    [​IMG][​IMG] vintage steerhide Bootlegger style (correction, not horse). Light weight, pleasantly stiff & dense, the kind that was used by Schott.

    This custom sized Wested horsehide Firenze came in the mail today. I’m short and stocky so standard sizes don’t fit. This turned out pretty well, I think. I’m planning to dye it black, as my Raiders is already the dark brown horsehide. [​IMG]

    Wow! what a gorgeous jacket!
    its's actualy a repro of the early 50's Schott Perfecto. They even reproduced the label, changing Perfecto for Fine Creeks. But they do it in a state of art! Although Idon't see the point in cuttin the epaulets and belt.
    What size did you take?

    Congrats for that

    I got a Mulholland in a 42 which I got from Melbourne a while back, however I lost a bit of weight over recent months and I took a punt on getting the Caboose from Genco in Japan. I knew that it was a slimmer fit and that I would go down a size. It is an expensive punt to take but I took an educated guess using the size chart compared to the Mulholland. I was pleased with the results but no room for layering. Hope that helps.

    Dyed it black last night. Used Fiebing’s Pro dye, which is a pigmented oil rather than liquid infused with pigmented powder... it went on easily. Brushed on with a wool dauber and then rubbed it with an old t shirt. Oiled and waxed morning after. Also wearing my old brown Noconas that I dyed black as the test subject, having never done it before.

    Should have worn rubber gloves. Leather isn’t the only kind of skin it will dye!

    Yeah I thought about that. I'm scared though. Not too impatient to wait. Need a misty day to wear it in. It's either warm and cloudy or sunny and freezing lately.

  14. My suggestion is get a plastic spray bottle. Spray jacket with water until quite wet then wear it around the house until dry. Then repeat. The results will surprise you. Has worked for me many times.

    All my prior aero and new vanson jackets I fully submerged them in a tub of luke warm water, rolled them in a towel to somewhat dry, then wore them for a few hours, then hung to dry. Works like a charm. A couple vanson I even washed in the washer on cold brand new. I have never seen any ill effects. I probably would not use hot and not dry. I think even on aeros site they talk about the hot water submersion. Pop pop pop

    Love that jacket btw looks great on you !

    Exactly that’s what I do! The results are great and it does not feel to harsh or artificial...

    Recovering from a 103F fever/flu. Second week on the new job and I come down with a bug. So much for trying to look like a good employee! I'm wearing the Aero A-2 today in kind of a morose mood. As soon as my eyes start dripping again I'll take it off...

    How's the length? These are not low-rise jeans.

    This technique will work for any horsehide? I'd like to speed up the graining on my Schott Perfecto.

    ^^ borderline, but acceptable. Looks like some nice leather. if the fit is good everywhere else, keep it.
