    The Leather Jacket Thread

    How does the quality of Y2 compare to Freewheelers or other top tier makers? Anyone here ever buy from OG Bros? I'm seriously thinking about jumping on the Original Garment Bros OG-2 https://ogbros.jp/leatherjkt2020_02/ or the OG-12 https://ogbros.shop/?pid=154167634 But cannot decide which I would prefer in the long run. I'm pretty sure, given the measurements, the fit would suit me in a 40... I'm thinking that the OG-2 would get more wear given my style preferences, but I do like a little longer jacket at times and own a couple of nice French-style work jackets -- from Vetra, Oni and 1st Pat-RN. So the longer style also appeals. Anyway, I have not owned a leather jacket since the aviator (with the sheep fleece collar) I had in high school in the '80s. So I know nothing about buying one.

    ^^ VERY nice. The toe guard is there to prevent the sole at the toe from wearing down too quickly. Not commonly put on rubber nitrile soles like these. Usually used to protect leather soles. I had them on a pair of Carminas. They bother me with all the clicking as I walk and I found they actually can cause a bit of slip sometimes. So I sent them to Dr. Sole for a resole once the leather soles had worn down. Goodbye toe guards.

    @shredwin_206 Wow. That's some nice, neat needlework! Your mum could end up with a ton of requests lol...

    Cheap. I just bought a new pair a couple of weeks ago -- for a lot more. I love them.

    I can't say the aesthetics of these items do much for me, but I absolutely love the methodology behind the pop punch knits. It's just super cool.

    Wow. Given the price and RDT's reputation, that is shocking.

    EMS is shipping to Canada. I've just ordered from Celluloid and UES, both used EMS. Let me know if you want me to ship it to you from here. It'll take longer, but at least you get what you want.

    ^^ Very nice. I attempted a couple of stitched panos last summer on a camping trip... They're not easy to get right.

    Thanks for the link @Broark. I LIKE these guys! The write up for the OG-12 is amazing: "Based on the flagship model "OG-2", a car coat like a sharpened Japanese sword has been completed. A leather Ichihara that creates an "adult defect" that doesn't suit young people."

    UES Denim

    I don't have a flannel, but own a wabash workshirt and assume the fits are similar. It is quite slim in the torso. I bought a size 3, but probably could have sized up to 4. It fits perfectly, but feels like it's on the edge for me.

    ^^ They might be right, but I've never had a pair of boots that looked like that, and I've owned many pairs of goodyear welted boots from different makers (never Oak Street though). Looks like sloppy stitching.
