    I'm pretty sure most of us own a copy of Rin Tanaka's motorcycle jackets 'a century of leather design' book. Looking for other good books about vintage leather jackets I came across a Japanese magazine called 'lighting archives'. In 2014 they issued a leather jacket edition. It's a great book which contains far more pictures of vintage leather jackets than Rin Tanaka's book. Only downside is that its only available in Japanese language. Luckily for us there's hardly any text :) One can still order a brandnew copy, straight from Japan:

    Higher def photos. A few jackets added or replaced. For example, the revised page 9 is a Topline HH sports jacket owned by Mr Himel and page 15 is a Leathertog not featured in the earlier edition.
    Incidentally, Lightning issued revised editions of a few of their archives this year if you check the Clutch site. I bought the Leather jacket, the Military jacket and the Denim revised edition. I have the old Leather and Military.
