Have been wearing it as much as I can since getting it. It’s starting to crease and mold nicely. Sleeves seem perfect now :)

They were never too long;)
I’ve only found sleeve creasing to effect the length when the sleeves are stacked (too long and tight at the wrist). Your sleeves were bang on out of the box. And they still are.

@Superfluous this jacket has stuck in my head as the perfect cafe racer.

What leather is this? Is it still available from Himel Bros.? Of the dark browns available on the site, I see that Shinki Horsehide Dark Brown Oil Tanned is unavailable at this time but Victoria Horsehide Dark Brown Pigment Finish is available.

Thank you for the kind words. It is Shinki HH. Unfortunately, deliveries of Shinki HH -- particularly to the very few North American manufacturers that use the hide -- can be sporadic and unpredictable. Ask Dave if he has any idea when he will receive his next shipment.

No company nails the v-shape in their biker jackets like Langlitz does in their Cascade. Perfect fit, perfect jacket!
Well said. Langlitz Custom tapering Rocks! Great looking fit !
Thanks guys. I appreciate it.
This jacket fits very good but so does a goat-skin (I think) older Cascade I have. I am really growing to like Langlitz as I try a few others here and there.

All of them are vintage and not custom. At least not originally for me. The zip detail shown indicates the main zip is a Crown, which I believe dates the jacket to the late ‘50 - early 1960s. I wish some of our resident experts would offer an educated guess. At any rate, I was not this tall back then... :D
It’s just a coincidence (or my diligence) that I fit into the jackets!
Cheers.

What am I wearing today? Hmmmm(he looks out of window) No jacket this morning, it's going to be sunny and rather warm, but later when I'm on the bike it will change to a Dianese armoured mesh.
No photo's as it's too boring for here, just thought I would say to make those a little envious if it it raining in your residence.
