2015-0121 Explorer / Dark Brown / Size 42-ish

In our Prototypes, Preowned and One-Off section, you can grab a great deal on some designs that did not pass muster for standard release jackets, leather trials and material and hardware trials. The jackets may not be 100% accurate, but if you are on a budget, you may find something perfect for you!

2015-0121 Explorer / Dark Brown / Size 42-ish

Postby Rick » Sat Mar 07, 2015 5:55 pm

This jacket will be going up for sale soon. The main reason it will be discounted is that it is a shade or three too dark, and the zipper ends 3 inches from the bottom. There are a few other details that are not what I requested, but since you do not know what they are, you will not notice them. This jacket will distress like a vintage jacket as it is the same leather as my personal Explorer.

I cannot tell you how nice the jacket is. It will break in nicely, has some beautiful grain and will drape perfectly.

It is not cow or goat. :smile:

I was going to replace the zipper and get it closer to the bottom, but did not want to risk having a poor job done. I have had two hack jobs done on jacket zippers and for that reason I am offering it as is. I have to get the sizing info later when I am in the studio.

Yes, this is the same leather used on my personal Explorer (except the darker color is closer to the color of the Ecstasy). Different from the Bruno though.

The sunlight really makes that leather look nice! Like a superdark brown.

Not that I'm looking to trade! :grin: I've barely taken the jacket off since I got it.

This jacket looks sooooo good!! I even like the darker shade. It reminds me of the G&B I used to have. Awesome jacket

You have to love the grain and texture of that leather.
