder nights out in fall.

    That’s the one. Of all the Herc M/C’s. That is THE ONE. Nice score Terry. Wearable size? I’ve seen a few over the years but all quite small.

    Yes it is The One. It had a 23 chest, looks like it from the pics. 1st time seller, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Look forward to seeing it in and around the leather tree! Also the idea of a pictorial review across the label range is great!

    2nd attempt at a brown HD CR. First one got returned to seller as they "forgot" to disclose the crazy hack job 23" sleeve alteration and said it was 25 all original etc. This one appears to be much more legit and in great condition. Rayon lining instead of the too warm quilt in my brown Excelled. Fingers crossed...

    nothing coming, nothing being considered at this time. My leather jacket interest is a 10000% a spectator hobby only now. I don't even wear the few leathers remaining. However, some cool looking jackets posted by members.

    I was apparently drunk during this lockdown and ordered a schott A2 in 46
    I am nominally a 48 (as per the tape)
    I look forward to seeing how well/badly it fits

    Pics will follow when received

    Think I posted one up in this thread last month but if not I can take another. Picked up a current stock Colorado aka CHP quilted. Actually much prefer this style vs my Chopper. While it is a different tannery / batch etc, it's still heavy duty. More on the lines of riding gear (tool) vs fashion jacket IMO.

    There’s a seller on Etsy selling a cidu knock off that, given your leather recalibration skills, could look the business for 1/3rd the cost.
