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....

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.

/\/\ I used to own that DH (not the same piece). Lovely all round; leather treatment was like nothing else and construction was top notch! Wonderful little details all throughout.
Sizing was TTS.

Looks like roughout to me. Dope.

A couple of years ago, I became interested in Buco style leather jackets.  I tried on a Himel Kensington but, having exalted and owned only softer leathers up until then, it was more rigid than I was accustomed to and I therefore passed.  I ended up purchasing a LVC Buco.  I really enjoyed the LVC and wore it extensively, but in the back of my mind I quietly yearned for something more.

 

Over the ensuing two years, I came to appreciate, and even prefer, more rigid leathers, including horsehide, and my yearning for something more ultimately led me to the Real McCoys Buco J-100.  I learned that, at the 2013 Inspiration show, RMC brought a J-100 with them and offered it for sale at the end of the show.  Therefore, I arrived early to the 2014 Inspiration, cash in pocket, hoping that RMC might again have a J-100 with them and it might be my size.  I was thrilled to discover that RMC had one J-100 with them at Inspiration and it was exactly my size.  The RMC representative (I forgot his name) confirmed that the jacket was available so long as I picked it up at the end of the show.  Touchdown!!!!  After walking around Inspiration for a while, I returned to the RMC booth to tender payment.  During the interim, Kent Tsujimoto – RMC’s Chief Production Manager and the founder’s son – arrived at the booth.  Kent informed me that the J-100 I desired was already spoken for and not available (it had been pre-sold).  Needless to say, I was very disappointed.  Two days later, I saw Kent again at the Rising Sun party.  Kent’s father, Hitoshi Tsujimoto, was also present.  Kent told me that he was sorry about the earlier misunderstanding and he would like to address the situation.  Thereafter, Hitoshi approached me and promised to make things right.  Kent and Hitoshi could not have been more gracious.  A week later, my new RMC Buco J-100 arrived from Japan.  HUGE thanks to Kent!!!

 

I love this jacket!!!  The leather is unreal.  From the stitching to the zippers, every detail is exquisite.  The night I received the jacket, I wore it for seven straight hours while playing poker, and constantly flexed my elbows to break it in (unfortunately, I was so enamored with the jacket that I did not focus enough on the game and I lost more than the cost of the jacket – fortunately, I won it back three days later).

 

I am not sure yet what I will do with my LVC:

 

 

 

 

 

As much as I enjoyed the LVC, the RMC J-100 is in a different league:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So cool that RMC licensed the Buco name.
