    ELK jackets may be less expensive

    Will certainly do! I am curious about Elk, although it is very close to deerskin as far as I know

    Also this jacket is intriguing

    I've used full-grain elkskin work gloves for years (link). A bit thicker than any deerskin I can recall handling, but very soft/pliable and incredibly tough - you can string barbed wire in the things.

    Red, surely you must've forgotten what happened to that poor astrophysicist for wearing that totally sexist shirt while landing a probe on a freaking comet. Imagine the outrage that jacket'd cause!

    That said, 10/10, love it, would wear.

    I wish I knew how to paint like that... Who did you say makes that jacket?

    The jacket is made by Tenjin, the artist was likely commissioned separately. I would be wearing it now if I had it :D

    Wouldn't wear that either, though I suspect both would get me in equal trouble at home!

    Heh. Makes me think of Hendrix, and Crimean or Napoleonic era jackets, though I can see what you mean about the US marching band thing that retains uniforms inspired by those older, military ones.

    I assume it's some thing of this military vibe that isgonig on with the German leathers; that style is very typical of a lot of early German motorcycle jackets I've seen, the mix of buttoned DB along with the mandarin collar.

    Interesting. The front reminds me very much of the pre-RAF Royal Flying Corps tunic, referred to in the military as the "maternity tunic":

    (Buttons were covered here, though.) The back on that leather is much more interesting than on the RFC tunic!

    All I know is they taste different. Lol.

    Elk steaks taste better than deer to me. Elk sausage is darn good too.

    Yes, it is an early motorcycle jacket, exactly! :)
