    Hey guys,

    I'm in the market for a leather jacket. I know nothing about them, but I like the idea of the colar-less moto jackets. I need one that's not too thick and slim fit so i'm not swimming in it like I am in my Grandpa's passed down leather.

    I also really love the distressed look, I've attached a pic of what i'm kind of looking for. If you know where I should look i'd love to know.

    I got myself two killer jackets at a western/vintage shop in Boston. Both are moto race style bombers that are distressed and worn. One is amber, the other classic black. Try looking at second hand or vintage shops that carry leather goods. If it's 100% leather and a good fit, a couple coats of mink oil should provide you what you are after.

    Or just buy a Schott and let is age. That will take awhile though.
