The Sportster Leather Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on November 22, 2013):
Dear Mr. Dover,
I received the custom ‘Sportster’ jacket today and it fits like a glove. I’m 6’5”, 215 lbs. and have a difficult time finding a good looking leather jacket that fits me. In 2001 I ordered a custom G-1 made of horsehide (against the advice of Shaul because of the weight and stiffness). Over the years I have worn this jacket in all types of extreme conditions and it has held up beautifully and served me well. The horsehide seems to be just about indestructible and, over the years, has broken in nicely. I sent my old G-1 in to have the knit cuffs and lining replaced and decided to order the ‘Sporster’ in horsehide. The custom jacket is a perfect fit and of excellent quality as the G-1. The quilted lining is very comfortable. I’m looking forward to breaking this baby in (I forgot the squeaky sound of new horsehide!). I already know I’ll love this jacket as much as the G-1.
Thanks again for producing such an excellent quality jacket. Your attention to detail and custom fit is unsurpassed!
