    Yes. Vanson Legacy X2 in gorgeous soft cowhide. Keeps the adamantium-coated skeleton warm.

    Indeed, it got pretty hot for a while in Auld Reekie and jacket spent time on the shoulder. I'm sure there must be a few advantages to living in NYC though....

    My debut in this thread is with a ....fashion jacket. :0). It is a 1990s Dolce & Gabbana's take on a cafe racer in kangaroo hide. I post it here because I just love roo hide and I hope you guys will appreciate it. It is probably the densest mammal hide, and therefore very strong. They used to use it for motorcycle racing suits (maybe still do), and soccer shoes (they don't anymore because of political correctness). This hide is thin (maybe about 1 mm) but has a great hand, very little grain and I just love the patina it developed around pockets and zippers. The jacket has two slash hand warmer pockets with zippers. All zippers are very beefy. I picked up the jacket on the bay couple of years ago and have loved it ever since. The breast pockets are a little busy, but I love them, too... :)

    That's lovely mate ! And that is said from the land of the kangaroo.

    When I was a (skinnier) dude I had a lovely Sydney made Kangaroo trucker jacket.

    Made by Numac leather ( no longer in existence as happens..)

    That jacket now lives in Tasmania with my skinnier younger brother

    Good onya as they say here !

    Thanks Seb. I think that for a light summer/late spring/early fall jacket roo is just the ticket. I actually contacted Thurston to find out if Aero has some roo hide left. Carrie said no more. I then asked if they could make me a board racer if I supply the hide. Carrie thought it would be quite risky, as the hides are small, and what if they are unsuitable? Oh well. There was one roo Aero floating around FL, maybe the owner will post in this thread?

    Tried on this Johnson Leather 3.5-4 oz ish very dark brown Horween cowhide jacket (you have to hold it next to a black leather jacket to distinguish it from black) which I received just a few days ago. Picked it up from @jos198 who got it as a gift and never really wore it. It was not made to my specs but I'm fairly happy with how it fits. Wide shoulders, as all JL jackets, but unlike most here, I dig that.

    This jacket is yet again another example of the incredibly fine work Alan does. Construction, hide and range of motion are a joy to behold. With Johnsons M-200 currently being in the 900 USD range in Horween leather and with minor modifications, I don't understand why not more people go for this, especially in the US where Aeros go for like 1300 new? Can only recommend checking them out.

    Looks really nice, perfect fit. With dark jackets like that a flash helps a lot, even in daylight. The pics a few posts above I took also on my balcony, and without flash no details were visible.
