That’s an awesome jacket to have to make due with while you wait!
I would test a spot with a second coat. Go thin with the oil, but with LP, 2 or even 3 coats really gets it looking good. You’ve already committed to this road, so try another round.
@Will Zach can we see what the Kakishibu did to the natural belt?
Thanks! It sure is and that Oakbrook looks like the cross zip equivalent, very similar grain characteristics. I really hope it turns up cause it would suck to have it disappear.

Went for a ride today, full leather.
Nice Cal on right! I have the same 5-snap chaps. Can't identify the left jacket, but looks good.
Edit: sorry, I meant "7-snap"...
Guessing some sort of Sears, probably a Herc or early Oakbrook? I think I can make out the D with patch pocket. Great picture, as always posted by @Davisleathernyc
ton, I missed the back story? who's Shawn and what jacket is this? I love this style, been meaning to make one myself
Shawn from 5 Star leathers. The jacket was based on this little number. An original 30’s-40’s HB. They did a great job replicating it to my spec. I have tons of images of this jacket if you want to take a crack at making one.
Ooh, i remember this one! They did well, you like the fit? Based on what I can see, this pattern doesn't have much of a quirk to it, visually it's like a standard pattern as those Lesco/Schott four pockets in the 70s with higher armhole. If you have a side view of you wearing this (original) jacket, I just want to see where the shoulder seam lies.
I love this leather and this model. I'd love a halfbelt made out of this hide.
Too cool!!! Seen the gear on IG, too. Massive <3. What are those white pants? That early Sears is destroying.
That's the kind of fit you'd never even think about asking online about. You just now.
I love the fit! It's nice and trim, but not overly so (at least imho). The original jacket wasn't mine. I was given pics from @AerGuitar for the build. You're right about the lesco/schott vibe too, kinda like these guys:
It was in the high 60s F. to low 70s F. for a few days so I skipped my swim and went for a walk along the coastal trail instead. The guys living in their van parked at the beach park in town, in good fun kidded me a bit about wearing a leather jacket and boots. I did a cuff check.

damn I love this jacket. If I got a crosszip, it would be this.
And there it is. Couldn’t ever find one like it. But the night is young....
