It has already left Amsterdam three time since the 20th of February so who knows. It's about to drive me insane :(

Interesting! I have the same label woolie, but mine has a Talon zipper, dated to January 1942.

So looks like ACME made jackets for both US and Canadian market.

I’ve actually just noticed that this one is Labelled both “Lightening” and “Canada”, which I haven’t seen.

I LOVE yours….plaid is great, but Navy/Black wool is my favourite for sure.

I bought this 2022 Horsehide Langlitz a few weeks ago. When it first arrived it appeared brand new, and I don’t know what it was, but I didn’t love it.

A few weeks later, and some pretty rough treatment, and we’re beginning to understand each other.

I’ve never had a new leather jacket; I’ve brought many back from the dead, but never had to beat one until I like it.

Simmons Bilt black goat Klondike. Olive stitching, chest pocket altered to remove outer cording, wrist cuffs omitted; straight line finish. Triangular patches added to chest and hand warmers pockets. Inner pocket is made of the olive cotton lining, not leather faced. Brown corozo buttons. This is a relatively nice and simple modification of their pattern. The back is yoked as usual.

Like the Aero in dark seal, this is a lighter hide (the SB is lighter than the Aero, but there isn't much in it; both were 1.2 mm but this is more pliable). The neck is really comfortable - somehow, the weight is distributed differently from other jackets I own (suit jackets and blazers approximate the neck 'weight' of this jacket).
