Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 995

post #14911 of 16656

I am really digging the BOO or Band of Outsiders leather anorak I picked up a few weeks back.  Made in Italy and it honestly has the strongest leather aroma of any item I have ever owned.

Still muddling my way thru leather jacket sizing. Any opinions from the learned members in this thread?

Salutations,

 

If you don't mind, I have a Q to drop on you daddios. That is: Flat Head leather jackets. Thoughts regarding fit, finish, etc. I'm no expert and I have but a few internet pictures to go on, so I wanted to see if any of you have handled their leather goods and what your opinions are regarding those interactions. To be precise, I have been lurking on a leather biker for months now, but I knoweth not what signs to look for nor have I a frame of reference regarding the price point. I humbly request any insights you may have.

 

Oh and here's a link to that thing I've been blathering about: http://www.selfedge.com/the-flat-head?product_id=1413

 

Thanks,

I've tried on that jacket.  It's a very good version of that buco style.  The leather is aniline from shinki, so it's the best of class for that specific style of tannage.  It will, like all leathers like that, wear to show the underlying brown.  It is. by design, NOT a dyed through leather like, say, an oil tanned leather.  

 

On thing you should be aware of is that the jacket is cut extremely small, and the arms are rather short.  I am 5'11" nad a pretty typical size 40.  The size 42 in that jacket was tight and short throughout, with really short arms.

 

So, a really nicely done jacket that is not typically sized.

Flat Head leathers are absolutely first class in every respect if the design works for your style. The SE collab is the most stripped down of their DR jackets, definitely recommended.

Ouch, thats scary since I'm 5'10ish with big arms and typically a 42. I've already missed the ship on the size 44, so I may be out of luck. I'm not an LA guy so I'm never able to try SE or UMG things on in advance. Thank you for the insights! I had no idea what most of the words in the product description meant. I was just smiling and nodding like a foreign tourist who doesn't speak the local language.

Yes, I really like the simplified aesthetic! Thank you for the confirmation of quality.

If you like the aesthetics of that Flat Head jacket (which is beautiful!) then you should also take a look at the D-pocket Avro by Himel Brothers. Himel also works with Shinki tannage. Both are top-quality jackets.

The FH jackets are well made.  The Shinki leather is first rate, but slightly heavier than other Shinki hides.  My gripe with FH jackets is the cut.  They have enormous shoulder widths in relationship to the chest size.  I cannot wear FH jackets.

This awesome Moto leather looks to be quite similar leather type to Flathead:
