Holy Cow! or Horsehide! I can't believe it. Huge thanks to Ken for sponsoring this fun challenge. I saw some pretty nice jackets that I'll now have to be on the lookout for.

color and hide choice is purely subjective, so the ball is in your court with those options. for warm weather wear,, perhaps a lighter weight hide,, for cooler weather wear, a heavier hide may be in order. its important to get the size-fit right, and ya will not have to do it again, again, and again.

and this beauty is something i found almost 20 years ago






Manufacturer AMECO - never before heard about this company - i thought the jacket would look cool to wear on my chopper and bought it back then - never worn it ever since but still in my stash

If some forum member would fall in love with this jacket i would be open for trades and offers

ken's gift reminded me of back in the '70s when I was contracting nyc loft renos. and was sitting outside of this about to be renovated loft building in soho early one morning. I would get to the job site at about 6:30-7am and sit out front with my hit list to review, and a cuppa mud and a smoke. needless to say, I would be dressed in my work clothes [seriouly beat up work clothes]/ so, im sitting there coffee in hand and a suit and tie walks by, and drops a quarter in my coffee cup. reaction? motherfucker just dropped a quarter in my cup. wtf???? finished the mud, and fished the coin out to keep as a good luck coin. kharmar.
