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

    Talon repro size 5. I don't know how much they charge (Greg ordered them), but I have been told that these Japanese repros are much more expensive than Chinese repros. 0BD06184-D83D-4122-80FC-F04870CA7CCA.jpeg

    They look real nice. I like the idea of brass hardware. The warm glow of brass is more appealing to me than the cool sheen of aluminum. On most leathers, anyway. Match it with a brass buckle on your belt and you are good to go!

    If they are solid brass and uncoated, they will be amazing in time! They will develop character along with the hide.

    It was actually Greg's idea to go brass for this project. First I said no, let's stick with nickel. Because somehow I thought brass goes well with brown leather, nickel with black leather. But then I though about it some more and I saw this addict clothes post on Instagram. Combination looks badass. 3B8CCBA0-F205-474E-A7B8-7027EA061B5B.jpeg

    That's what I am talking about!
    I had a steerhide Lesco cross-zip with brass hardware, sold it, and I got this horsehide Spiegel, also with brass. Somehow brass works better for me with cross-zips, perhaps because there are a lot of zippers and the color stands out. Dark brown tape reinforces the look. Cafe racers I can have with alu on black tape.

    How can you tell the difference between solid or coated?

    Can't wait to see your project. Happy days ahead for everyone who ordered the brass hardware.

    Don't remember who told me but I was informed to use a magnet, a solid brass hardware should not stick but coated brass will be magnetized.

    The solid will tarnish and age beautifully...the coated is more yellow and will dull slightly, but then wear to either copper or zinc as the coating wears off. I know Waldes makes unvarnished brass zippers, and they start to tarnish once you touch them.

    Yep, looks like it needs a good clean and it's definitely interesting. Like how the back has the half belt without the side adjusters.
