    This past summer, I inquired as to what leather jacket brands Loungers had in their closets and used a points scheme to determine the most prominent. The results are further below.

    I thought it might be interesting to look at things a different way and ask which jacket brands you have acquired thus far in 2021 and how many of each. So, please chime in if you are willing to publicly divulge such information.:):cool: We are all family here, so we won't share outside the Forum...since there might be one or two of you have have actually purchased...gulp...more than one leather jacket this year.:rolleyes: Let's have fun!

    I'll keep track of the numbers and periodically report. I'm interested to see if the results mirror those of the last survey. Although Aero might have been on top in that survey, it does not necessarily mean that is what people are pursuing this year.


    Top 10 Points Leaders
    1. Aero-69
    2. Vanson-38
    3. Schott-33
    4. Lost Worlds-17
    5(tie). Thedi and Cal Leathers-16
    7(tie). Eastman/ELMC and Real McCoy’s-13
    9(tie). Goodwear and Brooks-10

    The next 6
    Field Leathers, Freewheelers and Himel-7
    Buco, JL and Levi’s -6

    I don't think @tmitchell59 took part. Otherwise Sears would be #1 :)

    That’s easy, with the five GW jackets I have in my collection and the fifty that Jonesy has strategically stashed around the world, we skewed the odds!

    I don’t have any specific brand in mind per se. I do hope I can work out a Halfbelt with Vanson. Beyond that, I have one SJC for sure, and likely a number of obscure brands nobody cares about.
    Edit: brands owned and will wear
    Vanson:2 (maybe 3)
    California Sportswear:1
    Windward:1
    Monarch:1
    ELMC:1
    Westbury:1
    5 Star:1

    wool/denim:
    SJC:2
    Bravestar:2

    Thank you! Yours looks great too - I do like Thedi especially, but have not yet stumbled onto one in my size for the right price. I'll try to be patient...lol!

    Yeah, I ordered the Thedi and nearly forgot about it. Nearly six months later and a work of art arrives in the mail.

    Yes and no. That was around the time that I had to start explaining to my wife why I need an entire closet for jackets….

    That is a good haul for your first year here, You’re going to be one of the old hands in no time at all!
    I think I was going at that pace myself for my first couple years of the jacket quest. After that I slowed down a bit. This year I’ve only bought one leather jacket, the IH x SB natural horsehide collaboration. I’m kind of stunned as I sit here and read what I just wrote, only one leather jacket in a whole year! I better do something about that…
