    Shoes that look better with age...

    Those are looking good, @Aries I picked up these Viberg collab boots not too long ago. The shinki horsehide and the specific design details were too much for me to pass up. The grain probably won't be to everyone's taste, but I certainly love it and I'm sure these will age quite nicely. For a picture of something actually aged, I put a shot of my natty CXL Lofgrens at the bottom as well.

    Yeah, it does help get rid of the flare near the wrist and it makes the sleeves look less skinny overall.

    Well, I didn't have this ability until more recently, but I am very fortunate as it was the very last in my size and it's not a color they make often (FW, not McCoys).

    If I had to guess, I would say Attractions based on the stitching and the way the vamp is cut. However, the toebox doesn't make me think of Attractions

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    This is also in part why I went with the Sunset from freewheelers to satisfy my cross zip craving. I really doubt anyone is going to confuse me for an actual biker or poser-biker wearing a yellow-orange deerskin jacket with button cuffs.

    Wow those jeans are beautiful! I'm kind of glad they're out of my size as I'd probably impulse buy them otherwise.

    TCB

    Oooooh that's exciting. Even though I just got the LVC version, I'd still be interested in a TCB version.

    The Leather Jacket Thread

    I love the Brakeman jacket. I am fairly short and do have an issue with FW jacket sleeves being too long. The Brakeman jacket sleeves were not as long as many of the other models in my experience. They certainly are too long in that picture on the person wearing it, though.

    This jacket is being worn for summer/warm weather only. @MJF9 These are Oliver Peoples Benedict. It's their version of the classic aviator. Mine are made in Japan, but unfortunately I believe they have moved production of this and nearly all their models outside of Japan now. Here are a couple more pictures I took in my university bathroom. The sleeves are cuffed up in one and undone in the other. Curious to see what everyone thinks.

    My vote would definitely be the Leon if it fits you well.

    I'm REALLY bad at posing so I always just look away from the camera I will try undoing the cuffs and cuffing them myself. That's the one thing I don't like about the fit.

    I get that. I'm sure most would not want theirs to fit like this. I personally love how it fits. Part of it is how loose my CSF jacket looks and feels. If it were uncomfortable buttoned, then I would probably have to move it on and find a larger size if I could, but it's actually quite comfortable even buttoned and easy to move around in.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    The one I used was Tenso and they did a good job. I have not had to use them in a while though. My most recent 'proxy' is being done by a friend right now. It's not a McCoy's product though, it's Freewheelers from a store that doesn't ship to the USA.

    I would embrace it! They've already aged so drastically and they look great for it! My guess is you'll have a lot more little stains and scratches and it's best just to enjoy the process.

    Real McCoy's / Joe McCoy's Jeans

    That's your best chance. I was able to get something to me from a Japanese retailer back in 2015, but I tried again the next year and no dice. I did just proxy a jacket from a Japanese store that won't ship overseas. If you know someone who is willing to help you out, it's cheaper than using a service, but there are a lot of reliable services out there.

    I managed to grab a made in USA (with Cone denim) LVC triple pleat in my size. This jacket has been on my "to buy" list for many years and I figured I had to grab it before this version was completely gone. The fit is quite slim, especially when I compare it to my Conners Sewing Factory jacket. Even more than that, it is quite short. It's not uncomfortable to wear, but I've never worn such a short jacket and it feels like it's too short, but I like how it looks in the pictures. I didn't expect to like this one so much, but it's now already my favorite non-leather jacket. Makes me more sad about this fabric being no more. I took pre-soak shots of it on its own, but I still need to take post-soak shots of the fabric, though I'm sure those already exist in this thread (those fade pics above from @Paul T look great!). I'd love to find a duck version as well.

    Ah yes I had forgotten about this A-2. I always just think of the leather version from the interwar/WWII years.

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    A-2 jackets are terrible for warmth. Mine was my best jacket for wearing in warmer weather, but it was awful for actual winter wear. The lining is always thin cotton or silk and the leather is never very thick (relatively). What side straps are you talking about? Are we talking about different jackets?

    Agreed. That's a lot of money for thinsulate instead of alpaca. Too much in my opinion.

    Those role clubs look amazing as do those Attractions engineers!

    Pigeon Tree does offer this. I'm the same as you and I ordered all of my belts from him hand sewn instead of with metal fasteners.
