So, this should be interesting... I am always on the lookout for unusual things, and the old leather pull over racing shirt has been on my list for a while. Unfortunately, other than vintage Taubers that are super rare in my size, and Himel that are super expensive, there are very few companies making these. When i saw this Vanson i had to give it a go. It was made in 2001, from black chap leather. It is supposed to be thinner than comp weight, but this thing is thick! It is 2mm thick, super soft and spongy leather, i really like it. Most panels have large scars on them, which i think is very cool. It is half lined, meaning there is a lining hanging from the neck, that stops halfway down the chest. The arms are lined too. The sleeves are non gusseted. There is a cool wind flap that you can either fold in so that it lays flat on the chest inside the shirt, or when in use you can snap it to one of the two snap buttons. Wind flap: The fit is very nice too, it is very comfortable, with a classic Vanson easy range of motion, nothing bad to say there. Now, here comes the interesting part... My girlfriend, in her infinite snark tells me this is the "Worst thing i have ever bought" (the grizzly has been demoted!) According to her, this makes me look like i am about to star in a hardcore gay porn version of Robin Hood ( She hesitates between calling it "The adventures of throbbin' Robin" or "Rubbin' wood, Prince of C*ck"). On one hand i can see where she is coming from, with the right leather chaps and cap this could really be a part of a decent BLUF outfit. On the other hand so could a lot of other jackets we see worn here everyday! So, what say you TFL? Is this a Friday night at the Blue Oyster kinda shirt? Or is it a racing shirt?
