    So I got to thinkin . . . I often come across photos of cool jackets owned by others, and I struggle to find an appropriate thread to post the photos. Sometimes there is a brand specific thread, but other times there is not. Sometimes I am forced to start a thread for a particular jacket, solely to share the photo, even though the photo probably does not warrant a thread of its own. So, I figured its time that we have a depository for all the random photos we come across depicting cool jackets that we would like to share with our TFL brothers and sisters, so that we don't have countless individual threads for individual jacket photos. In other words, we should have a jacket porn thread (I elected to exercise a modicum of decorum and leave "porn" off the thread title).

    Here are a few random photos I came across today:

    Cool thread! Here are some that I must've liked enough to save. I'll start off with the cross zips.

    That's an LVC/Aero jacket. I see them (possibly the same one, being relisted endlessly) on eBay all the time. Can't say I like the painting on the back at all.

    It's based on an older 1950s Buco J-82 jacket (according to the Rin Tanaka book)

    This guy looks like someone from one of those Japanese psycho/futuristic films, a bit like an Oriental Metropolis ;)

    That thing is awesome!
    Like you it currently sits at the top of my most wanted list, but the price is just insane!
    Since i can't fit a standard size, a custom one would cost £2600 before shipping and customs, so around £3300 all in...
    I am all for paying ridiculous amounts for leather jackets, but that is just too much, whichever way i look at it.

    A fantastic look. The grain, the vest, the tie, the beard. Awesome.

    Clearly a stunning jacket, but does this strike anyone else as being a few inches too long? Hard to tell where the belt line of his pants rests, but I feel it would look significantly better a few inches shorter. Maybe I'm in the minority.

    The Buco J-100 which this is a repo of was always intended to be a longer jacket. The advertisement here says it can be worn tucked into your pants. Also check the illustration, the sleeves length is virtually the same as the body length....definitely a longer jacket by design.

    Thanks ProteinNerd. I just contacted the Buco company to order one of their jackets for $30.50. :p

    I'm hoping I look this cool in my Aero 1920s Work Coat which is a very similar style when the remake arrives!

    Ton's reference to the Langlitz Japan site reminded me that I had fallen in love with this jacket the first time I saw it there. I incorporated some of these original Columbia features into my new Langlitz, which according to UPS will be arriving tomorrow!!!!!
