    Think is still the people behind Fine Creek making these. The slim and elongated silhouette is the same.

    Gorgeous leather, but something always bugs me when the side-adjusters are off-line from the half-belt.

  3. Me too. Just looks off balance...or out of proportion.

    My perforated Vanson is awesome. Still heavy comp. weight and the perforations really work. I recommend a perforated riding jacket where you ride.

    I do have a perforated Vanson Comet café racer , just got to pick the right day to wear it.
    Freeway runs first thing in the morning it can be "too cool".
    Whereas some of my other jackets can be an ordeal on the way home if goes over 35C. Decisions decisions...

    I thought we had a place for vintage photos of jackets, but I can't find it. Here's one from a group
    I'm in on Facebook that just has to be shared here. This is the caption:

    "Leslie Van Denmark had the distinction of driving the first motorcycle across the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge 1936" lesVanDen.jpg

    The cowhide was tanned using food industry by-product.

    This is a pretty cool idea. And it doesn’t look like color, or depth of color takes a hit at all.

    That apple green PHWM is fun, wonder how that will wear with age. Hope it goes darker with wear like how a natural leather would

    It would be amazing if it got darker with age, but it’s also great as-is! Just look at the above Bates, if I had the right hair color and skin tone, I’d be all over it!
