    Take a look at the Vanson / Thurston offering if you are looking for a double rider, or for a more Cafe style, the SF / Johnson Leathers design that is about to be revealed. Both are going to be well constructed with high quality leather, in your price point.

    Please rethink this purchase. It looks pretty bad designwise, like something a mid life crisis dad buys to be "trendy." It's a pretty ugly hybrid of peacoat styling in leather.

    I rather like my mid life crisis jacket thank you very much. Maybe my suede vintage Coach Jacket is more your style?

    With two layers of heavy leather in the front, it rarely looks good on most people. Go with a trimmer waist style and a front zip.

    Sage advice thanks Gus!
    I have a thing for Peacoat's and they handle the two layers way better in wool than in leather.

    Those jackets are really bad. The back of this one is even worse. Unbelievable they want $1K+ for this crap… unless of course you consider that a good investment in wanting to look like this guy.

    I haven't been on here long but I think it's really sad how many truly miserable people post their negative opinions. Maybe you should leave your opinions in junior high school where they belong. I am, however, flattered you took the time out of your busy day to search the web to find more pictures. You must be very successful in life.
