This is one of your best fitting jackets! Very nice
Is that the leather with the crazy upcharge? Looks great!
@Imuricecreamman Thanks! Yes, that's the one. Comparing this leather quality with Shinki used by Freewheelers or Himel this HH is not worse at all IMO and would be worth the price tag if workmanship would be on same level as FW or Himel...I mean it's still very good but for this price the stitching quality should be better. I bought this one second hand from a fellow lounger (from Belgium) some time ago...condition was almost new. Leather heaviness, leather quality and smell and overall fit makes this jacket one of my favorite leather jackets.
My favorite of your jackets. Fit is perfect for this style. I have a Victory HH Bill Kelso. The leather is special, not like any other I have found.
Hey everyone. Been lurking.
Woke up this morning to like 60 degree temps. Ran to the closet to get my first outdoor leather jacket fix. Up until now, been wearing them around the house to get some breaking in. Wife, kids, dogs and cats think I'm nuts wearing a zipped up Schott and boxer shorts to bed.
Anyway, going to hit 95 in a few hours, so was fun while it lasted, but we're almost there.
Looks nice! Is that the soft/grainy cowhide one??

You'll fit right in here! Welcome to the Outwear section of Fedora Lounge!
Looks good. Looks great really. To me it’s the kind of thing maybe you don’t want to look too perfect.
There’s a certain primal or even berserker-ish carefree aspect you’re tapping in to. “Yeah I ripped the arms off the jacket. So?”
Looks nasty! But aren't the sleeves too long?
yes, it's the waxy cowhide. Really soft and "gooey". Only worn it like 5 times with Covid hitting and summer kicking in. I've got the 118 also which is the naked cowhide. similar cuts, but totally different feel. and the 519 has the star.
Nice Robbie and a fantastic fit..!!
Nice. I'm not a vest guy. But I prefer this to a purpose built vest. There's something cool and more authentic about re-purposing it like this.
Thanks, Seb (and everyone else). It was fun cutting off the sleeves. Man, five years ago I wouldn't have dreamed of doing something like this. That jacket woulda been my greatest treasure and now...
Trojan. Got soaked. Crazy S FL rain storm outta nowhere.
Oh, sorry, forgot to reply. I'll see how I really like the vest and then decide if investing any more into it is worthwhile. But I really like it so far. The shoulders are a bit wide but I'm super skinny at the moment (was watching The Machinist the other day and realized I'm not that far off... Worst part, I was semi-jealous of Bale's look and I don't know why!) and it'll look better on a jean jacket or something. Problem is, I've no clue what can be done with the epaulets, as they're set in place by the snap, more than the stitching. Shorten them, perhaps? Dunno, but I like wearing that thing as it is right now so... We'll see.
Did the water get thru? I got caught a few times in a rain storm in Canada while wearing my LW vest but it didn't get soaked. I don't think a single molecule of water got thru that finish.
Not a drop. My shirt is dry. My jeans, that’s another story man. It feels like I did the JonesyWear beach protocol.
Heading up to Hanalei in my new Arcadia for a North shore swim. Hanalei Surf Hot Water Treatment (HSHWT) patent pending, Yes or no?
No, not in the Shinki ...
