    So, teach me. Are they blurry? Bad lighting? Should I take them outside in daylight? Get a selfie stick? The mirror thing not working? I have an iPhone for pictures. When I look at them, they open a bit blurred, then self correct and clear up after a second. Closer up shots? More of the jacket without trying to do fit pics?
    I'm still learning.

    Thanks

    @jonesy86 They're a bit blurry, is all. Can't see them texture and stuff. :) Everything else is fine.

    And I just bought two more. Both en route. One is a pure motorcycle jacket, the other a 8lbs tank that you can't even crumple.

    Main attraction of my leather jean jacket collection was supposed to be this one but it's way too small... Bah! Hunt for one in my size begins.

    I've got this one made by Redskins (FR) it's an early model, 80's era.
    I might sell it if someone's interested. It's a size 44.

    Looks very nice. How long are the sleeves?

    I use leather dye, wax and shoe polish mixed together.

    just rub it in with a cloth? I saw someone on you tube use a hair dryer to get it to set in. Ever heard of that?

    As expected, the riveted buttons on these jackets are useless. I've already lost three! Really glad that Aero I got has snaps. I would've probably made a mistake and order one with buttons otherwise...

    Yep, it does help with the wax. I use it too but it's not really essential. I mean, I'm probably doing it all wrong but the two jackets I dyed turned out great. Can't even get any of the dye to rub off... I use a cloth, yeah and mostly my fingers, though.

    Saw this on the bay. I have heard that Schott is generally pretty good quality. Sleeves too short for me. And i am very happy with the 1970s Big E Levi's Suede Trucker I picked up recently from a very good fellow TFL veteran.. Thought I would throw it out there.
