    I've got an old Members Only jacket. Might need to dig it out. It could be back in style...and since I lost weight it might fit!

    I have several, including a couple of sport coats, a brown bomber jacket, and a black trench coat. My favorite of all of them is my Cooper leather field jacket ... 30 years and still going strong:

    I noticed, reppans ... but, I have a severe case of military-inspired epaulletes-ey (translation: I just like epaulletes because of my military background).

    Your's is actually more stylish, but, remember; I'm 70 so I have no knowledge or interest in style (but, I draw the line at white socks and black leather dress shoes with shorts!).

    I do kinda like the style, but I'll admit that catching it on an outlet clearance sale tipped the scale for me. Victorinox does some pretty neat practical things on the "sport coat" design... like load it with neat pockets, a stand-up/snap collar, and discrete zipper for better chilly/windy weather protection. I have another neat travel version made from ultra-light synthetic that folds into nothing, yet can reasonably cover both foul weather jacket and jacket & tie duty.

    My Westead leather "Raiders" jacket, in Lambskin.
    I'd live in this if it didn't boil me in the summer.

    Is it my monitor or did you get it in black? Lambskin? Must be so very comfortable. Like you, the only time I'm not wearing a leather jacket is during the summer or when I'm in workout attire, or when it's really raining hard, then I wear my gortex jackets. Love that Indian Jones jacket.

    I think it's a combination of your monitor and the photo being a bit off. It's the classic brown in real life.

    I also don't get to wear leather jackets at work. Curse of work having a uniform.

    I use to roll around in a leather pilot jacket when I worked for the airlines. I got from Gibson and Barnes in San Diego. Made in the USA and excellent customer service to boot. Some of the pilots didn't like wearing leather jackets since they thought it was too "fighter-pilotish." Beat the cheap blazer we had a uniform, especially in the rain...

    Another great company that does custom leather jackets and is heavily used by military and airline pilots is Popsleather. they do custom features on their jackets. That will be my next purchase.

    Have a bomber style leather jacket which was purchased at Sams Club probably 15 years ago still going strong! About 8 years ago I re-treated with a product called "leather lube" which was ok. Last year it received Obenauf's leather oil + obenauf's waterproofing spray. Couple tears in the liner but otherwise its in great shape. Works well as a top layer since it is uninsulated.

    I need to look for another one....haven't owned one for years.

    I'm pretty sure I want a stand collar, a pretty sim fit, and several pockets...also something light and soft...so either lambskin or synthetic....which is fine if it'll last.

    I just have no idea where to look.

    I have a Filson cowhide jacket which I really like but I don't wear it near as much as my lambskin or goatskin jackets due to the weight. Goatskin is much tougher than lambskin from my experience.

    This one is lambskin.

    Lambskin is more for comfort and fashion and not as durable. Goatskin and deerskin are more abrasion resistant due to the environment the animals evolved in.
