    That LW Trojan is sick. I was thinking the Thedi denim/goat but now this. Christ, this forum is going to ruin me.

    Aero have cream or white Vicenza, so they could do something similar.

    Otherwise, I've seen Real McCoy's jackets in a two tone. But the only one I can recall was a Buco J100 with the zip welts in white.

    Vanson could build one too. I have seen the Highwayman with red accents similar to the one above.

    Himel makes black/white two-tones, and can do so in any configuration:

    You already have one answer with LW, if you like that Trojan, they will make it for you.

    Otherwise, pretty much all makers we know here should be able to do it I believe. Just need to check if they have white / cream leather at the moment you order

    That's a Langlitz, right? That pretty much answers your question. :)

    Yeah, it's either a Langlitz Columbia or a very bold copy.. Langlitz does two-tone jackets, they even have a picture of an amazing looking black and white Cascade on their website. Btw, if you go Langlitz and have to pick between Columbia and Cascade, go for the Cascade, I like mine much better than my Columbia.

    I went to Lewis Leathers the other day and they have a very cool two tone black/white grizzly jacket.
    I very much want one...

    If you think you have the courage, there's only one thing to do that makes sense.

    I'm also very intrigued by that strange thing on the right!

    Insane jacket, awesome. I almost pity you guys with easier access to the brick and mortar shops of the greats or their distributors. The temptation would be too much for me.

    Well, the deal is if i want to wear it i need to find a new girlfriend... So not great!
    I might be able to turn this into a "If you hate it that much how about i just get a regular Grizzly instead of a two tone one, just for you!"

    That "strange thing" is pretty cool too.

    Brick and mortar stores with good leather jackets is something I honestly am happy to have no access too. Not only would I probably become something of a joke among the store staff for constantly being there - and that's at best - but I'd end up living on the street.

    Lol I was there... Well, maybe she would change her mind if she saw you wearing one? That happens. Sure...

    D Lewis Warmwear, from the Lewis Leathers Facebook page. (I was trying to find details on the strange black jacket, above.)

    D Lewis Warmwear Front.jpg D Lewis Warmwear Rear.jpg D Lewis Warmwear Worn.jpg

    There's a bit of information about it.

    The jacket below was bought second hand in 1938 from Eric Thompson, future secretary of the VMCC, it was then sold to its third owner who used it for racing Brough Superior SS100’s and was finally hung up after an injury and there it remained until last week. We were fortunate to be contacted by its third owner and now the jacket takes pride of place tim the Lewis Leathers archive. Made of horsehide it is a very nicely tailored jacket known as the Warmwear.
