Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 555

your wife looks great in that NN

sinnedk, i can't comment on/compare with earlier iterations but tried on the calf stooges from this season and quality seemed good, it was pretty heavy/rugged. the only problem was that the sleeves are really, really long. i know that's intended but i'm 5'11" with normal proportions and it looked ridiculous

Thanks!  We're all signed up and our affiliate vendor thread will begin in Classic Menswear either today or tomorrow...  We're definitely happy to be members of the StyleForum.net community and we'll post up Aero, Vanson, Schott, PCL, and select vintage leather jackets on this thread from time to time to display styles that are popular with our customers who are in their 20s and 30s.

 

Eighty to ninety percent of our Aero sales are bespoke purchases, but the jackets come out very, very nice!  Here's a customer's Aero Sonoma Racer, Horween Brown C/X Steerhide (very deep color and grain!)...

Welcome to SF.

Checked out the website and saw this right in the front page, can you provide details on the jacket? Is it custom and is that shearling on the collar?

so oiled calf stooges and reverse cow stooges are the ones to go for

thanks dude...

thats my 2 cents

I liked washed lamb but it is more delicate, the basic calf used to be pretty nice to look at, not sure now that lots of jackets look like Balmain.

The washed lamb is what I have and I really like it.  It is really soft though, I'm not sure how it'll age.

 

I'm still tempted by that shearling but I feel like shearlings are something that would see little use for the price (too hot to wear in a bar, etc).

My stooges are regular lamb and it is very supple, I love it. It is more wearable in California too and easier to layer.

the unofficial rule is that the one you own is the best one
post #8321 of 11837
Admittedly, I bought the lamb because I couldn't find the oiled calf.
post #8322 of 11837
i had and sold the oiled calf but got like 3.5k so i couldn't refuse
post #8323 of 11837
Damn, did you even pay that much for that jacket?

This is a Vanson Custom CHP with a removable black mouton shearling collar.  If you like this jacket, you might also want to check out the Aero J106 in Horween C/X Front Quarter Horsehide.  Vanson and Aero's leathers break in very well, displaying a lot of character, color, and grain.  To give you an example of how these leathers break in, here is an Aero Sonoma Cafe' Racer in Horween C/X Front Quarter Horsehide with five months of wear...

I liked the feel of the oiled calf Intarsia that I owned briefly FWIW.
