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

    I have this Schott Per 2 on the way in from Johnson Leathers. The jacket is super thick steerhide and very comfortable in an XL which will allow for layered riding. The sleeves were unfortunately way too long at 27.5" and I normally go for 25" so even though it was not a problem on the bike they still looked "wadded up" even when riding. I contacted Damon who was extremely helpful making sure to taper the sleeves down so the bottom of the sleeve was similar to the opening at 27.5". He also replaced the piece of Tin buckle with a solid brass buckle. Now I realize Schott is not anywhere close to LW or Aero but I think this is going to work out well because the jacket doesn't ride up and is not so tight around the waist so comfort leads to a better riding experience; at least for me it does.

    Damon made the first 2 shots here before shipping it out today. Personally I think JL did a damn good job of shortening these sleeves and the buckle looks a lot better than the original Schott buckle.

    Here's a shot on the bike and not a good photo but one can get a good idea of how the sleeves bunched up.

    Another Schott. Nothing fancy, non perfecto label but still has the 70's talon zip. It was a good price and my size. Also never had a semi belted bike jacket so I figured Id give it a go.

    they quote covid, i believe them, but at the same time they say "there are six or seven jackets ahead of you", i don't know if it's six or seven of any model or six seven of the 1947, while 100 other models lol

    I was real close. Started a thread about it couple weeks ago. Glad I didn't though. THink it would be too short and the cut on it is extremely tapered. Goes from 23.5 ptp to 18 bottom hem. I kind of got a Vshape going, but if it wasn't even going to hit my belt, I think I would have looked like a matador. I may order a Ridley with Indian Ranger inspired layout at some point, but I got pretty lucky on ebay past couple weeks.

    Picked up a Branded Garment CHP which has an Indian Ranger sort of vibe with the black cross zip, brass hardware, very tapered with the side ties. And couple hours ago, I think I did good on this San Jose Just Leathers jacket. Seems to be in great shape, has the zip out liner and all that.

    LOL. Thought it was a Fine Creek, "mismatched" panels and all. Couldn´t figure out why you of all people should deviate from your usual effortlessly great style, but then I found the reference to the jacket.

    Well this arrived today , Oxblood Fidelity café racer. Usual "vintage bouquet". Good order otherwise.

    Currently it's in the top loader washing machine on a one wash 2 rinse low/zero spin cycle of 59 minutes.

    Using Eucalyptus woolwash. My wife told me "get that outside" the minute I opened the box ! Should wash up OK.

    A fair bit of red/purple colour in the first water dump !

    Couple or more dry days shaping up so it will hang up outside in the shade after slow dripping in the bath overnight.

    Then the routine with RM Williams leather treatment. I may re-oxblood with Shoe polish first , see how it washes up.

    Seller original photo it arrived here in the dark ! Same photo posted earlier in this thread sorry Fidelity Oxblood cafe racer 1.jpg

    I think the mismatched grain on these panels looks cool! Not in the contrived FCL way, more in the “this is a mass produced utilitarian jacket, no ones gonna care about mismatched panels way”. More authentic.

    This is my second attempt at a cafe racer style. The first one was a bit too big on me so I ended up giving it as a birthday present to my dad. This one should fit me better hopefully.

    That buffalo leather looks amazing. Those pocketflaps will make it more unique as well. Great pickup.

    The guy on here who recently started the thread about Langlitz customer service ordered his Columbia in June and received it a couple of weeks ago, so his took about 5 months.

    I ordered one at the beginning of September and I was told it'll be done by February unless covid restrictions are eased.
