    Fun video. Jason says that the creaking is because the Per70 is vegetable tanned! I had no clue and never would have guessed. But it really does creak. I like the way it fits that dude. It's a fantastic jacket. Possibly my favorite Perfecto ever. I wore it while riding a bicycle today and it is so comfortable to cycle in. Each day that I'm wearing it, more and more confirms my review. This time I really feel there's nothing substantially superior in this exact style, in a way of... I dunno really but it's just a right mix of functionality, weight, look, vibe, etc...

    Excellent fit on all pieces. 777's are my favorite IH's. Need another pair asap. Jacket is deadly. :D

    Think I did good on this one. Low bid on Buyee.jp. Didn't get much action because I guess no belt and someone had cut off the epaulettes, but wasn't a big deal to me. All in came out to $275.

    No serial numbers so it has to be mid/early 80s but not that old because it doesn't have the older white label. Leather is unbelievable, like lamb skin soft but Vanson thick. The graining, wow. Especially on the upper out sleeve, under lower sleeve, lapels, gusset grooves, back side panels. Wow.

    Quilting on this thing is beast too. Not sure if Vanson usually does this or maybe was repaired or relined, but it's sort of doubled up in the mid back with a pleat which Vs out to most of the body. All talon zips and the main is a monster sized one. Little bit of fraying I need to keep an eye on. I think it will be fine but I'm getting a pull at the bottom because the jacket is on the snug side.

    Pants too rad for the poor cam to focus on. 25+yo mall bought mid 90 non stretch baggy jeans from highschool era, modded with slimmer leg and ankle zip few yrs back when i wore skinny jeans all the time, then I busted the knee from sudden squat to catch the cat from running out, recently i repaired the rip by hand stitching leftover material from my jacket liner. And my most worn type 3 from kendogi sashiko fabric.

    Thank you! I've been trying to wear it as much as I can whenever I can.

    Too bad about the faded type 3 with the distressed pants combo!

    Welcome! Great outfit, and nothing wrong at all with the fit of the jacket. Super first post and nice background too! (Obligatory pun: now get out while you still can...)

    14C start today for our Harley ride south on the coast. Forecast was 31C for the return journey on the inland freeway.
    SO it was the vented Vanson Sturgis choice for the day as I needed to "beat the heat" coming north in the arvo.
    Even with the vents open it was warm en route home.

    Consider yourself lucky to have found a Vanson in a leather like this! Congrats. :) And yeah, their quilted lining is always heavyweight. Built to tackle some serious cold.

    I usually just scroll past these regular jackets nowadays to be honest but this one always makes me stop and admire, and I don't even realize right away it's FL. Material & craftsmanship aside, it just simply looks good.

    Nice! Looks like it's the only jacket you wear these days. Time to move the others? LOL
