My Flathead Rider and Racer jackets have been worn quite a lot these past few months, thought whilst I have a decent camera in my hands I'd snap some pics.

First 3 pics are of the Rider, next 3 are of the racer. Stitching is immaculate throughout, as you might expect.

I have to say, even for Shinki leather, the Rider leather is on some other planet.

The extra "greasing" process Flathead put this one through (if anyone speaks Japanese - https://www.flat-head.com/items/srj-07c/ ) has resulted in just the juiciest leather I've ever handled, and I've been to Tokyo and handled, bought and worn tonnes of Shinki.

The Racer leather is also gorgeous; a much more familiar Shinki kind of leather for those who've owned any.

Any future leather is on temporary hold at the moment since, given global warming and that most of California is on fire at any given moment, I’m barely able to wear the jackets I already own!

That Flathead rider jacket looks great. This was the jacket I was eyeballing from R&H and now that TFH is no more it makes this jacket even more rare. The details of this jacket are perfect imo.

So who else makes a jacket that is close to TFH rider jacket? I was looking at some of Aero's offerings but can't decide if their fits look too boxy or not.
WTB:
IHSH-129 size L (blue)
IHSH-37 blue/orange L or XL depending on fit
IHSH-19

Of it’s any consolation Chicago is in an early deep freeze. Was 12f when i left the house this morning. Really too cold for most leather but I layered under an Aero D1 for the short commute.
