I would have to agree that the Lost Worlds Leathertogs A and J-23 are two of my favorites of yours as well.

Are there any jackets that you just don't wear much if any, but are just happy to have in your collection? The Himel comes to mind, which is a shame...


There are many jackets i don't really wear, the Himel is no1 in that club, my Aero bootleggers are worn once or twice a year, i never wear my Schotts, really i usually wear LW or Vanson, to me the other ones are a collection and a way to compare jackets against each other.
I don't feel the need to sell a jacket just because i don't wear it often, as long as it has some cool feature that i appreciate. I enjoy them for their construction, their leather, their features, not necesserally wearing them.

But i am and have always been a collector, i have collected everything from stamps to rocks, coins to spanners, cards, bass guitars, you name it...

Haha, no need to justify the collecting habit as I have that same bone in my body. I mean, I live in the friggin Caribbean for god's sake and I own a collection of leather and cotton jackets meant to be worn in spring, fall, and winter outside of the tropics. But I love doing it all the same.

For me, it started with cards, comics, collectibles and gravitated to motorcycles and now menswear items and bonsai. I just like to collect things I find valuable to my personal tastes and hobbies.

Thank you for creating this thread Carlos. I just stumbled on it yesterday and it’s helpful to me I understanding pattern/fit/and measurements.
I’m still gun shy about my next build, but I’m hopeful it comes out the way I hope.

Hey @Carlos840, I'm trying to determine sizing in some of the jacket models you own. Any chance you could add your arm length from shoulder to wrist in your measurements?
