    I don't know why I don't really look at this thread very much, but this is pretty fucking funny (and bonus! it's meant to be!). So much vitriol out there; nice to feel a different vibe.
    Oh, and here's the best leather jacket I've ever seen or worn or owned: a1923 in oiled horse leather. Fucking incredible.

    ^ Thats some sick construction but the jacket is ugly as fuck lol. I feel like Simone should just quit making clothes and frame his beloved pieces of animal skin. For alot of these "designers" the actual product that customers put on their body seems like an afterthought.

    what would you guys rock with this, boot wise? i feel as though the color demands the denim be very faded, though the model Context or Schott used for their action shots wore dark raws with black boots, wolverines maybe.

    thoughts?

    I don't think it's ugly, just that if it wasn't A1923, you wouldn't even take a second look at it.

    I think just about anything but matching it to CXL natural boots. Because the natty CXL looks distressed, dark brown or black boots both look good. IMO this is one of the times that the "I don't give a shit" look really works. Simple, plain shirt, jeans and boots. Anything more will look like trying to hard, but again, just MHO.

    I think it's a jacket I might not take a second look at, because it's a pretty straight forward design, but once I got up close and saw that hide and stitching I would be intrigued. I like it.

    When I want to pull something out with a little age and patina, I throw this one on, makes a good pub jacket. Circa 1948, still in great condition with original lining and zips, the horsehide is totally sound and not fragile at all. I hope to hold onto this for a long time and see if it continues to develop.

    a friend just scooped this off eBay - i posted at the Schott Forum to see if anyone there can tell us more about it. I think it looks great and the seller said the interior tags date it to 1928/30 though, given the color of its zipper and snaps, seems suspect to me. Regardless, I like it. Thoughts?

    Very easy to date Perfecto jackets by their labels. If that is a bull on the left side of the label it is 1970s, if it's a motorcycle rider it is 1980s. A 1928 Perfecto, if one exists, or even 1930, in this type of condition, would not be sold on eBay. It would be sold at Sotheby's. Regardless, it's an interesting jacket, but looks like plastic replacement zips? I've never seen a Perfecto like this, but that doesn't mean anything. My biggest concern would be a 70s - 80s label on a jacket someone is claiming to be one of the very first produced Perfectos. Doesn't pass the smell test.

    I thought maybe the guy claiming the 30s designation might have been misreading a "vintage reissue" tag or something, but even the design seems more 70s to me. We discussed the sketchiness and saw the bidding was low enough that he'd be fine with it under any circumstance.
