Nice jacket! what type and leather if I may ask?
Thx for posting.
I was told by Andy of BK this was made with a hide they sourced from Japan. It is veg tanned Horsehide with a pigmented finish. You can still see the pores of the skin though and some areas are wearing in, like corners which reveal the underneath of the pigment. Apparently they did not finish the leather according to BK’s satisfaction and so only around 10 jackets were made from this hide which predates victory and liberty HH. This jacket was made around 2016 or so. It’s a nice jacket though and is tough as nails so I don’t need to worry about scratching it or catching it on something.
I don’t know if it’s shinki or not, but the wrinkles are from the hide.
Thx, great jacket anyway, great leather. Is it a Roughwear 27752?
Its a Dubow 27798
nickel Talon zip and United Carr ball studs
olive drab zipper liner(is this what you call it?), and mid brown stitching. Cotton mustard/tan jacket liner.
Perfect, just ordered the same two days ago.
I have already this jacket from Goodwear, so I can compare the quality of make...
Enjoy yours...its a great jacket.
I look forward to your pics. I would like to get a GW one of these days. Might have to wait till I strike gold someplace.
Thx...I like your words...strike gold someplace...
Nice Dubow Jeremiah
Pilot, be good to here a comparison of the two Dubows when you get your latest. Did you go for seal or dark seal?
Sure the comparison will be interesting. I ordered seal
You'll need to strike gold for a new ELC too these days!
Or pay the price some ELC reseller ask for...on fleebay.
Had to get the Irvin out today, it is the RAF's birthday. Bit warm though
Fine looking Irvin. You really should feed your dog more.
One of the nicest Irvin-repro on the market.
Still i’m not “far” enuff to distinguish the different Repop-Makers so which company did the Irvin?
Aero... new revamped model..
Yes, it a four year old Aero.
