    The grain on this old Model E was awesome. I sold this a while back. Another genius move.

    Those Cals are gorgeous. I just picked up my 3rd. This last is the most banged up (loose stitches, torn liner, halfway frayed male zip) but the leather is the best of the 3 I got. I wonder if the harder life of the jacket is contributing to more characteristics, ie. more wear = more beauty :) That plus I think this one is horse based on the more "stretch marky" patterns, but who knows. On the fence whether to keep it as a true vintage jacket (my others could pass for new). I may bring it to Cal at some point and have them tidy up the stitches and see about the zipper. Considering I might get $300 for this, I think I may just keep as a wtf. Just hate seeing these beauties hanging in the closet all the time, but also realize as time goes by, these are going to be harder and harder to find.

    SB Shinki. Thick. Looks like the vintage HH on some of my jackets.

    Hand Stitched Cordovan Front Quarter Horsehide Rucksack I recently made. Not a jacket, but I thought you all might like the graining. It’s really supple ✌️ 8AD67A15-7D6C-49FF-B79A-5125246A4988.jpeg 0D56532F-BE90-41D5-8DE8-4FBAE0F8D32D.jpeg AE4EFE77-3EE5-4BF0-BD75-5F204A5E2834.jpeg

    Nice work there! Should offer these for sale!

    I know it's not a Jacket - but it still is very worthy of display here...

    Love that! Been looking for something like that for years. All I need is room for the laptop.
    Then again, crowded subways haven't been as big a problem lately.
