Some nice aging here!

Sizing - especially with those "high value" jackets is always a pain in the neck for me coz they are available on order only most of the times ...

And ordering online is simply not just "going to a shop and trying different sizes" so it is hard to test whether one size + or minus would work better ...

Yes, isn´t it?

This is basically the HR-55, but in this leather only available via "The Shop Vancouver". So you got the (already high) Price, +20% VAT/Customs plus shipping and handling.

Add a sizing mistake and your ready to kick your own backside until you can´t sit no more...;).

Took my bike in for scheduled maintenance and new shoes in a LW vest.

Here are some pics of my late 40s-early 50s Buco J22 short model. It's a 20" Back on a size 40. Love how it fits me. Thanks again to @jeo For helping me look over it and discussing pricing eith the dealer. Couldn't be happier with this jacket.

I've been looking for a D pocket for a while and something that actually hits me at my belt line for over a decade now. Finally got it.

Been too warm for anything lately but temps set to cool. Just received this no name suede drug rug from the 70’s. I like the color quite a bit. It’ll see plenty of wear.

Very similar to my Schott rancher without the Sherpa liner. It’s a nice light and silky nylon liner, which I’ve decided is a must. I can’t wear unlined suede.

LOL. Not a fan? I like the simplicity of these shirt jackets. It’s like wearing a shirt..that’s a jacket…that’s a shirt.
It's good, I like it. Not as much as that two-tone rockabilly masterpiece, but I like it. Given your propensity to move stuff along, however, the odds aren't in your favor. You've been shucking suede like another Chicago icon:

LOL. True but this isn’t even worth selling. It equates to little more than a Jimmys XL sausage/pep. (Delivered).

You also starch your jeans? Saw a tutorial the other day of how you get that crisp and razorsharp edge on them legs ... - it's a science ...
Not I but my good wife does and always has. She’s a fanatic for clothes being sharp and wrinkle free. Uses an industrial strength steam iron, makes her own starch. She’s about as expert as they come. She taught our boys to put razor sharp edges on their wranglers while still in high school
