My father gave me his 25 year old leather jacket, but unfortunately it's been badly cared for over the years. There is one significant rip in the leather, and the rest of it is dry. Overall, jacket has impressive vintage look. What are steps I can take to maintain this jacket and increase its longevity?
So you want to pop your collar like the Fonz, huh? The jacket may be too broken in (and damaged) to really respond to treatment, but I have heard great things about the following method:
Are t-shirts appropriate? Ever? If so, where should I be shopping for them?
Don’t get confused by all this Grown Men Style jibba jabba—even grown ass men wear tees dude. And you don’t have to be spending $70 a pop at A-Wang, either. Hanes will get you to that James Dean swag—pair it up with a leather jacket, roll a pack of stogies in the sleeve and stunt hard as a greaser.
Hey bro, your blog really makes my think about the way I'm dressed. And I wonder what you say about the schott perfecto leather jacket. I thought about buying one, but then I saw some morons with the jackets.
At $480, the Perfecto is extremely reasonable which explains why every poser and his mother owns it. To be perfectly honest, outside of the Perfecto, you’re going to encounter much difficulty trying to find a quality bad boy style moto leather jacket south of $800. The only options that come to mind are copping the Belstaff H Racer or stumbling upon some vintage-grail-shit-hiding-in-a-consignment-shop piece. Good luck.
