    It’s a challenge for me as well. I can do, like most folks, the 60’s and later. The cuts pre 1960 we’re just so much different. A harder nut to crack for sure. For me though an original piece just feels so much more...I don’t even no what the word is. If I was told I could only keep one, it would be this one and I wouldn’t hesitate or likely even miss the rest. I just really like the feeling I have wearing this jacket...I just don’t get it from the others. Not sure why.

    @AbbaDatDeHat put it nicely, "The squeak of old leather when you breath, the second skin glove fit and that old friend feeling".

    Blindingly bright harsh sunlight outside.
    standing way too far from mobilephone cam, no mirror behind the mobilephone to check my distance unlike the usual spot.

    Hmm i have this theory again , leather jacket is getting more drape and softer just by hanging on a hanger affected by gravity and probably air aging it. I dont remember the back panel to be so broken in last time, and i dont wear this jacket a lot.

    Great to see you again, brother! Post more of that two tone. That's insane how it turned out. I remember it when it was brand new and shiny.

    Can't really decide, today. Either black Suede blouson or lined, darkblue (Lee Rider type) Denim jacket or navyblue fieljacket Parka. :D

    That's the jacket that belonged to me prior to MrFrown! Absolutely brilliant jacket! Was kind of too small at the time, which is why I sold it. Would've been great now. I bought it in Canada.
