    Just thought I would share my leather jacket collection so far... The weather was so nice today so I had a little photo session in my garden.

    1. Himel Brothers Wolverine
    2. Rainbow Country Sports Jacket
    3. The Flat Head Delraiser
    4. Fine Creek Leathers Eric
    5. Eastman Leather Clothing A-1

    Would love to hear your opinions. Which jacket should be the next, you think?

    None! You’re set. Epic selection.

    ps: ok, if you must, how about FW Brakeman? You “need” a car coat...

    CR or a Half-belt seem to be missing. Thedi.

    i think you have a pretty diverse collection already. Different patterns, different makers, different Leathers, different colors. You got pretty much all bases covered really so congratulations. Maybe a LW, FW, Thedi or a custom FL of would be cool to have.

    Some brands you are missing that are IMO worth exploring:

    Vanson
    Lost Worlds
    Lewis Leathers
    Langlitz
    Freewheelers

    Thanks! Would love to get my hands on a FW Mulholland in vintage black or maybe vintage brown. Thedi looks tempting too...

    Agreed on a mulholland, I hope you get to have a chance to acquire one. I recently got a brown one in my size and I'm hooked as I'm also searching for a black counterpart as well. Definitely Thedi is on my radar too, I'm in talks with them for a jacket as well.

    While we're at it... How is sizing for FW. Same for you as other brands/japanese brands or different?

    Go for it. Find a Buco! You'll see a whole different level of everything. They may look similar, even the same but old leather is SO much different than mostly anything new.

    TBH an Aero would seem a downgrade to your current collection, but perhaps a Indian Ranger or 30's Half-belt from them would be worth a look. Then again the Thedi's such as this one could be a really intersting jacket. https://www.thurston-bros.com/colle...-half-belt-size-xxl-hand-dyed-cocoa-buffalo-1

    Or maybe you are the one person on here who could pull off an ELMC Highwaystar. No-one has yet.

    Maybe even this Ostmann - https://www.historypreservation.com...-1945/german-luftwaffe-leather-flying-jacket/

    I see you have a grizzly so you are not afraid to have a jacket out of the box. Wonderful photography of them all, with a rarely seen blue sky in winter.

    Field Leathers J100 - before you know it, the wait time will be insane.

    Aero HWM or half belt in heavy steer CXL.

    Thedi Cossack

    freewheelers looks damn cool on @dudewuttheheck

    Suede trucker, maybe?

    How about a longer coat, since it looks like you get actual winter where you live?
