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 email@example.com. 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.
I still don't understand why so many people in the leather community associate ridiculous weight with quality. So many leather jackets of the 1920s and 1930s were made of lightweight suede or capeskin. Many were unlined. They were the nylon windbreakers of their day.
