    You know what, buddy - I personally can live with looking at crappy jackets from time to time, but the people who are over the top snobbish and so full of themselves, make me sick to my stomach.

    You realize that calling me a tranny when my title here is literally "angry tranny" isn't really offensive, huh?

    Not me wearing it, but the designer, Drew Keith of Toj.

    The title said "Best leather jackets" and I happen to be one of many who thinks that when it comes to leather jackets (also non-leather jackets, boots, bags, belts, and jeans) value is often defined based on their heritage, age, or ability to stop asphalt from shredding your flesh away. And I believe that a vintage USN G1 jacket, is cool. I believe that the cotton wrists and waist being replaced at some point with leather makes it more interesting than the average G1. And I believe that a 40 year old jacket that is still holding up represents a superlative quality. You and I just have a different definition of "best" when it comes to leather jackets. No need to pity each other.

    You read "best leather jackets" and it translates as "cool looking jackets"

    I read "best leather jackets" and it translated as "(insert and maybe discuss personal reasoning here) leather jackets" and I assumed that others here might agree with me that heritage, age, and the ability to stop asphalt from shredding your flesh away might be an accepted definition of "best" regarding leather jackets... But I have since found the vintage clothing thread, so if nobody here agrees with me on my definition of "best" you can find me over there.

    In an effort to play with you guys, though, what do you all think of Lewis Leathers? If I had $1000 to spare, I'd throw both my leather jackets away and get one from Lewis...

    What I meant in my last post, was that I'm sorry. I'll be good.

    Probably a better idea to save yourself $300 and research TOJ if you want another leather jacket. They go for around $700ish. I've always disliked snap buttons on leather jackets. Makes no sense and "dates" the jacket immediately.

    For $700 you can get a leather from almost any brand. That is if he doesnt like toj.

    What type of leather on this 5-zip? Looks kind of matte, which is cool.. haven't seen a matte 5-zip since the lamb one I returned (had a rubberized coating).
