    Good thing I’m typing because I’m basically speechless.
    I received this Vanson CR today off the bay. Lone bidder. $98+10. Listed as vintage VGC. There was some speculation on the “how many new..” thread that it would date to the early nineties or earlier based on the Talon zipper. What ever era it is from, they got the sleeves right then. Many current Vanson have bodybuilder bicep sleeves. These are snug but not so much as to limit mobility.

Soft as a 5 yr old grass cutting sweatshirt. Wear marks and patina in all of the right places. Not a stich popped. The grain on the leather looks like the oldest, meanest elephant on the savanna. The only odor is the satisfying aroma of enduring cool. I shall not mention the fit as I don’t wish to well up with tears of happiness. Bless you previous owner. I hope it was nominal weight gain from a life well enjoyed that has forced you to pass this on. Rest easy. I’ve got it from here.

    Great looking jacket. Your review is interesting, because I believe I read somewhere that the older white-label Vansons were made from leather inferior to their more recent jackets.

    Not familiar with “white label”. I’m certainly far from an aficianado but this is exactly how I want a bike jacket to look and feel.

    I think the weight loss has actually made you look younger Thuggee.
