    Do you have a preference between steer and horse? I’m always looking for horsehide because it seems too hard to wade through all the lower quality cow hide and I like heavy leather. Is the steer as heavy as the horse?

    I don't have preference, yes, the steerhide is little heavier.

    Are the shoulder gussets functional or just for show?
    It looks like the gusset itself is barely 1" deep, i can't imagine it actually works does it?

    Just kendo-gi type3, almost 2 yrs old I think my most worn jacket by far of all leather and denim combined.
    The fading is not sharp at all, just dulling all around from indirect UV radiation i guess since i dont stand in the full sun at all.

    Actually they are 2” deep and very well done. I’ll get better pics in a thread today or tomorrow. This was one of my “challenge” elements. Passed the test!

    Another reason to like Sabbath (though I prefer Deep Purple).

    They really didn't eat many carbs back then.

    I have to say this is impressive.
    That jacket with a Sunburst back similar to the one @handymike posted yesterday might be my first 5 star trial run...

    The gussets are sorta like what Bates and Cal do, gradually getting deeper as they move toward the pits. In my experience that’s where the functionality is realized.

    Hello everyone, today i'm wearing this 90's Levi's suede trucker i just got off Vinted. Don't laugh but it's a women jacket in S but as everything was baggy in the 90's, this fits pretty much like a men S but sits higher on the waist like a 50/60s jacket which i really like.

    Got rained on...again. GD weather forecasters should all be fired. The LW Leathertogs kept me dry though.

    Nothing to laugh about. It fits you great, exactly like a Type-3 should IMO, it's a men's style to begin with so only measurements can possibly make it a women's jacket and my favorite shearling yellow trucker that I wear all the time is also a women's model and so far no other jacket I got has gotten me more compliments (except for maybe Lee).

    Tho I'd probably rather wear that Stormtrooper armor than any Type-3...

    Did you make sure to check the cuffs? XD

    Cool setting, cool jacket.

    Hell yes. Welcome to the cross-zip, MC world. It suits you perfectly. Looks great. This jacket is both a blessing and a curse. Welcome to a new rabbit hole.
