I am willing to risk it but thanks for the tip.
Locally Perth western Australia made by Sinnika leather goathide "Eastman Luftwaffe exact copy"
Thinking about it is my only "bespoke" jacket , made to my request and requirements at the time in the late 90's.
Still gets dagged out for the occasional airing , having been an "every single day" jacket for many years.
It survived a motorcycle off scenario when a 75 year old catholic priest whacked my Harley Dyna from the left.
I skittled around the tarmac and scored the jacket quite badly. "Fixed" it with Kiwi kids scuff stuff shoe polish.
The priests insurance company "bought" me a new jacket (amongst other things !) after the event.
That was in 2012 when I was 53. This shot taken this morning on the beach at Mullaloo surf club. aged 61 !
Still there's glare. I've been to Bali last year but I do not recall whether locals wore sunglasses or not. I did (⌐■_■)
First ride out for my recently arrived vintage Fidelity café racer. On a run north with some other over 60's dudes.
I was doing some jacket research and found one of my youtube videos from December '19. Me and all of the jackets are over 50. Too hot to wear much of anything lately so here are a few from Cooler days.
50s Ralphs-Pugh Police Jacket, brown Horsehide, 50s Sears Hercules Horehide Motorcyle jacket, 40s Unlabeled Heavy Horsehide half-belt, Sears Oakbrook steerhide.
You could be Max von Sydow’s twin brother!
Saturday 1st August Harley ride. Shot taken on the Fremantle wharf/peir
Back left is me , 61. Across from me 74. Front row 80 on the left , 90 on the right.
And yes , wearing LEATHER haha....
52 yo. Better to burnout in leather than to fade away in polyester.
I like that sentiment. I also like the jacket, but the sentiment just about trumps it
Too hot for leather here, but here’s our mc clubhouse while WSBK race watching. And we're all so old we can barely remember 50!
Depends completely on the jacket in question. A well-fitted classic style in a colour that flatters you will trump any over-sized shiny suit or poorly cut blazer. If you go around looking as if your a refugee from a Ramones convention or a superannuated goth, then, yeah, that's not going to work.
No Ocean backdrop today folks, taken in my mate's Harley workshop. Bike is a '99 Springer ex United Arab Emirates..
Jacket is my Aero Blue label Highwayman in brown steer.
I occasionally do some work for this guy , he is 53.
He has a leather jacket ( or 10 !) haha...
NOT the same photo as "What jacket today".....
