    lol ButteMT! I doubt anyone's going to be overly enthusiastic to post their collections after seeing the OP's photos.

    Builderjon, that's crazy impressive and amazing! I perhaps wouldn't know what to do with this many jackets, but if I had a collection of jackets, it'd be very much like this. :D

    Here's a photo of all I've got left; my utterly unimpressive collection of the two Vansons; Model A and B: [​IMG]
    Coincidentally, of all the jackets that I've had, it's these two that I've been most happy with, so far at least, so much that I don't plan on acquiring any more for the simple reason that I doubt I'd wear 'em. Well, there's Schott 641XX that I definitely plan on getting some day but right now, I'm happy as can be.

    Jon, would you mind sharing a few more photos of the Beck CR?

    At my peak, I think I had eight of such things. Now, I'm down to four and a few other non-leather bits. I'm happier for it. Not knocking the big collection at all, just found it was not "me" and I really enjoy having a smaller number that I really enjoy.
    Maybe that would change if I won the Lotto, but I think I'm happy being a little less weighted down.

    I've been curious about leather jacket collectors/collections. I don't want to feel alone.

    there are a lot of players out there. my pile is huge, varied, old/new, favorites, high end/low end and a lot in between. I need to group them up. It's really quite crazy.

    I own probably 100 leather jackets. Sounds like a lot, there are probably collectors out there with triple that in rare motorcycle jackets. I don't know them, don't know where they hang out. I buy what I like and sometimes buy what other people like. Try to stay in wearable size, prefer black and short. I've been buying for two years and have sold quite a few jackets. I've traded in vintage guitars for years, acoustic exclusively. I specialize in vintage Gibson acoustic, so if any interest in those send me a message. I don't know if there is much guitar talk on this forum.

    I do plan to group my collection and photograph. By brands, Hercules/Sears, Windward, Sportclad, etc. There are some nice jackets in the mix, a little for everyone to enjoy. I like to see pictures of other collections. Seen many jackets here I have not seen or would like to own. I hope the folks with the nice Japanese pieces will post them. I've become quite attracted to them.
