    Don't know. Probably way too much.

    Back in the 80s there was a place similar in Melrose Blvd. I used to go there to see cool jackets. The average price was over 1k. Most likely all were found for cheap. This was also the story of a famous furniture store called Arte de Mexico. Low price items sold for a bundle to the willing buyer.

    That might have been Leathers & Treasures. Back in the late 80s that place was so cool! I mean they had the walls covered in Perfectos painted and studded. If you saw a great jacket at a club, it was purchased (or copied) from there.

    Based on the shape and size of the worn out tag and the fact that they have a lot of other HDs around, I'd say it's probably an HD (it also has an HD patch which obviously identifies it as HD ;) Maybe on of these below or an earlier version of this jacket.

    These were made by Brooks if I'm not mistaken.

    Going to be impossible to confirm, but it definitely doesn't look like a Brooks. Brooks never had a label with that shape and size. I've also never seen a cross zip of theirs that had snaps on the inside for a collar and the zippers and chest pocket placement are all wrong for a Brooks. To me it looks like the second HD jacket I posted, but very possible that I'm wrong.

    No, you're definitely right about the label that's on the jacket, no doub it's a Harley Davidson (and later AMF) cross zip but I'm just saying that I think that Brooks used to produce these for HD. :)

    Oh Ok, I misunderstood. That’s very interesting if that’s correct.

    I like that top pocket. One thing I have halfway in mind in future is a button-front, hip-length leather with a non-zip breast pocket like that, easy place to slip gloves, a pipe, a bandana...

    I noticed that sort of sizing discrepancy recently in the Dickies Eisenhower work jackets (not leather, of course). Works for me in my size, but there's a big size-band between each size. I guess that comes from them having originally been designed as workwear - function over form, an aw tha'.

    Nice. I'm still working on losing weight, but I've got my eye on some leather vests with decent pockets as a jacket alternative, all being well with Summer 2022 (particularly my long-haul travel season, which fingers crossed will be back in play by next April) in mind.

    I fear for my future on that score. I've alredy hadmy once-in-a-lifetime with the blessed, late Marlene Marlowe, who was so sweet-natured she ate her tablet out of my hand for those last eight months. Her sister, now 13 and still going strong is a right little madam I fear the idea of ever having to medicate. The vet has one of those high-power syringe pump things when she goes for her shots and her once a year tablet: the look of pure anger on her face when she realises that, yet again, she's been thwarted and the tablet is safely in her gut....

    A friend once had a cat who learned how to actually vomit his meds back up, intact...
     
  12. Well his sleeves do look silly short for sure....

    Jeff Goldblum is one of the coolest dudes ever to grace the Earth. He can wear whatever length sleeves he wants and won’t change anything. The dude rocks.

    my oldest cat was short of 20 when he died, I still think it was negligent by the vet's assistants.
    my remaining cat is also around 15yo now, she is still healthy but with sinus problem, another vet told me to temporarily make her living in enclosed space like a cage with blanket to ease the sinus, so I bought a cage put blanket over it to look like a cave, and I don't need to force it, the cat enjoy living in her bed room with the door open. I have capsule plunger tool that look like syringe, but I have 50% success rate with it, so I just break open capsule or pressed tablet into powder and mix it with canned food.

    That´s it! I was looking at the photo and thought, thats probably what @marcmndt will look like in 30-40 years time. Short sleeves and all.
    Truth is: if you have a basic sense of what suits you and wear your stuff proudly and with utter confidence, you will always look good. Bespoke suit or ill-fitting cross-zip: makes zero difference as long as you own the look.

    Been watching a lot of iZombie recently. Rose McIver as Liv More has a fair few pretty cool looking leather jackets. I'm sure all "fashion" stuff, but nonetheless some nice design touches. I rather like this one:

    Shade changes with lighting, obvs, but mostly it looks like the slightly more muted, petroley blue in the second shot here. The colour is very late-70s-Lewis. The cut, especially those distinctive lapels with the mandarin collar, rings a bell, but I can't place it to a brand in my head. [This will be a new jacket, but it has echoes of something older's styling.]


    Crafty buggers, cats - not always easy to trick them. The dog is an angel by comparison!

    Wrong! That´s the typical "Aero-crease". It comes from the jacket hanging on the neck instead of the shoulders, a wrongful neck-hole, cimate change and the fact that Greg´s wait-list is now 12 months...

    Sorry, guys, absolutely no offense intended. Just couldn´t resist...

    LOL. Plus the rotation of the sleeves is all wrong. Not to mention their length.
