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

    Makes sense. I’ve been talking to Damon there about a custom vest. I’ll bring it up next time we talk.

    Thanks

    I bought this HH TRD. Hopefully it’s not a TURD. I remember @Guppy saying these were really nice jackets. Seller claims it’s 9lbs of HH. We’ll see. If the fit is good and it’s a quality jacket I’ll send it to Dena and have the goofy belt removed.

    I owned one like this is brown with side lace adjustments that was very cool, but did not fit. This one is black and should fit.

    @ton312, I am interested on hearing your thoughts about TRD. I have been in their shop a few times long ago. I think their leather quality is all over the map. Some pieces looked like 10oz dragon hide, while others looked very flimsy and thin. I had a m/c vest from them, decent weight(maybe 3oz) but a lot of loose threads and very flimsy pocket linings.

    Your example looks very robust from the pics. Hope it fits and meets your expectations.

    Vanson AR3. Only bidder, which surprised me. This would be my only Cafe style jacket. I need at least one to feel complete.

    I returned the Thurlow. Leather was flaking, cracked...the jacket was heading towards the long sleep. Very nice though.

    I’ll update the thread! I have no experience with these guys and no clue what to expect. I’ve set the bar pretty low.

    Looks really cool, but who's TRD?

    I was going to ask the same thing. Couldn’t read it even with enlarging the picture. And the only TRD I know is Toyota racing development

    TRD stands for “The Real Deal” LOL. True story though. That’s the name of the maker. Made in Ohio, I’ve seen not too many over the years. The hide looked good on this one and the seller seemed like a nice guy and I’m bored. So why not. Truly not expecting much. It’s also being delivered with matching chaps that I will have zero use for. Figure if nothing else it’s good to have a heaping pile of nice brown HH folded in the closet should the need for scrap or a project ever arise.

    Basically a Johnson Leathers Ryder Vest lol. 3” collar, 2 handwarmer and slanted chest pocket, half belt with 2 pleats and side cinches, added side panels for the half belt to be able to cinch, antique brass hardware and #7 zipper

    The inspiration is rather direct. I think some of the details will differ, and the leather is definitely going to be lighter and with a less heavy finish, along with having the poly satin liner.

    @Colin G Congrats. Beautiful jacket your new Dustbowl. Looking forward to fit pics. I often was close to buy one as I like this design but no longer need it due to the Brakeman coat. I hope you got it for a good deal. Probably from Yahoo Auctions, right? New or used? At least it looks new.

    @ton312 Cool looking jacket with the side laces, leather color and belt - I've never heard of this brand before. If I was you I would not cut off the belt. I'm curious if its weight is really 9lbs. Looking forward to fit pics!

    Not a jacket but have a new belt coming in case anyone looking for a solid belt. From a e nelson they make belts for langlitz. I bought a black one from langlitz and wear it all the time. Getting same configuration 1.75 in heavy leather dark brown with brass to match my new whites boots

    still have not figured out for my custom JL center zip CHP jacket if going with belt loops or no loops. And debating on underarm gussets, eyelets, 3 piece sleeve, antique brass or brass hardware, badge holder, etc lol...I think if I get loops I might go all out and have a e nelson make me a sam browne belt and then add the badge holder. Prices are great for a solid thick leather usa made belt.
