New leather Jackets

I was looking for a new leather jacket and I am very upset due to the quality and design of new Jackets...Everywhere i went and looked at the jackets I could swear that Michael Jackson designed them 25 zippers , zippers exposed to scratch the tanks finish, the sleeves at the wrist so big you could call them bell bottoms..The colors were horrid..
Looks like i will take my 20yr old Hein Gericke to a leather shop and see if it can be repaired..

I am not into the flashy crap they are trying to sale . I just want a black leather jacket that has leather thicker than tissue paper .

Look at the Alpinestars Hero or JD. Personally I don't like the JD's elbow design. Both are black leather 1.1mm.

Check out Vanson Leathers....

Their stuff is pricey, BUT, well worth it... I have had mine for a while...been down in it...and nothing that some polish every now and then doesnt hide.

Well cut..I wear mine thourhg the year...

Armor is avail, as well as liners....

BTW, teh dye has NOT EVER bled.....

If you can find a place to try one out...go for it.... a good place online to get a decent price them, is, or somethign like that.
