    I did see the top photo with reference to Langlitz on my internet travels. I am thinking Langlitz distributor in Japan too.

    I'm also inclined to believe these were made by Langlitz.

    Yes, that's the same listing that I found, with a Scarecrow and Langlitz label in the jacket. It's a Langlitz Timberline.

    The others, with Yah Ta Hey labels? I'm not so sure.

    Uh sorry no. That's a Lang Ritz. Not even remotely related.

    It's hilarious to me that the Google machine translation gets the L-R transposition error for some reason.

    Also, it tends to translate "horse hide" to "hose hide"... I can't understand why the translator would make such errors.

    It's due to the idiosyncrasies of the Japanese language :)

    Looking forward to it. The color looks very nice and it suits that model perfectly!

    These jackets that Mr. Guppy has unearthed are very, very, very Langlitz-like. Very.

    I really tend to agree. While Langlitz do a lot of custom work, I haven't seen them do anything with their name on it that looks like most of the YTH examples I found. Of all these, the YTH CHP-style is the closest to a known Langlitz design, and I'm able to notice several differences between it and a Langlitz Columbia... I cant say for sure that it's not, but absent official word from the maker or seller, I'm as confident as I can be that YTH are not Langlitz.

    I was caught less by the styling and more by the stitching and other nuances. Some of the materials and components used look like what Langlitz would use as well (but not uniquely by Langlitz though).

    I can't see the point in rebranding an already very established brand, especially Langlitz, with its own massive Japanese following...but if that's the case it's the penultimate in poseur...a special kind of ridiculous here to for unknown.

    If he can shed any light on this mystery, I'm in his debt. And if he has some Yah Ta Hey jackets to sell me, I'll be literally in his debt, too :)

    This looks like a truck of a jacket and the leather looks a lot like Vansons comp-weight-stuff. Has it ever been confirmed it's Langlitz who makes these?

    We've all seen double-labelled stuff before from Thurston/Aero (specifically, as I recall, on a design that Aero produced exclusively for Thurston); the double-labelled ones could have been from a run like that. It's also possible that there is a Japanese label copying Langlitz, in the same way as Adict and 666 do a take off of Lewis designs. Also possible they started off stocking Langlitz, then decided to do their own versions instead - c/f Aero and Sam Walker, or Leather Monkeys and Lewis. Interesting either way.

    Love this though it looks a lot like WD/Natal CR. The half gussets would be just about the only difference.
