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.
This Californian jacket dates from the 1960s or early 1970s, but has strong design influences from norfolk jackets of the 1920s. Somewhat surprisingly, the breast pockets are both false. It sports a four button front, classic lapels, and a nicely detailed pleated back.
