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

    Dude, how have you not been interviewed by some niche Japanese fashion mag yet?! They would freak out over your collection.

    thanks for the correction, not sure why I put New Berlin. I have seen jackets from the mid-1930s made by Mid-Western. Back then they used hides other than deer. WB Place, Hartford Wi also used other leathers back in the day. Those early jackets are hard to find.

    I have one of these. Mine did appear to have distressing but I thought it had been added by a bored leather jacket owner (who knew there might be such a thing?). Anyway, this is now my cycling jacket, I don't really go cycling, but if I did this is the jacket I would wear. I washed out a lot of the top dye/finish using Carlos840's patented technique, it took several runs and the stitching disintegrated around the collar so take care with such folly.

    The freakiest collection of Vintage outerwear is undoubtable in Japan. That is where that Hercules wool came from. I'm just bringing a few back.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I will be careful with it. I don't mind a lived-in look, so I'll try to keep it relatively untouched unless it's just hideously dirty. I like the idea of having a different color in the rotation, a change-up from the basic black.

    I did see that Lesco made both mens and womens versions of this jacket. Would love to see yours if you get a chance!

    I love this sort of thing, nice switch up from leather sometimes. I have one of the '33' jackets that SJC did a wile back, like this:

    Great jacket. I should suggest to Simon he tweaks these with a lancer front, that would be very cool. I think he's looking at doing a new run with some leather panelling next year.

    Wow, clean lines! What is the maker? I can't quite read the label.

    I have waited for Ironheart to restock this jacket for 2 years. They finally did and I jumped on it without hesitation. I had one from SE but it was too long. The numbers on this one in my size are just right. 19oz 526 LOD

    Highlighting the work of Greg at FL making this killer custom piece made of full aniline black shinki w/ Nickle hardware for me (FW caboose inspired front/RMC disfarmer inspired back/zipper closure gauntlet sleeves). Should be delivered later next week.

    This jacket is a work of art, and I’m excited for you to get it and see how it works out! The olive contrast stitching was a good call and great overall design

    Thank you, I am buzzing too as this is just done expertly by a Master craftsman! For me Greg is already up there with superior makers, I'm blessed he was happy to take this project on. I'm sure it will fit perfectly, this is my 2nd jacket with him and we had a mock up jacket done before the final pattern was done.

    Thank you! I can't help but feel the same way looking at it but I'm sure it will Be even more special in real life

    This Lewis Leathers Phantom is on its way to me from Spain. It's a vintage one from the seventies but it looks to be in perfect condition (apart from a missing collar snap but that's easy to replace). I'm not a huge fan of padded biker jackets but I couldn't resist this one. Plus I feel the need to handle a Lewis Leathers, experience what it's about :)
