Pilots Cyclist jackets are the only option if you don't want to waste your moneyJoining in late as well...I've never really liked the ELC take on the French cyclist jacket. Like it was said by another member, we used to see quite a few of these about 20 years or so in flee markets in Europe. It used to be a pretty standard design for young fellows in the 1930s. I've almost pushed the buy button but never did as I always thought there was something missing with ELC's.
Seeing as most of the genuine cyclists have all disappeared or are labeled vintage jackets and now attract the hipster mob, it's getting pretty hard to find a decent second hand. Does anybody know of a maker that makes nice repros in Europe?
