    You still can't knock the quality of their jackets in my opinion.

    My 2 most recent arrivals are Simmons Bilt. I am delighted with both , both being in black goat.

    The J100 in the photo earlier today and the Nebraska from 5 or 6 weeks ago.

    I appreciate the "history" but it is time to move on. I had no qualms in buying them , and less wearing them.

    Well broken-in Aero Long Half Belt in brown FQHH and brown Red Wing Chelsea boots are some of my favorites in the cold season of the year!

    Nice one. Have never seen that pattern before. What hide did they use for this jacket?

    50s Excelled HH, same HH as the Schott type you like, thicker.

    Vintage Cal Leathers jacket. Not sure how old it is. Also not sure if it's horse or steer?

    The size "40L" is handwritten inside the interior pocket. The hem hits right at my belt in these photos. Got a short-sleeve tee underneath.

    I have very nearly this same jacket, from a member on this forum as well. It's a mid-50's vintage if there are indeed no labels inside. Your lining looks identical. It's super-heavy Horse Hide in my case, and strangely enough still smells quite a bit like a new horse Hide jacket. I should get it back out and wear it a little more often, just such a rare & timelss piece. Looks great on you.

    A visit to the Schott store, and I had to try this on for the umpteenth time, a P665. I've tried it on so many times my girlfriend says "your jacket is over here". Such a great jacket! The hide is in a different class of the rest. I touched nearly every other jacket there and the difference really was a mile.

    Many thanks. There are no inner labels. But is that a 1950s Talon zip? Sleeves are Servall. The jacket weighs 6 pounds. And it does maintain a leather scent. Been wearing it around the house all day :)

    ^^ I'll take a look at mine, I believe those zips are the same. Mine is around a 44 and probaly weighs around 7 lbs or so.
