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

    I've actually had the exact same conversation several times with my friends. From how the jacket changed my life to them trying to guess the price.

    That is my experience as well. I see each new jacket as something special and unique (at least for a couple weeks until I find the next one), whereas my friends only see dollar signs...

    Well, the order is finally in for my Aero Sheene. I've ordered the Dark Seal Vicenza but part of me still thinks Seal may be the way to go. This one has been a long time coming...probably should have been my second jacket but others would always pop up just as I was about to order and distract me. Hopefully it looks as good on me as they do on @Fanch @dan_t and @mowgli222

    Has anyone received a Dark Seal jacket recently? The newer Dark Seal Vicenza does look more brown in pictures than the old batch that was virtually black. I don't mind a dark brown but definitely want it to look brown.

    I have nothing in the making and nothing I luster about. Except for seeing all your crazy cool jackets coming!

    And Super, you should wear your beautiful leather jackets all the time, so everyone can see them. I mean seriously, those are meant to be worn and to be seen by the public and by us, of course. I would love to see the evolution of your jackets with your already perfect fit. They’ll look super awesome with some moulding and wear, I promise you!

    And red devil, it’s not a problem for a well-made leather jacket to be put in a overhead compartment. My J-21 travelled with me on some flights already, no problem.

    Come on boys, these are leather jackets and they’re made to be worn. So wear them, please!

    One incoming from Ebay, a Kehoe cafe racer. If it fits, it will be my spring riding jacket:

    I was being too cautious, a reminder of the times I used to wear fashion leather jackets, I know I have a dirty past :D
    That being said, I can say that I wear a leather jacket every day as long as it's not too hot!

    Crappy images but here is the new arrival. 3oz naked goatskin M-200 with a few mods here and there. It's going to be close to 80 degrees here the next couple of days so I guess I'll just stare at it in my closet.

    Which is exactly why I stopped buying for a while. Then, lack of spare cash helped me fulfill this stupid goal ;)

    A jacket with a "real" collar?

    LOL! That's like superman without his cape. Bizarro Monitor.
    I'm not one to talk. I'll soon be looking at four of arguably the exact same jacket. It's a sickness...at this point I just embrace it. Let the freak flag fly.

    I've tried that once and I'm still having nightmares...

    Exactly! Plus, there are so many kinds of mandarin collar, they're not all the same. Totally justify getting different jackets.

    But TBH, I'd love to have a jacket with the gigantic 70's collar.

    A jacket that can not alternatively be used for protection during a medieval sword fight. :p

    Funny thing is that most of the vintage leather jackets I've handled were a lot lighter, soft and comfortable than modern ones and they can handle everything while most modern ones are as thick as armor or boot leather and people are afraid to wear them to death.

    Love those vintage Kehoes! I've found that the steerhide on Kehoes takes on some of the most supple, softest patina. Enjoy!
