Highwayman with Toys Mccoy cap
Vanson vest. Too hot for a jacket, any jacket.
Nick, that's the best fitting one you got so far. Hound steals the show, tho. Sorry.
It's too hot for this, too. I tried wearing my LW vest yesterday. Exact same effect as when wearing a backpack. There go all my dreams of finding a way to wear leather during summer.
Crazy hot. No motorcycle=no leather. Another reason to love riding.
Usually my jacket photos are always in a sunny period , which is 'the norm" here.
It is NOT always sunny in southern California ( or in this case Perth WA !)
Some well wintry squalls indeed and max 16C, (noticeably less during the squalls !)
My swimming pool is full and overflowing ( first world problem I know !)
Eastman Luftwaffe taking the strain today.
Art Fawcett hat, Ooe Yofukuten jacket, Stevenson Overall henley, CSF jeans, Nicks boots
That Ooe jacket is really cool. Works great with just jeans. Man, I wish I could wear any kind of hat... Just too chicken to do it.
I don’t know how you guys do it.
Only the thought of wearing denim, a jacket or boots in the heat makes me sweat.
I’ve been wearing linen, cotton, seersucker and cellular cotton for a couple months now and I melt. We are reaching close to 30 celsius on a daily basis and only the summer sack coats I have and the vintage jackets are a choice apart from short sleeve obviously.
Thanks very much!
Thanks! I think it's my best fitting jacket. I know that's blasphemous given my leather jackets, but I really think it is. You definitely can. You just have to jump in and believe that you will look good in one... and then you will. I just loved hats so I never even thought about whether I would look good in one or not. I just assumed I would. Not because I think I look good, but because I just loved hats and a hat not looking good never crossed my mind.
It depends on the day. Where I am rarely even hits 90F. It is also very dry here so I can wear cotton jackets in 80F weather easily. This jacket was worn when it was in the mid-upper 70s. Today I wore a t shirt, jeans, hat, and boots and no jacket in 82F weather.
That's more to do with bad patterns than it is with the heaviness of the leather.
I barely wear my Aeros, cause like you i find them uncomfortable, but i am currently living in my LW jackets, they are thicker, heavier than CXL, but they have well desinged patterns and are comfortable to wear.
IMO Aeros look good on a coathanger but they feel pretty bad on the back.
You have stuff to wear 'em with, the kind of gear that doesn't make the hat stand out & it all looks balanced and cool. And the fedora works for you. I really like mariner's cap a lot but I just feel it'd look silly on me. I just can't jump in like that...
LW is a very heavy jacket but I too can practically exist in it. And I would have if the summer didn't hit full force. 35C outside so leather jackets are all kicked back into the wardrobe.
My dreams and wishes of wearing a LW vest this summer has also turned into disappointment. I think I'll let go of it after all because this is annoying.
Straight out of the box, only 5 minutes of wear to check the sizing.
The leather is i think my favourite up to date, i am pretty sure it is thicker than my previous 2 LW, and is loaded with grain and stretch marks, just what i like!
Fit is perfect, the change to the pattern came out great, fit pics still to come in a couple weeks once it is broken in.
This is what cure from denim fever looks like.
I always assumed that was because of the stiffness of cxl, but then again I’ve never tried a LW or any of the other heavy weight contenders. My mid weight Aeros are very comfortable to wear.
I can also confirm that the pattern has much bigger influence than the weight of the leather or its stiffness.
This one is a stunner!
On another note, my 15+ year old Aero HWM in Horween CXL is the most comfortable leather jacket I've ever worn.
