    He described it as blackened brown, all the pics are inside so hard for me to tell.

    I added some Walter Dyers because I just like them so much along with a sweet Cal. Big question: what is the deal with these Park V jackets I keep seeing? Leather looks heavy and made in USA. Under appreciated or junk?

    Bought this fringed British Cycle Leathers jacket this morning. Too small for me but Santa is going to put this one under the Christmas tree for my gf. Nicest fringed jacket I've ever seen. Fingers crossed it will fit.

    I don't know if Joan Jett ever wore a fringed leather jacket... but if she did, it woulda been the one you just bought...

    Seller lowered the price and I could not resist any longer. My wife will hate it, my kids ll say “way to rock it dad!”
    A little rough but it’ll clean up some.

    Well I did grow up in the 70’s. Guess my inner classic rock demons got the best of me.

    Fantastic jacket!

    Nah, since she was a Suzi Quatro knockoff. She'd probably copy something Suzi (or maybe Debbie Harry) wore.

    Oh, and as for why I came to this thread, I got a Ridley this week. Very interesting (and excellent) pattern.

    Is there any functional reason behind fringed leather jackets? I'm fine with "Its sweet so we did it" I'm just wondering if there was a historical reason.

    I've heard both to better shed rain and to swat away the swarms of flies that bothered cowboys as they rode alongside a herd of cattle.

    That looks good. Love that pattern. I wonder when they were built? Time for me to take out my wool beauty with the tan patches!

    I made out on this one. One of my favorite vintage jackets. Lots of bidders, and it didn’t really go anywhere. I was positive the price would blow right past me. Hoping for a wee bit more than the stated P2P though.

    Yep. I was waiting for the sniper to take me out. After the auction closed it took a while to reset on my phone. The entire time I’m looking at a blank screen expecting $600 or more to pop up lol. Pleasant surprise.
