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

    I don't think it is going to get much cleaner. Came with a credit card receipt dated 12/26/1970 and a couple of coins from the 60s. Probably not worn much since the 70s. It is marked Genuine Pony with a size 40 tag in a pocket, with sorta a wool lining. Sportime Sportswear 1940s.

    i didn’t. The Sherpa turned grayish. I since used polyester dye to make the Sherpa more a chocolate brown.

    It looks good as it is and it's probably good it hasn't been worn as much as it could've been so dirty/stained by now. When you say pony is that also considered horse hide?



    Does it bleed when you dye a lining?

    I call Pony Hide horsehide. I'v had jackets labeled Pony, not sure what the difference is other than the obvious age. Like Calf skin instead of Cow. Some one may have a better answer.

    Got it. The YKK 2-way in antique is buttery smooth and bulletproof. Recently installed on my J23. And looks great imo.

    There is a reason Vanson and Bates use YKK on their MC-gear.

    Yeah 10 ykk two way with paperclip pull. Damon said they have been thinking of going with paperclip pulls as standard.

    My first two way zip I think I am going to be pleased esp with heavier weight leather until it breaks in for sitting, bikin, etc

    Thanks for sharing, that 2 way zipper being offered as standard hardware seems like a great idea. Happy with that for sure.

    Yes, that will definitely appeal to riders/casuals and hopefully bring them more business. That will hopefully translate to more leather options!

    I’m a hair trigger from buying this. Price is USD $480 shipped. I love the style but is the faux distressing too much?

    Only you can answer that. To me it’s not any more or less than some of the LVCs or RRLs. If it’s this leather, with this exact distressing pattern, it actually doesn’t look that bad. Some of their other leathers look very cheap and plastic-y. The distressing on most LVC jackets vary a lot between jacket to jacket, so it would make me really nervous to order one without seeing it in person first

    I’m not into pre-distressed leather, no matter how well done. I know it’s fake. A mental block I guess. Much prefer a pre-worn jacket.

    Be careful, I don't see anyone share their rebel jacket on his instagram page.
