Lovin my new zip sleeve highwayman. Great call I made going with size 38 tapered to 36 torso/hem. This is thick black cxl steer. Ordered another to match in tumbled cxl brown steer. Added 1/2 inch length sleeves n body and requested 23 pit and 19 shoulder. Pretty much spot on my requests.

Wow. That looks great. Front yoke def adds something new. The taper is a good call. I did a 1" taper on my PHM. Keep hearing great things about the steer. My next one will prob be that. Enjoy breaking it in.

One of my favorite jackets, a heavy steerhide Aero Highwayman. This one is heavier than normal, even for steerhides, and the sleeves are unusually thick. So thick that it would mitigate a lot of crush force, like a dog bite, or another animal. I like that. I've worn this jacket on lonely mountains on long hikes. I've only had it for about a year but it has already seen a lot and will see much more.

I have a Sam Walker that is very similar to yours in color, hide and weight; I can't wait till mine has the look and wear that yours has.

We're into cold and clear weather, in the 30's overnight---probably wearing my repro WW2 tanker's jacket w/ AAF, North American Aviation and Pratt & Whitney patches, along with a leather name-tab. It's such a good forgery that I have to correct unknowing peoples' impression that I'm a WW2 vet! (Didn't think I looked like a well-preserved 95-year-old...)

Mine's gonna be the repro WW2 tanker's jacket, with USAAF / North American Aviation/Pratt & Whitney patches, and a leather name tab. Such a good forgery that I have to correct uninformed people who mistake me for a 90-odd-year-old Air Force veteran!

I've been wearing my green JWM cruiser most of the week ( definitely one of my favorite jackets ) , but today I went back to the TLW Chicago municipal.

I really do love this jacket, my first leather jacket, I'm very happy with the quality and the fit, and it has some sentimental value.
If there's anything I'd change about this jacket, I'd like a lighter shade of brown, but I love everything else about it.

I'd love to get an American made reproduction Ww2 tankers jacket.
My grandfather drove a tank across France with the US ARMY 4th armored division, and to have a tanker jacket would just be awesome.
My uncle has most of his stuff in storage somewhere, and I don't know who will wind up with his jacket if he even kept it.
The small items from his safe I do at least have, but the uniform and everything else I have no clue.
