I've got plenty to say about this one, so if you don't like reading -- Alan and Johnson Leathers have made me a very happy man. Go - Now - Pics vvv - Many. FOR THOSE WHO LIKE A STORY: It's been a journey. Not just in the process of designing/making the jacket, but also all the things that have led up to it. I have owned Bucos, Harleys, Japanese, American, British, German (only vintage) and even Soviet leather jackets. As many can attest, the hunt for the perfect jacket, or at least the perfect version of a style ('cause you gotta have multiple styles) has always proved to be a greater reward than the jacket itself. There would always be some issue with size, or leather, or "if only I could take the pocket from this one and match it with the back from that one" itch in the back of my mind. Realizing that, and having discovered Johnson Leathers (thanks to this forum), I sold the meat of my collection and started on what you're about to see. Enjoy! INSPIRATION: Lapels: X Wide - various vintage. Tweaked to perfection by Alan and Johnson leather. Was worried they'd be too floppy, but Alan made some minor mods and assured me the thick hide would add the muscle needed. Once again he was right. Long Zip: 50s Grais Modified elongated so I can fit gloves etc. no prob INSPIRATION: Arm Pockets: Saw a single vertical on some 80s dud, but it got the juices flowing. Modified by making 2 snap horizontal and adding zip. INSPIRATION: Back Fan: Vintage Peter's Leather (think 30s/40s) Modified for angle and layering. I couldn't really express exactly how I wanted it modified but Alan and Johnson leather used their magic touch and pulled the image from my brain and made it in leather. Cream Thread: Too many to list. But god do I love it.
