A blog about the history of vintage leather jacket fashion and fashion production. I'm always looking for pictures of cool stuff send me some pics of your grandpa in a cool leather jacket and a story! I can also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently making my own leather jackets in Canada. Ask me and I will try and help you with whatever you need to know. Just click on comments at the bottom of each post to leave me a message or comment.
As my good friend Schrader rightly pointed out Vanson had an earlier tag then this, which was reflective of their more hippiesque jacket production in the early days. I owned several pieces from this period which included patch work hippy vests made with the leftovers of the good 1.3 mil natural leather!
