I'll Lock Up
I just hit BIN on this weird Vanson, it was on Buyee, described as a Chopper/CHP mix from the 80s/90s.
I have never seen one like that before, i find it pretty weird and confusing...
It's a cross zip, but with barely any lapel overlap, almost like the Schott Cafecto, but with even shorter lapels.
Weirdly they left the four chest snaps for the lapels/collar as if it was a regular CHP.
There is also a snap on the inside, back of th eneck, wonder if it has a fur collar at some point or if it is a snap for a liner.
The sleeve zippers are also a style i don't remember seeing on a Vanson before.
Leather looks really nice, can't wait to see it for real.
Doesn any one know what this is? @JMax , @ton312 have you seen something similar before?
Never seen a Vanson like this. Reminds me of the 50s Langlitz Columbia with Cossack collar I had. How the collar is shaped and built looks a bit more ad hoc on the Vanson. I really like it. And the leather does look great.
