My 50's Swedish goatskin dispatch rider coat, which came the day after I broke my bloody arm (hence the non-wear pictures).
It's utterly amazing on me (I usually have to get "custom" in the arms since I'm built like a orangutan)

70 year old goatskin means it's finally got character to the leather and the way it buttons up from either side isn't something I've seen before.

Awesome jacket. I have one in brown. Although this is not a dispatch riders jacket. These were called brewers tailcoat and were used as workwear in breweries originally but spread to a lot of other industries early to mid 1900s. Even used as protective gear by the Swedish post office in the 1950s.

There are jackets that are definitive keepers. This Bates is a keeper for me. I always thought that it is black, but on this pic it looks like a very, very dark green. Or are my eyes playing tricks on me? What do you guys think?

It’s black but I can see dark forest green too. It’s either there or there by power if suggestion. Either way a killer Bates!
