Exhibit A in the case against easy access to the shops.
Clear example indeed
While there is a certain “addict living next to the poppy field” aspect to it, I would love that access. Please let us know what you think. Looks amazing from thousands of miles away.
We are probably the only people buying leather jackets in the midst of a 30c/86F London summer!
Without loungers, how would honest makers make it through the long hard summer months?
Hope to be there mid-week or so, will keep you posted
Not only buying them, wearing them as well (on the motorbike). The heat is doing wonders in breaking them in
I've always said that the best way to break in a leather jacket is to sit in the sun sweating in it for a couple hours!
Leather absorbs moisture from the inside much better than from the outside, and few things create more moisture than wearing leather in summer...
This isn't too far off from the one @willyto has coming:
Damn. That's amazing. It is actually closer to the one from @dudewuttheheck with the pockets but yes, definitely!
That "strange thing" is very intriguing. Not one of their usual models.
It seem like some kind of hybrid design.
The collar is what I really love on this one, although it also has 3 side straps:
If they ever do a re-make of The Vampire Lestat, this should be the jacket.
And these mid 80's CPD's finest. All sporting the Ditka after the Bears superbowl win:
I have to get that CHP jacket some day. I just have to!
I hope someone's bidding on this! I'm pretty sure this is Connelly.
I actually have a Connolly Highwayman I'm about to list in the Classifieds in a size 46 (fits like a 44). Excellent condition and recently conditioned with Connolly hide food.
What happened to it..?? That 'wear' looks odd to me. Maybe it's just the way it was photographed...
Where did you score the Hide Food?
There's official Connolly Hide Care available in stores like Amazon. It shouldn't be difficult to find.
I got some for my vintage shoes a while ago to alternate with Bick4. For leather jackets I've been using Elephant Leather Preserver though with very good results, amazing in fact.
i can't believe that it got ZERO bids...
I may be wrong - I don't think this is Connelly but rather, Alaskan steerhide. Because I've seen one of those Alaskan steer jackets that had the exact same kind of wear. It's just honest, hard use, I guess. The jacket was probably worn on a motorcycle for decades, by the looks of it.
Although reading the reviews, there is some debate as to whether this is the original hide food, or a new formulation.
