    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.

    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?
