WTB: Leather Shirt / Pullover size M or S

Messages

Got this regular leather shirt that's honestly keeping me alive this winter but the buttons are annoying so was wondering if anyone has a cheap-ish leather shirt / pullover in a size M or S?
Anyone from Europe, perhaps?

Something like Taubers or Vanson or whatever, preferably collarless. Cal's got the best one but I don't suppose I'll ever score one of those and TBH I'm not too fond of paying insane amounts of money on one.

Thanks!!

I have this one which I’d be willing to part with if you’re interested. Has a zip up the right side. It’s 40ish, can measure this evening if you’d like.

Hm, you definitely have my attention. Was hoping for something collarless but that is one sweet collar. Yeah, if you can take some measurements, sure. I'd appreciate it. How do the sleeves close? And what'd you be looking to get for it? Not gonna lie, this'd be just an undershirt for me so I really do hope to grab one for as little as possible.

The sleeves have brass snaps, the snap cover is black.

Price wise dunno, $115 plus the shipping cost? I paid $155 and have worn it twice. We can discuss further via DM, if the measurements work out.

Definitely interested!! I'll DM you tomorrow. I'll take it 100% if size works for me.

There is a very soft, but very warm leather, called "chamois." It's pronounced: Sham-Wah. Not cheap, but incredibly warm and hard wearing and ideal for a shirt. You should always protect it by wearing a tee shirt underneath, my missus made mine.

Huh, this is pretty darn cool, actually and the price isn't that bad, considering how much this stuff usually costs! Fancy looking but I'd kinda want people to see I'm wearing it.

If you order one, please do a review. The leather looks nice (rather thick even) on those and there is a lot of work done for each one.

There are many American companies that produce a good quality leather shirt. I got several from different companies including US leathers and branded leathers. My favorite is Kerr. Wonderful quality at Vanson level but at half the price.

Love this type. I have a purple label Ralph Lauren that is just perfect. Also, for under 70 dollars, the nice Californians are hard to beat.

It’s actually pronounced “sham-wow!” :)
I might just steal that. I have a birthday in March, so when she says: "Anything you fancy for your birthday?"

The chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra) is a species of goat-antelope native to mountains of Europe but it has also been introduced to the Southern Island of New Zealand. The Brits, like the New Zealanders, tend to call the leather, shammy. It's used extensively in car cleaning, absorbing the water of a washed car, it leaves no trace or smear.

When buying a chamois shirt, check carefully the front buttons and buttonholes. The kid leather is so soft that fastening can be difficult. To overcome that my missus used interfacing. I only have a photo of her interfacing an Aloha shirt, but it's the same meat, just different gravy.
