Midnight Blue is beautiful!does anyone see or have pictures of collared or metro style Vansons in bright colors? I'm seriously considering ordering a more subdued (compared to a race jacket) like a portland or oxford in Ducati red or yellow (TB said this is doable) but I haven't seen a single image of anything that bold before. everything appears to be black, black, or brownish. the wildest seems to be the TB Bainbridge in abyss but thats still a darker hue and since I mostly wear jeans I'm not sure I can pull off blue leather AND blue denim.
colorful non race stuff?
Heavier weight (not quite CW and beautifully soft).White label predates Vanson's use of HH. It's cow and a beauty at that.
Best MC jacket I own. Fits like a 2nd skin and so comfortable on the bike. Open up the zip a little and it cools down, zip it right up and nice and warm. Vanson got this right.Finally got a Vanson coming my way. Been dreaming about one ever since joining TFL. You folks really do a good job advertising and praising it here
My understanding (from Horsey folk) is that Saddle soap is exactly that...Soap to get rid of the dirt and sweat from a saddle. What effect does it have on a new jacket?Best MC jacket I own.

Any new jacket purchase, whether it’s new or used, gets a good saddle soap treatment and balm of my choice which is often Dubbin. Done this to my jackets and boots for 50 years.
It waterproofs, moisturizes and softens. It’s just what I’ve been doing. I’m not saying it’s necessary or required on a new jacket, and for a brown leather jacket as an example, I use a different balm such as Cobblers Choice. Dubbin will make it shiny and darken the leather too, at least for a while.
