Here are my two favourites:

Both I didn't like when I first got them, but now they're the ones getting the most wear!!

Barbour International: hated it when it was new because of the waxiness/stickiness of the material. Now I would consider it to be the most practical jacket I own :)

The 2nd jacket is the ELC A-1: I returned it the first time because I thought it was too thin & flimsy. Had a second thought, then bought it again. I consider this the best ELC jacket I've owned to date :)

Great looking jackets! I just love to see well used Barbour jackets. Also...now I am even more convinced that I made a good choice to buy the ELC A-1 jacket, looking at yours...

Any chance of some pictures of you wearing this nicholasb?

My ultimate favorite has to be my new one from Superior Flight Apparel. Looks and feels good. Not sure I could get it again as it was a test jacket but I would buy from Mark again. Hope to see some more on here soon.

I've been talking to Mark about him making one of these for me so I'm desperate for any more details.

Hi deluxestyling, I will take some pics. It really is my favorite jacket. I love those pockets. It would be good to see some more 'Superiors' here. If there's anything you want to know, I'll try and help.

I love them all! There are days when nothing can beat my plain old M65 and others when it has to be the dufflecoat. And even between the leathers there is none that's truly better or preferred over the rest. So I let my wife be the judge and she chooses this one every time:

Aero Cafe Racer FQHH with two breast pockets, plain back. Looks a lot different now after two years.

could you please show pics from the back. I have never seen a plain back CR and I am thinking about it for my next one.

If its not too much trouble, could you take one from the back and one from diagonal back.

This is my favorite jacket. It belonged to my great uncle who wore it as a fighter pilot in WWII and Korea, eschewing any jackets issued to him. I acquired it from him probably 25 years ago. I wore it nearly every cool day and took it with me on numerous adventures over the years until about 5 years ago, when I got too fat to wear it. But, I lost all the weight last year and wore it all fall and this winter. As you can see it is not w/o its age showing. the liner is finally falling apart. One of the pockets has a huge hole in it. The sleeves have had their stitching fixed in numerous places over the years as it came apart from one violent movement or other. The leather remains in good condition, mainly due to my near obsession in keeping it conditioned. I love this jacket, despite and probably because of its flaws. It is made of horsehide.
