    The Leather Jacket Thread

    A place to discuss leather jackets, finally. I've got a few on my radar, including Rainbow Country's single rider (Sears Hercules repro) in veg tan horsehide: Or High Large Leathers' Guthrie model (Lee Cowboy repro) in horsehide: Or this Sugarcane adjustable collar horsehide half-belt:

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    Cold Summer, thanks for posting what I’ve been thinking about lately. I hadn’t paid attention to it in a while, but it came to my attention that so much of what is “modern”, from the schools of thought of Gropius, Bauhaus, van der Rohe, the International, and Brutalist, etc was based on the idea of “man as machine” and is truly de-humanizing and atomizing, and in many ways “modern” clothing styles are part of that process. And is anyone really comfortable with a world like that anymore? So, I’m glad we have what we have in this area and can keep something more humanistic alive, even if it’s through clothing.
  3. In that price range, Cushman.

    I wouldn’t mind Cushman’s black salt and pepper chinos. Also, the Brown’s Beach shawl collar cossack.
  6. Not to be pedantic, but it’s a watch pocket, not a coin pocket. That said, lint.

    Bryceland’s tokyo and hongkong

    Buying a pair at $200 is too high, I would walk from that deal. I’m in the same boat re: limited run and working with someone to have my stuff made in Japan but I would pass if it cost me $200 per pant to buy for sewing/fabric costs. Yes, patterning, grading, buttons, tags, shipping, customs etc would drive the real production cost up, but still. Then again I don’t have B&M overhead costs to pay. I’m surprised the black western shirt is the same price. I need these kinds of margins.

    Yeah, those denim chinos for example are very similar to the ones John Lofgren made some years back but are more than double the cost. I had been toying with the idea of reviving that pair and I certainly wouldn’t sell them for close to $400.

    Needs matching hat IMO.

    Wait, where can I see this scuffle? Don’t see anything on SOP’s IG.

    Yep, the 1939! Not in production anymore AFAIK but I think you could ask FW if they might have any left. Speaking of FW, looking at maybe the camel Golden Spike trousers.

    A ventile Moonstar All-Weather would be the cat’s ass!

    The 51 is more tapered than the 47 and 43. Speedway has measurements: https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412002/?l-id=rgm_item_en_recommend_widget https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412003-s/ https://global.rakuten.com/en/store/speedway-shop/item/1412003-s/ The 43 is listed as having the same thigh and knee width, but FW blog claims it’s slimmer. My w33 43 definitely feels a bit slimmer than the w32 47s I had.

    What about some Moonstar All-Weathers?

    The ‘47 is the widest and has the darkest denim, the 43 is a touch slimmer and lighter-colored, the 51 is the slimmest with the lightest denim. The 43 is the WW2 model and doesn’t have the yellow enamel-coated buttons and has green HBT pocket bags. Of the three, the 43 cut is my favorite.

    iconic denim photos

    Can't recall if FW did, but the Hammersmith isn't so far away. Dropping the triple-stitched scalloped yoke across the chest like this was popular into the '60s and '70s though:

    Yeah, a good subculture needs music to go with it. So many subcultures these days are just a look it seems. What do hypewear kids even listen to? Bieber? Anyway, Sandlotcore discussion is useless without pics: 1962 recreated: '50s OG:
  18. I'm a 10E Brannock, wore 10E in the 875 and 10 in Lofgren. I got some old 10D RW Pecos and the toe box is a bit narrow but the instep and heel are loose as hell. I think @ecsong187 found he had the same issue with them. I still wear mine, but they're kind of an odd fit. Also, the shaft is very wide at the top, so every time I stand up my pants just sit on top of the boot, Tsujimoto style (opinions will vary on whether or not this is acceptable, sometimes I rock it, othertimes it bugs me):

    Will do, we need those up there for obvious reasons.

    That would be one of the other editors, but I'm glad you like it.

    I hear you dude, but I can only assign fades that we actually receive; the majority of submissions are as you describe, with very few "boring", vintage-style fades. Thankfully we have been getting more leather/patina submissions, though. Still, I'm beholden to what people send my way, so if you guys want to start sending in more fades I'm all for it and then some.

    @MJF9 do you mean the infamous 'diaper butt'? I can't speak for the '51s but it isn't so bad on the '43s. Then again, I'm coming from the SC1947s, which had a ton of diaper butt to start off with, though it did settle down some. The FW '47s I had didn't have diaper butt, instead they had wedgie butt because I tried to size down one. The whole seat and even upper thighs were just too tight and I had to cut my losses. A fit pic might help here; I'd say some diaper butt is acceptable, even desirable of how jeans "should" look.
  23. Momotaro makes some interesting sashiko ones too.
