    SB offers their B-3 Jackets in 25mm and 15mm. I would say in my jacket a B-6 was used a 15mm sheepskin.

    The Tale of Two California Sportswear jackets, around the same time frame 50s, identical California Chrome Tanned Steerhide labels. No idea the significance of such a statement

    This size 40 is unworn. I believe it is a factory second, very obvious stiching issues and mis-labeled. This jacket actually fits on me like a size 46+

    The Well worn is just that I suppose.

    My Johnson Leathers M-200 in Brown Naked Cowhide. The jacket has a particular grainy patina in the elbows and throughout. I’ve been caught riding in many rainstorms on my way back from the Beach through the Pine Barrens Forests of New Jersey.
