it took a while for me to decide on my next MC jacket. I was hell bent on Aero J 106, or a DD J model. The best customer experience I've ever had was my Skookum Cascade through Scotty at Langlitz. It's also a jacket I've never regretted buying, and still love.So, I decided to go back for more. I don't wear much black at all, so it was always going to be brown. I love the goat on my Skookum, but they had one last peice of the Super Heavy brown cow (4.5-5oz) they don't offer it any more. So I put my deposit on and they set it aside for me. I wanted it a bit retro, but definitely functional, and something that would hopefully still look cool in 10 years. So, it's a cascade with heritage off white contrast stitch. I put elbow and shoulder pads in, the leather is too heavy to do a full padded back which was my initial intention. I joined the padding to yolk, which I think looks cleaner and pretty sharp. I added a pointier retro "togs" collar, and got the old school pocket stitch across the front. I got old school snap on stitching on snaps, and a hidden snap at base on jacket. I'm a sucker for detach fur collars, so I grabbed one too. I love brass, and It's a Langlitz signature, so I went with brass hardware, and a chunky Talon zip.one inside map pocket, no chest pocket. Pinstripes on back. I love it. The cow is gorgeous. The samples don't do it justice, same as my goat, it looked OK as sample, but stunning on jacket. This thing is lovely in the flesh, bits of grain, a beautiful sheen and smells awesome. I just love Langlitz gear, and could easily own 2-3 more. The guys are so incredibly easy to work with, great communication from Scotty, Benny and John. It's a pleasure handing over hard earned to these guys, and this, for me, is another jacket I will be hanging on to for many years to come. Zero buyers remorse. I bloody love it.
