Does anyone have a FQHH jacket that's really beat up and well used? I want to see how it looks after the top coat of dye fades off.

I do have a question regarding caring for the jacket, seller told me this is a jacket from 1978. I assume the leather becomes more fragile over the years? There are two small holes circles correspondingly which appears to stem from two stitching holes. Will these holes get bigger, if so how can i prevent it from doing so?

Also, how could I condition this jacket? Seller said he has used pecard on it, but I don't see how leather conditioner can penetrate the coating on this jacket

But i really like the colour of this jacket, which is a bit washed out by my phone cam. And the lighter brown areas looking as if it's distressed (but not really, finish is still one it and jacket looks barely worn)





Beautiful. I have one made by Schultz nod[1].gif

iTV recently did an interview with Aero Leather's founder.

You and me both. Have my eye on the 1920s Work Coat. Saw one in 38 for about 30 seconds on eBay last weekend that had an inside pocket, something I thought wasn't permitted as an option on that jacket. Naturally it disappeared instantly. Love that they've brought out higher armholes & a slimmer fit with the "Premier Range," but dammit I need somewhere to put this smartphone - gimme those inside chest pockets! Interestingly, that eBay jacket had the inside pocket fastened with a loop & button, which might alleviate the horsehide show-thru snaps always cause.

I believe it's supposed to be 25 year old black HH.

Hi guys,

 

I'm about to make another leather jacket purchase and you might be able to help me. I'm a pretty lonely guy in Sweden with this particular interest...

 

My recent purchase was a RRL Morrow in vegetable tanned calf from Italy. A great jacket, that fits perfect - but it's not it.

 

I've always looked at The Real McCoys and their leather work. The 30's style leather jacket with collar, the pockets and the side-adjusters. And The Real McCoys... The feeling is good about it and I like their leather work and this was/is my dreamjacket, The Real McCoys Oklahoma in deerskin.:

The pricing is high, but you get what you pay for, right? Hmm, not always, but in this case it seems fine. I didn't pay full retail for my Morrow, thank g*d.

 

Here's my question:

 

I want a leather jacket that works in Sweden during spring, summer and atumn. Think +3 to +15 degrees. I will layer thin, t-shirt or a casual shirt. But here's the thing. I know what I want - but I don't know what it is... The knowledge and range in Sweden isn't top notch when it comes to leathers and I havn't been able to try any decent leather jackets... I don't need anything bulletproff - since I don't even ride a bike.

 



The Real McCoys even have a similar jacket in Shinki FQHH in brown and black. This particular one:

What can you guys say and recommend? Will a FQHH be a bit overkill?

My wallet is thin - but this time I feel like... spare no expense! I just want it right.

 

Take care!

Here's an interesting half-belted version from another Japanese brand, Freewheelers & Co.
