It is a darker red, my Tenjin is the flashy red you are referring to
^^ that's very cool. I didn't know you had a flashier red, sorry about that.
Please ... Stop torturing us...
Let's see the end result!
In the thread that appeared a few weeks ago about selling the one jacket you regretted selling, I posted that several years ago I sold a riding jacket that I wasn't able to find because I wanted to replace it. Well, after several weeks of searching I found that Eagle Leather had taken over production of this jacket, or at least distribution of this jacket and it is now under their name.
It is the Bronson motorcycle jacket. I signed up on their website and got a 20% promo code so I bought it. The only thing that really gives this away as a motorcycle jacket is the extended lower back to keep from exposing your backside bottom while leaning over on the bike. I don't ride anymore, but this jacket in a medium fits like it was tailored for me.
It's also full of features like built-in removeable armor in the back and arms, back vent for air flow through the sleeves, a deep inside pocket perfect for concealed carry as well as two deep front pockets. It also comes with a Thinsulate removeable liner, shoulder epaulets and the A-2 type stand up collar. The leather is thick and on the stiffer side when first worn. Not overly stiff, but it has some body to it.
If the leather and construction is anything like my first Bronson, I don't know how they can afford to sell this much jacket for the $240 they charge. I got it for just over $200 with 20% off plus tax. Shipping was on them.
I'm happy I was able to track down this jacket and replace it. It is going to be a keeper this time.
Nothing to worry about, I need to live up to my username, that is only my second red jacket lol
And I prefer this darker richer red to be perfectly frank, that's what I have been aiming for.
Uploading the pics, give me a few minutes
I wish I could say I had this Lost Worlds Golden Oak Suede on the way, but I can’t. I’ve never owned LWs and Stu has always been someone for my own reasons I wanted to avoid. But these have been sitting on his page for literally years. I would periodically check in and see them, and ask myself if 1. I could pull that look off and 2. Should I spend my money there? Emailed him asking for measurements and he actually answered in like 20 mins saying all sold sorry. He really needs someone to update his site. We all know his site still looks like it’s from 1997, but these literally have been there in the same sizes for years, I doubt they all sold out just now when I was interested. Oh well.
I agree with the need to update his website, but he uses the seller name "grapemoby" on ebay and I've seen these jackets sell over the past few years
Oh I’m sure they did. I’m not doubting they sold. I’m cranky that I thought they were still available because of his never updated site. But in the end it’s for the best I was never sure I could pull it off which is half the reason they’ve been looked at on and off for like 3 years.
The longest Stuart has taken to respond to my emails is less than 60 minutes. Including Sundays. The shortest was my first email to him a few years back. Sent on Sunday afternoon, responded in minutes. Timely communication is definitely not an issue with him.
I just saw the photos you uploaded and yes that red is so gorgeous. I've never had any red outerwear but that might be a little bit that easier to pair outfits and wear.
That’s true, he usually responds within minutes in my experience. Short and to the point always.
Freewheelers Deerskin Journeyman size 40 in almost new condition expected to be delivery around end of next week:
Who ships a beautiful Thedi like this!? The seller must not love his jackets.
@Marc mndt More, please more pics
See 'what jacket are you wearing today'
I’ve been wanting something in a sashiko fabric for a while now, so I decided to go for this Taylor Stitch Long Haul version. I hope I get the size right.
Also, random perusal of the classifieds landed me this beauty that I have lusted over for a while now. I couldn’t pass it up and the sizing seems like it should work. Should be nice to own a Greg Field made jacket as a step before I order an actual Field Leathers custom.
After approximately two years without purchasing any leather jackets, I acquiesced to a long-standing desire for another black jacket with style components differentiating it from my Frobisher and Steinbeck. More to follow.
DHL is pretty quick, very curious to see that
You chose wisely! As always.
