    I love the Gene Simmons collar tab on these Brimaco jackets!
    Great pick-up @Robbie79.

    @Jin431 @handymike Thanks guys for your positive feedback. I'm so glad that it fits so well (it was a gamble as I only knew height and weight of the seller - he's taller and heavier) and as the zippers perfectly work and lining is in very good condition (there is one stain on the jacket but that's OK for me). I also prefer slightly longer jackets sometimes as I often prefer to wear shirts untucked and wearing rather short jackets like the Vanek makes it sometimes difficult to use it as a grab-n-go jacket. I'm 100% sure that this will be a keeper for years.

    Lemaire Lambskin Blouson. Based on a leather from the 1974 Wim Wenders film “Alice in the Cities”. (A film i have not seen lol). Leather is very soft, really a well made jacket from a fashion house. Love Lemaires subtle, austere interpretation of 70s wear.

    Just had to check them out. Not really into “western boots” but they have some really cool exotic leathers. Might get a wallet or belt from them. Also I’m a big fan of a musician called Jesse Dayton and they have a boot named after him so I’m loving that.

    That's a great film! I wouldn't mind if more artisanal makers began taking inspiration from the styles of late 1960s & '70s Euro Noir - e.g.,

    Very happy to have had this Field Leathers Idaho make it’s way to me. Preowned and fueling the fire for a custom build in the future.

    @Robbie79 How in the world did you manage to get such an amazing fit with no measurements even?!
    Beautiful jacket!

    My Freewheelers Lot. 667 over a Mister Freedom Ranch Blouse with my same old horrible Action Man posing skills.

    I have a hard time finding a jacket that would fit me off the shelf so it's rare that I can wear even those jackets.

    @dudewuttheheck Thanks, Dude! I was just gambling that it turns out to be the right decision but TBH it was an easy decision for just 89€ incl shipping (jacket was luckily located in Germany). Now I‘m more than happy that it’s so comfy and perfect for upcoming Spring and Summer as it is medium to light weight.

    Yeah I guess for that price it's hard to go wrong. I'm just really impressed with the fit. Great jacket.
