Type A1 military leather jacket for French Cancan (last part)



My best A1 jackets for you…Japanese repros from Buzz Rickson, Real McCoy's or american from LVC. All are in snug sizes to fit tight !!! Military models in horsehide, coton with the famous USN type 37J1, wool with "wolf" chest insignia, black and red tartan from the last Buzz R. collection…hybrid 20's/30's motorcycle cafe racer with A1 design and pockets and unlined goatskin civil models…Cushman made A1 models few years ago in deerskin and Freewheelers have a fabulous natural color pointed flap pocket actually for sale. I don't know any other repros anymore…About american brand, I've never been satisfied by LVC leathers, compared to the details and fabrics of japanese manufacturing but those two models made in portugal and pakistan are so roots and poorly finished that they really look original…and queerly,  I use to wear them often !!! For info, I changed bad plastic buttons of the tan model with original casein 30's art deco ones…of course this detail is not a DETAIL !

  2. Sweet!
    New LVC looks like it's been rotting away for 75+ years ;-).
    I really like my LVC/Aero two-tone
    jacket,great cut/fit but very bad stitching,and ...it's monochrome.

  4. of course I forgot The few, aero leather, eastman and mCCoy who produce Military A1 JAcket. About Civil model I think that only Cushman manufactured one but I found a nice japanese brand "highnotch" I did'nt know wich propose one soon…
    About the bank Pat, no hold-up and no milliardaire parents…all by myself… vintage trade, artjob and music… and I could sell sometime my body :-)

  6. The green woolen one seems to have amazing waist detailing !

  7. Yes the woolen green and red plaid jackets have fabulous 20's waist knits style…I have never been disapointed with Toyo …maybe once this year with brown beach jacket … I've been disapointed by other japanese brands, sometime… and I don't speak about english ones… always good jackets but often far from the truth…

  8. So do you think Real Mc Coy or Buzz Rickson is the best if I want to buy a G1 A2 or B3?

  10. Among the various essential parts of motorcyclists protective gear are cruiser coats and bicycle trousers. There are a wide arrangement of styles and materials to skim in selecting these two bikers' embellishments. Motorcykel jakke
