I inherited this jacket from my father and don't know a whole lot about it. A company called Lesco Leather made the jacket and the jacket is around 35-40 years old. It's held up super well and it is probably my favourite jacket. I could never buy anything remotely as well built as this. The leather is super thick and remains fairly stiff to this day. As far as I know it's never been treated with anything and was just worn the way it should be. The jacket needs a little fixing as the lining is pretty worn out. I'm going to be looking for someone to make a new one for me and fix a bit of the stitching on it.



The color in the last 2 images is the true color of the jacket now. The first 2 had flash and I didn't bother going back to take them again. Once I get around to treating my belt I post some pictures of before/after.

^^ vSwim09, what a fantastic jacket! I love that cut! I dont think they cut mens jackets like this anymore. Would be great to see fit pics too ;)

^ Ranchu, I really like what you have done to your wallet! You like a bit of DIY there and there

Time for a quick update

Made some new leather conditioner:

Pretty set on the current formula revision - had a lot of help from leather crafting friends too!

Replaced the bracelet on my watch with a deerskin strap:

Evo:



My friend Scott made me a whole bunch of goodies.
Tote bag made from Horween's Chromexcel (grained) leather and lined with Clayton's hairsheep:

The leather is full-grain, so the tote is quite heavy!


Smaller items:

Bracelets made out of British bridle from Clayton of Chesterfield:


Belt loop key holder with hand-made Damascus button:
