Isn't it too warm to wear leather jackets over there?

In Barcelona is already too warm to wear anything cotton or linen during the day.

I wear them in the morning around 7 AM when I drive to gym, and in the evenings after 10 pm. Otherwise yes, too warm.

working with our horses wearing new LW horsehide. Starting to brake in nicely. LW hh jackets are great because you don’t need to baby them. They can take the abuse and become better after it.

I think you could go for a swim in a lake and the Lost Worlds would not get soaked. The leather is that waterproof I think.

I wouldn't try it though, if it gets soaked you'll get pulled down by the weight!

An evening out with my wife. Was too hot for a leather jacket. I wonder how you guys in warmer climates manage to wear leather jackets…

Us Antipodeans wear leather jackets with grim determination my friend
Honestly I usually wear "lightweight" leather (like our state's police jackets) or a A2,since they aren't insulated or have any sort of padding to retain heat and humidity.
Anything that's got a thick or wooly liner is too much for even the coldest nights in Australia.... which is a pity for my LW "car coat" and German police officer peacoat

Bates boots as well?

Nah, boots are trash for crap weather.

The funniest thing about this picture is I actually have the same make and model jacket that the prop department used to create the Mad Max jacket (Stagg Leather (Melbourne) "Brando single flap" )
A wierd jacket that is a little like a love child between a cafe racer and a perfecto.....but us Antipodeans are a strange breed

Show this to me, please.
