Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 740

Hold up. Is that shearling lined? that color is yes
post #11087 of 16656

I was looking for a simple and clean black leather jacket . . . something to replace my black LVC Menlo that I never really bonded with . . . two slanted hand warmer pockets, one breast pocket and button cuffs.  Having recently purchased several HH jackets, I wanted something different for this jacket . . . I wanted something more relaxed, but still historically rooted.  I loved the photos of the Real McCoys Oklahoma, but I was concerned about the deerskin.  While I wanted a more relaxed hide, I did not want something thin or lightweight like my Menlo.  Rather, I wanted a hearty and rugged hide akin to a good horse, without the rigidity.  After much contemplation, I took the plunge and went with the RMC Oklahoma sight unseen.  I own a RMC Buco J-100 and the quality is extraordinary, so I was confident that the Oklahoma would not let me down.

 

The Real McCoys Oklahoma far exceeded my expectations.  First and foremost, the deerskin is indescribably incredible.  It is as rugged and hearty as my HH jackets, yet relaxed and pliable . . . exactly what I was looking for.  The grain and texture of the deerskin is exquisite.  I am awestruck by this leather.  Likewise, RMC’s quality and craftsmanship is superlative.  The stitching is stellar.  The corduroy lined cuffs are a great detail.  My only gripe is the 1930s Talon zipper . . . while it is historically meaningful, it is not the easiest to operate (many thanks to those who advised me on the zipper – I applied some candle wax and that appears to help).

Looks good, you should tighten the back a little

Ended up grabbing the Context + Schott cxl 113. Looking forward to breaking this thing in.

How did you find the fit?  I'm returning my medium for a small because it's just slightly too bulky right now.  I am worried I won't fit the small's shoulder.

I like the fit, and I think it will get better with time considering at the moment this jacket is stiff as hell. I have a large and for what fits my shoulders (17.5") it could be considered slightly large in the chest, but its a welcomed change from the slimmer TOJs I have. Not crazy about the liner, I think I just got used to the bemberg haha.

yeah the wool lining was a bit much haha.  Sorry for so many questions I'm just trying to not have remorse before I send my return package.  Do you normally wear larges?

That pic is as old as the jacket itself.

There's a poster on here who's the nephew Bozo Texino. I admit, for a moment, I kind of wanted to get a Schott Perfecto and ask if his uncle could paint the back, but figured that would be tacky to ask (possibly even to wear)

It would be neither and I bet he'd do it. Sounds like a cool idea to me as I am a big fan of his as well.
