Sportclad. Posted in another thread but figured it really belongs here.
this looks very nice. I must get more details on the zipper.
Himel Bros Wolverine
One of my favorites!
Based on the pull and slide (plus what you and @Mysteryo have put out there "on the line" about the Penney's, Sportclad and Kurland jackets), I'm thinking late 40s. The only thing throwing me off is that the stopper on mine doesn't say Talon. Early 50s possible too, they just used some older zip parts. Or the Talon-less stops were also used during the tail end of the 40s but became the stop of choice in the 50s. I do not know. The jacket is old. Anyways, hope the picture helps.
That top one is the aviator Kurland, correct? With the large, simple D Pocket. Cool jacket.
As is the Wolverine.
Edit: The Kurland disappeared. LOL. NP, just stating this so fellow members do not think I started drinking early.
Two way zip! Awesome!
Speaking of two way... earlier on this thread someone posted their All Saints leather. I thought I'd post my All Saints find. I saw this while traveling a few years ago, in their Seattle store. Whenever I like a jacket, but not ready to pull the trigger, I always take a pic of the tag for reference. After I returned home, I start thinking how nice this jacket was, I did a search online and found it on Nordstrom website for 1/2 price...Score! Very unusual for these more fashion leaning jackets to have such heavy duty zips and also the two way zipper function... glad they did it. It's not for riding, but it's been a good knock around/travel leather. BTW, I cut the epauletes off, because they were driving me nuts and I'm not such a fan, just didn't like the way they looked on this particular jacket.
Blue/green horse. No gif
What a beauty, one of the nicest leathers ever to grace these pages.
That’s some serious armor!
A rare leather jacket day today with my GW Arcadia Shinki. 71 F., 17 mph winds, and rainy. Not a beach day.
Same same, hoping to get a shade more into darker tan.
Yeah that's a good point. I actually have a friend that I could ask about this. He may know. I'll reach out to him and post what he says. It seems more like roughout to me, but I'm not really an expert on suede and roughout having not owned a ton of each.
Now that's a beautiful jacket brother! The color is killer...
Aero Hooch Hauler
Nice. I like the HH a lot. My first Aero was my Bootlegger, and it has possibly been my most-work leather over the years. At some point, I'd quite like one in another leather, possibly goat... the HH would be a good choice for a bit of variation. Tempted by the idea of a button front and no chest pocket-zip....
Don't they have that pattern already? The moonshiner?
