Here is a Capeskin just came in from Japan. It really stands out in Brown against that black.
Nice! is it the aniline or the pigment dyed shinki?
Would like to see fit pictures
he did one in the what jacket are you wearing today thread
I believe this one is aniline, it has reddish brown tones from what I can see (mrproper has the same jacket) greg stopped offering this specific brown because of the difficulty matching panels. The pigment dyed shinki he offers now looks more seal brown to me.
Just received this baby, i was a bit surprised when i opened the packet cause the jacket is lightweight, i was expecting something thicker, but still it is a nice one
I now own 5 "one star", i think i'm sick
What model is this? Doesnt seem like the standard 613, but Ive been known to be blind before ha
This model is called "Rosie". it's a special limited edition released for Schott's 90th anniversary. They also released the "Michael", in a thicker steerhide. Incredible jackets.
Names were chosen in reference to members of the Schotts family.
They were mostly sold in Japan.
Almost correct Rosie was made for the 100th anniversary, i'll add a picture of the incredible red lining
They all are very nice jackets
This one is the 90th :
This one is the Michael :
Ah ok, Ive actually seen the Rosie before. Not in person online so Im familiar with it now that I know what it is. I would have hoped it was a bit thicker/heavier. Do you also own the 90th?
Now see @Mysteryos comment on heavier for the 90th. Either of you own that one? Would love to see more on that one.
Lucky you I wanted my jacket to be made from this hide as well but he told me the the remaining hide had already been spoken for.
Yeah a bit disapointed but it is pretty nice overall
I don't own the 90th or the Michael, i like them both so if i can find them for a decent price i'll probably pull the trigger
I have always loved that killer red liner though. That is special!
Really like the style of this one -- who is the maker/what is the style? Picked up on Yahoo Auctions I'm guessing, or do you have other recommendable places to look out for?
Yeah totally, here is a picture of it :
Edit: the jacket weight is +/- 2.1kg in size 40
Yes, yahoo auction Japan through buyee. A 1940s Stanhouse of Rockford Illinois. Don't know the style. Not seen anything quite like this. This one is a fairly large size 40, just tight in the waist on me. Need to loose a few pounds.
Japan yahoo auctions are interesting. See old jacket there you just don't see here in USA. Many are size 38-40, so good if you are in that size. Prices aren't out of line and neither is the proxy or shipping cost.
Pretty nice jacket
About buyee, are you using often? If yes are you happy with it? No abusive fees?
The other day i was thinking about trying it but feedbacks on trustpilot were pretty bad so i did not
Beautiful color, too.
This is the 3rd jacket I have bought through buyee on yahoo auction and it has worked very well. You have to take time and pay attention, but you learn how it works. I have done buy it now with all my purchases, most jackets seem to be listed that way. After you buy, buyee does everything. Japan Post is not delivering to USA at this time. I have used DHL which has been extremely fast. The shipping is around $50. It cost $21 to use a USPS large flat rate box for US domestic shipping and nothing fits in one, so the $50 international with quick service doesn't seem too bad.
I'm buying jackets there for the same money I would pay if they were in USA on ebay. The STanhouse is a good example, never seen one like this on ebay. There are at least two more I am considering. Size 44 is not as popular in Japan, so some advantage for my size.
I'm sure others here have used buyee or something similar. This is the only one I am familiar with.
