I’ve had several of their jackets. The dubow goat and the mid brown are ok. Both are closer then the oil pull and Visky hides. Having said that, the best grained hide they have is the Visky. But it’s fake aged. And overly done imo. So if you want to re dye it, you could have a nice one.I have my eye on a Five Star Rough Wear A-2. I’m trying to decide between their pull-up horsehide and regular mid brown horse hide. Which leather is closer to what was used in WWII?
Yes, I am making a GENERAL comment about ww2 For me, the classic ww2 hide is pretty "crude/cheap" looking.............in an awesome way!!!
Makes sense. But is the Five Star leather comparable to WWII leather?The one thing with the cheaper companies is that they can't match the leather of the big boys because otherwise their prices would shoot up. That's why the big boys cost more, a lot of it is leather.
Shawn's doing great stuff but at his price point, his leather just won't be the same as say, GW.
Yes, absolutely in that it is chrome tanned and pigment finished to my knowledge.Makes sense. But is the Five Star leather comparable to WWII leather?
