    What do you all have planned for leather jacket purchases in 2019?

    Lets see your plans or lists for leather jacket purchases and what you all have cooking up in your heads. Buying, thinning the herd, whatever.

    For me, not much will happen for 2019. I sold off my older, ill-fitting leather in the fall of 2018 so I have ordered everything I need to replace what was sold. I have 4 leather jackets showing up in the next couple of months so I'll be neck deep in leather, trying to break in 4 jackets so I will be busy.

    I am thinking of a button front leather jacket next along the lines of an Aero Premiere 20's work coat or Himel Canuck but common sense will prevail and I won't allow myself to spend that kind of cash on the Canuck. This will be a late 2019 early 2020 purchase.

    2019 will be focused on getting a few pairs of custom boots made and that is it.

    Tell us all what you have coming or planned for 2019.

    Well I'm new to the collecting part ... always loved nice leather in boots or jackets

    Just picked up some Frye shearling lined engineer boots so for 2019 I'm looking for someting for the summer .. maybe Wesco or similar

    Jacket wise I picked up an as new Vanson Enfield 6 months ago and am after a shearling ANJ4 / B6 or similar or ideally a shearling lined leather for 2019 ...

    Those are the definites ... any other purchases will be classed as bonus buys :)

    I am aiming to sell my cordovan LHB and the Simmons Bilt; I am thinking about ordering a Teamster in the brown-near-black, waxy Steerhide that I once owned a used Aero in (it might be the antique/tumbled cxfqhh colour on the website, dunno for sure), but that might necessitate selling the Stockman as well. It's my ambition to only own three or four of the damn things by August- a) I'm likely back off to Asia and the weather isn't really requiring of an Aero for most of the year (unless I pick places that have proper winters), b) I feel pretty stupid owning jackets that I rarely wear and c) I don't have the storage space... I'm hoping that I can get a Teamster made to about the same length as an LHB, which would make it an all-weather thing. We'll see...

    I'm primarily waiting for an Iron Heart jacket that's going to be released very soon that I'm interested in. I also need a new pair of boots, I guess. Engineer boots, what else, even tho I've had crap luck with them. They're still the nicest footwear in existence so what can I do...
    Other than that, this year I'm hoping to buy an Aero Type-3 in CXL, also blanket lined and my quest for an ultimate cross zip isn't over. If only someone'd made one in sheepskin but with cow or hh overlays for added protection. That'd be something.

  6. I've got a Bill Kelso Star 18245 A-2 on order (liberty dark seal with rust knits) which I'm hoping will arrive in time for my birthday next April....

    That's it for the moment. But it is only Jan 7th so that could well change....
  7. I'm with Tony. Got an email this morning that my Thedi # MTC-127916 in antiqued tan buffalo has arrived at Thurston Bros. Should get to my Indiana door in about a week I guess. Then I'm DONE..!! Tony and I will then have therapy sessions by private message to talk each other down if the demon cross zip/button leather custom jacket urge ever surfaces again.

    None. I've also stopped wearing leather and denim. Nice to have a change.

    Deal. I’ll call you on that but I also have to apply a soft edit to my post. If TM ever wants to move that Shawl collared Buzz...I can’t refuse.

    No more jackets.

    I'm in line for a pair of brown Road Champ engineer boots. I was told 6 months ago that it might be "a while" before they could source the leather.

    Also, waiting for the green Aero paratrooper turtleneck sweater to be restocked. Should be restocked by the end of January.

    Looking for a good J-100 or similar CR. I'm considering a Diamond Clothing J-100 now, but boys, leather jacket is becoming an expensive hobby :)

    I have really been jonesing for a chp style jacket with a straight zip, as offered by Aero and Lost Worlds. I have seen some truly beautiful vintage examples from Cal Leathers and I am toying with the idea of reaching out to them to make a new one for me. I have resisted the urge to do this since June of last year, I’m not sure how much longer I can hold on...

    Leaning towards a Aero Maxwell or Teamster, time will tell.

    Trying to convince Freewheelers to make me a custom Caboose. I also might order a canvas (no leather) jacket from Thedi. Otherwise, nothing currently planned.
