New ladies studded leather fashion jacket coming soon

Ladies leather fashion jacket

I’m getting excited about some new styles of leather jackets I have coming in soon. I would have had them in by now but there was a screw-up with the shipping method. Let’s just say I’ve found out a whole lot more about importing packages via cargo freight. 🙁

Anyways one of them I am getting is this great ladies leather fashion jacket you can see in the pictures. It’s modeled after a popular style from the brand name Affliction. I’m not trying to copy it, just make it close to how it looks.

As you can see it’s very form fitting with cool studs on the top shoulders. The collar is long and open, short of a Bolero type. I’m not sure if the front will have a button or two or if it will be simply open.

Womens leather fashion jacket

I put in a new order of leather jackets about a month ago, and they will finally be here next week sometime. There are two different jackets, both black ladies leather fashion jackets.

The one you see in the picture above has been popular, which is why I ordered more. It’s a womens black lambskin biker style leather fashion jacket. The leather is super soft and smooth, smoother than how the image shows it.

In fact I need to take some new pictures of it once it gets in, I hate not having good pictures so you can see all the details. I got a few each in sizes small, medium, large and XL.

leather hide thickness in leather jackets

thickness of leather hides in leather jackets

Hi everybody. I thought I’d make a quick post today about leather thickness after Curt asked about his buffalo leather jacket vs his cowhide one. Now as I’ve said many times, a leather hide is split into two or more layers when they process it. The top layer that had the hair on it is called the top grain layer. The other layers below it are the split grain layers.

So just how thick do they make the splits? How do they know how thick to make them? Well after all these years of making leather, the leather industry has come up with some standards for leather hide thicknesses. There basically are three main thickness levels, with some differences in each one.

The three levels are:
1.0 mm (or less) used for fashion leathers, purses and so on.
1.3 mm (1.3 to 1.5 average) This is the most common for motorcycle jackets and riding leather.
2.0 mm only used in Naked Leather.
So lets review those levels a bit more, shall we? [Read more…]

Do leather jackets keep you warm?

does leather motorcycle jackets keep you warm?


Hi everyone, hope your having a good weekend. I always go through my stats, which tell me what people are typing in to get to my little site here. That gives me a good idea of what people want to know. A lot seem to ask if a leather jacket will keep you warm. So I’ll explain a bit about that today.

Of course right now in the middle of summer you don’t need a warm jacket, but it will not be long before all you folks up north will be feeling cold. Since I’m from Vermont I know all about being cold! Plus I’m the type that gets cold easy, which is why my ass is down here in Florida. So, does a leather jacket keep you warm?

I wondered myself about that before I ever got my first leather jacket. Now as with anything, it depends on what kind of leather jacket it is, and what it has for a liner. Let’s just assume it’s a basic leather motorcycle leather jacket, or a bomber jacket. Those are the most popular and what most people are asking about. [Read more…]
