Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 679

If you have your body measured correctly how can you order the wrong size? If you gain 20 pounds during the 15 month wait time then that's a different issue.

I had the mollino in oil calf darkness, which indeed looked dark grey.

Well they do have stock sizing ...

Last time I posted in this thread I was made fun of for owning vintage leather, but I don't care- I'll post again... I own 11 leather jackets now, a few by by Schott, mostly American made, and mostly vintage, but I was recently surprised by the quality of a very low priced jacket at leatherup.com so I thought I'd share about it for anyone who can't spend $500 or more on a jacket...

 

This thing cost me $99 with free shipping. Maybe it's not the "best leather jacket," as I suppose I am unqualified to determine what that actually is (I guess maybe I am still a little bitter about being teased last time I posted here), but I do believe it is absolutely the best leather jacket you'll find outside of a thrift store for $99... I actually bought it the same day that I had earlier tried on and passed on a Schott 141 while I had the $600+ in my pocket that I'd saved specifically to buy said Schott. This one had a slimmer cut and heavier leather, plus a removable lining. Granted, I feel a little guilty for not supporting American manufacturing with that purchase, but at least it was $100 to what is possibly a sweat shop and not $500 to one....

Typo- I've OWNED 11 in the past 2 years... They're constantly coming in and going out. I think I have 7 or 8 right now...

Can someone please please please tell me who makes this jacket. It's the one I've been looking for!

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100


Thanks!!

I'm not sure what the point of buying a shitty $99 leather jacket is when you already own 10 leather jackets.

The point is that he hadn't already owned that one. It has since been remedied.
