Vintage leather bomber jacket (A-2 style) tag size: 42 "Made in USA" Classic staple jacket that looks great with jeans or chinos. Perfect for fall. It's a sweet little bomber with a lot of intangibles (one piece back, two piece arms, modest collar, scalloped front flaps with snaps, etc). I'll never know if it's cow/steer or horse - but it's a high quality, substantial hide that appears to have started out a dark 'seal' brown and aged to a lovely chocolate. Condition is...

I like those too - they tweaked my neck.
That boot is amazing!
Exactly. CXL in the past few years has almost become the default leather. I still think it's a fantastic leather, but it's reputation is inflated. There are tons of wonderful leathers and the pull-up isn't always the best choice. It's hard to understand why someone would purchase a CXL boot if they aren't actually looking for that rubbed / scuffed look. That is what that particular leather is all about.
As far as I can tell, it was Alden (especially a few particular collabs about seven years ago - Context Clothing's 'Roy Boots' and LeatherSoul's 'Ultimate Indies') and Wolverine that really made CXL leather popular. Viberg is hardly a pioneer in using that leather.
I'm quite sure Wolverine was using CXL on their 1000 mile boots long before Viberg jumped on the CXL bandwagon.
OSB as in Oak Street Bootmakers? And Wolverine? Strange to see these two cited as cheaply made. They might not be Viberg's but they aren't exactly mall trash. In either case the CXL leather they are using is the same or very similar to Viberg.
